The process recreates the appearance of thick, lush brows and is the perfect solution for those individuals who prefer the brushed-up look but cannot tame straight fine brow hair adequately.
Is The Process Permanent?
On average, a brow lamination treatment generally lasts from six to eight weeks. The timeframe will primarily depend on how well you manage and look after your brows. If you keep a consistent management routine, the treatment can last up to eight weeks. If you wish to maintain the look over an extensive amount of time, without interruption, it is recommended that you have the re-lamination process repeated at the 6-8 week mark.
How Long Does The Treatment Take?
Although the actual process involved in the lamination of the brows is relatively short, averaging only 40 minutes, other steps may be involved depending on the client's preferences. Some treatments may also include having the brows tinted and waxed before or after the lamination procedure. Including these processes, you can expect the overall treatment to run 60ish minutes when performed in a salon.
The Brow Lamination Process
The first step in any treatment or procedure is to have a consultation. During the consultation, a brow expert will educate you on what brow lamination is and the process involved. They may also give you instructions on any before and after steps you may need to take on the day of the procedure. Many consultations also involve the expert mapping your brow to determine your most flattering brow style.
The brow tech will begin by thoroughly cleansing the brow. Then a product called Brow Fix will be used to place your brows in an upright position. The positioning will allow the solutions used for the brow lamination to successfully target those areas of the brow hair from the roots to the tip. The Brow Fix holds the brow in a predetermined position throughout the procedure.
Once the brows are cleansed, and in place, the expert will apply the Brow Style product. Brow Style is a type of cream that, through the creation of a chemical process, will break down the bonds present in each brow hair. The brows can be manipulated into the desired shape by using this breaking-down process. The overall condition of the brow hair will determine how long the solution is left on.
Once the brows have been styled and shaped into the desired finish, Brow Set is then applied. Brow Set is a solution that will set the brow hairs and hold them in their new position and shape. Again, the time that the solution is left on the brows is predetermined by the brow hairs condition.
Step 4 (optional):
Once the brows are shaped and set, there is the option of having the brow area tinted. By tinting the brow area, more color is added to accentuate the brows, which will enhance the treatment's overall results.
All traces of the products used in the previous steps are cleansed and removed from the brows. Brow Nourish, a keratin-enriched serum developed especially for the brows, will be applied. The serum aids in the conditioning and hydrating of the brow hairs after the laminating procedure.
The final step will be brushing the brows into their final position. The positioning of the brows is adjustable, depending on the look you want to achieve. You have the option of brushing the brows upward or into a shape that is more natural in appearance.
Can Brow Lamination Be Done At Home?
It is highly ill-advised that anyone attempt to perform brow laminating on themselves, or anyone else, from their home. Professional training is needed to complete the procedure correctly, primarily because of the various chemicals involved. Only a professionally trained beauty treatment therapist should perform a brow lamination.
