Enhance the look of your natural eyebrows with brow lam. Here’s everything you need to know about getting your eyebrows laminated.

Achieve a fuller, more defined look

Laminated brows are a fantastic option if you want thicker, darker brows with great shape and definition. Simply enhance the brow hairs you already have!

Brow lam is a relaxer for your brows. You will have manicured, fuller brows by tinting and taming those unruly brow hairs. You will also spend less time in front of the mirror messing with your eyebrows.

What Is Brow Lamination?

Brow lam is a non-invasive beauty treatment that uses a chemical relaxer to soften and straighten your brow hairs. This perm procedure redirects unruly eyebrow hairs upward to create a fuller, more defined look.

This easy, painless service often includes brow tinting to give the existing hair a bolder, enhanced look. The process is suitable for all brow types and can last up to eight weeks.

What Are the Benefits of Brow Lamination?

Are you tired of struggling with unruly or sparse brows? This might be the solution for you.

This popular beauty treatment creates a fuller and more defined look. The top brow lamination benefits include:

  • Non-invasive and pain-free
  • Creates a bold, thick, fluffier look.
  • Can be done on microbladed brows.

Who Is a Good Candidate for Brow Lamination?

While it is a safe, non-invasive treatment, we do not recommend brow lam if you:

  • Have downward-growth brows.
  • Have very thin or short eyebrow hairs.
  • Are pregnant or breastfeeding.

If you don’t fit in one of those three categories, you are a good candidate!

How Is Brow Lamination Done?

The brow lam process is simple and non-invasive.

The artist achieves those perfect, defined brows in seven simple steps:

  1. Cleanse and prepare your brows.
  2. Apply a brow-safe perm solution to straighten your brow hairs temporarily.
  3. Brush your brow hairs upward in a uniform vertical direction.
  4. Apply a setting lotion to fix the hairs in place.
  5. Tint your brows to enhance their color and shape.
  6. Tweeze or wax stray eyebrow hairs.
  7. Nourish the brows with oil to complete the treatment.

The entire process takes an hour or less to complete.

How to Prepare for a Brow Lamination Appointment

There is no special preparation for a brow lam appointment.

To ensure the best results, arrive with your brows free of makeup and adhesives.

How Long Does Brow Lamination Take?

A brow lam appointment takes 45-60 minutes. The duration may vary if your brows are tinted, tweezed, or waxed.

How Long Does Brow Lamination Last?

Generally, expect your brow lam results to last 6-8 weeks.

The results will vary based on your natural brow hairs and how well you care for them.

You can also repeat the brow lam process safely every ten weeks.

Brow Lamination Aftercare

The healing process is easy with no downtime.

Here are a few simple aftercare steps to ensure the best results:

  1. Wait 24 hours before gently washing your brows.
  2. Avoid excessive touching and rubbing for 24 hours.
  3. Avoid makeup for 24 hours. The goal is not to apply makeup to the brow area.
  4. Avoid direct sunlight, tanning beds, saunas, swimming pools, and steam rooms for 48 hours.
  5. Avoid harsh solutions on your brows.
  6. Keep your brows clean, natural, and makeup-free to extend the results.

Brow Lamination vs Microblading: What's the Difference?

Both brow lam and microblading are popular cosmetic treatments to enhance your brows. However, they’re quite different.

Here are the top five differences between brow lam and microblading:

Brow lamination:

  1. Is a temporary treatment, while microblading is a semi-permanent cosmetic tattoo procedure with long-term results.
  2. Straightens and shapes existing brow hair, while microblading creates new hair-like strokes.
  3. Is non-invasive, while microblading requires a handheld tool using fine needles and pigments.
  4. Produces a fuller, defined look, while microblading creates a natural, textured look.
  5. Zero pain and requires less aftercare than microblading.

How Much Does Brow Lamination Cost?

Brow lamination costs between $135-$150.
