Tired of spending hours trying to get your eyebrows to look just right? Well, look no further than brow lamination. This non-invasive beauty treatment will help you achieve a fuller, more defined brow shape that lasts for weeks. It's perfect for those who want to achieve that trendy "fluffy brow" look without having to spend hours filling them in every day.

But, as with any beauty treatment, there are a few misconceptions about brow lamination that might be holding you back from giving it a try. Ahead, we’re debunking the five most common myths about brow lamination, so you can book your appointment with confidence. 

Debunking the 5 Most Common Misconceptions About Brow Lamination


Misconception #1: Brow lamination is painful.

One of the biggest misconceptions about brow lamination is that it's a painful procedure. But fear not, because this couldn't be further from the truth! Brow lamination is a completely painless experience—as long as it's done by a properly trained brow technician. 

You may have heard horror stories of people getting chemical burns from the procedure. This usually happens when either an inexperienced technician leaves the solution on for too long, or if your skin is sensitive. So, make sure to book your appointments with a trusted technician and avoid tweezing, threading, or waxing your brows before your appointment. Steer clear of exfoliants like retinol and AHAs and BHAs for at least two weeks prior as well. And if you have a history of skin allergies, make sure to ask for a patch test beforehand. 

Misconception #2: Brow lamination can damage your brow hairs.

While it's true that overuse or repeating the process too often can lead to dryness and damage, getting your brows laminated every six weeks or so should be perfectly safe for your hairs.

Misconception #3: Brow lamination will make your brows stiff.

A third misconception is that after brow lamination, your eyebrows will be stiff and laminated in place forever. But, in reality, you can still move and style your brows to your liking! After the first 24 hours, you're actually encouraged to comb through your brows every morning to keep them looking their best. Plus, brow lamination makes your brow hairs softer and easier to manage, so you can shape them any way you like.

Misconception #4: You can't wear brow makeup after brow lamination.

Some people might think that after getting their brows laminated, they won't be able to wear brow makeup anymore. Brow lamination makes it easier to shape your brows and get them looking symmetrical, so you'll find that you need less brow makeup than before. But that doesn't mean you can't wear brow makeup! 

Misconception #5: People with sparse brows can’t get brow lamination.

Last but not least, some people may think that if they have sparse eyebrows, brow lamination isn't an option for them. But, this is actually not the case! Even people with sparse brows can benefit from brow lamination, as it can help to cover gaps in the brows and create the illusion of a fuller, more defined brow shape.
