Choosing the perfect shade for your client’s brows can be tough, especially if they don’t know what they want. Here are a few tips to make the choice simpler.
While some clients make your job easy and know exactly what they want, others need a bit more guidance. For clients who aren’t sure what colors will look best on them, you’ll need to be able to provide them with a bit of guidance. Here are some tips to help you choose the best brow color for your client every time.
Unless your client is going for an extreme, high-fashion look, their brow color should generally be within two shades of their hair color.
Most commonly, people dye their brows a shade or two darker than their hair color. For example, medium-brown hair will look great with dark-brown brows. The one exception to this is black hair—black brows with black hair can look harsh on some people, so make sure your client knows a dark brown is a good option as well.
That said, exactly matching the brow color to the hair color is not essential. If the color matches the tone of the hair, you should be fine. For example, if your client has platinum blonde hair, a warm-toned blonde on her brows would be off-putting. In the same way, a client with warm, mahogany brown hair will look odd with a cool-toned brown on her brows.
Make sure you’re matching warm colors to warm colors and cool colors to cool colors, and you’ll be winning the color-matching game in no time.
Advice for Blondes
Natural blondes are more likely to have very fair eyebrows—in some cases, you may not be able to see the full shape of the brow without makeup on. In these cases, darkening the brows is a great way to revolutionize your client’s look, especially if they’re interested in something bolder.
Bleached brows are usually only seen on the runway, even if your client is sporting platinum blond hair. Instead, opt for a cool-toned blonde or even a light brown.
If your client has recently gone blond and feels that their natural brow color is too harsh now, lightening their brows one shade can be a great way to soften up their look. There are plenty of great options for eyebrow tint colors for blonde hair, so don’t be afraid to work with your client and figure out exactly what it is they’re looking for.
Advice for Brunettes
If your client is a natural blonde-going brunette, they’ll likely need to dye their brows darker to match. Light eyebrows with dark hair can look jarring—some individuals with a more alternative style love this effect, but it’s definitely not for everyone.
Most people’s brows are darker than their hair naturally, so a natural brunette going lighter will likely not need to dye their brows at all. In fact, the brows being darker than the hair tends to create a striking look and make the eyes the focal point of the face.
Choosing the best brow color for your client is an art form. With this guide, we hope your next consultation will be easier.
