ARevolution is taking the Cluster Lashes Extensions –with No Track Lines in a profitable direction for salons
Cluster lashes placed under the lash is a new trend because it offers a more natural look than traditional eyelash extensions. This is because the clusters are placed underneath the natural lashes, which makes them less noticeable. Additionally, there is no track line, which is the line of glue that is visible on the lash line with traditional eyelash extensions. This makes the look more seamless and undetectable.
Cluster lashes placed under the lash are also good for salons because they are a quick and easy application. This is because the clusters can be applied all at once, rather than individually. This saves time and money for both the salon and the client.
Here are some of the benefits of cluster lashes placed under the lash:
More natural look
No track line
Quick and easy application
Less damaging to natural lashes
Here are some additional details about cluster lashes placed under the lash:
Cluster lashes are made up of a group of 5-10 lashes that are glued together.
Cluster lashes can be applied to the top or bottom of the natural lashes.
Cluster lashes can be made from a variety of materials, including synthetic and human hair.
Cluster lashes can be customized to create a variety of looks, from natural to dramatic.
Cluster lashes can last for up to 2 weeks with proper care.
Cluster lashes are a great way to add volume and definition to your lashes. They can be used to create a variety of looks, from natural to dramatic. Here are some of the benefits of having cluster lashes:
They can make your eyes look bigger and brighter. The added volume and definition of cluster lashes can help to open up your eyes and make them look more awake.
They can help to frame your face. Cluster lashes can help to create a more defined eye shape, which can make your face look more symmetrical.
They can give you a more glamorous look. If you’re looking for a way to add a touch of glamour to your look, cluster lashes are a great option. They can help you to look your best for a special occasion or a night out.
Classic eyelash extensions are the most popular type of extension. In this technique, a single extension is applied to each natural lash. This creates a natural-looking lash that is still long and full.
Volume eyelash extensions use multiple extensions to create a fuller, more dramatic look. In this technique, a cluster of 2-5 extensions are applied to each natural lash. This can create a very dramatic look, but it can also be more damaging to natural lashes.
Hybrid eyelash extensions combine the classic and volume techniques. In this technique, a mix of single and cluster extensions are applied to create a customized look. This can be a good option for those who want a natural-looking lash with a little extra volume.
Magnetic eyelash extensions are a type of false eyelash that uses small magnets to adhere to your natural lashes. They are a popular alternative to traditional eyelash extensions, which use glue. Magnetic eyelash extensions have two components, eyelash strip with thin magnetic strips and magnetic eyeliner. It is considered to be more natural-looking and less damaging to your natural lashes

Every New Year I have always checked for the top business growth tips and trends.
This year I have decided to present my own because we the business community are still living in unprecedented times of uncertainty, fear, transformation, deception, confusion, and outright disruption of the old ways of doing business.
I am Diane Shawe founder of Virtual Speedy Services Ltd (which I gave birth to during the first lockdown) and author of ‘Answer 77 Questions about your business to avoid business failure’ shares her top small business growth strategies for the year ahead.
2021 has been a year of rapid transformation across all industries as the business community has dealt with shifting customer buying activities and economic challenges, as well as mitigating hot-button issues such as the pandemic and people’s changing conception of work life balance. In a year filled with change, there are some trends which are going to be firmly fixed into 2022 that you and your business should seriously build into your growth plans.
To lead your business in the right direction as we head into 2022, here are my humble 10 small business growth strategies.[
1. Prioritise your business culture
Throughout the pandemic, businesses have been dealing with “The Great Resignation” as workers are quitting their jobs at record-high rates. One of the reasons for this is that people are changing their definitions of what they consider a healthy work-life balance and what they want in a company culture.
“The pandemic has shifted the way people incorporate work into their life, whether it’s moving to another county for cheaper housing or not going into the office every day and getting the opportunity to do remote or hybrid work,” Diane states.
Diane goes on further to state that “Not all solutions are made equal, and culture is now a part of that. “A big factor for employees, in addition to salary and benefits, is culture, so have a culture strategy in place.”
2. Consider hiring more freelance workers
The number of gig workers, freelancers and contractors has grown exponentially over the last few years and they make up a large portion of workers within the current market.
“Small business owners will now be able to bring in more specialised freelance workers to carry out tasks without having to deal with the hiring and training costs that are often associated with recruiting a full-time employee,” said Diane. “With the importance of being agile in today’s economic environment … as well as the rise of remote work, … skilled outsource
Peopleperhour.com and fiverr.com are great places to start.
3. Work with micro-influencers
While small businesses may be competing against larger businesses to work with online influencers, collaborating with micro-influencers is an option to consider.
“As influencer marketing is becoming more popular than ever… micro-influencers are going to be the best option for small businesses because they don’t cost as much and they are more open to collaborating with small businesses too,” explained Diane. “With a couple of these small influencers helping [your business] reach specific audiences, growth will not be an impossible feat in 2022.”
4. Leverage the way you supply your products and services.
Distributors and businesses across the country dealt with supply chain issues with the continuation of the COVID-19 pandemic and its subsequent economic disruptions. In 2022, businesses must be aware of scarcities within the supply chain and get ahead of manufacturing and transportation challenges by working collaboratively with their suppliers.
Checkout companies like Amazon who can provide a fulfillment service for your orders. Consider moving to a drop shipping manufacturer or warehouse so as to reduce your cash investment in slow moving stock.
5. Educate client and partners your new paradigms
It’s important to inform your clients and partners about changes you’re making to better benefit your business across a shifting economic landscape. If the changes don’t land, it may be time to consider other options,
Many businesses are painfully aware how much the talent pool has changed. Working with potential employees, client partners to educate them on the new management styles needed, increased compensation packages and other aspects of recruitment and retention is very important.
6. Prepare for potential contracting opportunities
Almost 80 new businesses were created every hour across the UK in the first half of 2021, according to research by iwoca – one of Europe’s largest small business lenders.
Analysis of Companies House data reveals that 340,534 businesses were registered in the UK between January and June 2021, an increase of 32% from 257,243 over the same time period in 2019.
London dominates list of areas to start a business
iwoca’s Small Business HotSpots UK 2021 reveals that Camden saw the largest number of businesses registered out of all UK local authorities, with 19,755 new companies – a rate of more than four and a half new firms every hour.
The second largest number of new businesses were registered in Hackney (13,646) followed by 10,151 in Westminster. London’s local authorities make up half of the top 10, which also includes Birmingham in 5th with 7,442 new firms and Kent placing 7th with 6,504 businesses.
London saw over one third of the new registrations with 120,338, followed by the South East (37,573) and North West (33,640). The capital city also witnessed the largest increase in new business registration compared to 2019 of 59%, with the West Midlands registering a 49% rise followed by the North East (28%).
Christoph Rieche, iwoca CEO and co-founder, said: “It is fantastic to see the creation of so many businesses during the first half of this year, they are testament to the entrepreneurial spirit which characterises our vibrant economy.
“Many of these businesses will be unnecessarily constrained by cashflow. At iwoca we turn cashflow into a superpower enabling them to grow faster and worry less. We look forward to working with many of them.”-
Why is such a growth happening?
A survey I read stated that 39% of people in current jobs are going to quit within the next 12 months, which is not great for an employer, but suggests a start of a business revolution is happening.
What advice would I give to somebody looking to start a business?
There is never a good time to do it and you just must go for it. It’s all encompassing and it’s a phenomenon. I just decided to go for it in 2000 and have never looked back. However you can be clever about it though – can you cut down your hours in your current role or could you work part-time initially? Explore your options wisely.
7. Get creative on sales and marketing opportunities
The digital marketing landscape has become increasingly challenging due to congestion and evolving regulations, said Diane Shawe of Virtual Speedy Services Ltd
“This is forcing many traditionally digital companies to explore other sales channels and marketing strategies,” she said.
To mitigate these challenges, Shawe said her company is getting creative by helping other companies engage with A.I. Conversational Marketing Technologies with its engaging methods.
8. Widen your business’s online footprint
Small businesses must adapt and be “practical” when it comes to sales, as consumers continue to favor online and mobile shopping.
“Businesses need to widen their online footprint to gain a significant proportion of customers from the current market,” said Diane. “A simple way to sell products is to have a sellers account on your popular social media or estore platforms. To sell services, … list [your company] on freelance and contract websites.” Also create a blog and YouTube website for reviewing products, testimonials, advice and tips. Become the expert in your field. Entry competitions, exhibitions, network meetings.
9. Learn video SEO strategies to rank higher on search engines
Video marketing has become an integral part of a successful marketing strategy with the rise of live videos on platforms like TikTok and Instagram. It’s estimated that by 2022, videos will account for 82% of all consumer traffic. That’s why video SEO should be a top priority for businesses in 2022.
“Small businesses that incorporate short-form videos into their website posts will see more organic traffic coming from search engines,” explained Gilmour. “As TikTok continues to grow, search engine algorithms will shift to articles and posts that include short-form videos. Short-form videos from TikTok and YouTube may even become the main point of ‘how to’ searches.”
10. Utilise partnership marketing to reach a broader audience Partnership marketing is a strategic collaboration that gives you and your partner company a chance to reach a wider audience together, explained Diane Shawe, founder of Virtual Speedy Services Ltd.
“Collaboration with another company can aid in the development of better marketing initiatives that benefit both parties, If your target clients are similar, you may pool your resources to better your marketing techniques, build your brands and expand your audience reach.”
Start to use smart customer acquisition techniques such as collaborating with discount giants such as wowcher, groupon or discount voucher websites to help get your business name, brand or services directly into potential customers mobile.
“Another example, if a consumer purchases a product from you, you can provide a discount coupon that they can use to purchase discounted products from your business partner,” said Diane. “Co-branding of a product or project can also boost both companies’ marketing power.”

The period begins from the day you felt symptoms – whether they be mild of strong. If you do not feel any symptoms, however, the isolation period begins from the day you got tested.
Upon entering your positive test result into the Covid-19 app, you will be advised on which date to isolate until and which you are legally obliged to follow. You will also receive a call or text from NHS Test and Trace if you do not have access to the app.
However, those who are double vaccinated and have been notified as coming into contact with someone infected by Covid-19, are exempt from self-isolation rules providing they take daily lateral flow tests for 7 days.
If at any point you test positive during the 7 day period, you will need to isolate from the day you received the positive result.
How can I claim financial support under the Test and Trace support payment scheme?
You might be able to get a payment of £500 to support you during self-isolation if you live in England and meet all the following criteria:
You’ve been told to stay at home and self-isolate by NHS Test and Trace or the NHS Covid-19 app, either because you’ve tested positive for Covid-19 or have recently been in close contact with someone who has tested positive
You’ve responded to messages from NHS Test and Trace and have provided any legally required information, such as details of your close recent contacts
You’re employed or self-employed
You’re unable to work from home and will lose income as a result of self-isolating
You’re currently receiving or are the partner of someone in the same household who is receiving, at least one of the following benefits:
Working Tax Credit
Income-based Employment and Support Allowance
Income-based Jobseeker’s Allowance
If you’re not on one of these benefits, you might still be able to apply for a £500 discretionary payment if all the following apply:
You meet all the other criteria listed above
You’re on a low income
You will face financial hardship as a result of self-isolating
What if my child has been told to self-isolate?
If you have not contracted Covid-19 but are the parent or guardian of a child who is subject to self-isolation measures, you could be be eligible for the payment, if the following apply:
You’re the parent or guardian of a child in your household who is self-isolating, and you need to take time off work to care for them
Your child is aged 15 or under, or aged 25 or under with an Education, Health and Care (EHC) Plan, normally attends an education or childcare setting, and has been told to self-isolate by NHS Test and Trace or by their education or childcare setting
You’re unable to work from home and will lose income because you have to care for your child while they are self-isolating
You meet all the other eligibility criteria for a Test and Trace Support Payment or discretionary payment
You can claim up to 42 days after the first day of your, or your child’s self-isolation period.
For the application, you will need to provide the following:
An NHS Test and Trace Account ID, sometimes referred to as a CTAS number. If you test positive for Covid-19, or are told to self-isolate by contact tracers, you will be provided with an NHS Test and Trace Account ID
A bank statement
Proof of employment or, if you’re self-employed, evidence of self-assessment returns, trading income and proof that your business delivers services that cannot be undertaken without social contact
If applying for your child, you will need to input your child’s NHS Test and Trace Account ID or proof of communication from their education or childcare setting telling them to self-isolate.
What are the rules in self-isolation?
NHS Test and Trace will advise on when your isolation period starts and ends, but it typically lasts 10 days from the day contact was made.
Unless you are exempt it is illegal to not self-isolate if you have been contacted and you could be fined if you do not obide the rules.
You should not leave your home for any reason when you are self isolating.
Do not go to work, school or public places – work from home if you can
Do not go on public transport or use taxis
Do not go out to get food and medicine – order it online or by phone, or ask someone to bring it to your home
Do not have visitors in your home, including friends and family – except for people providing essential care
