Brow Lamination

What Is a Brow Lamination?

Brow lamination is a treatment that straightens and lifts your eyebrow hairs using a chemical solution. The process allows the hairs to have more flexibility when moving them into your desired shape. This allows for the covering of any gaps or stray areas leaving you with fuller looking brows that stay in place. The treatment increases the width of your brows to help them look fuller. They can be brushed straight upwards or positions into a more natural looking shape.

 

What Happens During The Treatment?

Consultation; we will need to perform a patch test a minimum of 48 hours prior to treatment. During the patch test we can take this opportunity to discuss the process in full and what you hope to achieve from the treatment process.

 

Step by step: After your brows are thoroughly cleaned, they will be temporarily glued into place. A solution will the be applied to straighten the brow hairs, a second solution will be applied to fix them into place. If you would like to change the colour of your brows a tint will also be applied. If you have opted for a brow re-shape package, then waxing/ tweezing will be applied. Finally, they will receive a coat of conditioning lotion.

 

*Please note that brow tinting is not suitable for people under the age of 16

 

How Long Does The Treatment Last?

Usually around 6 weeks, but the treatment can last longer depending on your natural lash cycle. Please note that tint colouring can fade quicker if subjected to excess sunlight and can be lightened by some skincare products.
