Brow Lamination FAQ
What is a Brow Lamination?
Eyebrow lamination is the latest beauty secret that will thicken and enhance your natural brows. Similar to the idea of a lash lift, brow lamination involves the application of a setting lotion that gives the brow hair a semi-permanent “brushed up” and lifted look. Whether you have thin, thick, or over-plucked eyebrows, brow laminating is the perfect solution to give you the everyday look you want, without effort.
How do I prep for a Brow Lamination?
Prior to your brow lamination appointment, we recommend the following:
Avoid using exfoliants, retinoids, or AHAs on your face for one to two weeks before your brow lamination
Avoid tweezing at least one week prior to your appointment
Please come to your appointment without any makeup on your face
Brow Lamination "Don'ts" in the first 24 hours after treatment
Don’t get your eyebrows wet (avoid the shower & bath)
Don’t go into a sauna
Don’t use oil-based products
Don’t apply heavy creams, makeup, or makeup remover to your brows
Don’t sleep directly on your brows (we know, easier said than done for our stomach sleepers)
Why can't I get my brows wet after a lamination?
Similar to a lash lift, keeping your brows dry in the 24 hours following your lamination treatment is very important. During the lamination process, we use an assortment of creams and a permanent gel to relax and shape your brows. If you get your eyebrows wet too soon after we finish applying these products, your brows do not have a chance to set with their new shape.
How Long Does a Brow Lamination Last?
A brow lamination will last about 6 weeks (again, depending on aftercare). Be sure to follow the “Don’ts” mentioned above in the first 24 hours following your treatment for longevity. In the 48 hours following your treatment, you can apply a hydrating balm to your brows daily. We also recommend brushing your brows in an upright/styled position anytime following a shower (or after getting your brows wet) to help keep their new shape.
