Combo Brows in Nairobi

The Answer Lies in The Middle

What are Combo Brows?

Our brow expert at Thrive Aesthetics create the best combo brows in Nairobi. Combo brows are a form of permanent makeup (cosmetic tattoo) where both the microblading and microshading technique are combined. This technique is great for those who have sparse eyebrows, little to no hair, or those who simply want to add definition to their eyebrows and arch. Combo Brows allow us to create an illusion of eyebrows hairs and soft powder that resembles a natural makeup look. Those with previous eyebrow tattoo or microblading must email a photo for approval prior to scheduling a service.


How Long Do Combo Brows Last?

Since pigments are not implanted deeply into the skin as traditional tattoos, the area fades over time. The results of combo brows in Nairobi last between 3 years and thus why regular touch-ups are advised by the esthetician.


What Are The Benefits of Combo Brows?

Combo Brows work well for all skin types (even oily skin). The combination of both techniques results in full-bodied brows for those who have patchy or sparse brows. For someone with very sparse brows, this shading can give the brow more body, while the hair strokes maintain a natural look.


How Do You Prepare For Your Treatment?

If you have an ideal shape or color in mind, bring those reference photos with you to your appointment. You may also fill in your eyebrows as you normally would to share your desired outcome. If you regularly get your eyebrows waxed or threaded, please do so 72 hours before your service.

We ask clients to avoid any blood thinning medications for a minimum of 72 hours prior to appointment. This includes Vitamin E, Aspirin, Niacin, fish oil supplements, Advil, Ibuprofen. Tylenol is okay.
  • No working out the day of your appointment.
  • No Alcohol drinks 24-48 hours prior to your service.
  • No caffeine 24 hours prior to your service.
  • No Botox, fillers, chemical peel facials within 4 weeks


What To Expect After Your Appointment

Immediately following the appointment, the pigmented area will appear to be dark, slightly bold in color and more sharply defined. Do not apply any cosmetics in this area for 7-10 days. If your skin starts to feel tight/dry around day 3-4, you may use a small amount of aftercare ointment provided to you. Oily skin clients are asked to blot the eyebrow area every 2-3 hours with blotting paper until fully healed. Please be sure to follow all aftercare instructions provided to you.

During the healing period, there should be minimal flaking of the skin. If there is some flaking, please do not pick, pull or rub. Allow the flakes to come off on their own. This process can take up to 2 weeks. IMPORTANT: Once the flakes have fallen off, a shiny layer of healing skin will completely cover the hair strokes. It may appear as though the tattooed area has completely disappeared or lightened. Within 1-2 weeks, the hair strokes will slowly reappear at a lighter shade as your skin regenerates.

The complete healing process takes approximately 6 weeks, at which time the true color of the tattoo is evident. During this process, your tattoo will soften/lighten. Be patient, even if you think too much color has been lost. Keep in mind that the skin regenerates between 18-45 days, your skin will need time to fully heal. Be sure to follow up with your 6-8 week touch up.

The cost of combo brows in Nairobi is Kshs 40,000 or $400. However, the exact price may vary depending on factors such as the reputation of the esthetician and the location of the clinic.

How Do You Maintain Combo Brows in Nairobi?

It is highly advised that you avoid sun and tanning bed exposure for 30 days before and after your treatment. If you show up for your appointment with a recent tan or sunburn, you will be asked to reschedule resulting in loss of deposit. Excessive sun exposure before and/or after your treatment may cause the eyebrows to fade into a lighter ashy hue.


  • Do not apply any makeup on the tattooed area for 2 weeks. Cosmetics of any kind will interfere with the healing and color of your eyebrows.
  • Avoid heavy sweating, gym and working out for 7-10 days following your procedure.
  • No swimming pools, Jacuzzi or other bodies of water for 2 weeks.
  • Do not tint, bleach, dye, or preform a brow lamination for 4 weeks following your procedure.
  • Do not use oils, Vaseline, Neosporin, or other petroleum based products during the healing process.

  • You may continue your regular skincare routine after 30 days. This includes Botox, fillers, and facial treatments.
  • If you are having laser resurfacing or laser hair removal after your tattoo has healed, please inform the laser technician. Laser procedures may darken, lighten, or discolor the tattooed area (continue at your own discretion).
