Brow Lamination Is A Quick Fix For Permanent ‘Soap Brows’

When you think of lamination, you’d probably think of all the things you did in high school or university – mainly projects and scrapbooks.

But in the beauty world, lamination takes on an entirely different meaning to give users the appearance of ‘soap brows’ that don’t wash off when you cleanse.

According to Allure, brow lamination tames your unruly or thinning brow hair and smoothes it out, while lifting these brow hairs in an increased vertical direction. This trend originated in Russia and is in the midst of taking over European shores.

How does brow lamination work?

It’s something like perming your brow hairs, but instead of curling it, a salon-grade setting lotion is applied onto your brows to give them a permanent arch, which lasts up to six weeks. If you’re lucky, your laminated brows can last up to two months. The lotion allows the chemical bonds in hair strands to be broken and reshaped. Once reshaped, your brows are then brushed with a neutralizer to stabilize its shape.

Then, nourishing oil is added to your eyebrows to moisturise them and replenish any loss of hydration. It’s non-evasive and pretty cool.

If you’ve seen videos of microblading brows and wondered if the process hurts, maybe brow lamination is the alternative for you. Like microblading, brow lamination hides small gaps and gives the illusion of thicker hair growth, and the appearance of fluffy, full brows – but without the use of a needle, and we’re kinda thankful for that.

The end result?

Smooth brows that look like you’ve got brow gel on them, but you don’t need to actually do your brows every day. Whopee! For now, brow lamination hasn’t made an appearance on Malaysian shores, but we can’t wait until they do! Save us from unruly eyebrows, dear brow experts.
