What Is Brow Lamination And How Does It Work?

What Is Brow Lamination?

Brow lamination is a two-step eyebrow perming treatment that involves correcting the brow shape by setting the hairs in place using a chemical solution. In the first step, a cream is applied that breaks down bonds in the eyebrow hairs so they can be manipulated into a new position.

This treatment is amazingly effective at achieving a few things at once, it’s great for those who have slightly wild brows, for those seeking to create more fulness or create a certain shape.

Is Brow Lamination Permanent?

Generally, brow lamination lasts from four to six weeks. Depending on how well you look after your brows, it can last up to eight weeks. After the four to six-week period, it's recommended that you get your brows re-laminated in order to maintain the look over a longer period of time.

What is the difference between brow lamination and microblading?

Brow lamination requires you to have natural brow hair in order to hide gaps, like a brow “comb over” if you will, this in effect makes your brows look as full as naturally possible. Microblading adds hair-like strokes and is the solution for people with very sparse, thin, or non-existent brow hair, it's essentially tattooing, but it involves using a specialised and more delicate manual hand tool.

Do I need any Maintenance / Aftercare?

It is strongly recommended that you apply a conditioning serum twice daily after brow lamination to maintain healthy, hydrated eyebrow hairs. You wouldn't undergo a chemical treatment on your hair without conditioning and caring for it, and your brows should be no different.
