WHAT IS A LASH LIFT?
Our lash lift and brow lamination treatments have become increasingly popular. Both having a similar effect to a hair perm - a lash lift is meant to lengthen, curl, and thicken your lashes while a lamination is meant to enhance your brows and give them a thicker appearance.
As more of our clients have been booking these beauty treatments, we’ve seen an influx in questions regarding best practices to assure your treatment lasts as long as possible. We’re providing answers to some of our most frequently asked questions below.
WHAT IS A BROW LAMINATION
Eyebrow lamination is the latest beauty secret that will thicken and enhance your natural brows. Similar to the idea of a lash lift, brow lamination involves the application of a setting lotion that gives the brow hair a semi permanent "brushed up" and lifted look. Whether you have thin, thick, or over plucked eyebrows, brow laminating is the perfect solution to give you the everyday look you want, without effort.
HOW TO PREP FOR A BROW LAMINATION?
Prior to your brow lamination appointment, we recommend the following: Avoid using exfoliants, retinoids, or AHAs on your face for one to two weeks before your brow lamination Avoid tweezing at least one week prior to your appointment (if you're interested, we do offer the option to add on a brow wax to your lamination appointment) Please come to your appointment without any makeup on your face
BROW LAMINATION AFTER CARE:
BROW LAMINATION "DON'TS" IN THE FIRST 24 HOURS AFTER TREATMENT.
• Don't get your eyebrows wet (avoid the shower & bath)
• Don't go into a sauna
• Don't use oil based products
• Don't apply heavy creams, makeup, or makeup remover to your brows
• Don't sleep directly on your brows (we know, easier said than done for our stomach sleepers)
HOW LONG DOES A BROW LAMINATION LAST?
A brow lamination will last about 6 weeks (again, depending on aftercare). Be sure to follow the "Don'ts" mentioned above in the first 24 hours following your treatment for longevity. In the 48 hours following your treatment, you can apply a hydrating balm or a castor oil to your brows daily. We also recommend brushing your brows in an upright/styled position anytime following a shower (or after getting your brows wet) to help keep their new shape.
WHY CAN'T I GET MY BROWS WET AFTER A LAMINATION?
Similar to a lash lift, keeping your brows dry in the 24 hours following your lamination treatment is very important. During the lamination process, we use an assortment of creams as well as a permanent gel to relax and shape your brows. If you get your eyebrows wet too soon after we finish applying these products, your brows do not have a chance to set with their new shape.
