"When hair color changes it impacts the arches," says Boom Boom, owner of Boom Boom Brow Bar, referring to eyebrows, "so it’s a good idea to tweak them," she advises colorists for when changing clients haircolor. 

According to Boom Boom, tinting is the best way to change brow color, plus it makes brows look thicker and longer. Here she offers tips to colorists on color selection:



Go darker versus lighter to frame and define eyes

If hair and skin has natural warm tones, stick with a warm tone, same for cool. 

Use a brow powder or pencil to add length and width

Never lift brow color – when hair grows the regrowth will show



Blondes tend to look washed out when brows are not defined, choose a color that’s a tad bit darker than natural haircolor to make eyes pop. 



There’s nothing better that full, rich, beautifully shaped brunette brows – they are the envy of all. Liz Taylor, Audrey Hepburn, Sophia Loren, Madonna… need we say more?



Do not match brows to the hair on your head, you need a slight contrast, so go a little darker to spice things up.  You want your brows to blend in with your overall look, not stand out as a sidekick to your mane.
