Eyebrow Styles: The Best Type For You

Posted on: March 31st, 2022

Hey!! Some people think that there is only one eyebrow type/style. Believe it or not, there are actually four. All four brow types will leave you with beautiful brows that are completely customized to you. How do you know what brow style is for you? Well, I always have a thorough consultation at the beginning of every client’s brow appointment. In the consultation, we go over color, style, and shape. Now, let’s dive into the four brow types.

Microblading

The first and most common eyebrow type is Microblading. Microblading is the most natural-looking brow. This brow type is best for those who rarely or never wear makeup. Microblading is done with a handheld tool that has roughly 8-10 extra fine needles at the end of the tool that almost acts as a blade. The artist dips the tool into the ink of your desired color, and then manually scrapes the skin, leaving what looks almost identical to hair strokes on your brows. This procedure, like all of them, requires a 6-8 week touch up appointment. Microblading most commonly lasts 1-3 years. I recommend you come at least once a year for a touch-up appointment to keep your brows fresh and at your desired brow color.

Combo Brows

The second brow type is Combo Brows. Combo brows are also very natural-looking brows. Most individuals who would be a great candidate for Combo brows would be those who are searching for that natural look but want a little more depth and density to their brows. The first part of Combo Brows is identical to microblading. It is done with a handheld tool that has roughly 8-10 extra fine needles at the end of the tool that almost acts as a blade. The artist dips the tool into the ink of your desired color, and then manually scrapes the skin, leaving what looks almost identical to hair strokes on your brows. Following this process, the artist takes an electronic tattoo machine and adds what is called shading. The shading is what adds density to the brow. Combo brows do tend to on average last a bit longer than microblading because of the way the needles from the tattoo machine penetrate the skin versus the needles on the handheld microblading tool. This procedure requires a 6-8 week touch up appointment. Combo Brows most commonly last 1-3.5 years. I recommend you come at least once a year for a touch-up appointment to keep your brows fresh and at your desired brow color.

Powder Brows

The third brow type is Powder Brows. Powder brows look very much like you filled your brows in with a very soft brow pencil. Powder brows look great on a face with no makeup, and a face with full glam makeup on. It’s a very soft, full look. Powder Brows is done with an electronic tattoo machine, same as the second part of the Combo Brows. The artist provides shading throughout the entire brow. This procedure requires a 6-8 week touch up appointment. Powder Brows most commonly last 2-4 years. I recommend you come at least once a year for a touch-up appointment to keep your brows fresh and at your desired brow color.

Ombre Brows

The fourth, and final brow type is Ombre Brows. Ombre brows look as if you did your brows for a glam makeup look. This brow look is most recommended for those who wear makeup almost every day. This look is not a very “natural” look, though it is still very very beautiful. This look is not for those who don’t want anyone to know they got their brows done. Ombre brows are done with an electronic tattoo machine. The artist provides shading throughout the entire brow creating a darker tail that transitions into a softer and lighter beginning to the brow creating the “Ombre.” This procedure requires a 6-8 week touch up appointment. Ombre Brows most commonly last 3-5 years. I recommend you come at least once a year for a touch-up appointment to keep your brows fresh and at your desired brow color.
