What is brow lamination?
Brow lamination is a popular eyebrow styling technique, and many beauty experts say it’s a great way to get the fluffy, feathery brows of your dreams. Perfect for all clients and its always recommend as the first step before microblading, if you have cold feet. Eyebrow lamination is a form of brow perming, setting the hairs into a new position using a chemical process.
The process of brow lamination begins with the application of a cream that breaks down the protein bonds in the eyebrow hairs. This allows the hairs to be easily brushed into a new upward position. Then, a second solution is applied, which reforms the protein bonds into this new position, holding the brow in its new shape for up to six weeks.
So, if you have unruly, flat or downward growing hairs, eyebrow lamination can change the direction of growth to create a more uniform look with a higher arch and a more desirable brow shape.
