I purchased some feather hair extensions online a few months ago. I loved the look of them, but when I took them out, they took out a lot of the hair they were attached to (they were attached to my hair with a small clamp). Haven't used them since, but may put some in at a later time.
If it's something you want to try, you should! If you're concerned about it being "too young" you can try using feathers that are neutral in colour (tan, brown, grey, black).
Funny you mention that, I just wrote a hub on the issue. Thousands and thousands of roosters are loosing their lives for these feathers... all in the name of vanity. It irks me to no end. If you're gonna get feathers in your hair, get SYNTHETIC ones.
Don't rain on my parade everyone. One person has to be on my side. They are six inches long and less than one inch wide. It is hardly noticeable. A hubber wrote a hub with beautiful pictures of feathers on people. I guess it is up to the individual. lol People think it is a huge feather, I guess. I will have to read the hub woodscribe43.
Thanks! I just ordered some more synthetic ones today to put in some of my girls' friends hair. In fact, the synthetic ones are less fragile... they don't rip or tear as readily. I appreciate the fact that you read the hub.
honestly i dont really care so much for them some people it looks really nice tho but its just a fad so eventually no one will do it anymore, i personally dont like it it looks nice with a few but ive seen people wit 10 and it's just to overdone but i say a few is okay! and only if synthtic because does anone really need a real one in their hair?
I think it's a fad that's not really a fad, but mainstream is trying to make it gain traction to earn $$$. I have yet to see one person wear a feather in their hair, besides on the infomercial. Now pajama jeans, that's a whole different story!
