Get supermodel brows like Gigi Hadid with DIY brow lamination

TURN your back on threading, waxing and micro-blading.

It’s time to embrace a wilder brow, and there’s a new treatment on the scene.


Brow lamination is basically a perm for your eyebrows that sets the hairs in place for a super-full, fluffy, brushed-up finish.

With promises to deliver feathery supermodel brows like those of Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and Gigi Hadid, bookings for brow lamination rose by 465 per cent on the beauty booking site Treatwell in 2019. And it was set to be the treatment of 2020.

However, when salons were previously forced to close due to coronavirus, brands brought out home treatment kits so we could create the fluffy look ourselves.

With in-salon lamination costing upwards of £45 and lasting for six to eight weeks, can DIY treatments really deliver the same results?

SHANNON LAWLOR tests B.Bare Brow Lamination Kit.

The aim

I HAVE been itching to get brow lamination since it first came on to my radar, but lockdown meant that my appointment was cancelled.

I already love the brushed-up brow look so I want this home treatment kit to deliver the same result that my everyday brow gel does – just without the hassle.

The process

I’M trying out the B.Bare Home Brow Lamination Kit, £88 (Bbare.com), which promises to keep brows full between salon appointments.

It costs substantially more than an in-salon treatment, but the kit claims to include ten applications.

It’s an easy-to-follow three-step process – apply a glue to set the hairs in place, then coat brows in a solution to soften the hairs, laminate them with cling film, and finish off with a fixing solution before laminating again.

The whole thing is simple enough but having to wrap your brows in cling film between each solution (yes, really) makes things a bit fiddly and the whole process takes 20 minutes.

The Verdict

AT first, I’m shocked by how drastic the results are and I’m a bit concerned that my brows look a little too wild.

Luckily though, my brows aren’t stuck that way. They feel tacky, meaning they can be easily reshaped.

I just have to brush them through with a spoolie first thing in the morning, and they stay that way all day.

On day four, I notice my brows are starting to lose their “hold” a little and by day five they’re basically back to normal. With only five days’ worth of results, it’s safe to say this kit doesn’t deliver salon results.

However, it is an effective top up between appointments and is a great option for those who want the results of lamination without the commitment.

I’m not sure if it is worth £88, but I loved my laminated brows so much, I’ve booked in for a salon appointment.
