Can you fix uneven laminated eyebrows?
Yes you can, however, you want to avoid doing this correction right away on a freshly laminated eyebrow. Clients sometimes have a stronger follicular direction on one brow or in sections of their eyebrows. If this is the case, the best thing to do is note this down on their client information cards, so when they come in for their next appointment you can adjust the processing times accordingly in those areas.
My client's brows did not laminate enough?
What is a Brow Lamination?
This is the process of placing a chemical solution on the eyebrow hairs that will soften the bonds in the hair for you to create a new shape. You will then set it in place with your step 2 solution. This product allows the hairs to have more flexibility to move them into a beautiful fluffy shape, assisting in covering any gaps in your eyebrows.
How long does it last?
A brow lamination can last anywhere from 6-8 weeks with the correct aftercare

Can I wax and tint in the same service?

Will a Brow Lamination cause hair loss?
No. If a brow lamination is done correctly this will not cause hair loss. Your eyebrows will shed naturally in cycles as this is the process of hair rejuvenation and healthy growth. Your hairs shed at certain stages and regrow as it needs to. To prevent excessive shedding caused by dry hair or lack of nutrients to the follicle ensure your client is using the correct aftercare to keep the hairs hydrated. Hair loss will only occur if you have over processed the brows. In this case keeping up with aftercare to encourage new healthy growth.
