What Is Eyebrow Lamination?

Do you have your heart set on fuller, more natural-looking brows? Maybe you’re tired of microblading and want to take advantage of the latest brow trend. Whatever your reason, eyebrow lamination may be an excellent option for you.

Eyebrow lamination is a relatively new technique, but it has gained popularity quite quickly. It’s generally a quicker procedure than microblading and creates stunning, dramatic, long-lasting results. 

Curious about the ins and outs of brow lamination and want to try it for yourself? Here’s the lowdown on the latest brow trend gracing faces this year.

What Exactly Is Eyebrow Lamination?

Brow lamination gives your brows a thicker, shinier look that lasts up to a couple of months. The process is pretty quick and involves brushing your brows into shape and applying a perming solution to the hairs to maintain their positioning. It’s a perm for your eyebrows, in short.

The whole process may take about an hour or less to complete and is much less invasive than microblading or tinting, though you might want to consider adding a tint if your brows are super light.

The effect is semi-permanent, lasting up to a couple of months, so if you like the look, you’ll have to repeat the process more often than microblading. But it’s also a lot less intensive than microblading. There are no needles or dyes, so it’s a pretty straightforward process to undergo.

Benefits of Eyebrow Lamination

Besides the gorgeous, thick, luxurious look it gives your eyebrows, lamination has a few other benefits.

It’s non-invasive. Beauty doesn’t have to be painful, and this procedure proves it. There are no needles and no scraping, just pretty, lush brows that keep their lovely looks for weeks.

Lamination ‘fixes’ gaps. If you went a little crazy with the overplucking, you might have thin spots or gaps that you want to disguise. By brushing your brow hairs strategically, you can fix them in place and hide those thin spots until your brows fill back in.

It looks natural. The natural, wispy look is back in style, and eyebrow lamination gives you a look that’s better than natural.  Even aging, thinning brows can look fuller without looking fake.

It tames unruly hairs with less hassle. If you have wayward brows with hairs that want to go off in every direction, eyebrow lamination can save you from having to brush them into place every day. Skip the messy brow gels and still have beautiful brows without the extra work.

Shiny brows without the gel. Lamination gives your brows a polished, healthy, glossy look. It can make even thin brows look healthier and thicker, plus it can tame thick brows easily, making it an excellent choice for anyone.

Risks With Eyebrow Lamination

While it’s non-invasive, lamination isn’t without some level of risk. If you have sensitive skin, dermatitis, or other skin conditions, you may not be able to use eyebrow lamination.

Like with hair perms, the chemicals used in lamination can be very irritating to sensitive skin. If the chemicals get into your eyes, it could damage your sight. Therefore, you must always go to a skilled beauty professional for eyebrow lamination.

Generally, eyebrow lamination is a very low-risk procedure, but if you have any skin sensitivities, be sure to address them with your stylist before you begin the process. 

Is Eyebrow Lamination Better Than Microblading?

Eyebrow lamination is a very different procedure than microblading. It’s gentler, quicker, and less invasive. Both methods give you the appearance of fuller, more lustrous brows. But eyebrow lamination is less of a commitment than microblading.

After brow lamination, you’ll have a few months before you’ll need to repeat the process. Microblading lasts much longer, up to a year or more in many cases, so you won’t have to undergo the process as often. 

Which procedure is right for you? It depends. If you aren’t afraid of needles and want to go for low maintenance and long-lasting effect, microblading could be good for you. But if you want something easy and you only have to commit to it for a few months, eyebrow lamination is a great choice.
