I'm so excited about today's post--feather hair extensions!! If you follow me on twitter you may have seen me tweet about getting feather hair extensions about a month or two ago; it was a spur of the moment decision. I was going to get my hair cut and while I waited there was binder full of feather hair extensions, so of course I flipped through it and ended up wanting them! Here's what mine look like:
I wanted them to be very subtle, not like I had a bird in my hair, since I wasn't sure how I felt about them yet. I just got two strands, one that's lighter than my hair and one that's darker. I put them together on the top layer of my hair.
Here's the breakdown of what I think of them:
Manageability: They are actually SUPER easy to manage! You can wash, dry and style them just like your regular hair, and they hold a curl pretty well also! You can brush right over them and the little clamp that holds them in and they don't move or get messed up or anything. I forget the feathers are there sometimes!
Price: I know these can range, depending on where you get them. They sell DIY kits at Claire's and online starting at like $2, but I'm not sure of the quality of those. At my salon, they were $10 per strand, so for the two I got put in it was $20. To me, this is a lot to spend on something like feathers in your hair, but they've lasted a long time and hold up very well! Other salons charge different amounts for their feathers, depending on how many you get put in and where you get it done. Make sure to call ahead and ask if you're thinking about getting them, you don't want to get there and have them charge you a ridiculous price!
Selection: Depending on where you're going to get the feathers and how much you're willing to spend, there is a huge selection out there. You can get neutral colors (like I did) or bright colors. You can also pick your thickness and length to your preferences.
I hope you all enjoyed this post!! Like I said, I'm obsessed with my feather extensions, they're very subtle but still add a little spice to your hair. I might consider getting a couple more spread throughout my hair, but I'm not sure about it yet. I hope I answered all of your questions, but if you have anymore, let me know! :)
