Brow Lamination For Pros: What You Need To Know
Do you frequently have clients who come to you with concerns about brow growth, or thickness, or shape? If you're looking for a fast, safe, and effective way to help your clients fall in love with their brows, brow lamination might be the answer! At Avari Beauty, we've received many questions of late from other estheticians interested in our Brow Lamination Solutions, so we thought it would be a great idea to create a post filled with must-know brow lamination information and discuss how it could benefit your clients.
Brow lamination is a relatively new trend in the U.S., but we've been offering it for a while now at Avari Beauty, so we want to help other professionals who'd like to learn more or might be considering offering this service. In this post, we're going to look at the benefits of brow lamination and all of the reasons why you should add it to your beauty services list!
What Is Brow Lamination?
If you've seen those perfectly shaped, tall, straight eyebrows on Instagram, you've probably seen the gorgeous results of brow lamination. Also known as an "eyebrow perm," brow lamination is a process that helps to create beautifully defined eyebrows by giving a new structure to the brow hairs. Brow lamination also creates the illusion of fuller, denser brows by redirecting the hairs into the client's desired shape.
The beauty of brow lamination — and why clients love it so much — is that it gives "I woke up like this" brows with almost zero effort by making brows appear as if they are set with gel for 6 to 8 weeks. In addition, one of the most significant benefits of brow lamination is that it can provide clients with the brows they've always dreamed of in under 60 minutes!
Which Clients Could Brow Lamination Work For?
As a non-invasive, semi-permanent, and affordable solution, brow lamination is effective and safe for almost every client! This is especially true if the client has coarse, curly, or unruly brow hairs. In addition, clients with patchy brows can also benefit from the straightening and lengthening effect of brow lamination.
For optimal brow lamination results, your client must have brow hair, ideally throughout the entire length of the brow. This is because brow lamination is unable to cover large gaps or patches of missing hair.
Brow lamination works with the hair the client already has, which can be challenging if there is little to no hair. For clients experiencing hair loss or no brow hair at all, microblading may be a more appropriate option. It's crucial to discuss your client's needs to determine the best treatment to meet their desired results.
How Do You Laminate Brows?
Brow lamination is a process that relaxes the brow hairs with a gentle perm solution, the hair is then brushed into the desired direction and set with a setting solution, and finally, a nourishing treatment is applied to soften the brows and create a glossy effect.
Step one helps to temporarily relax the eyebrow hairs, making them straighter and more pliable. Using a perming solution causes the brows to appear longer and can help to give the illusion of fullness. We specially created the Avari Beauty Perming Solution to be effective but gentle on brow hairs to provide the best possible result. Our solution loosens the bonds of the hair and prepares them for a new lengthened direction and smoother appearance.
Once you've styled the brows in the direction your client desires, step two involves applying a fixing solution to keep their new shape. The Avari Beauty Fixing Solution fixes brow hair into place for a semi-permanent effect so your clients can enjoy gorgeous fluffy brows for around 6-8 weeks.
Once the brows have been styled and set, the final step is the apply a nourishing solution that keeps the brow hair healthy after treatment. Our Avari Beauty Nourishing Solution is infused with keratin proteins that help heal, repair, and protect both the exterior of the cuticle and the interior structure in the hair cortex. This is the final step in the process and leaves your clients with shiny brows that are protected and smoothed.
If needed, other services can also be combined with brow lamination, such as waxing and tinting, to achieve ultimate brow goals.
Brow Lamination Aftercare For Clients
To ensure your clients enjoy the best results from their brow lamination service, it's important to advise them carefully on their aftercare. Depending on the products you use, aftercare could differ, however; generally, we recommend that for the first 24 hours, clients avoid:
- Getting their eyebrows wet or rubbing them
- Applying any oils or cream on or around the eyebrow area
- Applying any brow makeup
- Enjoy any steamy activities such as a sauna or very hot showers or sweaty activities like hot yoga.
