After a summer of growing out my brows in all their full and natural (and sometimes unruly) glory, I was ready to have them cleaned up and sculpted for the fall. I headed straight to the Benefit Brow Bar in my neighborhood (click here to find one in your hood). As I was sitting in the chair, Roxy, my waxer asked, “Do you want a brown tint? I think it’ll look good on you.” What? The only time I ever died my brows was the short period that I died my hair chestnut brown (that’s a whole other story). But always up for a beauty experiment, I was game. So, using their vegetable-based dye, Roxy whipped up my custom shade brow tint and carefully applied the glaze-like color. I was amazed what a subtle, yet kind of dramatic difference it made to the look of my brows. They are just a little more defined and look even more full. I’m now totally obsessed because instead of making them just darker, I realized they are uniform in color. Much better. Check out the before and after — can you see the difference like I do?
Would you ever dye your brows?
