At Jasmine Beauty we like to do our homework and invest time into looking at what’s up and coming regarding new brow trends from abroad. We like to stay current in our industry but also true to our brand and to the brow couture we have grown and developed over the years. We are true believers in timeless beauty!
The number one thing we promise our clients is to protect the longevity & health of the brow, so we only offer treatments that align with this. As we know, the beauty industry is full of wonderful new trends and ideas to reinvent ourselves - but be careful! Not all of these ideas protect the health of our precious eyebrows.
But what will the “modern” brow look like in 2020?
We have seen brows play a major role in fashion over the last several years. Very defined, very dark and very bold. Just like fashion trends, brow trends shift. Brows are now becoming softer, less defined and definitely not as dark and opaque.
It may start to drift away from the heavy look that some clients are asking for - especially in microblading and block tinting - and become more transparent.
We have had the dark, highly emphasised brow for several years, but now we are starting to see more skin show through the brow hairs. Brushing the brows up, above the natural line also allows more skin to show through. We noticed this last year with the Lamination and soap brow trend on the rise. You should be seeing this look spill over into 2020. Not everyone’s brows are naturally long enough to achieve this feathery, brushed up look. And many older women feel it looks a bit too messy.
After much consideration during 2019 we have decided to NOT offer Brow Lamination as a treatment at Jasmine Beauty Therapy as we believe that there can be some risks involved with this technique that may damage hairs. We are all about the long term health of your brow. We believe the “brushed up look” can be achieved with careful grooming and the use of our quality products.
One trend that has kept its strength over the past few years is the very full brow. Although brows will still be full, we feel that brows may slim down just a bit. A full brow equals youth, but starting in 2020 we may be headed for a slightly slimmer brow over the next few years. We won’t be diving back into the super slim brow of the 90’s, but brows may no longer be ultra-full.
Another thing to take note of is texture. Adding texture and a wispy look to a brow is possible using products. This can give a more “natural” look so using gels and powders should also continue to be on point. Once again, with texture, you are seeing more skin breaking through. So a dark, heavy brow will be less desirable.
You will also see highlighting of the brow hairs using gel or gloss. Using a brow gel that adds gloss and sheen to the hairs, so light is reflected, will be big in 2020.
And what about brow colour for 2020? Brows could begin to be a little less matchy-matchy with your hair colour. In fact, using a powder or pencil that is lighter than your brows may be the next trend. Once again this ties back into the fluffier, more transparent brow.
So to wrap it up, here is what to watch for in 2020 Brow Trends:
- Softer and less dramatic
- Skin showing through the brow hairs
- Texture added using brow gels, soft pencil work and powders
- Adding light reflecting gel to the hairs ie clear brow mascara
- Not quite as ultra-full
- Brow colour may be lighter than hair colour

LEARNING FROM MISTAKES
The eyebrow speaks volumes now and in the past! However, I think we are more aware than ever of the importance of promoting growth and health to the eyebrow because of the mistakes from our past.
Have we learnt a lesson? Absolutely we have!
At Jasmine Beauty Therapy, we want to take what we know now as well as what history has provided and continue to evolve our own comprehensive training to give you the very best in eyebrow design.
Read through this insightful summary of the history of eyebrows.
At Jasmine Beauty we like to be in touch with new industry ideas and innovations, plus anything that can improve or tweak our current treatments. We are aware that some brow “trends” can come and go but we like to focus on the long term solutions that ofter our client the best results. Our main focus is on brow health, brow restoration (growing back damaged brows) and education to prevent long term damage.
In saying that.. over the last few months we have been following a new beauty treatment called Brow Lamination. You may have already heard about this...
What is Brow Lamination?
Brow Lamination is basically a technique used on the eyebrows to help set your brow hairs in place for up to 8 weeks. During the Lamination process, various solutions are placed on your eyebrows which allow the hairs to become more pliable and more easily brushed into place. If you are one of those people who need to brush and set your brows into place by using a gel each morning, then Lamination can make this process a little easier as the hairs are more pliable afterwards. It can help create symmetry and style brows that are growing in different directions from one another.
Who should get Brow Lamination?
Brow Lamination should be done on clients who have a good coverage of hair on their eyebrows. It does not add brow hair and should not be done on a client with sparse hair to avoid the products sitting directly on the skin, plus gaps without hair may look more noticeable after Lamination.
People with brows that are unruly and wirey are good candidates. Also, people who have brows that don't stay in place or who have a lot of brow hair bunched together and want their brows to look fuller, bigger and more tame
Who shouldn’t get brow Lamination
Clients with reactions to Lash Lift products, sensitive skin and/or skin conditions.
Anyone who has had a facial peel or a cosmetic procedure in the 2 weeks prior to the treatment or 2 weeks after those procedures.
Important points to remember
• Over processing the brow hair can cause hair weakness, breakage and damage.
• Changing the direction of the hair too much can also risk hair breakage and can damage the hair shaft.
At the moment we don’t have an opinion for or against Brow Lamination but we will let you know if this is something we will be offering once we have witnessed the results over a period of time.
We want our clients to be well informed before trying new treatments, there is still plenty to be learnt regarding brow health. Keep in mind, some past “trends” are the reason we are so busy now restoring brows!
