Help-just had eyebrows dyed!

As the subject line suggests.....

Went to the beauty salon for my usual eyelash tint. I have fair hair and fair skin so it's a neccessity! They offered me a complementary eyebrow tint and I thought why the hell not?!

Got home and they are soooo dark. I have already used cleanser and facewash on them to try and tone them down a bit but no luck.

Any tips?

They'll die down in a week or so.

Maybe facial bleach (jolene?) just wash it off when they look the right colour?
Other than that not sure

Mine usually fade after a couple of days. You are probably just not used to them being dark, I bet they look great.

I used facial bleach when I did the same thing.

I'm really sorry but I dont think there is anything that will take it off/make it lighter. Only time.... (I'm an ex-beauty therapist)

They will fade quickly, and probably aren't as bad as you think. I always get a shock when I see mine, but actually they look perfectly normal.

I'm hoping that it's just that I'm not really used to them, think it may just be a shock that they are a bit darker.

Jolene sounds like a good idea but think I am too scared to try that. Thanks for your help though ladies!

They really will fade incredibly fast with normal washing, cleansing, etc. I wouldn't resort to anything as drastic as bleaching - just give them a day or two.

Head and shoulders shampoo will strip out dye.

Leave them! As others have said, they'll fade, they probably look great, and you're just not used to them!

It might help if you intensify your eye make-up a bit till they fade: wear a bit more eyeliner and mascara, a slightly deeper eyeshadow (but don't go overboard or you'll enter goth territory).

as above, leave it a day or two and you wont even notice them! my DP always sniggers when he comes home and I've tinted mine and makes lame spock jokes, but a day later they look fine
