Brow lamination is designed to straighten the brow hair resulting in an instantly full, lifted and fluffy brow. Many people are mistaking LAMINATION for Microblading, it enhances each natural, individual hair stroke that much!! The process essentially involves straightening eyebrow hairs using Brow Code's LUSTRE Lamination Kit with it's unique step by step treatment guide, so that all hairs stand in the desired direction. This treatment has INSANE results teamed with Brow Tint. Brow Code's formula is also VEGAN FRIENDLY!
How does it compare to brow threading, microblading, etc?
Lamination is a very unique treatment - Nothing like any of the above, also nothing like anything else on the market in the brow industry! It can be teamed with all other brow services as an add on.
Who is brow lamination the best for?
EVERYONE and anyone!!!! Brow Lamination will make a thin brow appear full within 30 minutes as-well as a more full brow appear fuller and more fluffy!
Are there are pre/post-procedure things people need to follow? i.e. not wearing makeup, not getting brows wet?
Yes of course, like most brow treatments - Do not wet the brow for 24 hours and avoid going in saunas.

It lasts up to 6-8 weeks. Each morning your Laminated brows will require styling by brushing and setting in place. You will also need to apply the Brow Balm daily to restore the brow hair.

What do I need to do before I come to the studio for my airbrush tan application?
Please make sure that you are freshly showered, shave areas that need to be shaved, exfoliate, and please do NOT apply lotions, oils, makeup, or deodorant. Skin should be clean and dry to better absorb solution.
What kind of exfoliator should I use?
You can use a sugar or salt scrub. If not, a loofah sponge will work as well.
What do I wear to the studio?
We suggest you wear loose clothing, you will feel more comfortable leaving in something that fits loose to the body.
What if I am coming in right from work?
That is fine. We suggest you bring a change of clothes to wear home. You can also wash your face in the studio so your skin is dry and clean!
What do I wear while I am being sprayed?
You can wear a bathing suit, strapless bra, any kind of underwear, or nothing at all (best to avoid tan lines).
Will this effect my manicure or pedicure?
The air brush tan will not effect your manicure or pedicure. The solution won't stick to the polish or the cuticle.
Can I apply make up right after I'm sprayed?
We suggest that you wait about 2-3 hours to apply make up.
How long does the tan last?
Your tan will last 7-10 days. For best results take cooler showers, do not exfoliate, and shave lightly. When showering, use only soap and water, no wash cloth or loofah.
When will I start to see a difference in color?
You will see immediate results and the tan will get darker the following 8 hours. Once the 8 hrs is up the tan is no longer absorbing into the skin.
When can I shower?
Please wait at least 6-8 hrs to shower.
Can I shower in the morning?
Yes you can ! The tan stops absorbing after 8 hrs. So showering in the morning is safe .
What can I shower with?
We would recommend soap that is moisturizing or just plain bar soap.
What can I moisturize with?
You can moisturize with just about anything that does not have exfoliants in it.
What solution do you use?
We use SJOLIE blends. SJOLIE is 100% Vegan (approved by PETA), Paraben free, Erythrulose free and fragrance free. It is made from only naturally derived ingredients that include Organic DHA, Aloe Vera leaf extract (healing, soothing and anti-irritating properties), Tocopherol Actetate (Vitamin E), Retinyl Palmitate (Vitamin A), & Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C)
*If you plan to be out in the sun, REMEMBER to where sunscreen. A airbrush tan is not a tan base. Your skin is still susceptible to Sun Damage!
Lash lift & tint
What is a Lash Lift?
It's a lifting technique designed to give you longer and fuller-looking lashes. It will look as if you used a really good eyelash curler, only this lift lasts for 6 to 8 weeks! To top off the treatment, I'll apply a black lash tint which really makes your lashes look more prominent. The procedure takes about 45 to 60 mins to complete. It really is an easy way to instantly brighten and open up the eye area!
How do I need to prep for the treatment?
PLEASE ARRIVE TO YOUR APPOINTMENT COMPLETELY FREE OF EYE MAKE UP! If you wear contacts, they must be removed.
Is this like lash extension?
Lash extensions and lash lifts are quite different. We will not be adding any additional lashes to the eye. We will simply be curling your natural lashes. That said, for most, it can make your lashes appear fuller because they are so uplifted.
What are the post treatment instructions?
Pretty simple: Don't get your lashes wet or apply anything at all to them for 24 hours.
Can I book this on the same day as a facial?
Is there any maintenance?
None at all! You don't have to do anything special with your lashes in between lifts other than giving them a good brush out daily and stay away from waterproof mascara.
Can I still wear mascara?
Of course! You'll achieve a more dramatic effect when mascara is applied to your lifted lashes.
Why can’t I wear waterproof mascara?
Harsh chemicals are used in waterproof formulas in order to make them, well.... waterproof. This chemical composition is extremely drying to your lashes. Not to mention all the effort and extra tugging and pulling on the lashes to remove the mascara. To be honest, most people are not great at thoroughly removing the masacara. If that’s the case, now you’re running around with this super drying film of chemicals on your lashes 24 hours a day. This results in weakened lashes that are prone to breakage, and over shedding.
Have you been trained in this service?
Yes. We are certified by Elleebana Lash Lift Academy.
How is this treatment any different than a lash perm?
Some of the lash perms of years past use tiny little rods that product a way too inverted curl. Others, use a type of lash curler/clamp which can be uncomfortable and difficult to work with. The methods we employ use silicon domed shields that lift the lashes from the root, producing a beautiful, uplifted look as if you used a high quality eyelash curler.
Will this damage my eyelashes?
No, if you follow all the advice on Pre prep and Post care. The lifting solutions are only applied to the new growth area of the lashes, down towards the base and up a bit. Never to the ends of the lashes.
Is it painful?
No. At first, when I'm applying the shields to the eyelids, it may feel a bit strange. But, for the most part, it's very relaxing! You just kick back and relax :)
I have downward-pointing lashes, will this be a good treatment for me?
Yes! Anyone with these types of pesky lashes will love the lash lift! Post treatment, your lashes will all be evenly dispersed and lifted.
How long does the effect last?
Depending on the length and quality of your natural lashes, the lift can last for 6 to 8 weeks.
I have very very short lashes. Am I able to still do this procedure?
Yes, we will get them lifted!
I have glaucoma, can I have this procedure?
Yes. If ever in doubt, always consult with your physician.
I've recently had lasik surgery, can I have this procedure?
Yes, but you need to wait at least 6 months. As always, when in doubt, please consult with your physician.
Can I document my experience?
Please do! However, we require 24 hours advance notice for any and all video blogging. We ask that you tag us in your social media posts @ruthieseyesstudio♥
