Brow lamination has been the most popular beauty treatment of the year! This “Less is More” trend was taken up by social media influencers and even celebrities in 2022. Now it’s one of the tasks in a girl’s to-do list to get brushed up, smooth, fuller, and natural-looking eyebrows.
What is Brow Lamination?
Brow lamination is a non-invasive procedure that involves straightening and lifting the natural eyebrow hair. It’s a relatively new beauty procedure for creating shiny and smooth eyebrows. Brow lamination originated in Russia and made its way to the west. Now women from all over Europe want to recreate the trending looks of thick, fuller, and bushy brows.
This treatment is also called “eyebrow perm” because a chemical solution is used to make the hair more flexible and move them in the desired direction and shape. If you are experiencing thinning or unruly eyebrows due to gaps, overplucking, or any other reason, brow lamination is a wondrous solution and a great alternative to Microblading.
What does the Process of Brow Lamination involve?
Natural and well-defined eyebrows without using pencils and powders are all a woman needs. Most of the salons are offering brow lamination services along with microblading. NobleLashesEU provides you with the brow lamination kit that consists of professional brow treatment products and comes under the label Noble Brow.
The actual process of brow lamination needs chemical treatment to pull the hair straight upwards which gives off a fuller and well-defined look. The complete process requires 50 minutes to 1 hour and involves the following steps:
Step 1: Use a cleaning solution to make sure that your eyebrows are clean.
Step 2: Apply a perming solution gently using a Q-tip and wait for the given time. It will soften the keratin in the hair and allow us to reshape the brow.
Step 3: Place an osmotic foil on your brow. Leave it for 8-10 minutes and then remove it gently.
Step 4: Apply the fixing lotion on your brows with a Q-tip and brush them in your desired direction. Cover it with an osmotic foil and press down firmly to hold it in place. Leave it for 8-10 minutes and remove with a damp cotton pad or Q-tip.
Step 5: In this step, you can tint your brows to give them a fuller look. You can find the complete guide to tint your eyebrows here.

Step 7: Always shape your eyebrows by plucking, threading, or waxing the extra hair, when the lamination process is completed to avoid irritation.

Is Brow Lamination better than Microblading?
Many people mistook brow lamination for microblading because the results of brow lamination are splendid. Microblading, also known as micro feathering, is a process that involves tattooing the hair-like strokes to fill in the eyebrows in the desired shape using microneedles. Whereas, brow lamination as you know earlier, allows your natural hair to sit in your desired direction to make it look fluffy and thick without using any needle. The results are very natural.
Microblading lasts up to 1 - 2 years which means you will have to stick to the same style for a longer period. Eyebrow lamination is a temporary option to style your brows. It allows you to change your brow style (after 6-8 weeks) and to keep up with the trends.
