How To Dye Your Eyebrows

How to dye your eyebrows. The perfect eyebrow is like the new size 0 - seemingly unattainable, unless you're a celebrity. Just how do celebs manage to get those pretty, shapely eyebrows? Known as the "brow resuscitator" in Hollywood, Bobbe Joy will show you how to achieve the perfect color for your eyebrows - permanently.

Step 1: You will need

  • cotton pads
  • toner
  • eyebrow dye
  • dye developer
  • a disposable wand
  • dye stain remover

Step 2: Prep Your Brow

Start with a clean brow. Make sure any residue of makeup or oil is removed from the brow hairs. Any oily deposits may affect the efficacy of the coloring agent.

Step 3: Determine Your Shade

The general rule is this: if your hair is dark, your eyebrows should be dark or one step lighter, if you're blonde, they need to show so you can go one step darker. If you go really dark, you'll have roots growing in and they'll show so you have to be careful going too dark or too light.

Step 4: Prepare To Dye

Make the dye solution right before you use it. Mix the dye and developer at a one to one ratio, and create a thick paste.

Step 5: Apply Dye

Mudpack on the dye making sure to reach the roots of the eyebrow hair.

Step 6: Time It

After 3 minutes, wipe the dye off with a dry cotton pad and inspect your brow. If the color didn't “take”, reapply the dye and wait another 3 minutes.

Step 7: Wipe It

Using a dry cotton pad, wipe off the dye first. Then go over your eyebrow with a second pad lightly soaked with the dye stain remover. This will stop the dying action.

Step 8: The Finishing Touches

Finish by tweezing and shaping your brows. Pencil in any bald spots.
