As the name suggests, this eyebrow enhancement method originated in Russia and is now conquering the world of beauty and fashion. Also known as eyebrow rolling, this technique involves smoothing your eyebrows and brushing them upward. This gives them a naturally sculpted look for a more sophisticated appearance. The Russian Brow Treatment is for you if you spend dozens of minutes using brow gel to get fluffy, brushed brows.

How do an enhanced eyebrows work?

Since it is similar to an eyelash lift, it is called an eyebrow lift because it acts like a perm for the eyebrows. It accentuates the appearance of your natural eyebrows by texturizing the hair. The brow artist uses a chemical solution to soften the hair follicles, making them more malleable. Then, it reshapes the eyebrows to refine and raise them, giving them a smoother shape. This will give you well-defined eyebrows that last up to a month.

The benefits of the Brow Lift

Here are some benefits if you're still hesitant to say yes to eyebrow enhancement.

  • It is a painless alternative to Microblading, Microshading or Micrograyling
  • No intensive aftercare is required – leave the salon with flawless brows.
  • Quickly solves problems such as excessive hair removal and stray eyebrow hairs that cannot be tamed.
  • Life span of several weeks

How to prepare for a  enhanced eyebrows session

Although it is not an intense process like other permanent makeup techniques, it still requires some preparation. It is best not to use products such as exfoliants or retinol at least two days before your appointment. Your Artist suggests this because these products can react with the laminating solution. It is also recommended that you do not use wax, thread, or tweeze your eyebrows before your appointment.

This is also an excellent time to let your Artist know if you have any skin conditions, such as eczema or psoriasis. This will help her determine if a Brow Lift is your best option.

How does the enhanced eyebrows session go

Here's what you can expect when you lie down at your appointment.

  • When you come to the salon for your eyebrow waxing appointment, the Artist will begin by cleaning your eyebrow area so that there is no oil, bacteria, or makeup. Then he applies a cream to relax the hair follicles. The hairs soften, making them easier to position and sculpt. Your Artist can apply a plastic film on the eyebrows for five minutes.
  • Once the relaxing cream has taken effect, he will remove and apply a fixing cream called a neutralizer. This cream is a glue that fixes your eyebrow hairs in their new structure. After leaving the cream on for a few minutes, he will use a spool-shaped brush to brush the hairs upwards.
  • Once your eyebrows are in place, she removes the stray hairs. Be sure not to try to trim the hair yourself, as it can give a blunt rather than fluffy appearance.
  • Finally, she will apply a serum that stops the action of the applied creams.

What follow-up after the enhanced eyebrows session?

After the session, you must protect your eyebrows from humidity for 24 hours and skin and eyebrow care products. These could affect the longevity of your eyebrow treatment and possibly displace them. Artists also advise against plucking your eyebrows after a Brow Lift appointment. This is because the creams used in the eyebrow-lifting process open up the hair follicles so that the wax can damage the skin. Finally, after 24 hours, it is recommended to apply a moisturizing oil every night to maintain the hair's suppleness.
