Beyond the Basics of Henna Brows

Today, brows are incredibly significant. We not only pay close attention to how they appear and spend time in front of the mirror trying to draw them on, but we also judge people based on how their brows appear. We all condemned Cara Delevigne's heavy brows before they were fashionable, and we also judged Rihanna's very thin brows on the Vogue front cover. Whatever the case may be, it would have been such a wonderful thing if we could just wake up with the best version of our brows on our faces. However, the time has come to consider several approaches for achieving this goal. Aside from microblading, there's a new brow trend that's gaining traction: henna brows. You may have heard about it, but if you haven't, here's what you need know:

What are Henna Brows?

This is most likely the first question that comes to mind. Henna brows are a type of eyebrow tinting that uses henna. Using high-quality henna pigment, this procedure is used to dye the skin beneath the brow hairs. Henna eyebrows are used to create the sense of depth and fullness in the area by casting a shadow in the brows. It also fills in any gaps that you may be feeling. The good news is that henna is a natural color manufactured from a plant known as the henna tree, thus the process is 100% natural. This dye and procedure have been around since the time of the ancient Egyptians, and it was used not just for dying hair, but also for dyeing textiles and linens.

What should I be thinking about?

Nowadays, an increasing number of people are opting for this technique, and many musicians are performing it. However, it's critical to understand the goods that your artists use.

How Does the Procedure Work?

Henna is often quick and simple to apply, taking approximately half an hour to an hour. The brow line is waxed and tweezed into the desired form, and then the artist applies the appropriate henna hue. The henna powder and demineralized water are combined to create a lovely paste that will be applied to your brows and left on for around 15 minutes (just long enough to be soaked in nicely).

Henna Brows: How Long Do They Last?

Henna brows normally last 2 to 4 weeks, however this varies widely depending on your skin type. Your henna brows will remain slightly longer if your skin is drier than if it is oily. You should also be aware that skin diseases such as psoriasis, dermatitis, and eczema might have a significant impact on your final outcome.

How Do You Keep Your Henna Brows Looking Great for a Longer Time?

There are a few things to keep in mind in addition to hiring a professional artist who employs high-quality equipment. First and foremost, do not wet your henna brows for the first 12 hours after they have been applied. Also, use as few cleaning chemicals as possible, and don't over-apply brow creams. You don't want to remove the henna color off your face, so don't overwash it or exfoliate it. Another thing to avoid is spending too much time in the sun, as the sun's rays may fade your henna color. Conditioners and nourishing oils, on the other hand, can help them last longer.

What Makes Henna Brows Different From Other Temporary Eyebrow Tintings (Like Microblading)?

Henna brows are distinct from other temporary eyebrow tintings in that they are a safe and natural alternative to other forms of dyes and tints, as well as makeup. It's vegan-friendly, which is a popular feature among customers, and the henna dye is free of peroxide activators, so even those with sensitive skin can use it. If you're not ready for cosmetic tattooing or microbladed eyebrows, it's also a terrific option to have killer brows. Henna brows last a lot less than microblading, but they're also incredibly temporary compared to microblading.

How Many Shades Do You Have?

Brown, blonde, burgundy, black, and golden brown are the most common henna dye hues. If your hair color differs somewhat from the henna dye, the artist can always combine the two colors.

What Does Henna Brows Cost?

Although the price varies widely depending on the salon and artist who will be caring for your henna brows, you can expect to pay between $20 and $45, and you will need to renew your color after a few weeks (once you see that your dye is fading or coming off).


If you're unhappy with the form and condition of your brows, you should definitely try at least one method for making them fuller and more aesthetically acceptable. As previously stated, if you're not ready to commit to a more permanent solution like microblading, henna brows are a great alternative.
