Step four: Optional Tinting. Brows can be tinted to add colour to the brows and to enhance the results of the treatment.
Step five: All traces of the products above are removed from the brows, then Brow Nourish (a specially developed brow serum with keratin) is applied to the brows to hydrate and condition the hair.
Step six: The brows are brushed into their desired position - this position is adjustable depending on the look you would like to achieve. Brows can be brushed up or brushed into a more natural shape.
