Allergies: Some clients may have a reaction to lash glue. Tell your clients to contact you immediately if they feel any type of discomfort, swelling or irritation. If this does occur, have your client come in so you can remove the eyelash extensions. Once all glue and lashes are removed and the eye area is cleaned, apply come hydrocortisone cream. Have your client wait with you for about 10 minutes and once any irritation has subdued they may leave with a small container of hydrocortisone cream. You may want to recommend that they purchase some and visit their doctor if symptoms continue.
