The hottest treatment on every brow lover’s lips – lamination. Delivering perfectly feathery, fierce & fuller-looking brows without the need for daily product application and constant touch ups, lamination is the shortcut to effortlessly natural brows that are always ready to impress. So what actually does this treatment involve? And more importantly…how do I do eyebrow lamination?

Read on for the full lowdown and discover how you can learn the techniques and tricks behind this beauty industry heavyweight.

What is brow lamination?

Eyebrow lamination is the name given to a semi-permanent treatment which involves the straightening and lifting of the brow hairs, using a chemical solution and brush.

This solution gives the hairs a flexible texture, which allows a brow artist to lift and shape them, as well as possibly applying a tint to improve texture and fullness. The brows are then set into a flattering shape arch, which lasts around 6-8 weeks.

Often referred to as an ‘eyebrow perm’, this treatment is the perfect choice for someone who wants to accentuate and revitalise their brow look.

How do you do brow lamination?

The first step is a consultation. A brow expert will work with their client to determine the right style, shape and texture for each individual, helping them to construct the perfect brow look for them.

Once a design is chosen, a technician will clean a client’s brows with a cleansing agent, before applying the first solution. This first treatment allows them to place the brow hairs into the desired shape, usually fluttering upwards. This treatment can be left on for a period of time to aid with flexibility.

Once the tech and client are happy, the setting solution will be applied, which bonds the hairs into their new position. Once fully set, the products are removed with a cleansing serum that helps to condition and strengthen the hairs. A nourishing oil will then be applied to moisturise the hairs and skin to reduce irritation or dryness from the chemicals treatment.

There is also the option to add other elements to a treatment, helping to create the best brows possible for a client: tinting or colouring as well as hair plucking and waxing can also be included in a treatment upon request.

What’s unique about brow lamination?

Lamination has a high success rate, while being a very non-invasive procedure. Unlike microblading, which has tattooing involved, lamination uses only your natural hairs and shaping techniques. Laminated brows are great for flexible styling too. Their malleable shape means that those forehead feathers can be brushed into any desired position, depending on the look you would like to achieve. 

This treatment has become incredibly popular with brow lovers across the land, due to its ability to work with all shapes and textures of brow. For those living with the effects of hair thinning, over-plucking or wayward brow hairs, lamination can be a great trick to use to achieve a fuller and more even look.

Like any beauty treatment, there are always risks of allergic reaction or skin irritation. If you know you are prone to dermatitis or other skin conditions and allergies, be sure to consult with your beauty therapist – and a doctor if needed – to ensure a safe procedure.

Can you laminate your brows at home?

Honestly? We wouldn’t advise it.

Professional training is essential to be sure that the treatment is long lasting and effective, and the integrity of the hairs is preserved. The solutions are chemical in nature, and used incorrectly could cause skin irritation, allergic reactions or more serious health complications. Not to mention that hygiene standards must be kept to a high standard in any beauty treatment!
