Beauty trend: Brow lamination: This is how eyebrow lifting works at home

In the past, the thinner the better. In the 1930s, eyebrows were shaved off and then repainted with a fine pencil. Nowadays the opposite is in vogue. The British model Cara Delevingne showed the way: She was one of the first to attract attention with her hair over her eyes. Her broad, bushy eyebrows became her trademark. Many people now pay a lot of money to get such full eyebrows. A brow lamination with plucking, lifting and coloring costs up to 100 euros in the cosmetic studio. Do-it-yourself kits can save a lot of money.

Fine, thin hairs that would otherwise be lost in the middle of the eyebrows are made visible with the help of an eyebrow lift. The entire brow is brushed upwards and fixed. Chemical substances help with this – similar to a perm. Semi-permanent shaping fills small gaps and shapes the brows.

Here are instructions:

The lamination technique is particularly suitable for people with stubborn eyebrows. Or brows that grow in all directions. This gives people with light eyebrows a more expressive look. Sparse eyebrows are beautified by lamination. So they naturally appear voluminous.

Brow lamination involves working with various chemical liquids. Therefore, users should handle it with extreme caution. Contact with eyes should be avoided at all costs. It is also possible that allergies to the chemical substances can be triggered. You should find out beforehand. Otherwise, strong reactions may occur.

The exposure time of the substance should also be strictly adhered to. Otherwise, severe damage to the hair structure can occur with subsequent hair loss.

The eyebrows must not come into contact with water after lamination. If possible, the face or eyebrow area must not be washed for 24 hours. After two days, it is recommended to use a hair conditioner. Simply brush a conditioner into your eyebrows and leave it on for two minutes. This means the hair stays straight longer. The hair should be combed daily in the direction of growth and only when wet. Then just let it air dry.

If you don't want to dye your brows, you can use a fine eyebrow pencil. Just paint little hairs between a few real ones. This fills small gaps and gives the eyebrow a darker shade.
