What are Dual Lash Lift & Brow Lamination Systems?

Some things are simply meant to be paired together - champagne and caviar, peaches and cream, peanut butter and jelly, lash lift and brow lamination. Lash and brow laminations are two low maintenance treatments that make the perfect combination for accentuating the natural beauty. It transforms the eye and brow features to a whole new level, creating that perfect, polished look that makes the morning routine a breeze. Of course, there is the option of getting them done separately, but combining both services into one session is starting to become the norm, allowing the technician to maximize their time and profits.

What is a lash lift?

Lash lifts, also known as lash perms, essentially lift the natural lashes from the roots to the tips creating a dramatic or soft curl. The procedure must be performed by a trained professional, and requires the use of a silicone shield/rod, along with a chemical based lifting lotion that alters the shape of the lashes. Tinting may also be included in the service which involves dyeing the lashes to a darker colour, creating more boldness and depth in the eyes. The results typically last for 6-8 weeks.

What is brow lamination?

Brow lamination takes the same idea of a lash lift but for the eyebrows. Instead of producing a curl, it chemically straightens the brow hairs, while brushing them upwards, instantly creating that lifted appearance of fuller and fluffier brows. With the help of the lifting solution, it can reposition the eyebrows, smoothing out curly or unruly hairs and keeping them in place for up to 8 weeks. Tinting and shaping may also be included in the service for an even bolder and finished look.

Why do customers love lash lifts & brow laminations?

Both treatments can be time efficient, shortening the daily beauty routine. Since the lashes are already lifted, your customers have the option of wearing mascara or eye makeup to further enhance the look. For the brows, they can simply comb them and/or set them in place with a brow styling gel. Though there is still some maintenance and care required, the time it takes is still much less compared to doing a full makeup routine.

What are dual lamination systems?

As the demand increases for getting both treatments done at the same go, you as a technician can streamline the process for an even more convenient experience, saving both time and money.

Manufacturers of lash and brow supplies have recognized this simultaneous need, and some brands offer a dual system; a 2-in-1 solution capable of performing lash lift and brow lamination using the same product.

However, not all systems are created like this, where some are strictly only for lashes, or brows, and not meant to be used for both. This is due to the ingredients contained in the products; lash lift solutions are not meant to touch the skin, so they are not safe to use on brows that must touch the skin. In this case, lash lift solutions are typically stronger but are still safe to use around the eye area.

How do these systems change the shape of lashes and brows?

All these systems contain a step one, two and three lotion. The step one lotions contain a chemical based ingredient called ammonium thioglycolate or cysteamine. Either one of these two ingredients are responsible for penetrating the hair, breaking down the disulfide bonds and allowing the hairs to be reshaped. It is then neutralized by the step two lotion, also known as the setting/fixing lotion, that closes the cuticle and retains the new shape of the hairs. Finally, step three contains ultra hydrating ingredients to minimize dehydrating the hair from the chemicals in step one.

Who are dual systems for?

They are ideal for professionals who are booked with clients requesting lash and brow lifts at the same time, providing an economical solution. This can not only maximize time, but it can maximize the usage of the product by shortening the period after opening as you continually use up the lotions. Whereas, if using a separate system for lash and brow lamination, one solution may stay open longer depending on the frequency of bookings, and possibly lowering the efficacy. When it comes to these systems, the fresher they are the better.

For clients, these systems also help to reduce their in-salon time when both laminations are done separately. The results provide an instant lift and transformation with minimal invasiveness, and offer a low maintenance solution. Brow lamination is the perfect answer for achieving fuller brows, while at the same time, a lash lift will take the enhancement up a notch with elongated looking lashes.

It is good to keep in mind that when combining these two services, the speed of application is key in preventing possible over processing. Working simultaneously on both lashes and brows is recommended for more experienced technicians that are comfortable and confident in their application. Many of the dual systems are also more rapid acting, further highlighting the importance of your speed in application.
