For those of you who don’t have the kit, go ahead and purchase it. You can easily get it online and right now, Nicky Lashes is offering it at a discount. Once you have bought it, check out our A Complete Guide on How to Lash Lift At Home blog to know the basics of lash lifting. It will help you fill in the blanks in this blog because a lash lift and eyebrow lamination follow the same process, except for a few different starting steps.

What Is Brow Lamination?

Brow lamination was first done in Russia. It was a beauty technique that allowed ladies to position every strand of their eyebrow hair in a way to give them fluffy, full, and on-point brows. Back then, the eyebrow hair was brushed with a cream, which softened the pores and opened them so that the hair could be easily shaped. Next followed a couple of more steps for structuring the eyebrows, which helped achieve the desired shape. 

If you have disorderly bushy eyebrows that need to be tamed and secured into place, then this brow lamination kit is for you. If you have thinning eyebrows with gaps and need to reposition them so that they look fuller, use this kit even then. It’s the solution to all your brow problems.

We will first tell you how to laminate your brows and then, if you are in the mood for it, you can do an eyebrow tint too. Don’t forget to take your eyebrow lamination before and after pictures so that you can see the difference in your eyebrows clearly.

Brow Lamination Process

1. Nourish Your Brows

Apply a small amount of castor oil or aloe Vera gel on your eyebrows. Gently rub it in and then wipe off the excess with a tissue paper.

2. Trim and Tweeze

Use an eyebrow comb to sort out the hair and then trim as desired. Pluck the rogue strands until the eyebrow has taken shape. Do the same for the other eyebrow. It can be a little difficult to get matching shapes so draw an outline with a brow pencil so that you know where to pluck from.

3. Apply the Cleanser

To remove any oily residue, clean the eyebrow and the surrounding skin with the cleanser from the brow lamination kit. Make sure the area is completely dry.

4. Apply the Adhesive

Place a good amount of adhesive on the eyebrow and use a stick to spread it evenly. Move the stick in an upward motion so that the hair is standing straight. Let the adhesive sit for 30 seconds.

5. Comb the Hair

Use the eyebrow comb to shape the eyebrow. Make sure that each strand is stuck down. Wait for 30 seconds to let the adhesive settle.

Note: If you have thick eyebrows, then apply a little more adhesive in this step. 

6.Apply the Perm Lotion

Unlike applying the perm lotion only on the lower lashes, here you will have difficulty with the eyebrows because you have to touch up only the roots. Start at the bottom from one end and then make your way to the other. Cover the eyebrows with a cling film and gently press-stretch from both ends to make sure that the lotion enters the follicles. Wait for 12 to 15 minutes and then remove the cling film slowly.

7. Apply the Fix Lotion

Remove the perm lotion with a cotton bud and then repeat step #6 with the fix lotion. Cover the eyebrows with a cling film and wait for 8 minutes.

8. Clean the Eyebrows

Your eyebrows have now been fluffed and it’s time to clean them. Use the cleanser from the brow lamination kit and thoroughly clean the hair with a cotton bud. 

9. Apply Nourishing Lotion

Apply nourishing lotion on your brows and comb the hair. You will see that the hair moves and settles easily when the comb is swept through. This is all because of the perm and fix lotions that give the hair a soft touch but a firm look. Repeat steps 1 to 7 on the other eye. 

10. Your Eyebrows Are Ready to Take on the World

They have been tamed and are serving their purpose well… which is to encase your eyes so that there’s a beautiful symmetry to your face. So, flaunt them and add in a few arches for good measure.

With the lamination done, now it’s time for the eyebrow tint

How to Tint Your Eyebrows

When you visit a salon, it takes about 2 minutes and $15 to tint your eyebrows. While this isn’t much but if you could save on this, would you? Just get a tint that matches your hair color and you can get this done at home. Here’s how:

11. Apply the Tint

Apply Vaseline on the skin around your eyebrow. This will stop the tint from staining your skin. 

Apply the tint on your eyebrows and leave it for 3 minutes. Clean the tint off with a cotton bud and comb the hair to make sure that you touched every strand. Do the same on the other eyebrow.

12. Apply Nourishing Oil

Use a cotton bud to apply the nourishing oil on your eyebrows. Let it soak in for 8 to 10 minutes and remove the excess with a cotton bud. 

Note: If you feel that your eyebrows look darker than your head hair then don’t worry because the hard color will fade away after three washes.

And we are done! Aren’t you glad that you bought that lash lift kit? It saved you a lot of money and a salon trip. You got your eyebrow lamination and tint in one sitting, in just an hour.
