Laminating the brows is a cosmetic procedure involving the usage of a particular glue to attach synthetic (or organic) brows to the corresponding part of one’s face. The procedure is done by an aesthetician or dermatologist and can be done in-office or at home. It can be used for many purposes, such as covering scars, smoothing wrinkles, and filling in sparse areas. Besides, it has been seen as a way to make people look more attractive and youthful.
This procedure has become one of the most sought-after procedures for women. Besides, brow lamination is becoming more popular because it provides an instant result and can be done at home with minimal downtime.
Types of Procedures
The eyebrow industry has been growing steadily since its inception in the early 2000s, with an estimated annual growth rate of 8%. As such, the industry is expected to grow at a CAGR of 8.2% from 2018 to 2022. This is due to the increasing demand for beauty products and services in general and the growing popularity of social media platforms.
So, here are three types of such procedures:
- Brow Tinting
A tinted brow gel is applied to the eyebrows and then shaped with an eyebrow brush in brow tinting. Meanwhile, you can customise the colour by mixing different shades.
Brow tinting is usually done to make eyebrows darker, more defined, or change their shape. And the benefits of brow tinting include achieving goals such as:
- Younger and more attractive appearance.
- Professional and polished outlook.
- Celebrity-level appearance maintenance.
- Brow Shaping
This involves trimming or shaving off excess hair from the eyebrows. The shape can be customised by using an eyebrow pencil or an eyebrow brush to draw on new lines and shapes.
Brow shaping reshapes the brows to make them look more natural and attractive. Furthermore, it is a popular procedure among women who want to change their appearance.
Benefits of brow shaping include achieving goals such as enhanced self-confidence, getting rid of unwanted facial hair, achieving the perfect arch, achieving the desired shape, minimising signs of aging, etc.
Brow shaping may be done in three ways:
1) With wax,
2) With threading, or
3) With an electric hair removal device.
Cosmetic surgeons commonly use a combination of these methods. Besides, brow shaping is typically done in the same appointment as hair removal and skin tightening and moisturising treatment.
- Brow Tattooing
This brow lamination procedure involves individually tattooing hair strands on the eyebrows with ink, then shaping them with an eyebrow brush or tweezers before being wiped away. Before any of the above methods are applied, the eyebrows should always be clean and free from oils, waxes or other substances. A scrubbing sponge is then used to remove excess oils and dirt from the area before the first application begins.
Brow tattooing is a popular trend among celebrities and social media influencers. And the benefits of brow tattooing:
- It can be done in minutes and lasts for up to six months.
- It can be done on any part of the face, including the lips, cheeks, chin, and forehead.
- It can be used as an alternative to makeup or to enhance natural beauty.
The cosmetic procedures that enhance eyebrows are a timeless beauty trend. And this is because brows are the frame for the face, and they can be shaped in many ways to suit one’s needs and preferences.
