STEP-BY-STEP-TUTORIAL HENNA BROWS
1 - View our Henna Brows Tutorial on Youtube
2 - Perform a patch test 48 hours before treatment
48 hours before applying the henna tint to the eyebrows, test it on the inside of the arm. Only if you have not obeserved an allergic reaction to one of the ingredients, you may apply the henna tint on the eyebrows.
3 - Pick your Henna color
Chose out of 5 Henna Eyebrow Tint colors by Marie-José & Co. If unsure which color suits you best, take a look at our Henna Brows Colour Card. If in doubt, go for a lighter colour. Did you know that you can also mix our Henna Eyebrow Tint powders to achieve your favorite brow color?
4 - Thoroughly cleanse the eyebrows
Clean your eyebrows with an oil-free eye make up remover. Even if you are not wearing any make up, it is absolutely necessary to remove skin oil from your eyebrows. Use (if at hand) a cotton pad with alcohol to remove oil from your skin and from your brow hairs. The henna tint is less suitable for a (naturally) oily skin. Use a gentle scrub to eliminate any dead skin cells.
5 - Shape the eyebrows

6 - Protect the skin around the brows
Use our special White Stick around the area that you want to tint. This will prevent any unintentional stains on your skin. Do NOT apply any gel on your eyebrows as this will prevent the dye from sticking to the skin. Use plastic gloves to prevent Henna stains on your hands.
7 - Mix Henna Powder with water
Take about three pinches of henna powder and put it into a small plastic or glass dish. The content of one sachet is enough for at least 3 to 5 applications when used economically. Do NOT use metal dish! Mix the powder with a few drops of water to achieve a thick paste. We advise using a pipette when adding the water. Wait 3-5 minutes until water is completely dissolved. Cover your working area with an old rag or towel to prevent stains on the surface (e.g. on the table).
8 - Apply Henna Paste to Brows with angled brush
Now apply the Henna paste on your eyebrows. We advise using an angled brow brush to achieve perfect results. The angled brow brush allows you to work very precisely and create straight lines. Use a cotton bud to wipe of any excess residue that accidently got on the skin around your eyebrows. You can also use eyebrow stencils to create the perfect brow shape.
Henna tint can be quite intense, so do NOT leave it on your brows for too long. We advise leaving the Henna paste for 10 to 20 minutes on your eyebrows before removing it. Especially when using this Henna tint for the first time, do not leave it on your brows for too long. Ideally aim for a shorter exposure time. As a rule of thumb, the longer the exposure time, the darker the result.
9 - Remove Henna Paste with water
To remove the Henna paste from your eyebrows, first wipe your brows with a dry cotton pad. Then wipe your brows again, this time with a wet cotton pad to remove any residue. There is no special remover for Henna tint. If you accidently stained areas around your eyebrows, try removing it with tint remover as soon as possible. Always prevent accidentally staining your skin by covering your skin with skin protection cream or Vaseline.
