Best eyelash tint brands - 18-08-09, 01:50 PM

HI all

I have been away from beauty therapy for a while and am currently doing my nail tech course. I am also thinking about adding a few beauty treatments in conjunction with this, since i am alredy qualified :O)

First treatment i was going to advertise was eylelash and brow tinting.

Just wanted to fish for advice on the best brands to go for.

Thanks

Sara

Hi - I use Salon systems - i buy from capital hair and beauty and it doesnt cost alot for a kit of blue,black,brown and grey. Includes dappen dish too. The tint comes out really nice. You don't have to buy something really expensive as this does the job very nicely and my clients live it!

Hi

I like Refectocil as they do a wide range of colours including 2 shades of brown.

I like their light brown for blondes and they also do a red which i recently discovered you can mix with either or both browns to perfectly match a redhead's hair.

I don't think they do a kit as such. Beauty Express sell it. Possibly Hive. It's not everywhere though.

They most certainly do - try Hive they do a full size kit or a student one.

I got some good deals on Refectocil at the Professional Beauty show which is coming up soon so worth a look if you're going.

Thuya is a good brand which offers a number of different coloured tints and they also do kits for perming as well. Ellisons is their main supplier over here.

As long as you have a tinting qualification that is sufficient for buying and using any of the brands.

Hive no longer sell Refectocil. We use Refectocil - good choice of colours.

Thanks for the heads up on the starter kit, but the one that I originally saw, had a complete range of colours.

I've just called Refectocil in Austria and they gave me their UK distributor's website. Guess what! No mention of Refectocil on their website.

Back to the drawing board. xxx

I will do.......remind me though as I have a memory like a sieve.

It's funny but as amazing the internet is, sometimes it's hard to find basic information isn't it. xxx
