A bride has gone viral on social media after her wedding day hairstylist revealed that she used a strong adhesive to glue her ears back to create a flawless look.

In a video posted to Instagram on August 27, a Brazilian hair stylist called Mí Martins showed one of her client's looks for her special day.

The reel featured a woman holding a small tube of Three Bond Super 1000 glue, before taking the top off of it and applying it to the back of the bride’s ears.

The bride, who is called Lorena, could then be seen pushing her ears back to her head, in order to secure the glue. The video ended with a "before" photo of her ears without the glue, and then an "after" snap of her with the adhesive on her ears.

Check out a picture of the super-glued ears below:

In the caption of the video - which has been translated from Portuguese into English via Google Translate - Martins revealed that this wasn’t Lorena’s first time using the super glue on her ears.

"Today’s bride asked for a high bun, but she didn’t want her ear to show," Martins wrote. "She’s been using this glue technique for some time!! And today was no different at your wedding."

As of this writing, the Instagram Reel has 20.2 million views, with many viewers in the comments writing that they are stunned by the bride’s decision to use the transparent adhesive.

One user wrote, according to Google translate, that the bride's decision to pin her ears back is "an absurd thing" and "atrocity," while another shared: "This is too crazy."

A third user pointed out, per Google translate, that the glue will "warm up" after having contact with the bride's skin.

However, a fourth poked fun at the choice and wrote that their biggest fear would be the adhesive wearing off in the middle of the wedding ceremony.

But, some less judgmental viewers praised the hack and even confessed to using the sticky stunt on their own big day: "I did this at my wedding," one person admitted. "I had a dream to wear a bun and crown and [my wiggly ears weren’t going] to stop me."

Another person also shared, via google translate: "I did it at my wedding even though it hurts it's pretty good It's just a little uncomfortable."

However, many specialists have urged people not to put adhesive near their skin. According to the Independent, Cleveland Clinic, dermatologist John Anthony, MD said that while superglue isn’t usually "harmful," it could still potentially irritate you.

"Getting a small amount of super glue on the skin isn’t harmful to most people," Anthony said. "But a few people are allergic to it. It can cause a skin reaction called contact dermatitis. The reaction shows up a few days after the exposure and looks like a poison ivy rash."

The dermatologist also shared some safeguards if you ever swallow super glue or put it near your face, explaining: "Super glue in or near your eyes, nose or mouth is a medical emergency. Contact a poison control center or go to the emergency room."
