The procedure is quick and relaxing. Clients choose from brown, black or the more dramatic ‘blue-black’ (typically for lashes). We will also customize a color based on your natural hair color for a very natural look. If you’re a contact lens wearer, you remove them. You sit, wearing a protective towel on the neck so the dye doesn’t get on clothing. A protective cream is applied, under the eyes, which prevents the skin from getting stained. Then a thin cotton pad shaped in a curve goes on top of the cream. Clients are asked to shut their eyes, and the tint is applied to lashes with a fine brush, and allowed to set for at least 10 minutes. With your eyes still shut, we begin to remove the dye with a cotton pad dampened with water. This might take a few minutes of gentle strokes and several pads. When the excess dye has been removed, you open your eyes; we clean up the under-eye area and the lid with additional dampened pads, if there is staining.
