Eyebrow lamination is one of the recent trends in female beauty, but what is it and why is it so fashionable? Let’s take a look at what you can expect from an eyebrow layering procedure and let’s decide if this popular style is the one you want to try.
What is eyebrow stratification?
Eyebrow lamination, sometimes referred to as “eyebrow permanent”, involves the treatment of eyebrows with semi-permanent styling products to obtain clean, smooth and shiny eyebrows. The finished look is similar to what you would get if you used transparent eyebrow gel or soap to lay your eyebrows in a defined shape. The individual hairs of the eyebrows are raised and straightened so that they can be easily brushed into the correct shape every day.
Eyebrow lamination is a fantastic way to style eyebrows without using eyebrow pencil or shadows to fill them. It provides a polished but natural look that can help the eyebrows look more lush, sharper and even. It is a popular treatment for women who want to save some time in their makeup regime by avoiding having to gel or soap their eyebrows every day.
What steps are involved in the stratification of eyebrows?
First, a cream is applied to the eyebrows, which lifts and smoothes the hairs. Then the eyebrows are brushed upwards so that they fall as neatly as possible in a vertical direction. A fixing solution is then applied to secure the positioning of the bristles. That’s all that’s in the procedure. Sometimes a nourishing oil is applied to the eyebrows to reduce dryness or skin irritation due to the use of chemicals.
There are a number of additional steps you can add to stratify your eyebrows for better results. If you have a completely new view of your eyebrows, you can combine several treatments to get your ideal look. Pinch or remove excess hairs to create a sharper arch on the eyebrows. Some hairs can be cut to create a clear line on the top of the eyebrows. You can also have the eyebrows tinted just before laminating to better define them.
How to care for my rolled eyebrows?
During the first 24 hours after the stratification of the eyebrows, it is important not to touch and wet the eyebrows. This could reduce the effectiveness of the procedure. You should also avoid a thick makeup around the eyebrows for 24 hours. It is important to avoid direct sunlight and sunbeds for 48 hours after the procedure, as this could damage the skin around the eyebrows, which was made sensitive by the laminating products.
It is recommended to apply a revitalizing and nourishing oil or serum to the eyebrows twice a day. This helps the skin and hair to stay hydrated, as the chemicals involved in lamination can deprive the skin of its natural moisture. Some serums can also help to prolong the results of the stratification or coloring of the eyebrows.
How long does the stratification of the eyebrows last?
Although the stratification of the eyebrows helps to manipulate the eyebrows in a brushed position, it does not firmly put them in place. You need to brush your eyebrows upwards with a coil brush every morning to get a full, fluffy finish, but no additional products are required.
The results of eyebrow lamination last from four to six weeks, but the longevity of the treatment depends on how well you take care of your eyebrows. Gradually, the hairs of the eyebrows will return to their natural state, after which it is necessary to repeat the treatment to maintain the appearance.
Is eyebrow layering better than micro blading?
Microblading is another popular beauty treatment for the face with eyebrows, but it is very different from lamination. With micro blading, thin needles are used to push a semi-permanent pigment into the skin of the eyebrow area. Fine lines are drawn on the skin to resemble the appearance of natural bristles. The eyebrows appear fuller and more defined, and the results are semi-permanent.
The results of micro blading last from one to three years, which is significantly longer than the stratification of the eyebrows. However, the procedure is also much more expensive and takes longer. Eyebrow lamination is one of the most affordable eyebrow beauty trends available and is ideal for those who don’t want the results to take too long.
