Brow lamination is essentially a gentle perm for your brows. It’s a less permanent (and less painful) alternative to microblading. “Brow lamination is a nice service for those who want to groom their brows into more of a perfect shape, especially if you have unruly brows or curly hair. It just helps you straighten them and gives you a fuller look,” says Dmitrenco. “Brow lamination is also a great service to combine with brow shaping, brow Henna, stain or tinting,” she tells us.
Since my brow hairs are already dark and don't need tinting, I decided to just add some brow shaping to my treatment. I hadn’t gotten my brows done in a while, so it was time for a complete makeover but I asked that my eyebrows still look as natural as possible.
What Are the Benefits of Brow Lamination?
Brow lamination can change the look of your brows. As mentioned, if you have some unruly (or fine) hairs, this treatment can lay them down better. With smoother brows, you'll be able to reshape them better and enhance your arches a bit more easily to create a fuller look.
I’m Middle Eastern, so my eyebrow hairs are naturally on the thicker side, but they thinned out a little after years of over-plucking them in high school (seriously, why did we ever think that was a good idea?). My hair is also curly so my eyebrows can be unruly at times and always need a good trim. I was intrigued by the idea of brow lamination—although after looking at some photos online, I was worried my brows would look like they were electrocuted. Still, I decided it was worth a try.
