Does Brow lamination cause damage to brow hair?
LACQUER has been custom formulated to be gentle on the hair and skin. When performed correctly by a trained professional, brow lamination does not cause any long term damage to the brow hair. Brow lamination works by restructuring the brow hair’s disulphide bonds - essentially using the same science and basic principles of a perm.

What is the brow lamination process like?
Brow lamination is basically a perm for your brows, as it gives them a set, uniform shape for an extended period of time. Instead of curls, a setting lotion helps brow hair stay brushed up and lifted upward for about six weeks. If you're lucky, you can wake up [every morning] with bolder, fuller brows in a beautiful shape for up to two months!
How does the magic happen?
Your brows will first be cleansed, then a perming solution will be applied and covered with plastic film. After 8-10 minutes, depending on your hair type, it will be removed and your brows will be brushed into the desired shape. A setting lotion will then be applied. After the allotted time, we'll remove the lotion and tint your brows, if desired. to conclude your service, we'll apply a nourishing treatment, to hydrate and laminate the hairs.
