Fashion Friday: Feather Extensions

There is a trend that I have only ever seen in Reno at this point in time.  The leasing agent at our apartment community has a few feather pieces in her hair and after close examination/ruling out bird $h*t, I realized that this was a new trend that would probably be popping up everywhere in the near future.  Sure enough, I go to a job interview a couple of days ago...and THERE THEY ARE, but in LIME GREEN this time? 
The girl sitting next to me at the interview is a hair stylist and said that they are a cheap and easy way to accessorize your hair and the best part is that they can be washed, curled and are simply clipped in to your hair at the roots.  They will do the same things that your natural hair do, just with a bit more color and the ability to pull them out/switch colors when you wish.  The verdict is out as to whether or not I will be adding these to my luscious locks, but they are quite fun to spot and look at. 
Should I try them out???


  1. I saw these in California today in a ladies hair at an antique store! I'm not a fan so far, but I bet you could pull it off.

  2. I have a friend who has had them put in twice in the last few months. Her's are beautiful and understated (by the base of hair rather than right on top). This fashion can be done really well. I like it a lot. However, I'd probably stay away from the lime green. Yikes.

  3. I think those look really cool if you have the personality to pull off that kind of stuff in general. In my younger days, I would have totally done it. Now my hair is sorely neglected.
