If you think your Instagram feed was full of fluffy eyebrows in the summer, you can expect to see more of the same this fall. From Zendaya to Kourtney Kardashian and of course Lily Collins, they’re all known for rocking bushy and shiny brows. There are several ways to accomplish this trend including the popular lamination.
Brow lamination is basically a perm for your brows as it gives them a set, uniform shape for an extended period of time. Instead of curls, a setting lotion helps brow hair stay brushed up and lifted upward for about six weeks.
The actual process starts off by painting a lifting cream onto the brow, which creates a chemical process that breaks down bonds in each hair, allowing them to be moved into a new shape. Next, the brow hairs are brushed up into place and a neutralizer is applied to reform the bonds into their new shape. Then a nourishing oil is added to the brows to replenish their moisture after the chemical treatment process.
From there, you can tweeze, wax or tint your brows – depending on the look you’re going for. You can expect your laminated brows to last up to 6 weeks.
I went to Perfect Brows NYC. The owner actually met me at a salon closer to my area so that I could try their service. They charge $80 for the threading, tint and lamination. Not bad compared to other places that charge almost $200!
