Should I Dye My Eyebrows to Match My Hair Color

Hi YouTips4U: I just had my hair lifted to bleach blond and I love it! My natural color is dark brown. My question to you is, should I also lighten my eyebrows to bleach blond to match?

YouTips4U Answer: I'm so glad you wrote, many people wonder the same thing. My recommendation is that you do not match your eyebrows to your hair color. Eyebrows should be a little darker than your head hair color and by no means should they be bleach blond. If you are dying your hair one to two shades lighter, no need to even touch your eyebrows, because your current natural color will probably be fine. But if you are making a big change from your natural color, for example, if your natural color was very dark hair and your eyebrows are very dark, then you can soften your eyebrows by tinting them with home hair color a lighter shade of brown for blonder hair shades. If you are dying your hair red, or a golden shade would be good for your eyebrows. You only need to leave the color on your eyebrows for about five minutes; much shorter than you would leave it on your head if you were coloring your hair. You can also ask your colorist to tint your eyebrows when you get your color done. Usually they will do this for free.

Thanks for writing and I'll see you on YouTube,
