Can you get your brow colour wrong? YES, Yes and yes!
Too dark, too light, it is easy to get it wrong. Thankfully with tints, they fade reasonably quickly, so if you do make a mistake it can be quickly rectified.
If you’d like a bit of a helping hand with it though, here's a rough guide to the tone and shade of colour you can get away with, in accordance with your hair colour.
Generally speaking, you can swing either way : ) Personally, I always feel a platinum blonde can afford to go quite dark. Natural-dark brown tint or a dark ash tone. The contrast looks beautiful and striking if done properly.
Light to medium blondes - stick to your golden/light brown tints (if you have more of an ashy tone to your blonde, add some ash or grey/graphite into the tint mix). It gives a subtle contrast between your hair colour and your brows, whilst still complimenting your eye and skin colour. Without being OTT.
Dark blondes - go for a natural brown, with a small mix of black tint in so that it keeps its richness.
Light browns - stick to a neutral, natural shade of Brown for your tint. This will still darken and enrichen the colour of your brows, but won’t feel overboard.
Mid Golden Browns - Natural - Dark Brown Tint. The natural mid tint colours tend to have warmth in them (rather than cool tone) so you’ll keep a warm, soft shade to your brows. A red tint could also be mixed into this combo.
Dark Brown - Dark Brown with black mix - This will give just enough colour definition without looking like the shape is over taking your face!
Dependant on whether you’re naturally strawberry blonde, naturally red, or auburn you can mix around your tint shades.
Strawberry blonde - Keep in with your golden light blonde tints with a small mix of ash. This will give them depth and a little bit of punch, whilst staying quite soft.
Naturally red - You can definitely afford to go with a natural brown tint with this hair colour. This will tone down the warmth (if they are over warm or if you want to take it down a notch or two) and keep them looking soft and make the whites of your eyes pop. You could also add in a red tint.
Auburn - A mid-dark brown would be perfection for this hair colour in contrast.
I would always (personally) advise to have your brows tinted by a brow professional. They will have better mixes of tint, and will be used to seeing a variety of colourings in people.
Tinting ALL of the hair around your brow is also a big YES. It gives the impression of thicker brows and allows you to shape them (whether at home or with a specialist) into a fuller brow.
Also, please ALWAYS do a tint patch test first, before you dye your eyebrows to avoid allergic reactions.
