I'm embarking on something new,  fun and very much needed based on my twelve years as a colorist/stylist. I've begun writing about small things that we can do that make a very big difference.  Lately I have been thinking about our Eyebrows and why so many colorists ignore them.

What you say? Eyebrows. They happen to be the crowning glory (literally) to the most important feature on our faces- our eyes. These eyebrows are often plucked, tweezed and shaped throughout our lives, ( and sometimes, not) and are deserving of more than a quick once over when it comes to color. 

There are more than just a few reasons to color those brows. Not just because they are grey, (very good reason to color them!) or non-existent, (such as  uber-blonde brows that don't help our eyes stand out in a more complimentary way) but because as colorists, we owe it to you, our guest to advise and recommend the many options available The simplest of which is a 10 minute darkening process that costs less that $15.00. This goes a very long way in creating a subtle change that has a tremendous impact.

Perhaps its more about the shape than the color.  Here is an article about matching eyebrow shapes to your particular face
