Lash & Tint Services

Enhance your natural brows and lashes with the help of our expert Beauty Therapists

With a hint of tint, your brows and lashes will look fuller and longer, making your eyes pop! Want your lashes to go the extra mile? Try out our lash lift! A lash lift is a perm for your eyelashes, that will keep them curled and staying upwards so they appear longer.

What is brow and lash tinting?

Brow and lash tinting is the process of semi-permanent dye being smoothed over your eyebrows or eyelashes to enhance the shape, definition and colour of your existing hair.

Eyebrow Tinting

Eyebrow tinting can help fill in gaps in the eyebrow or parts where hairs may be lighter or sparser. It is common to have light, sparse hairs on the top arch which can interfere with achieving your best brow shape. Men and women also use tinting to cover grey hairs, much like dying your hair, which results in a more youthful appearance.

Your Beauty Therapist will select a shade of tint that will suit your hair colour and skin tone. Tinting makes your eyebrows appear fuller, thicker and will help improve your shape and arch by tinting lighter hairs.

Eyelash Tinting

Eyelash tinting results in lashes looking fuller and darker. Our most popular colour for a dramatic effect is blue black. This colour makes it look like you’re wearing mascara (how awesome!). Want the appearance of extra length and curl? Add on a lash lift too!

If you have naturally light or blonde lashes, you’ll definitely see a dramatic difference with our eyelash tint. Even if you have dark eyelashes, they will appear thicker and longer than usual (as lashes are generally lighter in colour towards the tips).

How to make your tint last longer

Eyebrow tinting lasts 2-3 weeks (depending on the colour used) and lash tinting can last up to 4 weeks. Darker colour tints generally last for longer periods of time.

Skincare products containing AHAs and BHAs can cause your tint to fade more quickly. Oil cleansers and oil-based makeup removers can also cause tints to fade faster, so it is best to opt for cream-based cleansers. We recommend the Dalton Comfort Clean Milk as a gentle and nourishing option. It not only looks after the delicate dry skin around the eyes, it also conditions the lashes.

The quality of your colour can be affected by sun exposure, saltwater and chlorine, so it is best to avoid these if you want to keep your brow or lash tint for as long as possible. Applying a non-greasy, SPF 50+ sunscreen like Dalton Sun Care UVA/UBA Protection Cream can help shield your brow tint from the harsh rays that cause tints to fade.

What is a lash lift?

A lash lift is a procedure that curls and changes the shape of your natural eyelashes from the base to the tip so you can see the full length of your lashes making them appear longer.

During the treatment, your Beauty Therapist will lift and straighten your lashes over a rod on your eyelid to create the best shape for your eyelashes. Two solutions are then applied to your lashes. The first solution relaxes the lashes from the position they were previously in, and the second solution sets the lashes in the new, lifted position.

If you are also getting a lash tint, the tint will be applied when the lash lift solutions are rinsed off. A lash lift and tint will take no more than 45 minutes to complete. You will be able to get a lash lift every 8- 10 weeks.

Lash lift preparation and aftercare

On the day:
  • It is best to arrive to your lash lift appointment with no eye makeup.
  • Do not curl your eyelashes with a curler on the day.
  • Do not wear contact lenses to your appointment.
24 – 48 hours after:
  • After your lash lift avoid eye makeup, including mascara for 24-48 hours.
  • Avoid getting your eyelashes wet for 24-48 hours.
  • Avoid touching your eyelashes or rubbing your eyes for 24-48 hours.
Caring for your lashes:
  • Avoid waterproof mascara and makeup removers or cleansers that contain silicone, parabens, fruit acids or lactic acids, as these can interfere with your new lash shape and can cause broken and brittle lashes.
  • Use the Dalton Instant Effect Eye Gel to help ensure lashes and the skin around the eyes stay smooth, nourished and healthy. Dalton’s Instant Effect Eye Gel also contains plankton and castor oil that has been known to stimulate hair growth.
  • To help maintain your lash lift results, use Elleplex. Elleplex is an advanced gel formula used to promote lash health, providing moisture and shine to the lashes. The ingredients in this product include proteins, amino acids, keratin, biotin and collagen.

Frequently Asked Questions

Read More FAQs
How long does lash and brow tinting last?

Eyebrow tinting lasts 2-3 weeks depending on the colour used. Darker colour tints generally last longer. Your tint will fade away naturally until you get your next tint. Lash tinting can last up to 4 weeks.

How long will a lash lift last?

Lash lifts are permanent for the full natural lash shedding cycle, which is typically 6-8 weeks. Your lashes will look their most dramatic during the first 4 weeks, but it is important to wait until your full lash cycle is over before having another lift. To keep your eyelashes looking amazing, we recommend getting another lash tint half way through the life of your lash lift.

Should I tint my eyebrows if my hairs are already dark?

Tinting can also help improve the shape and arch of the eyebrows. The top of the arch can be lifted by tinting the lighter hairs at the top of the brows. The tail of your brows can also be better defined and lengthened, giving an overall better shape. Once the eyebrows are tinted, the very fine lighter hairs show up. This gives the whole eyebrow a fuller look.

Why is my lash lift not as dramatic as I thought it would be?

Our Beauty Therapists aim to deliver the best result possible at your first lash lift appointment. However, as we do not know how your lashes will respond to the lifting solutions, every first-time lash lift client has a maximum amount of time that the solution can be left on the lashes. This is to ensure your lashes stay strong and healthy.

At your next visit we can establish a more tailored curl and lift to get the best results possible. The feedback you give regarding the lift and curl e.g. more of a lift, more curl or less curl helps us tailor your treatment to better suit your style preference.
