Lamination is no longer just a reference to that shiny, important piece of paper your first-grade teacher sent home. This concept has made a grand return to our adult lives with the latest brow trend! If you have noticed pictures of full, slicked-up brows with a high-shine finish taking over your Instagram – that is brow lamination! More or less, it is semipermanent soap brows.
Gaps, thinning, over-plucking, unruliness – no matter your concern, brow lamination is an amazing solution and great microblading alternative. Brow lamination takes your unruly brow hair and smooths it ,with almost a gel look, while also lifting hair in a more vertical direction.
Brow lamination is basically a perm for your brows. Instead of curls, a setting lotion helps brow hair stay brushed up and lifted upward for about six weeks. The actual process is just a few steps.
1 – We start by painting a lifting cream onto the brow, creating a chemical process that breaks down bonds in each hair, allowing them to be moved into a new shape.
2 – The brow hairs are then brushed up into place and a neutralizer is applied to reform the bonds into their new shape.
3 – Nourishing oil is added to the brows to replenish their moisture after the chemical treatment process.
From here, the brows may be tweezed, waxed, or tinted, depending on the look you are going for. Your brow lamination can last up to two months, you can prolong the look with a clear brow wax.
In short, brow lamination is like a perm for your eyebrows, similar to the well-known lash lift treatment.
