Feather Hair Extensions

Vissa Studios
      One of my favorite rising trends at the moment are feather hair extensions. I first started noticing them in fashion blogs and when I found out my hair stylist had some available, I really wanted to try them out. I ended up getting two thin black and white feathers that contrasted nicely against my brown hair. Lately I have been noticing other girls trying them out and I think they are super cute! I've seen everything from rocker chicks with neon pink feathers to boho girls with brown, natural looking feathers.

     The great thing about feather extensions is that they are like temporary highlights. You can get any color, thickness, or length and they won't damage your hair like dye would. You can leave them in for one day or for about a month depending on your preference and how well you take care of them. They can be brushed (just be careful not to brush the metal piece at the top holding it in), blow-dried, straightened, and curled which is great because you can style them along with the rest of your hair. If you want, you can even apply them yourself if you order your own feathers and the proper tools. This way, you can avoid paying high salon prices.
     Hope you like them as much as I do!
