Friend of the RedINC studio and loyal customer of our sister company RedLITE Laser & Anti-Ageing Clinic Lacey Banghard went into the Celebrity Big Brother House this week! We’ve loved watching her in there and think she looks amazing as always. Before Lacey went into the house she came to us to have her eyebrows tattooed so that she doesn’t have to worry about her makeup while she is in there and can concentrate her time on having fun. The procedure was carried out by our very own Charlene Aziza who is our resident semi permanent makeup Queen- as well as semi permanent makeup, Charlene also carries out LVL lashes and HD Brows!
We wanted to discuss a few points regarding cosmetic tattooing and how it differs from traditional tattooing.
How long we has eyebrow tattooing been around?
Eyebrow tattooing has actually been around since the 1920s in some form. As techniques changed and progressed with time, it started becoming more ‘mainstream’ in the early 90s. We’ve been offering it to customers since 2007.
Why it was first introduced?
It was first introduced due to the desire for ‘pencil thin’ eyebrows at the start of the silent film era in the 1920s, increasing in popularity due to loss of hair from overplucking, alopecia, and recently the desire for the ‘scouse brow’! It is the perfect solution for people who like defined brows but do not have the time to pencil them on every day or get them threaded/waxed regularly.
Is it like a normal tattoo?
Unlike a normal tattoo, eyebrow tattooing is performed using tiny needles to create hair strokes into the upper layer of the skin, using pigment rather than ink to give a natural finish. The pigments are great to use because they can be custom blended to create the perfect colour to suit skin tones and existing hair colour.
Does it work and how long does it last?
It most certainly does work, as you can tell by how gorgeous Lacey looks with her new brows. On average they will last approximately two years but many customers report that they last longer.
We would like to wish Lacey good luck in the Big Brother House, we think she’s doing amazingly already and here’s hoping she can win it! Whatever happens, we know she’s got the best brows in the house! Team #bangers
