Feather Extensions.

Feather extensions are one of my favorite trends born in Boulder, Colorado (a.k.a. party/hippy town USA). These are my third extensions that I have bought.  They are glued to the root of your hair just like a normal extension, and they last about 4 months.  You can also get them clamped into your hair which lasts about 1-2 months. They are my favorite accessory because you don't need to worry about them at all, and I am just dying to share it with the world.  It started in Boulder, and has since grown to northern Colorado and is somewhat known Denver.  I also recently bought a pair of feather earrings from a Boulder jewelry designer that I am in love with.  The first three pictures are of me, the other two are of two of my best friends, J & B.  They can be curled, washed, and brushed just like regular hair.   The striped ones are usually mistaken for braids from far away, but up close you can tell that they are feathers.  They have all different colors and you can choose the length, width, and color combination that you prefer.   Almost every salon in Boulder will do these for about $15 for 5 feathers, so my friends and I went to all get some before I left for Oz.

  4. oh wow! I love this! they look great...
    I didn't know they could be curled! I have super curly hair so it would be weird to have straight feathers sticking out.
    Good info, thanks!

  62. I'm glad that I have full thick hair and don't need extensions.
    Sometimes having lots of super thick hair is a pain in the butt,
    but I just can't ever imagine paying so much for some hair extensions.
