How great would it be to wake up in the morning and have your eyebrows already good to go?
With henna, you can temporarily tint your eyebrows in a painless and all-natural way so they’re shaped every morning, with no need for pencils or powders.
The service is fairly new to New Zealand, but henna dye has been used for thousands of years for body art and temporary tattoos.
Henna brows are a form of eyebrow tinting that is used to stain the skin beneath the brow hairs. The purpose of this is to cast a shadow or create an illusion of depth and fullness in the area, visually filling in any sparseness.
Henna is a natural dye made from a plant known as hina or the henna tree. Henna has been around since ancient Egyptian times when it was used for many purposes such as dyeing hair, clothes, fabrics and as make up.
The process for henna brows is very similar to henna colouring methods you may see in traditional Indian culture, however the shades have been formulated to cater for eyebrow tones.
Henna powder and demineralised water are mixed together to create a paste, which is then applied through the shape of your eyebrows and allowed to soak into the skin for 10-15 minutes.

Henna is a safe and natural alternative to tints and dyes. It is vegan friendly and free from peroxide activators, making it a suitable option for anyone with sensitive skin.
Most clients prefer the Henna brows to traditional tinting as the henna is a natural product and generally produces longer lasting results.
It has been beneficial to those wanting better definition to their eyebrows perhaps not quite ready to tackle cosmetic tattooing or microblading eyebrows.
The results of henna brows typically last between 2-6 weeks, but it’s dependant on your skin type. If you have a dryer complexion, henna brows will tend to last a bit longer than they would on someone with an oily complexion.
Henna works best on clients with healthy skin. Skin conditions like psoriasis, dermatitis and eczema will mean the henna won’t last as long.
The more brow hair the better – people with little hair in their brows won’t see as long lasting results.
