How do I go about filling the ends of my brows in but still making them look natural, I don't know if it’s from years of getting them tweezed and waxed but the hair never seems to grow there! Does it sound familiar to you? Without your natural brow as a guide, it can be a little challenging to know where to end the brow. With this technique, your eyebrow tails will be raised a little and in some individual cases lengthened. This creates a natural, non-surgical brow lift. Generally, the tail of an eyebrow should always be higher than the bulb or at least at the same level. This will open up the eye area and nicely frame the face of a person.

Why extending your eyebrow tails is not always a good option? Overextending the tail of your brows can create a droopy effect, drawing your face down and making you look sad. Your eyebrows naturally stop at a place that lifts your face up and out, which is what you want to maintain. Although, we can work around your natural shape and give it some lift in the tails.


To measure where the tail of your brow needs to end, simply place a brow pencil diagonally at your nostrils and line it up with the side of your eye. Where the pencil hits your brow bone is where the end of your eyebrow should end (or can be extended to) without it looking fake. To achieve a more natural look we map from the middle part of the ear to the eyebrow arch, for lifting effect mapping needs to start from the highest part of the ear.

You may have noticed pictures of full, slicked-up brows with a high-shine finish taking over Instagram. If you have trouble getting your eyebrows to stay brushed into place, brow lamination is for you! Brow lamination is essentially a brow perm that sets your hairs in place.

The brow lamination process involves a few steps. A technician brushes on a brow adhesive to secure the hairs in an upward direction. Then, applies a coat with a softening lotion, which relaxes the hair cuticle. While brows are malleable, the technician shapes them into your desired style. Next, the technician puts a neutralizer that sets the hairs into the new position. Neutralizer breaks down the disulfide bonds that cause your hair to hold its shape, then reform new bonds. This way also lash lifts, keratin treatments, and other hair perms work. Finally, they apply a nourishing treatment.

Brow lamination takes about 30-45 minutes. You need to wait 48 hours before letting your brows get wet. Results can last six to eight weeks. Since the treatment involves shaping your natural hair rather than coloring your skin, it's best suited for people who already have full eyebrows.
