As one of the most popular eyebrow styling techniques around, brow lamination is a brilliant way to achieve those fluffy, feathery brows you have always dreamed of. However, before taking the first steps towards treatment, it’s important to get a good idea of how it all works. More importantly, you also need to make sure that the treatment is right for you and find out whether alternatives (such as Brow Fix) are more suitable for you.
When Eyebrow Queen founder Nilam Holmes first developed the unique HD Brows treatment, she tested the brow lamination process in order to fight some of the clear problems that occur with unruly eyebrows. In the old days, Nilam and Eyebrow Queen were using products that were more suitable for lifting lashes and perming. While some of the results were gorgeous, there were many that didn’t live up to their potential. As a result, Nilam wasn’t sure about releasing anything that wasn’t reaching very high levels of satisfaction. Nowadays, the solutions and results are brilliant and, with the right education and experience, Nilam believes that the results are reaching completely new heights. To start things off, here is a run-down on how brow lamination works.
How brow lamination works
Brow laminations is a type of eyebrow perming that sets specific hairs into new positions. It does this using a safe and controlled chemical process. This process begins with the application of a form of cream, which breaks up protein bonds that are present in eyebrow hairs. The benefit of this process is that your hairs can be brushed much more easily in a new upward position. After this first solution is applied, the second one is applied, which works to reform the protein bonds in your eyebrow hairs when they’re in this upward position. The result is a holding of the brow in its new shapes for up to six weeks.
Is eyebrow lamination right for me?
If your eyebrows tend to be unruly, flat or stuck in downward positions, lamination has the ability to totally change the direction of growth and form a more uniform and desirable look. For example, eyebrow lamination treatment is very popular with those who have eyebrow hairs consistently growing in downward directions, giving off a flat look. The direction of growth can be changed using eyebrow lamination, in order to create a more arched look. Those with thin eyebrows will also benefit from brow lamination. By brushing the eyebrow hairs up and holding them in shape, your hairs will look much more wide and full.
However, it’s important to remember that everybody is different and isn’t right for everybody. Nilam herself states that she has ‘found some client’s just don’t suit the look and some hair doesn’t respond well or becomes weaker. And I don’t think that we have yet found the exact hair types that it works best on. I am already seeing huge improvements in products and methods even over the last 12 months but I think it will be another 12 months at least for the industry to have carried out enough treatments to be able to clearly identify which types of brows and hairs it best suits.’
If you’re considering using brow lamination treatment, always have a chat with a medical professional first. If you want to give your flat brows a reset – brow lamination treatment is a no-brainer!
