The new Mrs.Highbrow Hybrid Dy was already one of our best sellers immediately after its launch in June. A long-lasting eyebrow dye in gel texture that colors the hairs for 6-7 weeks and the skin for up to 7 days. But which color do you use for whom and how do you mix the colors?

Mrs.Highbrow Hybrid Dye In 6 Colors
Mrs.Highbrow Hybrid Dye comes in 6 beautiful shades, from light brown to almost black. The colors are ready to use, but you can also mix them together. In fact, Dove and Auburn in particular are true blending colors. To make a color cooler (Dove), or warmer (Auburn). The dark colors Espresso and Midnight can be used very well to make other shades slightly darker.
Mix the Hybrid Dye with the special Developer in a ratio of 1:1 (for 1 pair of eyebrows, use about the size of a pea).
Want the color more intense and an even better imprint on the skin? Then use the ratio 2:1, using twice as much dye as Developer.
#1 Oat: Subtle Brown Hue
The color Oat is the lightest shade of Hybrid Dye. Oat is a beautiful light brown, dark blonde shade. Perfect for light skin and very light brows. Note: Oat gives a somewhat lesser imprint on the skin. Therefore, this color is great for anyone who does not want their brows too dark. The color is also ideal to combine with Brow Lamination..
#2 Dove: Dark Ash Blonde
The color Dove looks great on blondes who love dark, ashy brows. Or anyone with brown hair who likes cool brows. Don't be fooled by the packaging. In reality, the color is not as gray as the color code suggests.
Mix-tip: use Oat to make the other colors more ashy.
#3 Auburn: Intense Red
Mrs.Highbrow Hybrid Dye in the color Auburn is a reddish-brown color, perfect for redheads and anyone who likes warm brown brows. As with Dove, the same goes for Auburn: the color coding on the tube and packaging suggests a more extreme color than it really is.
Mix-tip: use Auburn to make the other colors warmer.
#4 Choco: With a Touch of Warmth
Choco is a medium brown shade that is actually suitable for everyone. Blondes who like really dark brows, or toned types who don't want too dark. So this color Hybrid Dye is also ideal to use as a main color and then blend to make the color just slightly lighter, darker, cooler or warmer.
#5 Espresso: Intense Dark Brown
Hybrid Dye in the color Espresso is a dark brown shade, for women and men with dark to black hair and (light) toned skin.
Tip: It is important to look closely at the client's hair color and skin tone when choosing the right color.
#6 Midnight: Almost Black
Midnight is an almost black color especially for dark skin. It won't darken eyebrow hairs that are already black, of course, but it does create a distinct imprint on the skin.
Mix-tip: a dip of Dove makes the color just a little less intense.
In The Mix
As we briefly mentioned in the overview of the colors, you can mix all colors. Because of their beautiful, but intense color, some colors might scare you, like Auburn or Dove. But these colors are ideal for mixing!
Dove makes other colors a little cooler. Hybrid Dye looks great on clients with blonde hair. Also, this color is great for mixing with Choco and Espresso, where it adds a cool undertone.
Hybrid Dye Auburn is perfect as a mixing color to create even more warmth. It makes another shade just a little warmer and gives that soft glow. Ideal for clients who have a warm look.
The Hybrid Dye Midnight is almost black, but good for mixing with other colors. Do you have a client with a darker skin tone and want to make the color Choco or Espresso just a little darker? Then this color is perfect!
