Raccoon hair extensions or also known as “coon tail” hair extensions, have been very popular with “scene hairstyling” and in fact is quite an important element. They are great for every hair color and ideal for making colors pop and stand out. For example if you are a brunette, you can wear a blonde and black dyed raccoon hair piece so that the blonde will stand out for certain. Or if you are a blonde, just having the black stripes from the hair pieces is enough to draw attention to it.It is even more popular to wear bright colored dyed raccoon hair extensions such as hot pink and black striped pieces or turquoise and black striped ones.
Most scene hair teens dye their own raccoon hair extension pieces because they can have full creativity on color and it is also much cheaper than buying the hair extensions already featuring a raccoon design.
The blonde and black striped raccoon hair extension is the easiest to make because there is only one real step in creating it and that is painting the stripes with a black hair dye.
Even though the blonde and black raccoon hair extension is easier to make, the bright colored and black striped raccoon hair extensions are the ones more teens find to give their hairstyle an edge. Some popular colored raccoon hair extension pieces are either pink and black striped or a turquoise and black striped one.
