I always get a bit of a shock when ladies at work have their brows dyed. It does fade quite a lot in the first few days, though.

@Araya:  Don’t panic….. Ive had mine tiinted in the past and they only looked like that for a couple of days and then they faded. I think part of it is the dye is on your skin which makes it appear darker. Give it a couple of days and a few times washing your face and they should fade.

@Araya:  I can second that the skin underneath gets dyed during the process. that makes them seem way darker than they actually are.  it takes 1-2 days to totally fade. sometimes I use an exfoliating scrub to try to get it to come off faster (just be sure to not scrub against the direction of the hair).

I never tried it, but I bet that if you have any face creams with retinol or alpha hydroxy acids, it would make the dye fade faster on both the hair and skin underneath. I’m only guessing though, so try at your own risk!

by the way, I just dye my own brows at home, using regular hair dye (purchased at sally’s so I can know what undertones the colors are). I use a tiny fine tip paint brush (purchased at an art store) to apply it so I don’t get the dye outside of the eyebrow shape, and I only use light brown dye so it doesn’t go too dark. that helps a lot.
