If you have clients interested in receiving a lash lift and a brow lamination, the good news is it’s entirely possible to do both simultaneously. What a time saver, right?
Both procedures involve similar steps of applying a lifting solution, making combining these steps reasonably straightforward. However, it’s essential to ensure the brow lamination and lash supplies you use are tailor-made for each area.
Let’s look at some of the other considerations you’ll want to keep in mind when performing a lash lift and brow lamination simultaneously. But first, we’ll dive into what each procedure entails.
WHAT IS A LASH LIFT?
An eyelash lift is a semi-permanent method of curling and lengthening a person’s natural lashes to make them appear longer and fuller. Get ready to say goodbye to false eyelashes now!
A lash lift can create a cohesive, impactful look for people with lashes that stubbornly grow in different directions, grow more downward than upward, or are simply on the short side. A lash lift will last 6-8 weeks before your client needs a touch-up.
BENEFITS OF A LASH LIFT
Your client may need to realize the many benefits of a lash lift. Here are some of the advantages you can emphasize:
WHAT IS BROW LAMINATION?
Similar to a lash lift, a brow lamination lifts a person’s brow hairs to make them look fuller, plus helps you put unruly brow hairs back in the right place. Brow lamination fills gaps and creates the illusion of thick, luscious brows without using invasive techniques.
As a brow technician, a lamination allows you to create the perfect arch for your client’s face and reshape specific areas of the eyebrow. Also, like a lash lift, a brow lamination lasts 6-8 weeks and requires little to no maintenance after your client leaves the studio.
BENEFITS OF A BROW LAMINATION
Brow laminations offer advantages your client may be surprised to find out. Here are some of the benefits you can share with them:
HOW TO DO A LASH LIFT & BROW LAMINATION AT THE SAME TIME
Performing a lash lift and a brow lamination simultaneously can be very convenient for you and your client. Here's a general outline of how you can roll both procedures into the same appointment:
Begin by consulting with your client to understand their desired outcomes for their lashes and brows. Discuss their preferences regarding lift and curl intensity, brow shape, and any concerns or allergies. It’s common for clients to have lash lift questions, so now’s the time to answer them.
Cleanse your client's lashes and brows to remove any makeup, oils, or residue. This ensures a clean procedure surface and will help your products adhere better.
Lash Lift Procedure
Apply a gentle lifting solution to your client's lashes, carefully adhering them to the silicone lash lift rods or lash lift shields of your choice, then shape and curl them. Leave the lashes to process for the appropriate amount of time, typically around 10-15 minutes.
Brow Lamination Procedure
While the lash lift is processing, begin the brow lamination by applying a lifting solution and setting the solution to your client's brows. These will help straighten, shape, and put the brow hairs. Use a brow comb or brush to manipulate the hairs into the correct position.
As the brow lamination products process, you’ll monitor your client's lashes to ensure they’re lifting and curling how you want them to. You might have to adjust the processing time based on your client's natural lash texture.
Rinsing and Removal
Once both procedures have been processed, carefully remove the products from your client's lashes and brows using a gentle cleanser or water. Rinse away all residue to prevent any irritation.
Apply a nourishing serum or conditioner to both the lashes and brows to help hydrate and condition your client’s hair, promoting healthy growth and prolonging the effects of the treatments.
Style your client's lashes and brows using a lash comb and brow brush to ensure they are perfectly groomed and shaped. You might also offer additional services, such as lash or brow tinting, to enhance their overall look.
By carefully coordinating the timing and techniques for both procedures, you can effectively perform a lash lift and a brow lamination simultaneously, giving your client a whole new look in a single appointment!
