There’s nothing quite so heart-warming as being recognised and rewarded for your achievements. Imagine our delight to hear we’d won Lux Magazine’s award for Best Hair Extensions Products & Training Provider 2018. We’re absolutely delighted with this tribute!
At Racoon, we work our socks off and with obsessive attention to detail to ensure our products, education programme, trainers, staff, ambassadors – well, every aspect of the company – is totally top class and second to none.
Lux Magazine asked us what sets us apart from competitors. Well, let’s start with our unique Luxe Bond method – a loose hair system which allows a certified Racoonista to blend a mix of hair shades together to achieve the most natural of looks. An extensive colour palette means clients can have natural, multi-toned shades to seamlessly match their hair colour, and our exclusive colour matching service means salons can order bespoke blends of shades to identically match a client’s own.
Also unique is our exclusive Luxe Bonds bonding agent. Super kind to hair yet formulated to be strong and durable, it’s scientifically proven to not damage hair and is as easy to remove as it is to apply and the tiny bonds it creates (about the size of an uncooked grain of rice) are clear and discreet, making Luxe Bond extensions safe and secure, comfortable and unobtrusive.
Another unique aspect is our hair extensions programme for people suffering from medical or hormonal hair loss or those with very fine, thinning hair. Developed with top trichologist Iain Sallis, Hair in Recovery is a service involving the sensitive application of Luxe Bonds to affected sufferers who can have a great style to help regain confidence and boost self-esteem.
Also setting us apart from competitors is our Luxe Link system. Exclusive to Racoon, Luxe Links are the smallest links on the market, ideal for clients preferring a no-heat, no-adhesive system. Available in a great choice of colours, perfect for full head and partial applications, length or volume, they are comfortable to safely wear, are versatile and undetectable. A full head can be applied in just 90 minutes and safely removed in less than 30.
We could wang on for ages about what sets us apart but this nugget must be mentioned. Every hairdresser wanting to work with Racoon must attend our accredited compulsory training programmes and qualify as a certified Racoon extensionist before being able to buy and apply our products. And uniquely, Racoon systems and products have been tried and tested by a top trichologist who gave them his seal of approval, making them scientifically proven to keep natural hair safe and healthy. You see our obsession about the consistent quality of our hair, products, attachment systems, training courses and customer service is relentless. Just a few reasons why we won. Nuff said…
