Why wait for beautiful hair?
Racoon Internationals market-leading portfolio of luxury hair extension systems
Any suggestion that our extensions are ‘glued in’ is so wrong. They are not! We spent loads of time and money researching the development of our incredible unique bonding product which creates totally safe, teeny-weeny bonds (about the size of an uncooked grain of rice.) It’s formulated to be strong and durable yet easy to remove. The exact composition of our bonding agent is our secret but primarily, it’s a mixture of resins including pine kernel and peach stone extracts. It creates bonds as easy to remove as they are to apply, as well as being scientifically proven to not damage hair – even fine, sparse hair and the delicate re-growing hair of those recovering from hair loss caused by chemotherapy. Be aware by all means of any scaremongering you may read in the press about the dangers of hair extensions – but rest assured, in the hands of a trained and certified Racoon extensionist – you are in very safe hands indeed.
BESPOKE COLOUR MATCHING SERVICE & BESPOKE LENGTHS
Racoon’s exclusive colour matching service means salons can order bespoke blends of shades to perfectly match the client’s own hair. In addition to bespoke colours we can also offer bespoke lengths. These are available to order but will have an extended lead time on delivery. Please speak to your Racoon stylist or call 01295 770999 option 1 for details.
LUXE BOND HIGHLIGHT & LOWLIGHT DAMAGE FREE COLOUR PACKS
Thanks to Racoon International’s Luxe Bond Highlight and Lowlight hair extension packs, colour benefits can be enjoyed safely and quickly, without the need for a patch test or chemical lifting. These fantastic highlight and lowlight packs are Racoon’s premium quality Euro hair and are ideal for clients who want to add volume and colour to their natural hair and perfect for those who do not require a full head of extensions. Racoon Luxe Bond colour extension packs mean instantly and safely enjoying a head of highlights or lowlights without any bleaching or colouring. Simply choose two or three colours from a choice of six shades, blond-based for highlights and brown-based for lowlights. Available in four hair lengths: 12”, 14”, 16” or 18”.
My go-to application is Racoon’s Luxe Bond system. I love this loose hair system where I can create a bespoke colour match and achieve a multi-tonal blend, placing individual bonds in a seamless pattern. I insist my clients return for a maintenance appointment every four to six weeks, so I can check all’s OK and rotate extension placements. I like to then remove and re-apply after three months. My salon clients are always thrilled with the result and can’t believe how small and discreet the bonds are. Always a joy to fit someone with Luxe Bond, they’re great.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Absolutely not, Racoon extension hair is not glued in. Our unique formula bonding material creates tiny bonds to secure extension hair to fine sections of your own hair. Easy to apply it is also quick to remove, leaving no trace or residue.
No. Keratin is formed from essential amino acids and is found naturally in skin, hair, nails, hooves, horns and teeth. If added to a bonding substance, keratin is unable to interact with hair as both are inert.
Unique to Racoon, the exact composition of our bonding is a closely guarded secret but essentially, it’s a mixture of resins including pine kernel and peach stone extracts. Our bonding is the kindest possible to hair and is formulated to be strong and durable yet easy to remove.
Your extensions will not slip out provided you correctly maintain and look after them.
The bonds created in Racoon’s Luxe Bond system are small and discreet, no bigger than the size of an uncooked grain of rice. They are also translucent, taking on the colour of the client’s own natural hair making our Luxe Bonds virtually undetectable. The unique formula of our bonding material is easy to apply and quick to remove, leaving no trace or residue.
Care must be taken not to get colour onto the bonds themselves but Luxe Bonds can be tinted, coloured or highlighted only by a Racoon International certified stylist especially trained in this specialised process. If colouring is carried out by a non-Racoon trained individual, the bonds may break down and invalidate your guarantee.
Top Tip: Colour during maintenance appointments.
Some hair extensions can seriously damage hair. However, Racoon International hair extension systems are scientifically proven by an independent trichologist not to damage hair provided they are applied and maintained by a Racoon-certified expert and the aftercare guidelines are followed. Luxe Bond extensions are applied weight for weight so there is no excessive strain on the hair making them kind, gentle and damage free.
No; provided they are removed and rotated every 4 to 6 weeks and the appropriate aftercare guidelines are followed, clients will not experience any matting or residue from Luxe Bonds.
Top Tip: separate your bonds every day – ideally two or three times a day. Use your fingers to gently tease apart any extensions which have ‘locked’ together. Neglecting to do this can lead to ‘dreadlocking’ where several hair extensions cling or ‘lock’ together.
Yes, very suitable as they will give marvellous volume and enhanced texture.
Top Tip: for clients suffering from medical hair loss or extremely fine or thinning hair your Racoonista may recommend our Luxe Bond Hair in Recovery system.
Racoon extensions are suitable for all hair types. Luxe Bonds are suitable for clients with oily hair (who tend to shampoo more frequently) and for sporty clients or those who regularly swim or visit the gym. Their hair will be cleansed with specially formulated Racoon X-Tend Detox shampoo before Luxe Bonds are applied.
Extensions removal must be carried out by a Racoon International certified stylist. Our unique removal process ensures your hair extensions can be removed quickly, leaving no trace, residue or damage to your natural hair.
