Brow Lamination, also known as Brow Lift(ing), is being called "the hottest beauty trend" by both Allure and Vogue magazine, is all over Instagram and Buzzfeed, but what is it? Essentially, it's a perm. Yeah, a perm - for your brows! This treatment is exactly what I have been waiting for! I can now smooth out and straighten cowlicks and curly hair in the brow, making it straight and easy to style - I can completely change the hair's growth pattern into something more desirable for the client's style - the possibilities are totally endless. This service includes a Brow Shaping using soft wax only, with additional trimming and tweezing as needed.
How does it work?
For clients with coarser hair, I start by using a thin liquid that saturates and softens the hair cuticle, making it easier for the permanent gel solution (step one) to penetrate. From there, the gel breaks down the molecular bond that holds the existing hair structure together. I then apply a neutralizing solution (step two) that re-bonds the hair, allowing me to sculpt a new shape or design for each client. At this point in the service, customized treatments can be added: tint color or keratin treatment. The final step is an Argan oil and vitamin E conditioning balm that restores moisture lost during the chemical service and protects the skin and hair until regular grooming and exercise can be resumed in 36 hours.
How do I take care of my new brows?
This is a low-maintenance service but requires daily aftercare at home: I provide aftercare kits for Lamination services to each client so they can properly care for their new brows at home! Each kit includes a 10ml mascara tube filled with castor oil (to be used every night) and a 3ml jar of Olaplex No. 3. I recommend using this product 2x a week as an overnight treatment for best aftercare results.
How often should I re-laminate?
Laminating brows too often can lead to overprocessing: the results will cause coarse, wiry, curly texture, breaking, and fall-out. Brow health is the number one priority at Brows By Jane so please schedule your lamination appointments 8-12 weeks apart.
Who can't get laminated?
Clients using any form of retinoids/retinol, prescription skincare, and/or acne medication are not eligible for services at Brows By Jane. Please wait 30 days after receiving a chemical peel, dermaplaning treatment, microdermabrasion, microblading (any form of eyebrow tattoo), or microneedling to seek out this service. Those experiencing hormonal changes or hair loss due to pregnancy, birth control, stress, or surgery may not be ideal candidates for lamination, as the chemicals used may cause brittleness or premature shedding of the brow hair. I recommend that Brow Rehab clients wait until I approve them as candidates before booking this service.
Clients allergic to glyceryl monothioglycolate, ammonium thioglycolate, tree nuts, glyceryl rosinate, palm oil, grapeseed oil, soybean oil, caprylic/capric triglyceride, chamomile flower, Pentaerythrityl Tetra-di-t-butyl hydroxyhydrocinnamate, titanium dioxide, or paraffinum liquidum, or those with open cuts, wounds, infections, undiagnosed lumps, or sunburn in the brow area cannot be serviced.
