Brow Trend Alert : Brow Lamination 🚨🚨🚨
What is Brow Lamination?
We’ve seen a multitude of wacky brow trends over the past few years. Remember the fish tail brow?!
Over the past decade eyebrows have become the must have accessory for a youthful and polished appearance. Good brows can give our faces structure, give the eyes definition and even have an anti ageing effect.
HD Brows, Henna Brows, Microblading, Eyebrow tattooing, Hair Stroke Eyebrows, Powder brows and Ombré brows are staple services on any brow stylists menu. But what about Brow Lamination?
Originally from Russia, brow lamination goes by quite a few names, the “fluffy” brow, the “brushed up” brow and the “feather” brow, amongst others.
Essentially brow lamination is a brow lifting treatment (a bit like a lash lift or perm) designed to keep the hairs of your eyebrow brushed up and helps to tame bushy and unruly brows and sets them into place.
How does Brow Lamination Work?
- The treatment begins with a consultation to determine what you want to achieve.
- A solution is applied to the hair to mould it into shape.
- A second product is applied to set the brow hairs into their new shape.
- Brows are usually tinted for definition (plus the chemicals used can sometimes lighten the hair so this darkens them again).
- Finally a serum is applied to nourish and condition the eyebrow hairs.
Brow Lamination : The Verdict
Brow Lamination : Love it or hate it?
Although this treatment has being doing the rounds for a while, I’m still on the fence about it. When done well (see this photo from the London Brow Co) and fairly subtly I actually quite like the result, plus I can see the benefit for taming bushy brows for those with really unruly brow hairs or brows that grow downwards and make the eyes look sad.
On the other hand, when the brows are brushed up so high that the wearer looks like they’ve been caught in a wind tunnel, I’m sorry but it’s a no from me.
I guess it still remains to be seen whether or not this is a fad treatment or whether it will stand the test of time. It’s still growing on me so if there is a demand for it in months to come, you may well see these treatments appear on my treatment menu.
