Eyelash Extensions – Classic, Hybrid, Volume – Which to Choose?

 

Gone are the days where there was only a simple choice strip or classic lashes!! The ever-evolving beauty industry now has developed several options for clients to choose from.

But what’s best for me you ask?  Well we’ve tried to simplify the differences between the different types of eyelash extensions that we offer in Adelaide, Canberra & Darwin below.

Classic Eyelash Extensions

 

Classic Eyelash Extensions

This option is where our lash technicians to apply one extension to one natural eyelash. At the end, the person gets an enhanced lash line that has a realistic natural appearance. We can only apply extensions to as many natural lashes you have. Therefore, if you have sparse lashes and are looking for a full look, then Classics are not going to be your option.

Classic Lashes are recommended to those people who wish their lashes to have a natural yet beautiful look or a 1st timer to the lash extension world. (be careful once you’ve been lashed… you’ll never go back).

Volume Lashes

 

Volume Lashes

This option will give you a fluffy and fuller appearance by applying multiple extensions ‘fans’ to every one of your natural lashes.  It is why Volume lashes provide amazing results to those people who have a thinly dispersed lash line, fine lashes or those who want really full lashes.

Hybrid Lashes

 

This is a 50/50 mixture of Volume and Classic lashes offering a more textured look giving you the best of both of them. Hybrid Eyelash Extensions are a great way to add volume, to see the potential look it can provide you. It is also great for the people with sparse lashes who want to make their lashes voluminous.

Lash Extensions Difference

Browz & Beauty Westfield Marion beauty salon and Westfield Woden beauty salon offering all 3 eyelash extension options.

Browz & Beauty Gateway Darwin beauty salon offers our signature Classic Eyelash Extension at this stage.

What is Brow Henna?

 

Brow Henna is a type of Eyebrow Tinting that stains the skin lying under the brow hair and colours the brow leaving long-lasting, luscious tint that can last up to 6 weeks in the hair and up to 14 days on the skin. Brow Henna has 99.5% natural ingredients as its constituent. With a wide range of colours, it allows a person to find the ideal blend that is suitable for any hair colour or skin type. 

What Is the Difference Between Henna and Brow Tint?

Eyebrow Tinting slightly stains the skin and after a day or two, it fades to a natural, subtle finish. It takes approximately 3-5 minutes for the colour to develop, and there are several varieties of shades that are mixed to match your hair/skin tones.

Brow henna service provided by us in Adelaide, Canberra and Darwin locations stands perfect for people who have sparse brows, as it colours the skin in order to create a ‘powder-filled’ look. It lasts longer than the average eyebrow tints. Due to the natural ingredients of the product, it suits most clients who generally have sensitive skin.

How Long Will This Last?

This question will depend on many factors. Clients with oily skin may find the results don’t last as long as a normal skin type.  Also, if you use a lot of facial products, the henna will fade quicker.

Is There Any Aftercare for Henna Brows?

After your brow henna service, we recommend the following:

  • Add Eyebrow Threading or Waxing to your appointment to get optimal results
  • Do not wet the eyebrows for as long as possible ( at least for the first 12 hours)
  • Use as little products on your brow area as possible 

Browz & Beauty is a leading beauty salon located in Gateway Shopping Centre NT, Mitchell Centre NT, Westfield Marion, SA & Westfield Woden, ACT.

Benefits of Waxing in Winter

Did you know?
Regular waxing results in the hair growing back softer, finer, and thinner!!

It’s no secret that for most of us during the Winter months our waxing routine gets shelved, along with our bikinis!!! But we need to remember it probably more important to upkeep your maintenance in order to have your skin Summer ready for when it finally comes around again and having to retrain your hair growth can take up to 2 – 2 months ? So let’s not risk it ladies!

If you still need some convincing, keep reading as we’ve included a few more facts…

1. Cold weather generally means our skin doesn’t get shown as often, however the downside of wearing pants every day means there is daily friction caused against the hair shafts resulting in uneven hair growth and ingrown hairs.

2. The colder winter weather is extremely harsh on our skin and this means that just moisturising alone won’t be sufficient enough to deeply hydrate your skin. Waxing opens up your pores and gently exfoliates your skin by removing dead skin cells, which allows moisturiser to be easily absorbed by your skin

3. Lastly, by keeping up the same waxing schedule you had in the summer will ensure that you are always going to be prepared for those last minute parties that require you to flash a bit of skin ?

Everything you need to know if you are or have ever considered Cosmetic Eyebrow Tattooing!!

Eyebrow tattooing has come a long way from the thick, obvious block-shaped eyebrows you might be imagining. The new style of brow tattooing, mostly referred to as feather touch tattooing or micro blading, is becoming so popular most qualified technicians are booked out months in advance!!
 
If you thought having on fleek brows 24/7 was impossible… well not anymore!  After your eyebrow tattooing session, you can say goodbye to brow pencils and powders, and although you do still need to maintain your brows (with threading or waxing), your finished look will be a fuller, perfectly styled brow.
 
But before anything permanent is done, Jeevi will discuss with you the end result you are looking for…
 
“Firstly I will sit down with the client to have a lengthy chat about what type shape they are looking, I will take some measurements of their face and initially draw on the shape which would be best suited for their facial features.  We can then draw, and re-draw the shape as many times as needed until myself and the client are happy ?. There are no time limits when it comes to the consultation process as it’s my most important policy for my client to be 110% happy and confident with the shape before I proceed”.
 
Rest assured you own hair isn’t removed!! Using a hand tool with fine needles, Feather strokesare made through your existing hair to visually fill inthe sparse hair areas and create a more bold, fuller shape.  The procedure normally takes around two hours in total in which you are lying down for.  This time also includes the time we take to let the numbing cream kick in first!  Yes, that’s right you don’t have to go this procedure alone… numbing cream is applied to ease any potential discomfort you may experience? However, most clients have described the pain as a 2 out of 10 and resembles a scratchy like sensation.
 
Our regular pricing structure will be as follows:
 
$450 (including 4-6 weeks touch up)
6-8 week touch up $50
8+ week touch up $100
6 month touch up $150
Annual touch up $200

 
 

Overtime the pigment in the strokes will blur into a soft and extremely subtle ‘wash of colour’. Oily skin types can have the pigments break down and blur the ‘crisp’ lines at a faster rate than dry skin types would.  This is the reasons why we highly recommend that you commit to all touch-up appointments to ensure your new eyebrow look investment lasts and stays fresh!
 
Cosmetic Eyebrow Tattooing is also a viable option for those going through chemotherapy or people with alopecia.

Eyelash Extensions – After care tips

Now you have your new luscious lashes to show off to the world, however tempting it may be please resist touching them for at least 3 hours.  It’s also best to avoid spray tans, exposure to steam/heat & we also give you permission to have the day off from the gym!!

For the next 24 hours, try not to get your lashes wet either, this will give the adhesive the best time to set & ensure the longevity of your amazing new lashes!!

Finally, the most important tips are to wash & brush your lashes daily & with new naturally bold lashes, there’s no need for mascara.

We recommend the use of a specially formulated eyelash extension sealant, max2Lash Coating Sealant to be applied every 2-3 days to protect your lashes from moisture, oils, perspiration, dust, and debris

Transforming your look from DAY to NIGHT in 3 Simple Steps!

Your March diary is full with Adelaide’s Mad March festivities, but long days in the office have left your skin and make-up looking a little worse for wear by 5pm…Not everyone will have the luxury to head home for a total makeover before heading out after work, so here are a few tips for the simple desk-to-drinks switch.

 

FACE

Pairing primers with long-wear foundationswill improve longevity for day-to-night looks. Dusting a lightweight powder over the skin will control shine.Change your lip colour – This is one of the easiest ways to take a look from day to night. If you wear a nude during the day, change it up with a red for after 5.

 

HAIR

Let your hair down! If you prefer to have it up during the work day, put it up with intention to let it down! Find a way to style it so it will still look great when it’s that time to let it down… But when all else fails, a messy top knot is your ‘go to’ look.

 

OUTFIT

Just a few slight tweaks to you 9-5 outfit are all that is needed. Slip off the suit jacket, enhance your accessories, add a clutch and finally swap the comfy flats to stunning stilettos!!

Seasonal Skincare Tips

Hello Autumn!

 

skin can be in need of some TLC after months of sun and sea exposure. Keep your body beautiful and happy from head-to-toe this Autumn with some of our simple tips to help ease your skin into Autumn.

As your largest and fastest-growing (not to mention visible) organ, your skin is unarguably something worthy of your time, attention and care.

So,what’s the secret to healthy, glowing Autumn skin?

 

CLEANSE The first step to restore your sun kissed summer skin is to use a creamy Cleanser that will cleanse and soften. A benefit of facial cleansing is to remove all the dirt, oil, and other unwanted debris from your face. Throughout the day the skin on your face is continually covered with bacteria, pollutants, viruses, dirt, and old (dead) skin cells.  (YUK)

 

EXFOLIATE The second step is to gently exfoliate to remove all dry/dead skin cells on the surface of the skin and is one of the most important aspects of your home skincare routine for face and body. Exfoliation not only helps many skin problems, it also increases blood circulation, which in turn helps you to achieve healthy and glowing skin.

 

MOISTURISE It goes without saying that your skin needs moisture all year round but it is even more important now.  It will boost hydration in your skin, prevent flaking and dullness, and create a protective layer of moisture that lasts all day. Plus, proper application of a face cream will also prevent skin aging JJ

Why you should LOVE facials!

 

The skin is your body’s largest organ. The skin on your face is thinner than the skin on your body and is also the most exposed to the elements. Skin cells are there to block all the bad stuff from entering your body but also to let all the good stuff in. With the skin cells of the face being smaller this means that hydration is let out much easier than the rest of the body. Your face as it is more sensitive shows your lifestyle and bad decisions more quickly and easily than the rest of your body. As your face is the first thing most people will notice about you, you want to take extra special care of it so that it is radiant and healthy. A facial is a great way of taking care of the skin on your face and they do a lot more than you think. Browz & Beauty have a range of facials to tackle a wide variety of skin concerns and conditions. We are here to make sure you get the best treatment for your individual requirements and leave our salon LOVING your Face!

Our professionally trained aesthetician will closely look at your skin and discuss with you what treatments would best suit your skin type and your desired outcome. Our beauticians are trained to recognize complex skin complaints and help you plan an action course to resolve or alleviate them.

 

Clear your pores, deep cleanse, professional exfoliation:
Leave your extraction to us. Although some people find pimple and black head popping extremely satisfying it is best left to an expert. We are able to extract and clear your pores in a hygienic manner meaning fewer breakouts. This allows your skin to breathe better and look healthier.

Brow & Lash Tinting

Brow & lash tinting involves dying your hairs to create a more consistent look and maintains the colour of your brows. Tinting is an easy method to make your brows fuller and thicker to achieve your desired look effortlessly.

Benefits of Tinting:

  • Tinting will last for a long period of time between 2-3 weeks so you don’t have to worry about touching up your brows.
  • The tinting procedure is painless and very quick.
  • Tinting will save you heaps of time putting on daily makeup.
  • Tinting adds colours to your face and brightens up your eyes.
  • If you are sensitive to mascara or wearing contact lenses, tinting is all you need to avoid hours of putting up with heavy eye makeup.
  • Tinting is ideal for those who are active in sports or go on a holiday to the beach since tint doesn’t easily wash off like mascara.
