How to achieve a laminated brow for half the price.

Fluffy brows have been the main craze of 2020, with brow lamination being the most successful long-term approach in achieving these trendy editorial brows. In salon brow lamination involves restructuring and perming the brow hairs through using a chemical treatment, lasting four to six weeks. What you may not be aware of is the long term damage chemical solutions can have to your eyebrows. Needless to say, it can be costly to maintain.

This article covers the top four ways in which you can achieve this professional laminated eyebrow look for half the price. These are also the ultimate student friendly products being both cost effective and efficient, so your brows will always be looking ‘on fleek’.

There is a universal method used in applying all of these products which simply involves brushing the eyebrow hairs upwards with the formula to cover every eyebrow hair, before tailing off the ends to achieve a more natural look. We encourage Carbon readers to experiment with this, depending on how dramatic you prefer your eyebrows.
