Well beautiful dolls, it is all a matter of preference and style. As many of you may already know, microblading is a semi- permanent tattoo ( yes I dare say tattoo!) that is done with a tiny blade to create hair stroke like-lines in the brows. It fairly temporary as far as permanent makeup procedures go, which makes it very safe for most women who are terrified of anything they can't change. A Hybrid Brow, or fusion/combo brow is a combination of micropigmentation and microblading. Micropigmentation is a technique done with a digital machine which implants pigment a little deeper in the skin creating a very soft and powdery look after healing is complete.
Your probably still asking yourself, which one is for me? If your looking for a very, very natural and soft fill to your brow, I suggest getting microbladed. It very superficial and only goes through a few layers of skin if done properly. This requires yearly touch ups. If you have dry skin microblading will love you! If you have oily skin microblading will fade rapidly and the strokes will NOT stay intact. This is when I suggest getting a hybrid brow! Woohoo! The Hybrid brow allows you to have the softness of microblading strokes and the shading of the micropigmentation, for a structured and filled in look, that retains very well on oily skin, people that work out alot, or combination skin types. This technique also require touch up but not as frequent as microblading. Pricing for these service should range from the $500-$800 range. Please make sure to always research you techs and ask tons of questions! Don't be afraid to ask to see if they are licensed and where they received their training. In most states, microblading and permanent makeup tech must be registered as tattoo artist as well, and for the love of God! Stop buying brows on Groupon or deal sights! If they are willing to discount their work, there is always a reason.
All you need in life is great friends and fake brows! LOL
