Recently, I found myself in a bit of a hair rut after having locks that could be best described as ‘boring brown’ for years. I desperately needed a change-up, so I had it coloured a burgundy shade. Not long after I had it done, I went to my brow place for my usual shape and tint. “Medium brown for the tint, please!” I said to the brow technician out of habit. She took one look at my hair and said “Yeaaaah no, that’s going to look really weird.” I was told there was no tint that would go with my new hair colour.
‘No worries,’ I thought. ‘I’ll just go to Sephora and find a brow pencil that’ll match my hair.’ Turns out, that’s not a thing. In fact, eyebrow products for red heads aren’t really a thing, full stop! I was shocked to discover that for all this time, our flame-haired sisters have been at a serious disadvantage when it comes to getting their brows on fleek. Upon doing some further research, I discovered that brow products for ginger gals do exist — they’re just very few and far in between.
So, in the interest of saving you time, we decided to put together this guide for you. Whether you’re a burgundy babe or a copper queen, we’ve got you sorted with the best brow products for your hair colour. Oh, and keep in mind you’re never meant to match your brows exactly with your hair, but a shade or two lighter should do the trick.
