THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN HYBRID BROWS AND REGULAR TINT: WHY MORE AND MORE OF YOU ARE TUNING INTO THE HYBRID TREND.


THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN HYBRID BROWS AND REGULAR TINT: WHY MORE AND MORE OF YOU ARE TUNING INTO THE HYBRID TREND.






 

We all are familiar with the results of a regular wax and shape to shape the brows and frame the face, but with ‘hybrid brows’ on the rise, what makes them different and why are more and more people booking in for the treatment? The answer is quite simple really, they last for a prolonged period compared to a regular wax and tint, instead of just tinting the hairs, it also tints the skin. If you still have queries, don’t worry as I am aiming to cover all bases in this tell-all entry about hybrid brows!

 

SO, WHAT ARE HYBRID BROWS EXACTLY?

 

Hybrid brows, also known as HD brows, use a specific tint to stain both the skin and the brow hairs aiming to give a longer lasting and overall, more defined result when it comes to framing the face. This treatment can also help the brows when it comes to appearing fuller, paired with the staining of the skin it almost gives the appearance of a powdered brow.

 

HOW LONG DO HYBRID BROWS LAST?

 

Speaking generally, hybrid brows last for as long as 6 weeks when it comes to brow hairs, and between two or three weeks when it comes to staining the skin. This can be dependent on factors, such as: the client’s skin type, which skincare and makeup products they use, the type of HD brow stain used as well as the natural state of the client’s brow hairs.

 

HOW MUCH, ON AVERAGE, DO HYBRID BROWS COST?

 

Hybrid brows range from between £25 and £35 in the UK depending on the experience of the artist, the salon you are visiting, and the products being used. They are predominantly more expensive than the average tint and wax because of how lost and the difference in the costs of materials used.

 

WHICH CLIENTS ARE IDEAL FOR THE HYBRID BROW TREATMENT?

 

Hybrid brows are suitable for everyone, but clients and artists should be aware that on an oily skin type, the skin stain element of the treatment will not last quite as long compared to those obtaining a dryer or normal skin type.

It is an ideal treatment for clients who wish to fill gaps in their brows and look for a more defined and bolder look, that is less achievable with the traditional wax and tint as mentioned earlier.

 

HOW DO I PREPARE FOR A HYBRID BROW TREATMENT?

 

-          If you are a newbie to hybrid brows your artist may require a patch test 48 hours before the treatment is carried out.

-          Avoid any exfoliation treatments in the days leading up to your appointment if you are undergoing any hair removal during your treatment, including retinol, acids and scrubs (this is also relevant I the days following your treatment)

 

AFTERCARE GUIDE?

 

-          Avoid saunas, steam rooms, sunbeds, and exercise for at least 48 hours following the treatment.

-          Avoid fake tan and anti-ageing or exfoliating skincare for 48 hours post treatment.

-          Oil-based cleansers could break down the tint solution faster if applied directly to the eyebrows.

-          Try not to rub the area for at least 24 hours following the treatment.
