7 Things To Know Before Your First Brow Lamination

Brow lamination has become a new & trendy way to get your brows ready for every occasion in Singapore. The treatment is used to give the eyebrows a more defined look and shape. However, there are a few things that you should know and keep in mind before getting your brows laminated.

1. What is Brow Lamination?

Brow lamination is the latest technique that beauty professionals are using to enhance the natural brow shape. This treatment is done by using a gentle perm solution, neutralizing lotion, followed by a moisturizing treatment to allow the brow hairs to have more flexibility. 

Therefore, it temporarily relaxes and neatly redirect your brow hairs upwards to create an appearance of fuller and thicker eyebrows. The final results show a similar effect with brow gel or soap brows – fuller, sleeker and more polished-looking brows. The treatment is low maintenance, no daily upkeep like applying eyebrow pencil, filling them in with powder or shadow, or shaping them up with waxes and creams.

2. How does Brow Lamination Work?

Generally, the process of Brow Lamination boils down to these 4 essential steps:

Step 1

First, the brow artist will apply a perm cream to your brows for 6-12 minutes that aims to straighten and relax your brow hairs.

Step 2

Second, your brow hairs are brushed upwards to help pull them in a uniform direction, hence, covering any gap or bald area.

Step 3

Next, a neutralizing lotion will be applied for another 6-12 minutes, to keep yourthe brow hair neat, and help seal the laminated brows into place.

Step 4

The final step is a moisturizing treatment which contains nourishing ingredients to help prevent skin irritation and hair dryness as well as strengthening the health of your brow hairs.

Optional: You can opt to have a Brow Tint to give your brow a darker and fuller looking effect. 

The whole Brow Lamination and Brow Tint process takes around 1 hour to complete.

3. How Long Does Brow Lamination Last? Are There Any Aftercare Tips?

The results can last 4-6 weeks, depending on the individual’s beauty and aftercare routine. This means minimal steam, sweat, makeup or skin care on the brow area for 24 hours, as well as avoiding retinol and exfoliators for 72 hours. 

There is one important thing to note, which is immediately following the treatment, the brow hairs will appear quite flat and intense. However, after the first 24 hours, you can start brushing your brows into your desired shape. It will help soften the look and make the brows appear fluffier.

4. Brow Lamination vs Eyebrow Embroidery

The difference between Brow Lamination and Eyebrow Embroidery is that Eyebrow Embroidery is a semi-permanent treatment, using micro-needles to implant pigments under your skin, giving you a semi-permanent shape to your eyebrows.

In contrast, Brow Lamination is a non-invasive and natural process that relaxes your natural eyebrow hairs and reshapes them into a fuller, thicker and more defined look.

In conclusion, those who prefer a more dramatic change in eyebrow shape or colour, should opt in for Eyebrow Embroidery. Brow lamination can be used on people with naturally thin brows or on those who desire a lifted, fluffy, and fuller-looking eyebrows.

5. What are Possible Side Effects?

While Brow Lamination is not invasive compared to other brow treatments such as Eyebrow Embroidery or Microblading, there are a few side effects you need to be aware of before booking your first appointment. As the skin around the brow areas are delicate, there may be side effects such as skin irritation caused by the chemicals used.

Some common temporary side effects include:

  • Swelling
  • Redness
  • Peeling
  • Itching
  • Bumps

These side effects do not occur to everyone, but mainly to those who have more sensitive skin type. The good news is, the reactions in most situations will subside gradually within a day.

6. Which Brow Types are Suitable for Brow Lamination?

One of the best advantages of brow lamination is that this treatment is suitable for all hair types and face shapes. It is a great option for those with naturally thin hair as it strengthens and thickens the hair, creating an appearance of fuller and thicker eyebrows. For thick natural brow hairs, Brow Lamination can tame and smoothen the brow hairs, making them neater with a more defined look. In addition, brow lamination is also suitable for individuals with curly hair as it irons out the texture and then straightens the hair evenly.

7. Brow Lamination Treatment Cost

In comparison to eyebrow embroidery, the cost of brow lamination is considered affordable. That being said, the cost of a brow lamination treatment varies across Singapore beauty salons, ranging from $60 to $100. The treatment prices greatly depend on the proficiency of the beauty technicians and the quality of the products used. 

It is recommended to avoid overly low-cost brow lamination treatments as there is a high chance the salon uses products that may compromise the health of your brow hairs and cause irritation to your skin.
