- Feathered brows are continuing to trend into 2022.
- Brow lamination is one way to get the feathered brow trend, but the service can cost up to $100.
- Celebrities like Ashley Graham as well as TikTokers swear by the Got2B Glued Styling Spiking Glue to get the look at home for less.
Since feathered, brushed-up eyebrows first exploded onto the beauty scene in 2017, we have since seen numerous iterations of the trend. The latest version of the feathered brow look we’ve come to love? The laminated brow, a chemical treatment that is “designed to redirect your brow hairs so that you get the most fullness out of your natural growth,” Jaimineey Patel, groomer and head trainer for Blink Brow Bar, previously told POPSUGAR.
Still, as is often the case when it comes to professional beauty services, people on social media have found a way to get the look of fluffy laminated brows at home — for a fraction of the price. Enter: the Got2B Glued Styling Spiking Glue ($5).
In the wake of numerous eyebrow products promising the same brushed-up effect but for anywhere between $20 to $30, many TikTok users have revealed this affordable glue (which was originally formulated for the hair on your head, not your face) as their brow lamination secret. Even celebrities like Ashley Graham swear by the Got2B hair glue. As someone with relatively thinner eyebrows, I knew I had to try the glue for myself.
The best part about this hack is that you only need a spoolie, your fingers, and the brow gel — that’s it. There’s no need to buy numerous additional products to make the look work for you.
To apply, I’ve been using an old Makeup Academy Dual-Ended spoolie brush that’s no longer available (but this Aesthetica Pro Double Ended Brush and Spoolie ($4) from Amazon is comparable).
The glue has a fairly wet consistency, so I decided to take the product directly from the bottle onto the spoolie, instead of onto my brow first, to avoid a messy application. I started with just my left brow to compare the results against my brow without any product.
Once I applied the glue, I brushed my eyebrow hairs closest to the center upward to “laminate” that area, as this is where I find that I have a bit of thinning. As you can see, in comparison to my right brow, the front portion of my left brow not only looks fuller, but it also has that textured look everyone is after. In fact, the entire eyebrow framed my face, even without any additional product being used to fill in sparse areas. For someone who, like me, is always in a rush to do their makeup, the fact that this product made my eyebrows look this good in just one step is a game-changer (and time saver).
TikTok has once again come in clutch with an at-home beauty hack that doesn’t break the bank. The Got2B hair glue is cost efficient, performs spectacularly, and is multipurpose for whenever I decide to venture into wigs. This glue will easily become a staple once I finish up my other brow products, and I don’t see myself turning back to my old ways any time soon.
