The Latest Permanent Makeup Trend Hitting Essex: Brow Lamination

Whether it’s feather textured brows or microblading, it seems like trends for eyebrows are never ending! This year, the top brow trend hitting the beauty salons of Essex is brow lamination! Now, we’re imagining you have seen the phrase ‘brow lamination’ floating around Instagram and Facebook. But what exactly is it?

As a leading beauty salon in Essex, we asked our expert permanent makeup technicians for the lowdown on brow lamination.

What is brow lamination and how does it work?

Brow lamination is a technique of redesigning the brow hairs to keep them in a desired shape. It originated in Moscow and has subsequently spread across Europe where it has become incredibly popular. The process is similar to a perm for your hair but instead of making your eyebrows curly, it sets them in a uniform shape for a long time. The setting lotion is applied to the eyebrows then the hair is brushed up and lifted to create fuller, thicker brows. If you’re lucky, you could be walking around with bolder brows for up to two months.

How does it compare to microblading?

The result of brow lamination is similar to microblading. Brow lamination is designed to give the illusion of fuller, more defined brows - like microblading. However, the difference is that no pigment is added to your brows in the brow lamination process. Instead, it uses your own eyebrow hair and fixes it in place to create more defined brows. The eyebrow hair often has a slicked-up, shiny look, which is where the term lamination comes from.

Who should try brow lamination?

The treatment is suitable for most eyebrow shapes and styles, meaning everyone can try brow lamination. It is especially good for people with sparse or thinning brows so you can create the desired eyebrow shape.
