Combo eyebrows, also known as combination eyebrows or hybrid eyebrows, are a type of semi-permanent eyebrow tattooing technique that combines both microblading and shading. This technique creates a more defined and filled-in look for the eyebrows.

The process of getting combo eyebrows typically involves the following steps:

  1. Consultation: Before the procedure, you will have a consultation with a trained professional. During this consultation, you can discuss your desired eyebrow shape, color, and overall look. The professional will also assess your natural eyebrows and recommend the best approach for your specific needs.
  2. Numbing: Before the procedure begins, a topical numbing cream is applied to the eyebrow area to minimize any discomfort.
  3. Microblading: The first step in the combo eyebrow procedure is microblading. Microblading involves using a handheld tool with tiny needles to create small, hair-like strokes in the skin. These strokes mimic the appearance of natural eyebrow hairs and help to define the shape of the eyebrows.
  4. Shading: After the microblading is done, the shading technique is used to add more depth and density to the eyebrows. Shading involves using a tattoo machine or manual shading tool to create a soft, powdered effect. This technique fills in any gaps between the microbladed strokes and adds a more defined and polished look to the eyebrows.
  5. Aftercare: Once the combo eyebrow procedure is complete, the professional will provide you with aftercare instructions. This typically includes avoiding excessive moisture, sun exposure, and picking at the treated area. It is important to follow these instructions to ensure proper healing and long-lasting results.

Combo eyebrows can last anywhere from 1 to 3 years, depending on factors such as skin type, lifestyle, and aftercare. Touch-up sessions may be required to maintain the desired look over time.

It is important to choose a reputable and experienced professional to perform the combo eyebrow procedure to ensure safety and optimal results.
