Lash & Brow Tinting - #1 Spa/Salon Service Add On!

Lash and Brow Tinting is an enormously popular service for spas and salons. It is an easy add-on performed licensed estheticians and cosmetologists that clients love. When clients book facials, many successful spas and salons suggest they also schedule an appointment for lash and brow tinting. This is a highly profitable add-on that helps secure repeat business. Tinting is quick, effective, and offers dramatic, long-lasting results for clients.

There are many brands of professional Tinting products. One of our most popular brands has been Intensive Lash & Brow Tint. Recently, there has been some questions about the changes to this brand and product - let us clarify. Known for years by its distinctive orange/gold box & tubes, this original Intensive had been produced by a German company called Biosmetics for 20 years and was distributed in the U.S. until late 2015. In 2016, the US distributor/importer of Intensive discontinued using Biosmetics in Germany to make their trademarked brand Intensive. Intensive is now being manufactured by a US based laboratory and has an updated the formula. The US manufacturer says the key benefits of this newly formulated product is a thicker consistency and US quality.

Of course, we offer many tinting brands. To meet our client's varied needs, we offer: Intensive, Refectocil, Berrywell, Combinal, Godefroy, Roux and more.

If tinting services are new to you, regulations vary from state to state so please check with your state board before performing this service. We only sell tinting products to licensed estheticians and cosmetologists... if tinting is outside the scope of your licensure, we will not sell it to you!
