Are you looking for a beautiful brow that lasts, without painful permanent techniques?

Wanting to avoid fake looking caterpillar brows? Fed up of tints that simply don't last?  I hear you! I am so pleased to now be able to offer you a brow design and tint service, using henna tinting for a longer lasting look. The brow is mapped and shaped according to the shape of your face and your preference to achieve a natural look that frames your face. Then a natural henna dye is applied to stain the skin and hair for a fuller, longer lasting tint effect.
