I have been doing regular eyelash extensions (singles) for a while now and am thinking about adding clusters. I tried the Ardell black glue with Ardell clusters and that did not hold 24 hours. Does anyone do these and what do you use for glue? Should I use my regular glue for singles?
Hi there, I've been doing clusters as well and the Ardell glue that is made for clusters should be the only glue you use. Regular individual extension glue should not be used. Clusters are not made to stay on as long as individual extensions because they are placed on groups of lashes. If these stay on for weeks at a time, they will take out lashes that aren't ready causing bare areas.
Have you tried layering and staggering the clusters? I find that placing quite a few (15-20) groups of clusters on each eye helps them stay a little bit longer. But the nature of clusters themselves means they are pretty short-term, not like individuals.
Hope this helps!
I am fairly new to applying extensions as well and I have been trying to find cluster lashes. Can I order from Ardell without being certified by them? I was certified at my Esti school and I have been having problems finding a really good glue. I don't do a lot of applications so I hate the glue that only last 6 months. It horrible!!!! Does Ardell have a time limit on their glue as well?
Not what I am looking for then... Thank you for the info!!
