Combination brows is a term given to the application of permanent makeup using a variety of techniques to achieve a tailored end result. Typically, combination brows combines hairstroke brow and ombré brow techniques to create eyebrows that appear as if they have makeup applied, while still retaining the appearance of individual hair strokes.
From an aesthetic standpoint, eyebrows complete the face and frame the eyes and this is why women and men look toward the field of permanent makeup (also known as cosmetic tattooing and micro pigmentation), to address concerns about the appearance of their eyebrows.
Cosmetic tattooing of eyebrows is a nearly painless procedure and takes approximately 2-3 hours. Eyebrows are first shaped to best suit a client’s facial features and contours, anesthetic is applied, and then the artist uses whatever technique has been agreed upon to implant the pigment into the skin. It is not uncommon for clients to fall asleep.
