Basics of Coverups & Color Corrections Copy

If a client comes to you for a correction appointment, that means that she was unhappy with the results of her brow, her previous experience or both.

The following are reasons that your client may have been unhappy with her previous experience/results:

  • The eyebrows are uneven
  • The eyebrows have residual color
  • The results did not match the client’s expectations
  • The client had unrealistic expectations
  • The client had a bad experience with her previous artist

If your client had a bad experience with her previous artist, this could be a potential red flag for you. You may not want to accept her as a client (more on this later in the Chapter).

Regardless of the reason, in order to correct eyebrows with previous work, the new set of Ombré Powder will always be bigger, thicker, and at least two shades darker. In order to successfully correct eyebrows, they need to be faded and light enough. This is because the new eyebrow color has to be at least 2 shades darker in order to effectively cover up the old work and blend out the previous shape and color. If the previous work is too dark, the new pigment will have to be very dark to cover up the old work and most likely, this will be too dark for your client’s face.

If your client wants a correction, more than likely, they dislike their current shape and there’s a chance that it is uneven. In every cover up and color correction appointment, you have to reshape your client.
