Preparing the hair

Sectioning the hair

Cut the hair into a short, sharp,

bob incorporating an asymmetrical

fringe. Remove the bulk of the hair

using thinning scissors, which is a

perfect way of thinning out the hair

without cutting off too much. The

slight graduation to the cut will give

the style strength.

Create a bow arc section two

fingers away from the hairline. The

section should be on an

asymmetric angle, following the

shape of the head.

Bleed the bonding through the hair

by pushing up from beneath,

bringing the hands together. Pinch

top and bottom and roll between

the fingers to form a solid bead

using both hands. Repeat until a

solid row of extensions are

created.

Fringe placement

Apply 3 rows of extensions using an even blend of ash

blonde and warm brown (Racoon Euro colours 42, 45

and 24) to match the models natural hair colour to

achieve a fuller and thicker fringe.

Finished section

When the section is completed the

model should be left with solid rows

of extensions in a bow arc with no

gaps, all the extensions should be

touching. By using Racoon’s unique

micro bonding technique, the bonds

are so subtle that they will be barely

visible, perfect for delicate extensions

work such as this.

Cutting

Cut the extensions on a graduated

asymmetric angle from a sharp

point just above the eyebrow to a

sharp point at the cheekbone.

Finishing off

Finish with clippers in order to

achieve a really sharp, blunt

edge.

Sectioning the hair

Cut the hair into a classic, slightly

graduated, box bob. The

geometric angles of the blunt fringe

and 45 degree angular points at

the front should be finished off with

clippers in order to achieve a blunt

finish with a soft edge.

Section off the top layer of hair,

from the temple to the crown, in

preparation for the placement

patterns. When sectioning off the

placement patterns, always work

with the models growth pattern.

Small

triangular section

Create a small triangular section on the right side of the

head. The base of the triangle should be at the top of

the head and the point towards the ear as the placement

is not to create length but to achieve a sharper point in

the final cut.

4

Large triangular section

Create a large triangular section on the left side of the

head, in a reversed angle to the right side. The base of

the triangle should be at the front of the head and the

point towards the crown, in order to create more weight

and hair at the front. Having a larger section on one side

will create a strong asymmetric angle to the finished

style..

extensions diagonally across from

angle. Ensure the rows are solid

Sectioning the hair

Before applying the extensions,

remove the weight line by cutting

into the perimeter, this will make it

easier to seamlessly blend the

extensions and natural hair. Point

cut the line of the cut, which is a

great way to prep hair for

extensions as it lightens the hairline

and creates texture, enabling the

extensions to blend naturally.

Section the hair into one offset

reversed triangle at the front of the

head, leaving a two finger gap from

the front of the hairline. The

asymmetric angle of the triangle

needs to be positioned with the

base of the triangle towards the

crown and the point of the triangle

at the temple.

Colour placement

Apply a blend of Plum and Claret Vibrant Euro Extensions (Racoon

colours E70 and E76) throughout the section in order to create a

dramatic colour placement.
