Can we all just take a collective moment of gratitude for the fact that pencil-thin eyebrows aren't a thing anymore? Decades from now they might look back at the current decade and laugh at our boyish brows, BUT in the meantime, we're here for it.
Thick eyebrows and Instagram are like two peas in a pod. So how did this happen and where does brow lamination come into play? Stick with us kid, we'll walk you through it.
What is Brow Lamination?
Think of brow lamination like a magic formula to semi-permanently put each of your brow hairs in prime position. Brow lamination has been dubbed as "microblading without the needling." Each individual hair is given attention without actually being drawn on.
Using a special solution, this pain-free treatment forms your natural brows into a better shape with more definition. A brow lamination treatment starts with a lifting cream that softens the hairs, allowing the brow artist to lead them in new directions. Next, a neutralising cream is used to help reconstitute the hair structure and set the brows in their perfect new position.
Who made Brow Lamination trendy on Instagram?
It's pretty widely agreed upon in the industry that Cara Delevingne can take the credit for making bold eyebrows a thing. However, she doesn't get the credit for brow lamination trend. One of the pioneers of brow lamination, The London Brow Company seems to have started the Instagram takeover.
