Brow lift or brow lamination is the new trend in 2020! It is so new that we are surprised by all the questions such as "what is browlift?" "How long does browlift last?" "How to do a browlift?" "Can you do a browlift at home?" etc
Here are all the answers! :)

My eyebrows before and after brow lift. I'm addicted now!
Brow lift is also called brow lamination and there are also brands that have their own names e.g. Yumibrows etc. Dear child has many names, but it is basically the same thing that differs is the brand and the exact products used during the treatment.
Both lash lift and brow lift is really as simple as a permanent - when I first tested the treatment several years ago it was called "eyelash permanent". So you reshape the strands the way you want them, just like you do to get your hair curly!
In the hair it becomes curly thanks to rolling up the hair on round strands, but on the eyelashes you make a nice bend and on the eyebrows you shape the strands straight up - to then be able to comb them in whichever direction you want, both up and down or and the pages.
In other words: Brow lift means that you can brush the straws however you want - they do not have to lie up and it can also happen that they lie down when you sleep on them and have to be brushed up in the morning :)
On the one hand, it is a trend brow lift, it is nice that the straws are brushed upwards. But I who am more "nerd" in the area would say that there are LOTS of reasons to do brow lift:
If you have sparse with straws, the brows can become fuller thanks to the fact that you can brush the straws in different directions so that they do not lie together / on top of each other.
For example this:
Some people have a lot of straw but still do not get the shape you want because the straw is not in the direction you want. For example. in the front edge it is common for the straws to lie completely to the side = sparse in the front.
For example this:
It is also common for them to grow straight down = sparse at the highest point.
For example this:
The customer has an old one tattoo below but you really see the difference in the straws at the top anyway!
Sparse brows / gaps in the brows
You do not have to brush the straws straight up but you can brush them over sparse areas.
For example this:
With brow lift you can, as it were, do a "comb over" to fill in sparse parts. Á la Donald trump firmly on the brow;)
Welcoming eyebrows that stay in place
Many also have very obsessive eyebrows, then brow lift helps to make the straws lie so nicely combed all day.
For example this:
Do you see in the model that her straws were very scattered before?
It varies, ranging from 4 to 8 weeks!
What is so individual about brow lift is that it grows away and the eyebrows grow so differently fast on different people. Lash lift on eyelashes lasts a little longer than brow lift I would say as the cycle of the lashes is usually longer than the brow.
Some people book a brow pick every 3 weeks and for such a person, the brow lift is probably completely gone in 4 weeks. While some others book every other month and then the brow lift can sit for up to 8 weeks as well.
In addition, it disappears over and over again. In the beginning they can stay up without you touching them, then you need to brush them in the morning to keep them in place and in the end it becomes harder and harder to brush them as you wish.
I myself have now done brow lift three times and the first time it lasted 1.5 months and the second time I used brow serum and then I did it again after exactly 1 month because the brows grew faster.
- You stick the straws up with a skin glue. Here you look pretty crazy for the straws so long when they are glued upwards and are licked against the skin.
- The first permanent liquid is applied. The duration of action varies depending on hair quality.
- A second permanent liquid is applied. Same duration of action as the first liquid.
Everything is washed away and then it's done! Most people also want to color the eyebrows afterwards, but be careful with the eyebrow color then because the straws absorb more color than usual.
This is how crazy it can look during gluing :)
Here is the result for that customer:
Quite frankly, it is possible to do the treatment on everyone but everyone need not brow lift. Some have naturally easy-combed straws that stay in place and can be combed in any direction you want! And then brow lift is an unnecessary treatment.
Browlift is mainly a treatment for you with straws that grow downwards, obsessive straws and / or sparse eyebrows where you can not do a "comb over" over voids and sparse parts without reshaping the straws.
The question is mainly why you want to remove browlift. Do you just think that you fit better without a browlift? Or have you done a failed browlift / brow lamination?
With a successful browlift, it does not need to be removed even if you regret it. You can brush the straws as you like anyway. When I do a browlift on myself, I can still brush the straws all the way down even if I do wants the.
If, on the other hand, you have had a failed brow lift, the situation may be different:
Have your brow hairs stuck in a direction you do not want? For example. there are practitioners who make brow lift very sprawling and unnatural. If the practitioner also had too long an action time, the straws can become so hard that they cannot be brushed as you want.
You can then redo the treatment if your brow hairs are still of good quality. Then you glue the straws as you want them and have a very short duration of action, then they should lie down nicely again without it tearing too much on the straws.
However, have you gotten rough ruffled / worn brows from brow lift and for that reason not got a good result? Then I do not recommend redoing the treatment. You then need to wait the time for it to disappear naturally and use caring products instead.
For example. is Refectocil Styling Gel (adlink) good! It cares for the straws while you can comb them nicely. Feel free to use a greasy cream as well to "weigh down" the straws a bit.
All treatments have a certain amount of wear on the hairs, the biggest difference is that you only do the treatment once on the eyebrows - because the next time you come you have completely new eyebrow hairs. Unlike the hair on the head where the quality for people with long hair should last for several years.
The aftercare I usually do is to brush in daily Refectocil Styling Gel (adlink) with vitamin E and D-Panthenol. Brilliant / transparent mascara / caring conditioner in the same product!
Ps. how nice is it not with matte red lips? The color of this image has been deleted, but can e.g. recommend Pixi MatteLast Liquid Lip (adlink) in the shade Caliente Coral, so heavenly nice!
It is possible to do a brow lift at home and nowadays there are home kits to buy. I have not tested this kit myself with Refectocil which is a great brand (!) Has released RefectoCil Brow Lamination Kit (adlink) which would have been my first choice to test if I would buy a home kit :)
If you are used to making your eyebrows and lashes, browlift / brow lamination should not be a problem. If, on the other hand, you do not even pick or dye your eyebrows yourself, you should be more careful. If you want to do a brow lift at home, you can do as I wrote here, thinking about being careful with the duration of action only.
So my tips for doing it at home is to take it easy and not stress and read my entire post first. :)
Read especially section 4 in this post to do brow lift at home. Then I have outlined all the steps and how to do it. Click here to jump to that section.
Browlift or Brow Lamination?
It does not matter which of the treatments you choose, brow lamination and browlift are the same thing. However, browlift can also mean a surgical lift of the eyebrows, it is not to be confused with browlift where you only lift the straws. :)
I have also made a post about that pick different eyebrow shapes, so if you are interested in eyebrows I can highly recommend it too! :)
