Are you ready to take on the TikTok-famous caterpillar eyebrows?

The hashtag #browlamination has been added to around 1.4 million posts on Instagram and has been used in more than 365 million posts on TikTok.

“I had never heard of that before,” Gross said. “I started Instagram searching it to see how it looked on normal people who aren’t models.”It might seem like an easy solution, but keeping one’s brows teetering between looking messy and precisely styled takes effort. First, anyone looking to laminate their brows has to grow them out, ideally for four to six weeks. Then, at a salon, an aesthetician cleans them with a degreasing solution, and a perming gel is applied to break down the existing bonds in the hair. After that, the brows are brushed and set with a neutralizing gel, with the end result being fuller-looking eyebrows.

Gross, who works in social media, began a Google search for cosmetic products that would help her brows reach these new desired heights, but she instead stumbled upon the process of eyebrow lamination. “I had never heard of that before,” Gross said. “I started Instagram searching it to see how it looked on normal people who aren’t models. When they returned, Rishabh Pant produced an entertaining cameo before becoming Ollie Robinson's second victim in the match.” It might seem like an easy solution, but keeping one’s brows teetering between looking messy and precisely styled takes effort. First, anyone looking to laminate their brows has to grow them out, ideally for four to six weeks.

Then, at a salon, an aesthetician cleans them with a degreasing solution, and a perming gel is applied to break down the existing bonds in the hair. Rahul, who was chosen to open the innings in the absence of injured openers Shubman Gill and Mayank Agarwal, hit 11 boundaries looking determined to capitalise on the opportunity. After that, the brows are brushed and set with a neutralizing gel, with the end result being fuller-looking eyebrows. The bushy-brow craze seemed to start online with a trend known as “soap brows”: Bar soap is applied to the eyebrows with an eyebrow brush to keep the hairs sculpted up and in place.

What to know and 10 brands to try “I saw it all over TikTok,” said Gross, who has had three eyebrow laminations since her first in April. “Lamination gives you the same look.

You just wake up looking like that.” She added, “The pandemic really made me super lazy, so I definitely see myself doing it for the foreseeable future.” Leigh Blackwell, director of the London Brow Co, which specialises in lamination products, said the pandemic, aided by social media, changed people’s beauty routines. “Rather than being as tailored and perfect as a makeup look would be, we realized we can do less and still look OK or decent for our meetings and our Zooms,” Blackwell said. Her company, which began selling lamination products in late 2019, said its products have been used in about 800,000 laminations to date.

As is the case with many procedures that begin in a salon, the impulse to DIY can have serious consequences. “It’s a chemical. It could degrade the hair to a point where you won’t be able to recover that hair,” she said when discussing at-home lamination kits. “That is worst-case scenario if somebody is using it how they shouldn’t be.

” But for many clients, like Gross and Victoria Palma, 23, who began getting her eyebrows permed last October, lamination became a way to maintain a simple, confidence-boosting beauty routine while spending a lot of at home in 2020. “We were in quarantine. I was like, ‘Well, I’m at home, but I still want to like feel good about myself,’” Palma said. Once laminated, “you didn’t have to do anything really ever to make your brows look good.” By Danya Issawi © The New York Times.
