People might get confused with the cluster lashes and pre-made fans. But then, they are different in so many ways.

Cluster lashes are not professional lashes, they can be purchased and applied by anyone. You do not need specific training to use the cluster lashes.

Premade fans, on the other hand, are professionally used by licensed estheticians and cosmetologists. These lashes are heat bonded and seamlessly blend together making it easier to attach to each individual lash.


When applying cluster lashes, they are applied to the skin and sit on multiple lashes at a time. They are meant to stay for a very short period of time.

When applying pre-made fans, they are applied to each of your individual lashes away from the skin. with proper care, your lash extension can last anywhere from 2-4 weeks.

weight differences

As it may look, cluster lashes can be very heavy on the natural lashes. They can actually have the chance to ruin your natural lashes since it can’t hold so much of a weight.

Pre-made fans are multiple fine lashes bonded together. It should feel lightweight and your natural lashes should remain healthy.

Please know the difference very well. We should also educate our dear clients of these 2 types of lashes.
