Mesmerising! So how does it work?

Similarly to the 'eyebrow lamination' trend that burst onto the scene last year, the treatment works by covering the hair in a thin layer of ‘laminate’ – being gelatin, keratin and oils.

If you’re thinking it sounds similar to keratin hair straightening, there are a couple of key differences to note.

Although keratin hair straightening last for a few months, they can be pricey. Hair lamination is a cheaper, short-term option that only lasts a couple of weeks. Think of it more as a quick fix option for when you’re wanting to up your hair’s shine for a big event.
