When someone says lamination, it instantly brings flashbacks of childhood memories, where the teachers used to make students bind important documents and textbooks in plastic.
While it may sound like an esthetician will bind your brows in plastic, the reality, thankfully, is way better. Read more to find out all you need to know about the brow lamination process!
What is Brow Lamination?
Eyebrow lamination involves straightening of unruly or thinning brow hair to lift them into any desired shape to give the illusion of healthy brow hair growth.
It’s a non-invasive, temporary, affordable, yet impactful alternative to microblading. It helps smooth out the look while also covering any stray areas or gaps caused by overplucking, natural aging, illness, or any factor.
If you’re looking for a way to keep your eyebrows in place even after washing off all cosmetics that you may wear, here’s how the lamination process works.
Brow Lamination Process
Step #1: An expert esthetician will apply a special type of formulated brow cream infused with keratin to lift the eyebrow hair.
Step #2: The brow hair will then be brushed upwards and pulled in a uniform vertical or the desired direction.
Step #3: A neutralizing cream will then be applied over the brows to seal them in place.
Step #4: Nourishing oil is applied as the last step to replenish the moisture in the brows and minimize the risk of dryness or skin irritation that may be caused by the use of chemical solutions during the process.
Although the whole process usually takes less than an hour, some people also like to include optional add-ons for a sleeker look, such as waxing to get the desired arch, tweezing excess growth, tinting for changing or enhancing natural color.
What About Aftercare?
After getting eyebrow laminated, you’ll need to avoid any activity that may make them wet, which means no saunas, exercise, or hot steamy showers. Experts also recommend using nourishing oil or creams regularly to avoid patches or dryness.
Who Is It Best Suited For?
Brow lamination is a relatively new procedure; it’s a good fit for people who want to flaunt shiny, smooth brows or like to keep them styled in a particular way but are afraid of needles involved in microblading.
It’s also a time-saving solution for those who want to achieve a fuller look but are tired of using eyebrow gel every day, as brow lamination usually lasts from six weeks up to two months with proper care.
Some people think that when one opts for brow lamination, it is to achieve the ‘wet look’ but usually lasts only 24-hours, after which the final result is unveiled: natural and fluffy Instagram-worthy brows!
