“In this image the model had medium-length hair, and I wanted it to resemble a side-swept fringe in the front,” Roche says. “I used both warm and cool blonde tones in the hair that was woven through her own hair.”

A contrast of color was used<br />to create more interest in the hair. The model’s natural hair was left down and a wig wrap was used to create a hair headband. “The pieces stitched across the head that drop in the front are wefts stitched into the model’s natural hair,” Roche says.
