Woman’s eyelids stuck together in botched eyelash extension

Using super glue to apply fake lashes is obviously something you should never, ever do.

But one backstreet beautician in Phuket, Thailand for some reason thought it was a good idea.

Benyapa Supap claims she was left in agony for three days after the salon used the super-strength Elephant glue to fasten the lashes to her eyelids.

The 35-year-old thought she was getting "super model" lashes after paying 1,500 baht (£35) to Hair Infinity salon.

Benyapa walked out and within minutes she had swollen eyes – when she blinked her eyelids stuck together.

She complained to the salon and they dropped the price from 1500 baht to 1,000 baht (£24) after she said she was in pain and couldn’t close her eyes.

Benyapa said to Viral Press : "What they used on my eyes smelled the same as super glue and it was very fast drying."

She asked for help from a second beauty salon which described the mess as the "worst case of malpractice" they had ever seen.

Beautician Fara Foosaeng, 40, helped her out.

Fara fixed the woman’s swollen eyelids by applying a glue softening solution and using a steel cuticle pusher to scrape away the glue – filming the process.

Fixing the problem took an hour and Benyapa was left with bald eyelids and no eyelashes, paying 1,000 baht (£24) for her eyelashes to be sorted out. The glue had gone into the eye socket which caused the swelling and pain.

Benyapa said that as she had just moved to the area she didn’t know where the best salons were.

She added: "I was in pain for three days after. My boyfriend went back to the shop the next day but they didn’t give our money back and they spoke not nice to my boyfriend.

"I went to the police but they said there’s nothing they can do about it. I just want them to be sorry but they’re not."
