Posted on Feb 12,2024 By Dr. Y Anthony Nakamura

Fashions always come and go with the seasons. And, as you know, at each turn, you’re faced with the dilemma of how your eyebrows should frame your most flattering features. Whether it’s a natural look you’re after or a hint of bold color that transforms the way you feel, you’ll encounter more than one option for taking your brow aesthetics to a new level. In this post, we’ll investigate a few key differences between brow lamination and tinting and how you can use them to create a personal brow aesthetic that fits your individual style. Here’s what to know about our brow options here at Accent On You.

What is brow lamination?

If you’re tired of fussing over your eyebrows every morning, you’re hardly alone. Fortunately, achieving a natural but well-defined eyebrow look with lamination is simple. But how do you know if brow lamination is right for you?

Brow lamination is a semi-permanent treatment that reshapes and tames your unruly brow hairs while giving them a fuller, thicker appearance. It’s a popular option at our Arlington med spa and is similar to the keratin treatment you might find in a salon. The procedure begins with cleansing and shaping the brows before laminating them with a keratin solution. This helps to straighten individual hairs, adding both volume and texture. The brow technician then applies the keratin solution to your brows before introducing a wax to give your brows an even, neat shape. To finish the procedure, your brows are finally dried and combed into place.

Brow lamination is a semi-permanent treatment, and the results can last anywhere from six to eight weeks. The only real downside is the cost is usually higher than brow tinting. The treatment can last longer, however. To extend this look, most eyebrow technicians recommend keeping the area moisturized with a brow-specific oil.

What is brow tinting?

Like brown lamination, brow tinting is a semi-permanent process. It uses dye to enhance your natural brow color, shaping a bolder, fuller, and more defined brow that lasts up to six weeks.

The brow-tinting process is relatively simple. Your brow technician will start by shaping and coloring your brows once you identify which areas you’d prefer to enhance. After taking a few simple measurements, the technician applies an individualized blend of dyes mixed according to your hair type and color. They’ll then gently apply the mixture to your brows, leaving it for 8-10 minutes before removing it with a clean, damp cloth.

Among the main advantages of brow tinting is that it makes your brows look natural and full. Tinting may not last as long as laminating. But it’s not quite as expensive, and this method still gives your brows the fuller look you’re after. Brow tinting simplifies the task of filling in and thinning your brows every morning. The result is a natural, defined, and beautiful-looking eyebrow you can be proud to show the world.
