When you visit a salon, you’ll see lots of different aesthetic procedures being performed in addition to brow grooming. With regular hair waxing operations and the rising popularity or increased demand for brow lamination, a great alternative for micro-blading, it is safe to conclude that brow care trends won’t be fading off anytime soon. This cutting-edge beauty procedure called brow lamination has gained favor for emulating the current style of thick, yet less-bushy brows.
For those who adore the “brushed-up” look but struggle to manage their brow hair because it is too straight or too fine, a brow lamination is a terrific option. Continue reading about this novel technique and how it could improve your brow game.
What Is Brow Lamination?
Brow lamination also referred to as a brow lift or brow sculpt, is essentially an eyebrow straightening procedure. It was first introduced in 2019 in the UK, and it most recently widened its market to include the United States. If you have wild and unruly brows or wish to shift the direction of your hair development, this brow treatment is fantastic. Your eyebrows may look bigger and more defined after receiving this procedure.
Eyebrow lamination restructures the brow hair more like a perm for your natural brows. Your existing eyebrow hair will be treated with two to three solutions to give them a more defined and consistent shape for a protracted period. We use a setting lotion to help the brow hair stay “brushed up” and lifted upward for roughly six to eight weeks instead of the traditional curls you think of when receiving a perm for your hair.
Benefits of Brow Lamination
Eyebrow lamination is best suited and advantageous for those who want to make their thin eyebrows look fuller within a short period.
It’s also best for those who might not want to fully commit to their new brow look, as the treatment only lasts for about six weeks as against micro-blading which typically lasts about 18 months.
The following are some additional advantages of brow lamination:
- The final appearance of a laminated brow is natural.
- Your brows will appear larger and “fluffier” after the procedure.
- The process is non-invasive and needle-free.
- Depending on aftercare, the semi-permanent procedure only lasts between 6 and 8 weeks which is great for people who don’t want a full commitment.
Is Eyebrow Lamination Permanent?
No, it isn’t. Laminated brows typically last four to six weeks. Up to eight weeks may pass depending on how well you maintain your brows. To keep the look for a longer amount of time, it is advised that you get your brows re-laminated after the four to six-week period.
How Long Does A Brow Lamination Treatment Take?
The actual brow lamination procedure just takes a few minutes—about 15-20. In addition to tinting and/or waxing the brows before or after some brow lamination procedures, this can take anywhere from 30 to 40 minutes in a salon.
What Does The Brow Lamination Process Involve?
In a way, brow lamination is similar to getting your brows permed because it gives them a consistent, established shape over an extended period. A setting lotion helps brow hair stay combed up and lifted upward for roughly six weeks instead of creating curls.
The first step is the consultation session, during which your brow expert will have a thorough conversation with you and use brow mapping to determine your ideal brow style.
Following brow cleaning, your technician will arrange your brows upward while applying Brow Fix to ensure that all brow lamination solutions target the brow from root to tip. During the course of the procedure, this solution keeps the brows in position.
After that, a brow styling cream is used to trigger a chemical reaction that loosens the links between each hair, enabling the brows to be shaped in a different styling to the state of the hair, the solution is left on the brows for a specific amount of time.
A brow setting solution is then administered, which helps to secure the brow hairs in their new position. Again, according to the state of the hair, the solution is left on the brows for a specific amount of time.
To give your brows more color and improve the treatment’s outcomes, you can also choose to have them tinted.
After removing all remnants of the aforementioned products from the brows, Brow Nourish— a specifically formulated keratin-infused brow serum — is applied to the brows to hydrate and condition the hair.
Finally, the brows are then brushed into the proper position, which can be changed based on the appearance you want. It is possible to fluff up or shape your brows to look more natural.
Brow Lamination Aftercare
Even while following the aftercare instructions after your brow lamination is crucial, it is not as complicated as micro-blading. It is advised to avoid heat, steam, strenuous exercise, smearing, wetting your eyebrows, and sleeping directly on your eyebrows for the first 24 hours after the procedure.
You can moisturize your brows every day with castor oil or another moisturizing balm within 48 hours of your lamination appointment. It is also advised to brush the brows into place with a mascara wand after a shower to “set” the brows.
Other things to avoid after getting your brows laminated include; applying any creams or oils in the vicinity of the eyebrows, using any type of makeup on your brows, taking part in hot yoga, steaming showers, and other sweaty stuff.
Are There Any Side Effects Of Brow Lamination?
Even though brow lamination is less invasive than tattooing or other related operations, there are still certain adverse effects to be aware of. These concerns are primarily connected to skin sensitivity brought on by chemical use. These often consist of redness, swelling, itching, peeling, and bumps.
Brow lamination is a beauty treatment that can give you naturally fuller-looking eyebrows; something I’d love to call an “instant brow lift”. It is generally a safe procedure. In comparison to other brow procedures like Micro blading, it is a cheaper and less permanent alternative and produces visible results right away. If you want a new appearance that is simple to keep, brow lamination is the procedure to take into account.
Additionally, it’s a really popular trend right now, so if you want to attempt this new style, now would be the perfect time to get your brows laminated.
If you’re not an expert, it is not advisable to attempt this treatment on yourself or anyone else at home. It’s a treatment that should only be done by a licensed beauty technician due to the chemicals and the careful steps required.
