Eyebrow Lamination

People are always looking for ways to fix their eyebrows so they look nice, neat, and perfect.  I came across another way of doing eyebrows.  It's called eyebrow lamination.  No you don't use a machine to add some sort of plastic covering.  Eyebrow lamination means that your brows end up with a high shine and are slicked down and is sometimes referred to as an "eyebrow perm".  The technique originated in Russia.

The process takes thin or unruly brows that have gaps or been over plucked smooths them, and orient the hairs so they are in a more vertical line.  They look like you've gelled them.

In addition, the process takes less than an hour, creates the illusion of hair growing back in, and is both noninvasive and temporary. They use a type of lotion that sets the brow hairs into a specific  and it lasts between 6 and 8 weeks.  The actual process begins with painting the brows with a lifting cream designed to break down bonds in the brows so their position can easily be changed. The brows are then brushed into the desired position and a neutralizing lotion is applied to reestablish bonds.   Finally, an oil is applied to the brows to replenish them due to the chemicals applied in the lotion and neutralizer. 

Once the brows are laminated, they can be tweezed, tinted, or waxed. Since the brows undergo chemical treatment, it is possible the skin may end up irritated so the skin is dry, red, and flakey.  In addition, the skin might end up swelling, peeling, or break out in a rash. Since the eyebrow is close to the eye itself, there is a possibility that the chemicals could end up in the eye. The chemicals used can also cause breakage of the hairs, dryness, or hair loss just like the hair on your head when its over processed so using oils and conditioners helps prevent this from happening.

One way to ensure your laminated brows last longer is to apply a clear gel to them since the process can cost between $50 and $100.  It is also recommended that a person not undergo the process any sooner than 6 weeks or the hair in your brows could undergo significant damage.  

When looking for someone to do the brow lamination, you need to ask certain questions of the practitioner before allowing them to do it.  Ask them how long they've been doing this. What type of credentials or licenses do they have to do this? How much does it cost?  Also ask to see a portfolio of their work so you can see it.  Finally, ask them about possible side effects and what to do after the process.  Ask if they are available afterwards in case of questions or issues.

Many people love this method since it leaves your eye brows nice and full and only needs to be done every month and a half to two months.  Let me know what you think, I'd love to hear.  Have a great day.
