Up until now, microblading was the hottest trend in town, which helped you flaunt naturally full, timeless-looking brows. With the entire semi-permanent tattoo process, you could achieve the brows of your dreams! But with new beauty trends dropping almost every other day, it is time to move on from microblading to something even more ah-mazing!
The newest eyebrow trend on Instagram is… wait for it… brow lamination! Over the last few years, wow brows have been a major obsession specially among millennials. Girls today may forget to brush their hair, but not their brows. And that’s exactly why the beauty world cannot stop inventing new ways to help you flaunt thick, fluffy and drool-worthy eyebrows. So, get onboard with this all-new trend already. Here’s everything you need to know about brow lamination.
What is brow lamination?
Brow lamination is a godsend treatment for all those who have unruly and thinning brow hair. What brow lamination does is it smooths out unruly brows and lifts the hair in a more vertical direction. Your brows won’t just end up looking super smooth, but also look like you have brow gel on them. It’s also a great solution for all those with gaps in their eyebrows, as this treatment tends to hide those gaps and gives an illusion of major hair growth, making your eyebrows look naturally thicker, fuller and fluffier. If you’ve lost a lot of your eyebrow hair due to reasons such as ageing, illness or overplucking, then brow lamination is your rescue agent!
What is the process like?
In the brow lamination process, the expert will first start off by painting a lifting cream onto your brow. This chemical-infused cream will help break down bonds in each hair and give them a new shape. Next, the brow hairs are brushed up and a neutraliser is applied onto them to reform the bonds into their new shape. And lastly, a nourishing oil is applied on the brows to replenish moisture after the chemically-treated brow lamination process. The lotion applied to help your brow hairs stay brushed up will remain in place for anywhere from six weeks to two months.
What are the downsides of brow lamination?
While brow lamination sounds amazing, it does have its downside. The skin around the eyes is thinnest and most sensitive, therefore, using harsh chemicals on that area may make your skin prone to irritation, and at times could also cause eczema. Then, there is also the danger of the chemical coming in contact with the eye, which could lead to irreversible damage. Therefore, if you’re going for brow lamination, it’s important that you are extra careful during the treatment.
P.S. Condition and nourish your brow hairs with an oil or moisturiser post the treatment.
