HOW TO: Use Extensions To Create A Dramatic and Exciting Fringe

HOW TO: Use Extensions To Create A Dramatic and Exciting FringeAt the most recent ARTIST SESSION, Jen Dozier, owner of the Bombshell Salon in Ellicott City, Maryland, decided she wanted to place a fringe on her model. "Unless your model already has an existing fringe," says Dozier, "you have to create it with either a piece or extensions." Dozier chose to create her fringe with extensions "because I wanted to have more control with the color and placement. While I love the new faux fringes out there, this is a great way to get exactly what you want for the perfect finished look."

Dozier selected Hairdreams "Quikkies" to complete her look. "They are so wonderful," she said of the tape in pieces. "I am layering throughout the hair, and after the shoot I will just remove them so that the model can leave with the same hair she came with!"

To get the best end result, Dozier emphasizes that the stylist should always keep the end look in mind while placing extensions.... and that the extensions should be placed in a bricklayer fashion or on a diagonal for a more natural look.

Check out this video (a bit more than 2 minutes) to see how Dozier uses extensions to create a dramatic and fun fringe and keep your eyes peeled for the big REVEAL of the end result in an upcoming issue!

Marianne Lohr (@mannie_mak), a freelance artist based in Bethlehem,PA., says "My new client came in to see me because she was never happy with her blonde and how gold/yellow it was. She wanted to be an all over platinum blonde at first, but then had mentioned how she's always wanted to have purple hair. Her dream came true that day." Details here.
