Brow lamination can create full, fluffy brows with a stunning effect. But to get that pristine, perfect look, it's crucial to follow lamination instructions to a T. Check out these brow lamination mistakes that can cost you repeat business and how to avoid them to guarantee the best results for you and your client.
Forgetting To Patch Test
You should perform a patch test prior to every treatment. Doing so is easy—just apply a small amount of product behind your client's ear or in the crook of their elbow and ask them to monitor that area for reactions such as redness, itchiness, or hives for 24 to 48 hours. If their skin doesn't react, it's safe to proceed with the treatment.
If you fail to perform a patch test and your client is sensitive or allergic to the products you're using, they could break out into painful hives and have other unwanted, potentially dangerous symptoms. This is a huge brow lamination mistake that can cost you repeat business!
Not Cleaning Brows Beforehand
Take the time to clean your client's brows using Elleebana Make Up Remover at the start of every appointment. Dirt, oil, and other contaminants on the brows can negate the effect of the lamination formula and lead to subpar results. Clean your client's brows even if they say they already did it at home; it's better to be safe than sorry.
Leaving Product on for Too Short of Duration
If you don't let the lamination formula process long enough, your clients won't get the effect they are looking for. Use the following suggested processing times for brow lamination with Elleeplex Profusion for best results:
- Fine hairs: 5- to 6-minute lift time and 5- to 6-minute set time
- Medium hairs: 8-minute lift time and 6-minute set time
