So, one of the things you all might not know is that my last boyfriend back in the days when dinosaurs roamed the earth was a hairstylist. A very good one in fact and an excellent colorist. He had my hair go, in the years we were together, from deepest blue-black to platinum blond with stops in between. With my pale skin and light eyes the black was the most dramatic (although I enjoyed the medium ash blond the most.) when we parted I kept up with the process until it just became too much of a pain- my hair grows very quickly and I would have visible roots by the end of the week. At the time my hair was also about shoulder-length and I decided to cut it all off and just be salt and pepper, naturally.
While the black was nice, there was one problem with it. My eyelashes. He could color my brows but for some reason I backed at having regular hair dye on my lashes. My lashes are long, but the color only goes about 1/3 of the way and the tips are white. So I had a rather bunny effect going on here.
Fast forward a few decades and I was starting to get more and more grey in my brows. I previously had plucked the offending ones out, but that path, if continued, would turn me into Clara Bow. Not a good look on a middle-aged man. So I decided to go ahead and get an eyelash. brow dye kit off of Amazon after watching some YouTube videos on how to do the procedure. I won’t bore you with the mechanics of it (since I did not exactly follow the manufactures directions) but I will tell you that I was very pleased with the results. My brows are not completely black since I didn’t leave on the dye for that long, but the greys are covered. My formerly bunny-like lashes are black from root to tip and supposedly will stay that way for about a month. I’m sorry I didn’t take any before pictures, which makes after pix superfluous. But trust me, it makes a world of difference. I don’t look like I am wearing mascara (at least I hope I don’t..), it just looks better. Plus I think the supplies were about $20 and should last me at least 6 months.
Do any of you dye your lashes or brows? What were your experiences with it, or would you consider doing it? Discuss in the comments..
