If you think your Instagram feed is full of fluffy eyebrows, you’re not imagining it! From Zendaya to Kourtney Kardashian and of course Lily Collins, they’re all known for rocking bushy and shiny brows. There are several ways to accomplish this trend including the popular lamination - which we offer at our Glamination Beauty Bar. One question we get often from our clients is, what exactly is brow lamination? Well, let us break it down for you.
Brow lamination is basically a perm for your brows as it gives them a set, uniform shape for an extended period of time. Instead of curls, a setting lotion helps brow hair stay brushed up and lifted upward for about six weeks.
The actual process starts off by painting a lifting cream onto the brow, which creates a chemical process that breaks down bonds in each hair, allowing them to be moved into a new shape. Next, the brow hairs are brushed up into place and a neutralizer is applied to reform the bonds into their new shape. Then a nourishing oil is added to the brows to replenish their moisture after the chemical treatment process.
From there, the brows may be tweezed, waxed, or tinted, depending on the look you're going for. You can expect your laminated brows to last up to 6 weeks.
If you’re not quite ready for lamination, perhaps consider Brow Henna. It’s a service that acts like a blanket over the hair and provides a coating to the hair shaft, coating the top layers of the hair cuticle only- giving the appearance of a thicker, softer and smoother hair and eyebrow. Containing hydrolyzed proteins, vitamin complex and antioxidants, Brow Henna helps to strengthen and restore hair growth and improves the natural condition of the eyebrow hair – it’s perfect for people who have over plucked eyebrows or are still recovering from a bad waxing experience. We love that it’s vegan and cruelty free, and it stays on the hair up to 6 weeks, and up to 14 days on the skin.
