The eyebrows are the frames of the face, and you have genetics to blame if yours don’t create a masterpiece. For as long as women have been turning to beauty treatments and applying makeup, the only way to alter the shape of the eyebrow was to use dangerous wax, painful tweezers or awkward mini shavers.
And to make matters worse, as we age and our eyesight begins to fade, so does the amount of natural brow hairs, leaving you with sparse brows, thin brows, and stray hairs—making the perfect pluck nearly impossible.
Every generation has had its brow trends. From the over-plucked tadpole brows of the 90s to the barely there brows of the 50s, brow style in 2023 is all about thick, fluffy, straight, an bold.
This new and increasingly popular brow trend, called brow lamination and it’s raising eyebrows all over social media. As celebs and influencers turn to brow lamination for fuller looking brows that create a desired face shape or control unruly brows, it’s now possible for you to achieve the desired look in less than an hour.

What is brow lamination?
Thanks to an innovative new brow lamination treatment that is easily accessible in 2023, impeccably styled eyebrows are just as attainable as beautiful designed hair. Treatments that will do everything for you from trim and tidy your brows to complete transforming them, creating the beautiful face frame you’ve always dreamed of, is simple, painless, and affordable.
If you’re a newbie to the world of brow lamination, have no fear! We’ve got you covered. Brow lamination is a non-invasive brow treatment that softens, repositions, and sets your natural brow hairs to create a fuller and smoother, yet natural look with minimal post-service maintenance.
How does brow lamination work?
Similar to a brow perm, brow lamination is a semi-permanent cosmetic treatment, performed by a brow expert, that involves applying a chemical solution to the natural brows to reshape the brow area and setting the eyebrow hairs in an upward position. Similar to a lash lift, brow lamination permanently sets the brow hairs, and ultimately reimages the frame of your face.
Brow lamination works by chemically breaking down the bonds in the eyebrow hairs, allowing them to be reshaped and set in a new direction.
The result is a fuller, more defined brow shape that lasts for up to eight weeks. The process is painless and typically takes around 30-45 minutes to complete.
It’s worth noting that brow lamination is not suitable for everyone, and it’s important to consult with a trained brow expert before undergoing the treatment.
What happens during brow lamination?
The brow lamination process (also referred to as brow shaping or brow lifting) is a chemical process for the brow hair which reshapes the brow, creating a more desirable face shape. Brow lamination involves lifting and rearranging the natural hairs by using a perm solution that sets brow hairs upwards.
If you’ve had other brow treatments, it’s best to wait 4 to 6 weeks before getting your brows laminated for the best results. Even if you think you don’t have enough hair, don’t worry! The more natural your brow hairs are, the better because a blank canvas allows brow artists to create masterpieces.
