BROW LAMINATION

Frequently asked questions

What is Brow Lamination?


Brow Lamination aka "brow lift" is a natural keratin infusion for your eyebrows! Brow lamination works for most eyebrow shapes and styles, from full to sparse, so is ideal for anyone looking to improve the shape of their brows. The keratin compound used at Atelier Lash + Brows contains essential oils, vitamin B and minerals specifically designed to provide nourishment, anti-oxidants and hydration to each individual hair.

This treatment will straighten, add length & volume and set the brow hair in place to create a perfect shape!




How long does it last?


Following your treatment, the results should last for up to 6 weeks. Your stylist will provide aftercare advice, to help you maintain your fresh brows.




Is this painful?


Not at all. This is a very relaxing service. Always let us know if anything feels uncomfortable or irratating.




How long does the procedure take?


When brow lamination is incorporated into the Brow Xperience treatment, it should take roughly 50-55 minutes.




Does the Brow Lamination treatment involve adding in hairs?


Not at all - there’s no eyebrow extensions or permanent make up involved. The treatment uses entirely your own brow hair. It’s the eyebrow repositioning and shape correction that gives a fuller appearance.

How do you decide on the shape?


We use the golden ratio which will ensure the ultimate symmetry and shape. This is developed to conform to the “Phi” ratio and is calculated according to the morphology of the face and the golden mean, the number φ (1.618) and helps in mapping out facial contour by designing the shape that compliments all facial features. The Golden Ratio φ 1.618 also known as Phi is a proportion that appears in the patterns and proportions in every living form. Many key features of the human face can embody many golden ratios, leading to our perceptions of beauty.




What is the procedure?


+CONSULTATION

All of our treatments begin with a thorough consultation, so your stylist can establish your brow goals and work to achieve them.

+MAPPING THE BROWS

Now that we’ve set your hairs in their new position, you’ll need a new shape to match. We’ll map out the shape and create it with hair removal techniques, which may include a combination of waxing and tweezing.

+RELAXING THE HAIR

We’ll start the process by relaxing the hair: breaking down the hair structure to make it straighter and easier to manipulate.

+SETTING THE SHAPE

Next, we’ll brush them into your desired position before applying a treatment lotion that sets the brows in place.

+BROW TINTING/HENNA

Your stylist will then mix a custom color tint or henna for your brows.

+NOURISHING

Those finishing touches make your fresh brows feel even fresher, even if it’s just adding a hair stroke or two.
