Eyebrow lamination gained popularity as a brow styling trend when makeup artists and beauty influencers started using thick brow gels, adhesives, and even soap to lift and set brow hairs in place. Brow technicians then developed a treatment to achieve a more permanent version of this soap brow look, lifting, straightening, and tinting the hair.
The process involves applying two chemical solutions to the brow hairs, initially relaxing them and then fixing them into the desired shape with a neutralizing solution. Essentially, it’s like a gentle perm for your eyebrows, aiming to straighten and set them in an upward position, creating the appearance of thicker arches.

We should also note that part of the eyebrow lamination limitations and a notable factor of how successful results are is the type of brow hairs you have.
Coarser hair may require a longer time to process or stronger products than finer hair does.
Yes! In fact, the best brow lamination results are achieved with thick, voluminous brows. The more hairs you have and the thicker they are, the wider and more dramatic the arches.
Brow lamination is a simple process, but it does involve several steps. Here’s what you can expect when you come in for your appointment:
Preparation: First, you will have a chat with your brow tech about your brows goals. They will clean your brows of any makeup or other products and assess your brows. Together, you will decide if you need any extra steps after the lamination itself, like tinting or waxing. They should also do a patch test to make sure your skin doesn’t react to the chemicals.
Straightening the Brows: The brows are then brushed and combed in the desired direction. A chemical solution in the form of a cream is applied onto the brows – it creates a chemical reaction that breaks down the bonds in the hairs and relaxes each one, so they’re straightened and look longer. A plastic wrap is then put over the brows so the solution can do its eyebrow-straightening magic. How long the wrap will stay on depends on the curliness and thickness of your brows, but 5 minutes is enough for most clients. You might feel a tingling sensation, but nothing too uncomfortable.
Setting them Into Shape: The straightening formula is then cleaned off, and your brows are now soft and easy to manipulate. The tech brushes them into the desired shape and direction, and a fixing solution is applied that will set the hairs into shape.
Nourishing: At the end of the treatment, nourishing oil is applied to the brows to moisturize the hair and the skin. You will also be given aftercare instructions you should follow to ensure the longevity of your new brows. There isn’t really much maintenance involved, but pay attention to what your brow tech suggests.
You should be in and out of the salon within 1 hour.
Brow lamination is a relatively quick treatment. The lamination part itself takes about 15 minutes, but the length of the appointment depends on whether you’re having additional work done, like tinting and waxing.
Brow lamination aftercare is quite simple – you mustn’t expose your brows to sunlight or get them wet for 24 hours after the treatment (this includes avoiding saunas and steam baths, or any other activity that causes excessive sweating).
Also, avoid using active ingredients over the treated area for 3 days after your treatment, and don’t exfoliate the area mechanically.
After that, you can pretty much carry on with your normal routine but try to touch your brows as little as possible. You can tidy them up with a spoolie each morning if you feel the need to.
Most techs advise moisturizing your brows with an oil every day, as the chemicals can be drying and the hairs could use some hydration.
