Top Tips for Brow Lamination
Brow laminations are fast becoming a popular treatment and it's easy to see why. Clients can achieve thick and fluffy brows in less than an hour, and there's minimal aftercare required.
Brow lamination works for most eyebrow shapes and styles, from full to sparse. Making it ideal for anyone looking to improve the shape of their brows.
Here are some of our top tips for carrying out a brow lamination treatment and all the information you need to know to get the best results for your client.
Remember: Its a common misconception that once the brow lamination treatment has finished, the clients brows will hold the same shape for the full 6 weeks. However, this is not always achievable. The client will need to brush their brows into place regularly to help prolong the shape.
How do I do a brow lamination?
When doing a brow lamination treatment with Lifted, we recommend following the below steps:
- Cleanse the brows thoroughly with the Protein Remover Pads, to remove dirt and oils. Ensure the brows are dry by patting them with a tissue.
- Using a disposable applicator wand apply a thin layer of adhesive to the first brow.
- With a Y comb lift the brow hairs up, adjusting the placement to achieve the desired look. Repeat on the other brow.
- Dispense Step 1 Lifting Solution into a palette. Using an applicator wand apply to solution along the brow. Leave the Lifting Solution on for 8-10 minutes, depending on the condition and thickness of the natural brow hairs.
- Apply a strip of cling film over the brows and leave the process (if using cling film).
- Once processed, remove all traces of the Lifting Solution with a dry cotton pad. Repeat the process with Step 2 Fixing Solution. Leave on for approximately 5-7 minutes.
- Remove gently with a dry cotton pad, ensuring all traces of Step 2 Fixing Solution are removed.
- Apply brow tint if required.
- Remove any excess tint with damp cotton pads.
- Pat dry with a tissue, dispense Step 3 Enrich Solution. Use a mascara wand to brush through the brow hairs gently. Make sure the product is left on for 12 hours
During the treatment
Before you start the brow lamination treatment, you’ll need to carefully assess the brow hairs. We recommend following the timings stated in our brow lamination guidelines above. However, if the client’s hair is coarse, you may need to adjust the timings to improve the lamination.
You can also use cling film during the treatment, to lock in heat and help the product to work through. Remember cling film will speed up the process and shouldn’t be used if the hairs are damaged.
As with any treatment, good client aftercare is vital. It’s important to make sure your clients understand the steps they need to follow to ensure their brows stay fluffy and full.
The client must keep their brows dry for the first 24 hours, so the nourishing lotion has time to work through.
After the first 24 hours have passed, the client can then brush the brows into their desired place once wet after a shower. They’ll need to brush them into place when wet, so they set into place and maintain that fluffy look.
A brow lamination should last up to 6 weeks depending on how the brows are looked after. Here are a few more aftercare tips you can share with your client:
- For the first 24 hours after the treatment brows should be treated with care. We recommend not touching the hairs to ensure they stay in the correct direction.
- For the first 24 hours after the treatment avoid getting your brows wet, specifically no showers, hot baths, swimming, and saunas.
- We recommend using a Brow Gel or Conditioning Serum between appointments to keep brows in the best possible condition.
