Brows are a vital part of our everyday makeup routine. We spend a lot of time refining our brow shape but may sometimes give little attention to whether the brow product we are applying is the proper shade and tint. So should eyebrows be darker than hair? Let’s have a look and see.
The discussion over whether your brows should be darker than your hair color is one that many beauticians have had over the years, and there is really no right or wrong answer! It all comes down to a few personal preferences.
What Kind Of Look Are You Looking For With Your Eyebrow?
It seems like anything goes when it comes to hair color these days. It seems that brows are being utilized to show individuality and style on an increasing number of occasions, with severe differences between hair and eyebrows becoming increasingly prevalent.
However, this alternate style may be unpleasant and is typically a step too far for the majority of people. So, what is the best way to use your eyebrows to create a style that is unique to you?
Bold or subtle brows?
The question is whether you desire to draw attention to yourself with a dramatic statement brow. If this is the case, make your eyebrows a shade or two darker than your hair color. This will make your brows ‘pop’ since they will be the darkest part of your face, which will make them stand out more.
If you want a more subtle, natural effect, use a color that is the same as your hair or one shade lighter. This will soften the entire look, blending all of your features together rather than making one aspect stand out more than another.
Based on our previous experience, we suggest that you color your eyebrows one or two shades lighter or darker than your hair color! Black brows on someone with extremely light blonde hair (in the Kim K style) would definitely make a dramatic statement, as would bleached brows on someone with dark hair. Instead, we recommend sticking to a few shades lighter or darker, unless this is your vibe since it creates a far more real natural look!
Is The Color Of Your Brows Determined By Your Age?
In general, we find that younger people are more likely to follow the newest fashion trends and to draw inspiration from their favorite celebrities (and we are all aware of how rapidly their fashion sense can change). As a result, we find that younger people are more creative when it comes to color, often experimenting with more dramatic colors and contrasts between their hair and brows.
Older people tend to prefer a more natural appearance and, as a result, want a subtle-looking brow rather than anything overly bold or dramatic. For our older clients, we have found that sticking within 1-2 shades lighter or darker than their natural color is the most effective way to produce a chic, elegant, or graceful look.
