Feather Hair Extensions

During my trip to Valencia, my best friend introduced to me feather hair extensions. She said a bunch of hair stylists in the valley have recently been wearing them and I instantly fell IN LOVE. So ya know, I just had to get one.


(indian princess? i was playing dress up, ha..)
Returning home, I did my research and found that it's not just a valley girl thing, but they've been popping up across the country. Mainly college towns in Colorado & Oregon, but due to blogging and companies selling the feathers to salons they're definitely going to become more popular.






They typically run at salons anywhere from $25-$50, depending on how many feathers you get put in. The one I have right now is a single "bulk" that consists of 6 multi-colored feathers. They come in a variety of colors ranging from neutrals to neon pinks and greens.


Oh, and did I mention you can wash, straighten and curl them?! YUP! They're supposed to last about 4-6 months, depending on care.

Clip in feather hair extensions are being sold around the web.. but I'm not really a fan, clips can be extremely annoying and harder to conceal. These ones are bonded to several strands of hair with a crimping bead that gets smashed with the crimping tool. It only takes about 5 minutes to put in and will grow out with your hair (or you can slowly remove it.)




A bunch of girls were asking me where I got mine today and I'll be making a bulk order purchase tonight so I can supply them, and put in more for myself!

HELLO TREND for 2011!

what size crimp bead do you use. And is sterling or gold better than the other?

These are awesome! I'm from Austin and they are absolutely blowing up there. I go to school in Arizona now and am trying to get it going here as well. I'm in LOVE with the feathers in my hair - I can't get enough! I only wish I could get some of the really big feathers, not just thin colorful ones, but alas I may just have to wait for more salons to get into it here!

I have a couple questions...

So do you put these in yourself? Or does someone put them in for you? Love it.

Also, I love your soundtrack on here, but wish I could see the names of the songs playing! Am I just totally not seeing it and its on the page somewhere?

Wow, totally loving these. I made my own feather hair piece a few months ago with an old shirt (ripped into long skinny pieces), twine, and feathers. I love it but it's an outfit piece, not a daily wear piece. But these ones are awesomely cute! I want some, but I work in a dental office so I don't think it would fly to wear it everyday!

feather hair extensions are more affordable and easy to use. but, I prefer to use normal hair extensions in our daily life.
