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,’ my therapist Thea explains. 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. Before the treatment, it’s imperative that you do your research to ensure you get the results you’re after.
Brow lamination is almost like a perm for your eyebrows; similar to the well-known lash lift treatment. They're both ways of enhancing what you already have by manipulating the hairs with chemicals. The treatment is often paired with a brow tint for a bolder enhanced look.
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.
Are brow laminations worth it?
It's saved me at least four minutes every day, which adds up to over an hour and a half of extra time each month. I'd say if you're not happy with your brows in their natural state, definitely give this treatment a go - they can make even the thinnest of brows look fuller and natural.
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 takes unruly or thinning brow hairs and smooths them out while lifting the hair in a more vertical direction, relaxing and lifting the hairs that have a natural downward growth pattern.
Can brow lamination treatment be reversed? Yes if it's within 24 hours of the treatment and by washing with water.
If you get your brows wet following the treatment, they won't set in place, losing their shape a little. Take your time when you use any products in the facial area, including water-based makeups, avoiding the brows for a minimum of 24 hours.
Generally, brow lamination lasts from four to six weeks. Depending on how well you look after your brows, it can last up to eight weeks. After the four to six-week period, it's recommended that you get your brows re-laminated in order to maintain the look over a longer period of time.
Your stylist will apply some make up to complete your BrowSculpt treatment. After that, we recommend that you avoid applying any heavy make up around the brow (such as foundation or concealer) for 24 hours after.
Just as perming the hair on your head can lead to dryness and damage, brow lamination could potentially damage your eyebrows in the same way. Your chances are greater if you repeat the process too often, or sooner than 6 weeks. Another more serious risk is eye damage.
Can I brush my brows after brow lamination? You should avoid brushing or touching your brows for the first 24 hours, but after you can absolutely brush them. In fact, it's encouraged.

Is there anyone who shouldn't get their brows laminated? Marris says lamination is “open to anyone and every one” as long as your skin doesn't react negatively to the formula (that's why you we always start off with a patch test).
