Brow Lamination

Brow lamination is a procedure to enhance the your eyebrows. Essentially, it is an eyebrow perm designed to make them appear fuller, straighter, and shinier for a look that perfectly frames your face. Brow lamination is perfect for anyone with unruly or unmanageable eyebrows or anyone who wants to simply enhance the appearance of their brows. This procedure lasts anywhere from six to eight weeks with proper maintenance. Ideal for both men & women.

Brow lamination benefits

Eyebrow lamination may help address a variety of concerns you may have with your own brows, including:

  • thinning hair that may occur with age

  • gaps in your brows from overplucking or overwaxing in the past

  • unruly hairs that tend to go different directions despite brushing them

  • a lack of shape or unevenness


Overall, brow lamination is designed to make brows look thicker and fuller. Pulling the hairs up vertically may also make it look like you are experiencing new growth. The entire process is also completely non-invasive.

How long does brow lamination last?

Perhaps the greatest downside to eyebrow lamination is that the effects are only temporary. To maintain your new brows, you will need to repeat the process every couple of months, similar to a traditional perm.

It’s also important that your provider applies a moisturizing oil or cream to your brows immediately after treatment. You may consider applying the same product at home to help keep your eyebrows healthy and damage-free.

Potential risks and side effects

While brow lamination is not invasive compared to brow surgery, tattooing, or other related procedures, there are still some side effects to know before booking your appointment. Such risks are mostly related to skin irritation caused by the chemicals. These include:

  • swelling

  • redness

  • peeling

  • itching

  • bumps


The side effects may occur directly beneath and above the eyebrows, but they may also extend to your eyelids.

This procedure may not be recommended if you have:

  • sensitive skin

  • rosacea

  • eczema

  • a history of contact dermatitis


Just as perming the hair on your head can lead to dryness and damage, brow lamination could potentially damage your eyebrows in the same way. Your chances are greater if you repeat the process sooner than 6 weeks.


  • Avoid getting the brow area wet for 24 hours

  • Avoid contact with direct sunlight, sunbeds, saunas, steam rooms and swimming pools for the next 48 hours

  • Avoiding excessive rubbing or touching of the treated area for 24 hours

  • Avoid using exfoliating (be it AHA, BHA or scrubs) and anti-ageing skincare around the brow area for three days either side of your treatment

  • Avoid fake tanning products (including gradual tan) on the face for three days either side of your treatment, as it can discolor the eyebrow tint (unless you’re after khaki coloured brows)

  • You should avoid applying any further heavy make up (foundations, etc) on the area around the brow for 24 hours

How do I keep my brows in shape after brow lamination?


Brow lamination does not permanently set your hairs in your desired, brushed up position. It breaks down the bonds in your hair so that you can easily manipulate them into the look you want. All you’ll need to do is brush them back into place with a spoolie brush in the morning to get them back to that fluffy finish – no product required. These results will last for 6-8 weeks.

To really enhance laminated brows and maintain that freshly laminated look right up to your next appointment, an ultra-strong eyebrow gel like is a must have.
