Eyebrow lamination is the best new alternative to microblading for fuller-looking brows. Brow lamination takes your unruly or thinning brow hair and smoothes it out while also lifting the hair in a more vertical direction. The end result is super smooth brows that look like you have brow gel on them. Brow lamination is basically a perm for your brows, as it gives them a set, uniform shape for an extended period of time. A setting lotion helps brow hair stay brushed up and lifted upward for about six weeks.
What is Eyebrow Lamination?
Laminated eyebrows are essentially a perm, but for your eyebrows! You’ll get an impression of having lifted, orderly-looking eyebrows. The process involves laminating the brows using a specialized keratin-based eyebrow treatment: The method starts with combining your existing eyebrow hairs into direction and shape to give you fuller-looking brows. Brow lamination creates volume where there was none before through combing natural brow hairs together, so they look thicker and give direction to how it all lays out on one’s face.
How does it work?
Brow lamination involves the “perming” of your eyebrow hairs to provide a fuller, more even look. It can also help keep them in place after washing off any cosmetics you may wear. The process is a quick and simple procedure, the time it takes from start to finish usually ranges anywhere from 20 – 40 minutes.
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.
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.

Before & After
Laminated Brows Aftercare
After the procedure, your eyebrows will look thicker, fuller, straighter and combed up into the ideal shape. They should look like the ultimate groomed, brushed-up eyebrows. If you’ve got unruly eyebrows and don’t want to spend hours of your life grooming them, or alternatively, if you’ve got barely any eyebrows at all and want to give them the appearance of thicker, feathery arches, brow lamination is for you.
Having said that, here are some tips on how to care for your newly Laminated Eyebrows:
Avoid using steam rooms, saunas or sunbeds for at least 48 hours post brow lamination (we also advise no to get your brows excessively wet for the first 24 hours).
Facials and other face treatments should be avoided for 24 hours post treatment.
Be gentle around your brows, try not to rub them when washing your face and always pat dry. Remember to brush them upwards after washing.
It is not advised for you to apply makeup or any self tanning products for 48 hours following on from your treatment.
