Move over, microblading…
It’s the hot new treatment that’s everyone wants to try: brow lamination are the two words on every brow enthusiast’s lips. The results speak for themselves, delivering fuller-looking brows without the need for your best eyebrow make-up products. When you look at the before and after pictures, it’s hard to believe both shots are the same person’s natural brows.
Brow lamination involves straightening and lifting the hairs using a chemical solution, which allows the hairs to have more flexibility to move them into your desired shape, therefore covering any gaps or stray areas. After your natural brow hairs are straightened, a fixing solution is applied to keep the hairs straight, as well as a tint if desired. The result is fuller-looking brows that stay in place when brushed into shape, lasting around six weeks.
What’s the difference between brow lamination and microblading?
While microblading involves your therapist using semi-permanent dye strokes to fill in your brows, brow lamination straightens and lifts your natural hairs to achieve a full and feathered look, with no tattooing involved.
Brow lamination aftercare
For the first 24 hours after your treatment, it’s important to keep your brows completely dry and avoid touching them. After that, Thea advised me to keep the area moisturised using an oil or cream
Patch test 48hrs prior to treatment required. Shape/tidy and tint included.
