Sometimes called a brow lift or sculpt, brow lamination is where it’s at if you don’t want to commit to a semi-permanent brow option but need to give them a little love. Brow lamination works through two-steps, and lasts between 4 – 6 weeks. It only takes around 20 mins and the best thing is there’s no down time or healing process, you just get up out of that chair and go hun! We’re going to break down everything you need to know about lamination so you can decide for yourself whether to give it a try if you’re still on the fence.

How does it work?

Your brows will be brushed up to ensure the lamination solution reaches every part of the hairs. A brow chemical solution is applied that softens the hair follicle to allow your brow technician to reshape, set and refine your brows into the desired shape.

A styling cream is applied and left on for a specific amount of time according to your hair type.

At this point you can choose to have your brows tinted if you wish.

All product is then removed from your brows and and a nourishing serum contain keratin is applied to keep the hairs conditioned and hydrated.

What does the end result look like?

Brow lamination provides a thicker, more brushed up look so so if your brows are on the sparser or thinner side then opting for lamination could be the way to go to achieve a fuller look without makeup. Think of a perm but for your brows.

Can I do brow lamination myself?

We wouldn’t advise it! There’s chemicals involved so always best to book in with a professionally trained beauty therapist for brow lamination.

Is it worth the money?

Yes, we’d definitely say its worth the money. It’s actually a more affordable option than lots of other brow treatments given that it’s not permanent like microblading. From recent research, lamination costs between £40 – £55 in salons.
