INSTANT BROW LIFT & TINT

BROW LAMINATION & TINT

CLEANSE

PURPOSE

Cleansing removes any dirt, oil, or makeup that may be present on the skin and brows. Any impurities can create a barrier and prevent the lotions from penetrating the hairs, resulting in a poor brow lamination.

WHAT YOU'LL NEED

Cleansing Water

A gentle rinse-free cleanser that removes dirt, debris and oil from the skin and brows.

Cotton Rounds

Disposable cotton rounds for wiping.


STEP-BY-STEP

Step 1. Dispense two pumps of the Cleansing Water into a cotton round. 


Step 2. Wipe the brow area a minimum of 3 times to ensure that all make up and residue is removed. Continue to wipe if necessary.

PREP x PROTECT

PURPOSE

A brow lamination is a chemical procedure that can dehydrate, weaken and damage the hairs —providing the brows with nourishing and strengthening agents before the chemical procedure will minimize the negative effects of a brow lamination.

WHAT YOU'LL NEED

Prep x Protect

A cocktail consisting of powerful amino acids, antioxidants, proteins and vitamins that instantly strengthen, moisturize and increase the elasticity of the hairs, which prevents damage and breakage during the brow lamination chemical procedure.

Applicator Wand

The applicator wand has an absorbent head that soaks up the product so hairs can be evenly coated.


STEP-BY-STEP

Step 1. Dispense two drops of Prep x Protect onto one applicator wand. 


Step 2. Thoroughly work the product between all the hairs by brushing it back and forth.. Ensure to coat each and every hair with Prep x Protect so the amino acids, antioxidants, proteins and vitamins can penetrate further into the lash during the brow lamination process.

LIFT

PURPOSE

Disulfide bonds are chemical bonds that form between two sulfur atoms. During a brow lamination procedure, the disulfide bonds in the brows are broken by the lift lotion so the hairs becomes soft and flexible and can be styled into the desired direction and shape. Once it has been shaped, the disfulfide bonds are reformed so the hairs are easier to style.

LIFT LOTION

The lift lotion is an active lotion that breaks the disulfide bonds in the brows. To successfully reshape the brows, 50% of the disulfide bonds must be broken and reformed. If less than 50% of the disulfide bonds are broken and reformed, there won't be a significant change in the hairs shape. 


Underprocessing the brows will result in an underwhelming result, as not enough disulfide bonds were broken. The hairs won't be softened enough to be styled into a sleek and laminated look. Overproessing the brows will result in damaged brows, as too many disulfide bonds were broken. About 10% of disulfide bonds do not reform again, so overproessing the brows can result in the fibres appearing shrivelled up and kinky. If brows are overprocessed, there is nothing that can be done to fix it. The brows must be grown out.


The lift lotion starts penetrating the hairs and breaking down the disulfide bonds in the hairs as soon as it comes into contact with it. It's important to work very quickly when applying the lift lotion to ensure that all the hairs are processed for the perfect amount of time. We recommend using a separate timer for each brow, and to start the timer as soon as the lift lotion touches the hairs.

Processing Time Guideline

3 Minutes for Fine Hair

4 Minutes for Medium Hair

5 Minutes for Coarse Hair

6-7 Minutes for Very Coarse Hair

The processing time is only a guideline. You'll need to check on the hairs every 1-2 minutes to determine when the hairs are fully processed. When the hairs are done processing, they will be soft, silky and lay flat onto the skin - you'll be able to brush the hairs into any direction and it will stay in place. This fail-proof method determines if enough disulfide bonds have been broken.


At times, you may notice that some of the client's hairs have lightened after processing the brows with lift lotion. This is due to the decreased melanin in the hair. Melanin is responsible for the brown-black pigment in hair and skin. More melanin equates to a darker appearance of skin and hair. During a brow lamination, the alkaline product can reduce the amount of melanin in the lashes - this does not represent sufficient processing of hairs with lift lotion, yet simply something that could occur along the way. If hairs appear lighter, you may add tint to the set lotion in the next step. 

WHAT YOU'LL NEED

Lift Lotion

A specially formulated lift lotion that can quickly penetrate and break the disulphide bonds in the hairs, so they can be restructured. It's infused with protein, as well as hydrating and moisturizing ingredients so they can penetrate deep into the hairs during the lamination process.

Microbrush and Applicator Wand

Applicator wands have a large surface area so the lift lotion can easily be applied and removed.

Brow Wrap

The brow wrap is a disposable plastic wrap that is used to cover the brows when the lift lotion is processing them. This helps trap the body heat to help the lift lotion process quicker.


LIFT LOTION APPLICATION STEP-BY-STEP

Step 1. Dispense  lift lotion into a product ring.


Step 2. Starting from the front of the brow, quickly apply and work the lift lotion throughout the brow and between all the layers of the hair. Ensure that each hair is coated with the lift lotion. Start the timer as soon as the lift lotion touches the hairs.


Step 3. Once all the hairs are coated, apply a piece of brow wrap on top to trap body heat to help the lift lotion process quicker.


Step 4. Repeat on the other brow. Start the timer as soon as the lift lotion touches the hairs.


Step 5. Check on the brows every 1-2 minutes to see if they're done processing. Semi-process brows will be a little flexible and silky. Fully processed brows will be very flexible, soft, silky and will lay flat onto the skin.

CHECKING THE BROW

Always check the brow hairs every 1-2 minutes to determine if they have been processed enough (sufficient disulfide bonds have been broken). Remember that the lift lotion breaks the disulfide bonds to soften the hairs. If the brows were processed long enough, the hairs should be very soft, flexible and lay flat onto the skin. Although the suggested processing time is relatively accurate, some hairs may need longer processing or even less processing to become soft and flexible.

Processing Time Guideline

3 Minutes for Fine Hairs

4 Minutes for Medium Hairs

5 Minutes for Coarse Hairs

6-7 Minutes for Very Coarse Hairs


Brow Check

Semi-Processed Hairs are a little soft and silky

Fully Processed Hairs are soft, silky and lays flat onto the skin

Step 1. Use an applicator to brush the hairs into the desired direction.


Step 2. If the hairs are a little soft and silky but still stick up, it indicates that the hairs are semi-processed only and need to be processed for longer. Continue to process and check every 30-seconds when reaching towards the end of the processing time.


If most of the hairs are soft, silky and lay flat onto the skin, the lift lotion should be removed. Some hairs may stick up, which is an indication that they need additional processing. These hairs can be spot treated.

STEP-BY-STEP LIFT REMOVAL

Step 1. Starting from the front of the brow, use an applicator wand to remove the lift lotion. Always brush into the desired direction. The ideal direction is having the brows create a domino affect from front to tail as pictured above.


Step 2. Use a new dry applicator to brush and press the hairs flat onto the skin. Always brush and press the hairs into the desired direction.

BEFORE AND AFTER LIFT LOTION

The brows may have lightened after processing with the lift lotion. This is due to the decreased melanin in the hair. Melanin is responsible for brown-black pigment in hair and skin. More melanin equates to darker appearance of skin and hair. During a brow lamination the alkaline product can reduce the amount of melanin in the hair. The brows can be tinted to deposit pigment back into the hairs to restore the original color or even provide a more definition.

SET AND TINT

PURPOSE

During a brow lamination procedure, the disulfide bonds in the hair are broken by the lift lotion so the hair becomes soft and flexible and can be molded into the desired direction. To lock in the new shape, the disulfide bonds must be reformed using a set lotion.

SET x TINT

The set lotion is an active lotion the rebuilds the disulfide bonds in the hair. The Set x Tint Lotion is a 2-in-1 set lotion and tint oxidant all in one! We formulated this lotion to be extremely flexible, so it can be used alone to set a lift, or mixed with tint color to set a lift and tint lashes! This formulation is exclusive to us!


The brows should be processed with the Set x Tint lotion for the same amount of time as the Lift Lotion. When using it with a tint color, the brows can be processed for an additional 1-2 minutes for a more vibrant tint or skin staining. Over processing will not occur when using the Set x Tint Lotion, even if it's left on for longer than the recommended time. Its purpose is to reform the broken bonds, and will therefore not affect parts of the hair where the bonds were never broken. It will stop processing once the disulfide bonds have be reformed.

Processing Time Guideline

3 Minutes for Fine Hair

4 Minutes for Medium Hair

5 Minutes for Coarse Hair

6-7 Minutes for Very Coarse Hair

WHAT YOU'LL NEED

Set x Tint Lotion

A 2-in-1 Set Lotion and Tint Developer. An exclusive formula that allows you to set AND tint the brows at the same time. This flexible formula can be used alone as a set lotion or mixed with a tint colour to set the lift and tint the brows at the same time.


Set x Tint Lotion can be used with any tint colour that is activated by hydrogen peroxide,


Microbrush and Applicator Wand


Microbrushes have a fine tip that will give you the precision and control you need to apply/remove the lotion with control and precision.


Applicator wands have a large surface area so the lotion can easily be removed.

Angle Brush

The fine bristles provide the precision needed to apply the tint mixture accurately.


SET x TINT LOTION PLACEMENT

Bottom Line to 2/3 of Brow

The Set x Tint (+ tint color) mixture should be applied from the bottom of the brow to create a crisp line, and then should be feathered upwards to cover 2/3 of the brow.

Top of Brow

To prevent a harsh and boxy appearance, the remaining 1/3 of the brow should be covered with only the Set x Tint (without tint color).

Blend, Clean, Process

A styling brush is used to blend the tint mixture + set x tint lotion together. The bottom and top of the brow is cleaned up with an applicator wand to create a crisp outline. The brows are then processed for the recommended amount of time.

SET x TINT LOTION APPLICATION STEP-BY-STEP

Step 1. Dispense a pea sized amount of the Set x Tint lotion into a product ring along with a pea sized amount of the tint color. Mix thoroughly with a microbrush until the mixture looks even. Use immediately (do not pre-mix).


Step 2. Starting from the front of the brow, use an angled brush to outline the bottom of the brow. Follow the natural shape of the brow. Start timer #1.


Step 3. Starting back at the front of the brow, feather the tint upwards to cover 2/3 of the brow. 


Step 4. Cover the remaining 1/3 of the brow with only the Set x Tint lotion (NO TINT COLOR ADDED). Use a microbrush to apply the lotion.


Step 5. Use a styling brush to blend the tint mixture and set lotion together. Be careful not to disturb the outline.


Step 6. Use an applicator wand to clean up the outline of the brow. It is important to have crisp lines for neat results.


Step 7. Repeat on the other brow. Start timer #2.


Step 8. Remove the tint mixture after the recommend processing time, or leave on for an additional 1-2 minutes for a more vibrant tint.

STEP-BY-STEP SET AND TINT LOTION REMOVAL

Step 1. To create an ombre effect, the front of the brows should be processed for less time. Start by removing the tint from the front of the brow using an applicator wand. Process the remaining portion of the brows for 2-3 minutes (or longer if desired). Always brush in the same direction as the desired style. The ideal direction is having the brows create a domino affect from front to tail as pictured above.


Step 2. Remove the tint from the remaining portion of the brows using an applicator wand. Always brush in the same direction as the desired style.



Step 3. Use a damp cotton pad to remove any remaining residue from the brows. Always wipe in the same direction as the desired style.

BROW THERAPY

PURPOSE

During a brow lamination procedure, the disulfide bonds in the hair are broken by the lift lotion so the hair becomes soft and flexible and can be molded into the desired direction. As it's a chemical process, it can dehydrate the hairs. 


Brow Therapy is an intense brow mask that restores the hairs from within by infusing each hair fibre with protein, nourishing and moisturizing ingredients. Hairs will instantly look plump, moisturized and healthy.

TWEEZE

PURPOSE

The goal is to maintain the natural brow shape, and to only remove hairs that are outside of the shape. We recommend tweezing the brows, as this is the least irritating method of hair removal.

WHAT YOU'LL NEED

Tweezer

A precision brow tweezer to remove hair effortlessly.


TWEEZING STEP-BY-STEP

Step 1. Starting at the bottom of the brow, remove any hair that is outside the natural shape. The goal is to create a straight and crisp line.


Step 2. Starting at the top of the brow, remove any hair that is outside the natural shape. The goal is to create more definition. In some cases, hair removal is not required.


Step 3. The front of the brow should align with the middle of the nostril. Remove any hair between the brows if necessary. 

CONDITION

PURPOSE

Brow Lamination is a chemical process in which the hair bonds are broken and reformed. During this process, it can cause the hair to become dehydrated, porous, and even frizzy. The conditioning step assists in closing and conditioning the cuticles of the hairs. The cuticle layer is the outermost layer of the hair and is responsible for protection as well as moisture retention. During a brow lamination, the protective cuticle layer was opened in the "Lift" step for the product to penetrate into the cortex. The lashes must be conditioned immediately after the procedure to maintain cuticle health and to prevent the hair from becoming frizzy and unruly. 


Clients must condition their brows daily to ensure that they have longlasting results. 

WHAT YOU'LL NEED

Applicator Wand

The applicator wand has an absorbent head that soaks up the product so lashes can be evenly coated.

Glow Up

Revitalize the brows with a dose of protein, vitamins and nourishing ingredients to repair each fibre from the inside out. A specially formulated paste that melts upon contact with body heat, sealing each hair fibre and protecting it from the environment. It has a light-hold to help style the brows into the desired shape.


GLOW UP STEP-BY-STEP

Step 1. Coat an applicator wand with half a pea-size of Glow Up.


Step 2. Apply Glow Up by brushing and pressing the brows into the same direction of the desired style. Ensure to apply only a thin coat on the brows, as a thick coat will cause flaking.


Advise the client to not wet the brows for at least 4 hours so the nourishing and reparative ingredients can penetrate the hairs and work its magic.

CONTOUR

PURPOSE

Contouring highlights the bottom of the brow and creates a crisp bottom line, resulting in beautifully sculpted brows. To contour, a concealer that is 1-2 shades lighter is applied and blended out.  This is an optional step, as not all clients may like the appearance.

WHAT YOU'LL NEED

Angle Brush

This brush will provide the precision needed to accurately apply the concealer.

Flat Brush

This brush will provide the precision needed to feather out harsh lines.

Applicator Wand

The applicator wand has a large and soft head that is great for blending.

Concealer

Our concealer palette is available in different shades to provide you with the versatility to work on clients with different skin tones.


CONTOUR STEP-BY-STEP

Step 1. Starting at the front of the brow, use an angled brush to outline the bottom of the brow with a concealer that is 1-2 shades lighter.


Step 2. Use an applicator to blend the outline.


Step 3. Use a flat brush to blend any harsh outlines.
