Combination Brow

Combination Brow – This is Lucy’s favourite and most popular brow look! Combination brow is a mixture of Microblading and Shading. Hair strokes are added to the brow through Microblading with subtle shading applied to the background of the eyebrow using a machine. This method gives the eyebrows a bit more depth and realism whilst keeping them super  natural. The shading can be super light or built up more to give the brows more definition, the great thing about this style is that you can be in control of how much shading you want so they can be as natural or as heavy as you want! This style is perfect if you are used to adding a small amount of makeup to your eyebrows. Your appointment is split into 2 parts. You have your initial treatment, you will then return 6 weeks later where we will tweak the brows, add any lost hair strokes and really perfect your Combination Brow.

All Combination Brow appointments start with a 20 minute consultation. During this appointment we can discuss what look you want and what option is best for you, we will also choose your colour and apply your patch test. During this appointment I will measure your eyebrows and draw them in to give you an idea of what they will look like when they are finished.

Lucy has trained intensely with some of the best in the industry to ensure that she is well equipped with the knowledge and skill to create you realistic eyebrows. She has also spent hours practicing and perfecting her skills both in the training room and in the salon. As apart of her training Lucy has had to pass a number of theory exams with the latest one being her Level 4 assessment. This makes her one of a small number to have this qualification. Alongside this she has had to create an extensive portfolio of work to enable her to pass  her assessments and become qualified.

As you would expect Lucy is fully qualified, insured and licensed by Rochdale Council. So you can be confident you are in good and clean hands!

Does Combination Brow hurt?

No,  Before the treatment begins the brow area is numbed and also re-numbed numerous times whilst the microblading is being done and also whilst the shading is being applied to the eyebrow.

What do you do with the brow hair that is already there? Do you shave it off?

Believe it or not this is the question I get asked most! The answer is no, to ensure your brows are as natural as possible I try to keep as much natural brow as I can and build your new shape around your brow hairs that are already there. I only remove hairs at the end of the treatment that don’t sit within the shape of your new brows.

I have no eyebrow hair at all, can I still have Combination Brow done?

Yes of course. If there is no brow hair at all Lucy will spend more time designing and measuring the brow in to  make sure it is as symmetrical as it can be. Lucy always recommends starting off more natural on the first appointment and then taking them thicker and darker on the top up appointment if you want to. This allows you to get used to your new eyebrows!

How long does Combination Brow last for?

With the correct after care they should last 12 months before needing a colour boost This can vary though depending on skin type. Please follow aftercare.

What is the aftercare for Combination Brows?

Keep brows dry for 7 days after treatment.

No makeup on the brows until fully healed.

Avoid swimming for 7 days after treatment

Avoid saunas until fully healed

Brows will go slightly dry and shed during healing. This is normal. Do not pick the dryness off as it will remove pigment.

Once fully healed you must protect brows from the sun. Always wear at least an SPF 15 on your eyebrows on sunny days and on holiday ensure a SPF 30. The sun is the main reason for premature fading.

Ensure you return for your yearly brow colour boost to ensure they stay fresh and the colour correct.

The service Lucy provided put me at my ease, I felt very comfortable from initial assessment to the actual microblading appointment, the aftercare appointment was excellent too. My eyebrows have given me my confidence back, thank you Lucy I would encourage anyone thinking of having microblading to go to Lucy, you’ll not be disappointed excellent service and care 🤗

Lovely place to visit. Lucy is brilliant to deal with, listens to your requirements but also gives advice, which is very useful as sometimes as you wouldn’t think of some of the ideas and they could be better. She knows what she’s talking about and doing so makes it easy to trust her judgement and not worry about the results. Would definitely recommend.

First time booking in with Lucy… I can honestly say Lucy is the most friendly welcoming person I’ve met! I was a bit apprehensive about booking in else where for my waxing but Lucy made me feel at ease! And made my experience pain free! 100% recommend booking in.. wish I’d booked in sooner ❤️
