What are Hybrid Brows?

Hybrid brows refer to a cosmetic procedure using a specialised dye to temporarily enhance and define the appearance of eyebrows. It's stronger than your traditional eyebrow tint, but differs to eyebrow henna. It involves applying a specially formulated dye to the eyebrow hairs to darken, define, or alter their natural colour. 

The purpose of brow dye is to give the eyebrows a more polished and well-defined look. It's particularly useful for people with light or sparse eyebrows who want to create a bolder and more noticeable appearance. Brow dye can make the eyebrows appear fuller, more symmetrical, and better-shaped. It's a popular choice for those seeking to achieve a more defined overall facial look without the need for daily makeup application. The colour dyes both the hair and the skin and contributes to longer-lasting colour and adds depth. 

Benefits of hybrid brow dye include:

  1. Customisation: By mixing dyes, brow artists can create a more tailored colour and shape for each individual.

  2. Longevity: The hybrid brow dye tends to last longer than traditional tinting, offering an extended period of well-defined eyebrows.

  3. Enhanced Definition: The hybrid dye can provide a fuller and more defined appearance to the eyebrows.


The process of brow dyeing typically involves these steps:

  1. Preparation: The brow area is cleaned and any makeup or residue is removed to ensure proper dye absorption.

  2. Colour Selection: During the consultation the brow specialist will select a suitable dye colour that matches the desired shade for the eyebrows. This choice is often based on the person's hair colour, skin tone, and personal preferences.

  3. Brow Mapping: The brow specialist will then perform brow mapping which is a technique that is used to help find the ideal brow shape on your face by taking multiple measurements and utilising facial proportions. 

  4. Application: The dye is applied carefully to the eyebrow hairs using a brush or applicator. 

  5. Processing Time: The dye is left on the eyebrows for a specific amount of time to allow the colour to develop. The longer the dye is left on, the more intense the colour will be.

  6. Removal and Aftercare: Once the processing time is up, the dye is gently removed, and the eyebrows are cleaned. Aftercare instructions include avoiding water contact or excessive sweating for a short period after the treatment.

  7. Results: The brows will appear darker and more defined immediately after the treatment. The colour will gradually fade over the course of a few weeks due to natural shedding of the eyebrow hairs and skin exfoliation.

It's important to note that brow dye is temporary and will eventually fade. The longevity of the colour depends on factors such as the individual's skin type, skincare routine, and how often the brows come into contact with water and cleansing products. However you can expect your hybrid brow colour to last up to 7 days on the skin and up to 7 weeks on the brow hair. 

The meticulous design process, precise application, and personalised approach make hybrid brows a popular choice for those looking to enhance their facial features and achieve perfectly sculpted eyebrows.
