Which colour shade is suitable for which client?
There are 9 different colour shades for tinting eyelashes and eyebrows or for lightening eyebrows. Before tinting discuss with the client their wishes and expectations. With the help of the Refectocil Colour Chart you can easily show, which tinting results can be achieved from the different colour shades. Some shades are suitable for every natural hair colour (pure black, blue black, natural brown, chestnut, red, blond); other shades are suitable only for lighter natural hair colours (deep blue, graphite, light brown). On the colour-chart no colour result is indicated for unsuitable combinations.
What is the correct seating position for the client when tinting eyelashes and eyebrows?
The correct position for the client during tinting is not lying down, but sitting and/or slightly leaning back. The eyes must remain closed during tinting. The client should relax, direct the gaze downward or straight ahead, and not move the eyes. If it is difficult for your client to keep the eyes still during the application time of the lash tint place a dampened cotton pad on each of the closed eyes; this makes it easier to keep eyes closed.
Is eyelash and eyebrow tinting also suitable for men?
Colouring of hair, brows and lashes was for a long time the sole domain of woman. But with the consistently rising number of men, who attach particular importance to personal care, men have discovered the incomparable advantages of eyelash and eyebrow tints: to look simply better with longer and more voluminous lashes and brows. Lasting up to 6 weeks! With an eyelash and eyebrow tint men can finally give themselves a little “help", in order to emphasize their eyes. Additionally important for men: compared to mascara, tinted eyelashes and eyebrows always look natural! Open your male customer’s eyes!
Is it correct that the use of Eye Make-Up Remover is essential although the client does not wear make-up?
Yes, before each eyelash and eyebrow tinting the hair should be treated with the non-oily Refectocil Eye Make-Up Remover. That is particularly important, because the hairs of the client must be oil free and clean of any make-up residue in preparation for tinting. Only then the best possible and long-lasting tinting result can be achieved.
Coloured hair should be regularly treated with a conditioner. How is this with eyelashes and eyebrows?
Not only coloured hair needs special care, but also tinted lashes and brows. Inform your clients of the importance for regular care after brow and lash tinting, and recommend to them the specifically developed care gel Refectocil LongLash Gel. Made of valuable plant oils and enriched with Vitamin E and D-Panthenol Refectocil LongLash Gel helps the lashes and brows to remain healthy, long, strong, shiny and beautiful. As a result clients will be more satisfied with the quality of the tint, because the tint lasts longer on healthy hair. Therefore you should recommend the daily use of Refectocil LongLashGel to your clients!

This way, also lighter shades are made possible. Please note that the application time for the following tinting process is reduced to a third.
