HD BROWS FAQ's

Prices start at £25 and vary depending on the salon you visit and the skill level of your stylist. Contact your local HD Brows stylist directly to discover what price they charge. You can find your local HD Brows stylist here.
I HAVE SPARSE OR OVERPLUCKED BROWS; CAN I STILL GET HD BROWS?

WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN HD BROWS & MICROBLADING?
HD Brows uses various hair removal techniques to create your desired brow shape. Microblading is a semi-permanent technique that sits under the tattooing family, lasting around 1-3 years and starts at approx £500. Discover more about the difference here.
IS HD BROWS SEMI-PERMANENT?
The treatment is not classed as semi-permanent, however we do use permanent tint on the brows during the treatment. The lasting effects of this vary depending on skin type, hair growth and skin care routine. Results of the HD Brows treatment typically last around 4-6 weeks.
HOW OLD DO I NEED TO BE TO GET HD BROWS?
Due to EU law, you can’t have your brows tinted under the age of 16. Don’t worry, you can still have the treatment done from the age of 13 (with parental consent, of course) however we would just need to skip the tinting stage.
DO I NEED TO DO A PATCH TEST?
Yes. You should be given a patch test to apply at least 48 hours before each and every treatment to minimise any risk of reactions. Many extraneous factors can affect your sensitivity to tint and this is likely to change between each appointment.
HOW MANY HD BROWS TREATMENTS DO I NEED TO ACHIEVE MY DESIRED SHAPE?
This completely depends on the amount of hair you have to begin with. Your HD Brows stylist will be able to advise how many treatments they recommend to give you the brows you eventually want during your first consultation.
CAN I GET HD BROWS AT HOME?
HD Brows is not a treatment that can be performed at home. HD Brows stylists are trained to the highest level, therefore the treatment can’t be done by anyone who hasn’t been trained at an official academy. However, you can keep your brows looking fresh between treatments at home by using the HD Brows make up range.
WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A HD BROWS STYLIST AND A PRO OR MASTER STYLIST?
HD Brows stylists have undergone our intensive training to ensure they’re in line with our high quality brow standards. Pros and masters undertake further training to work on advanced hair removal techniques and treatments, such as brow lightening, brow extensions and express.
HOW OLD DO YOU HAVE TO BE TO USE A SUNBED?
You must be over 18 years old to use a sunbed, it is against the law for persons under the age of 18 to use sunbeds. Please be aware that we may ask to see proof of age before your first session with us.
HOW LONG CAN I GO ON A SUNBED FOR?
The maximum amount of time you can go on a sunbed is 15 minutes, you must leave 24 hours between tanning session but we recommend you leave 48 hours between tanning sessions.
SPRAY TANNING FAQ's

For best results exfoliate and do any waxing or shaving the day before your spray tan. We will provide you with paper pants for the tan and we would recommend you bring loose fitting, dark clothing to go home in.
HOW LONG WILL MY SPRAY TAN LAST?
The tan will last for about 5-7 days if looked after correctly ie moisturise, pat skin dry after bath/shower.
WHEN SHOULD I HAVE MY SPRAY TAN?
We would advise to have the tan 1-2 days before the special occasion.
HOW LONG DO I HAVE TO WAIT TO SHOWER AFTER A SPRAY TAN?
How long should I wait after a session before showering? To give the DHA enough time to fully set, it is recommended to wait a minimum of 4 hours after a sunlessspray tanning session or 8 hours for optimal results. Showering sooner may diminish the intensity of the tan
