Pastel Pops Of Color + Point-Cut Lob With Extensions

Pastel pops of color and a point-cut lob doesn’t sound like the typical look created with extensions, but that doesn’t mean it’s not possible! We’re breaking the common misconception that applying extensions can only result in longer locks that match your client’s current hue. With the new Pops Of Color from hairtalk® extensions, add soft or bold shades of color quickly and without the typical commitment that fashion colors bring.

 

Watch the video below and get the steps for this peekaboo color and cute cut from hairtalk® educator Jaqui Figueroa (@hairplay_byjacquie)—it’s the perfect look for spring!

    To start, begin at the nape and work upward, applying and completing the first 3 to 4 rows of extensions using the client’s natural color. Then, when approaching the sides of the head, begin incorporating Pops Of Color.
