Lash removal. Client came in with excessive glue, glued to multiple natural lashes, size of lashes were too thick, and length too long. Multiple clusters were present. Photos below reflect one cluster after removing the rest.
"clusters, flares, and semi’s” – RUN away!!!
Cluster lashes are not applied individually to your natural lashes. They are glued to a bunch of your natural lashes, and use a ton of thick adhesive to hold them on. The problem with this is that your natural lash shed cycle is completely disrupted. All the lashes that are glued together will keep growing at different speeds.
As they grow, the lashes growing faster will pull on the follicles of the slower growing lashes, causing such issues as: a burning/itching sensation, twisted flipped lash extensions, styes, eye infections, and the most common side effect: follicle damage/trauma resulting in thinned out lashes, and bald spots where natural lashes will stop growing.
Our natural lashes need to be able to shed independently of each other. When cluster lashes are applied (slathered in adhesive and pressed to multiple lashes), damage and discomfort are GUARANTEED!
Usually applied by inexperienced or self taught eyelash artists. Please be sure your technician is certified.
