What Is Brow Lamination?
Brow lamination is one of the buzziest trends in beauty, and the treatment is often credited for the fluffy, defined brows popular with the celebrity and supermodel crowd.
WHAT IS BROW LAMINATION?
You know what laminated brows look like: tall, straight hairs that appear as if they were just brushed up with a spoolie and set with gel, yet keep their shape for days on end. But how do you get them to stick that way? It is done using a gentle perm solution, neutralizing lotion, and moisturizing treatment to temporarily relax and redirect your brow hairs upwards and into place. Because the hairs are relaxed, they appear longer, giving the effect of a larger brow shape. The hairs also become more pliable after lamination, making this a great service if you are looking for a ‘fluffy’ brow without the need for a brow gel, or if your natural brow hairs are curly, unruly, or point downwards.
Traditional brow services, such as waxing, can be incorporated into the service afterwards. Once the solutions have treated the brows, the lifted and laminated brows are groomed by waxing and tweezing to perfection by styling the new shape.
This is a great service if you are looking for a ‘fluffy’ brow without the need for a brow gel, or if your natural brow hairs are curly, unruly, or point downwards.
HOW LONG DOES BROW LAMINATION LAST?
The biggest con to brow lamination is the fact that it only lasts six weeks, though you might be able to stretch that number higher if you’re lucky and smart with your beauty routine. This means no steam, sweat, makeup, or skin care products on the brow area for 24 hours, or retinol and exfoliators for 72 hours.
Beyond that, incorporating our SQUALANE oil into your aftercare routine will help keep the hairs nourished and healthy before your next appointment.
WHICH BROW TYPES BENEFIT MOST FROM BROW LAMINATION?
All hair types and face shapes can get in on the fluffy brow trend via lamination, though you do need to have natural brow hair. If you’re sparse in that department, another service such as eyebrow microblading would be a better fit.
It's amazing for thin hair, because it strengthens and thickens the hair. It's great for thick hair because it tames and smoothes. For curly hair, it really irons out the texture and straightens.
