One of the hottest hair fashion trends that seem to be gaining popularity is having awesome feathers attached to your natural hair as a type of extension. This fashion trend was believed to have been started by teenage girls and has grown to be a global fad. While the colour variations seen are as multi-coloured and ever changing as the people who wear them, there are basically two different ways to attach the feather extensions to your hair. If you’re looking for a way to quickly add a pop of colour to your hair, like the rich and famous do, you can either have the procedure done at a hair salon or you can save money by doing it yourself.
The great thing about putting awesome feathers in your hair is they don’t cause damage. Feathers are less permanent than dyes or hair pieces, but just like a hair piece or your natural hair, they can be washed, dried and even curled. There are two basic methods of adding the feather extensions to your hair – they can either be attached to strands of hair near the root with a loop of micro-fibre and a bead or they can be clipped in.
Where to have them Applied
There are quite a number of hair salons that have begun offering feather hair extension placement as part of their services. There are also dozens of hair supply companies both on line and off line that sell not only these awesome feathers in a rainbow of colours and colour combinations, but the tools to do your own feather hair extensions.
With the right tools and by following a few simple instructions, you can clip, snip and place your own pops of colour in your hair. According to the feather extension sales sites, with a little bit of practice, the average person can after a few applications, become quite the expert at preparing and placing awesome feathers in their or their friend’s hair in a matter of minutes.
The tools that are needed to place feathered hair extensions are basically feather bundles, silicone micro beads, scissors, needle nosed pliers and a great deal of patience. The beads are used to make a loop through with the micro-fibre on the end of the feather bundle, a section of your hair is pulled through the loop, the bead clamped down with the needle nosed pliers and voila – you have feathers in your hair for a subtle or boldly coloured fashion statement.
These awesome feathers are taking the fashion industry by storm. What colour and style will you choose?
