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. Brow lamination takes your unruly or thinning brow hair and smoothens it out while also lifting the hair in a more vertical direction.
Here’s what’s involved in the procedure:
First, your provider will apply a cream to your brows that aims to “lift” up your hairs.
Next, your brow hairs are brushed upward to help pull them in a uniform vertical direction.
Then your provider will apply a neutralizer to help seal your brows into place.
The last step is a nourishing oil to help prevent skin irritation and hair dryness that may be caused by the chemicals used during the perm.
In total, brow lamination takes 1 hour or less to complete. Optional add-ons to the procedure may include:
tweezing excess hairs
waxing to create your desired arch
tinting for color enhancement or changes
You will also want to apply a nourishing oil or cream every night to help prevent your brows from drying out.
