One of the hottest new trends
Brow Lamination is like Perm for your Eyebrows!
Trends in fashion and grooming are a sign of the times. Big, extensively filled in, and heavily sculpted eyebrows were on trend for a while. Now, a more natural eyebrow that embraces a bit of fuller look is in. One way to get your eyebrows to look gorgeous and fashionable is to get brow lamination.
What Is Brow Lamination?
Brow lamination is a treatment process that was invented in Russia. It shapes and lifts your eyebrow hair, giving your brows a fuller appearance, a nice, naturally arched shape, and ensuring the hair all flows and lays in the same direction.
Lamination can be a great option for you if you:
- Have thinning eyebrows
- Have over plucked eyebrows
- Have eyebrows that are unruly
- Have eyebrows that need to be shaped
How Does Brow Lamination Work?
Brow lamination has been called a “perm for your brows”. In essence, that’s what it is. Let’s go through a brow lamination process to give you an idea of what you might expect if you decide to get this treatment and see these results firsthand.
Steps in a typical lamination treatment are:
- Preparation: The first part of the process is to cleanse the brows thoroughly so the technician and the client are able to look at the brows in their natural state and work together to decide the look they want to achieve for the client.
- Application: After the assessment, the technician will apply a lift cream to the client’s brows. The lift cream’s job is to break down the chemical bonds within the brow hair that tells it which way to grow. Some tingling sensation at this point is normal. This cream is left on for about 5 minutes. At this stage, the brows are typically brushed into the new shape the technician and client decided on.
- Cementing Bonds: When the brows are shaped and the lifting cream is removed, a neutralizing cream is applied. The neutralizing cream sets the new bonds within the eyebrow hair and helps it to maintain the new shape.
- Tint/Moisture: At this point in the process, it’s almost over. The client may have decided to change the color of their brows, so it would be now that the tint would be added to give them their desired color. Some technicians may also opt to finish with applying some oils to the brows to return some moisture that may have been lost during the chemical processing.
- Finishing Touches: The last step would be any tweezing, waxing, or threading to make sure the shape and look of the brows are exactly what the clients are looking for, if that is desired. Much like the tinting, it’s going to vary for each client.
Benefits of Lamination
Brow lamination has a lot of things going for it, which is why its popularity is taking off in so many countries. Some reasons that people gravitate to this treatment include:
- Quick treatment and results
- Natural hair, not extensions
- Long-lasting results
If you are interested in getting great looking eyebrows that can last up to 2 full months, don’t require needles or extensions, and cost far less than other procedures like microblading, brow lamination may be what you are looking for.
Aftercare and Precautions
The brow lamination procedure is quite safe, especially when performed by professionals. That being said, there are a few things to be aware of before your brow lamination:
- Potential irritation on eyelids from chemicals
- Potential eye damage if chemicals get into them
- Potential to over process and damage the eyebrow hair
After your treatment, you are recommended to:
- Avoid hot showers and exercise for a day
- Feel free to use conditioning serums after 24 hours
- To prolong your results, you can use brow gel as needed
