Brow lamination is a two-step eyebrow perming treatment that involves correcting the brow shape by setting the hairs in place using a chemical solution. In the first step, a cream is applied that breaks down bonds in the eyebrow hairs so they can be manipulated into a new position. In the second step, another cream is applied to rebuild these bonds and set the brows in their new uniform position.

The Duchess has always had a strong brow shape

"The Duchess of Cambridge is supporting a much more shaped and groomed brow recently, the shape has changed slightly and looks flatter whilst also looking like she may have had them laminated or lightly laminated."

He added: "Brow lamination straightens out the hairs by breaking down the bonds within the hair and then rebuilding them, making the hairs straight and smooth."

"Rather than opting for the typical brushed up brow look that’s achieved by brow lamination, it looks like the Duchess has had a light lamination to correct the direction of her natural growth, resulting in all the brow hairs sitting uniformed and overall looking a lot more groomed. Another benefit to light lamination is that the brows still have texture and don’t lay too flat to skin, perfect for those clients who prefer something more natural looking.”
