Discover the power of perfectly sculpted brows. Whether you're considering brow lamination, brow tinting, or simply seeking answers about the world of brow care, you're in the right place. Read on to get all your questions answered.

Brow lamination is a cutting-edge beauty treatment designed to give your eyebrows a fuller, more defined appearance by repositioning the brow hairs. During the procedure, a special solution is applied to your eyebrows, which softens the hairs, making them more malleable. Your technician will then brush and set the hairs into your desired shape—whether you prefer a fluffy, straight, or tailored look. This creates a well-groomed, lifted effect that accentuates your natural features and lasts for up to 6-8 weeks

Brow tinting is primarily a color treatment. It involves using semi-permanent dye to enhance, shape, and define the color of your eyebrow hairs, making them more noticeable and providing a fuller appearance. On the other hand, brow lamination focuses on the texture and direction of the brow hairs. This treatment realigns and sets brow hairs in a desired shape, offering a brushed-up, well-groomed look. In essence, while brow tinting targets the color, brow lamination addresses the structure and alignment of the brows.

The longevity of the results can vary from person to person based on individual hair growth cycles and aftercare, but generally, you can expect your brow lamination to last between 6 to 8 weeks. During this period, your brows will maintain the sleek, well-groomed look achieved through the lamination process. To maximize the lifespan of your brow lamination, it's important to follow all aftercare guidelines provided by your Habitual Lash specialist.

Yes, there is a simple but important aftercare routine to follow after you've had brow lamination to ensure the longevity and health of your brows. For the first 24 to 48 hours post-treatment, it's crucial to keep your brows dry and avoid any moisture or steam to allow the setting solution to fully take effect. This means avoiding showers where your face will get wet, swimming, and strenuous workouts that cause sweating. After this initial period, we recommend brushing your brows gently every day to maintain their new shape. Additionally, using a nourishing brow serum can help keep the hairs healthy and conditioned. Refrain from using strong makeup removers on your brows for at least a week as they can strip the treatment. Following these aftercare tips will help you maintain those perfectly sculpted brows for up to 8 weeks.

A brow tint is a cosmetic procedure that involves applying a semi-permanent dye to the eyebrows to enhance, define, and accentuate their natural shape and color. Much like hair coloring, brow tinting changes the color of the brow hairs, adding depth and dimension, while making them appear fuller and more prominent. It's an ideal solution for those with light-colored or sparse brows who desire a bolder, more defined look without the daily use of makeup.

The duration of its results largely depends on individual factors like the rate of hair growth, skin type, and aftercare regimen. Typically, a brow tint can last between 3 to 6 weeks. However, exposure to sunlight, frequent face washing, and the use of oil-based skincare products can potentially cause the tint to fade faster. For sustained results, it's advised to follow aftercare recommendations and consider touch-ups when the color starts to fade.

Absolutely! Combining brow lamination and tinting is a popular choice among many clients seeking a complete brow transformation. By laminating your brows first, you achieve a sleek, groomed, and lifted appearance. Following it up with tinting adds depth, richness, and an enhanced color to your brows. Doing both treatments together ensures that your brows not only have the perfect shape but also a consistent, fuller color. This dual approach offers a more dramatic and lasting result, ensuring your brows stand out beautifully. 

Absolutely! Many clients with sensitive skin successfully undergo brow lamination or tinting. At Habitual Lash, we understand the unique needs of sensitive skin and utilize high-quality products formulated to be gentle. However, to ensure your comfort and safety, we always recommend doing a patch test at least 48 hours before your scheduled treatment. This allows us to determine how your skin will react to the products.

Maintaining your freshly treated brows at home is essential for long-lasting results. For the first 24 hours after your brow lamination or tint, avoid getting them wet to allow the treatment to set properly. After this period, it's a good idea to brush your brows gently every day to keep them in their desired shape. We also recommend applying a nourishing brow serum or light oil (like castor oil) a few times a week to keep the brow hairs conditioned and healthy. If you opt for a tint, try to avoid using harsh facial cleansers or exfoliants around the brow area, as these can fade the color more quickly. Remember, regular maintenance and gentle care can extend the life of your treatment, allowing you to enjoy your stunning brows for longer!

Our brow lamination process takes approximately 45 minutes to an hour, depending on the complexity of your brow shape and the desired look. Brow tinting is a quicker procedure, usually completed within 20 to 30 minutes. It's important to note that these times may vary slightly based on individual needs. However, we always aim to provide a relaxing, unrushed experience that allows for personalized, stunning results.

Preparation is key to getting the most out of your brow treatment at Habitual Lash. We recommend coming in with clean, makeup-free skin to ensure the best application of our brow products. If you regularly groom your brows, try to avoid tweezing, waxing, or threading for at least 48 hours prior to your appointment. This allows us to work with your natural brow shape and provide the most impactful transformation. If you have sensitive skin or are concerned about potential irritation, you can perform a patch test of the products to be used, usually 24-48 hours before the scheduled treatment.

Absolutely, you can wear makeup after undergoing our brow treatments; however, we recommend giving your brows a little breather for at least 24 hours post-treatment. This brief pause allows your brows to fully absorb the tint or set into their new laminated shape without interference from makeup products.

Brow lamination and tinting are versatile treatments designed for a wide range of individuals. Whether you have sparse brows that need a fuller appearance, unruly hairs that demand a tamed and refined look, or naturally light hairs seeking a dash of color for enhanced definition, these treatments cater to all. They're perfect for those seeking a polished, low-maintenance brow look without the daily rigmarole of makeup. From the busy professional to the makeup enthusiast, from the young adult wanting to define their look to the mature individual looking to rejuvenate their brow game, our brow services at Habitual Lash are tailored to meet diverse brow needs and beauty aspirations.
