Is it ethical to wear the new "feather extensions?"I had this discussion with a stylist friend of mine... what do you think?
Before answering whether it is ethical or not, let me tell you that I believe in natural beauty.
Personally, I find the look to be a little over the top...However, on the topic of whether or not it's ethical, I believe it's unethical. This is a matter of personal opinion, but I think it's a heinous thing to do to birds for the sake of terrible fashion.
I believe that most of the feather extensions available are lab created so there should be no issue of ethics here. Now if people pluck the feathers and then wear then there is a different story.
I hadn't really thought of it that way before. If they are indeed using real feathers (which I doubt), the birds were probably not harmed in anyway. Birds lose feathers all the time.
This is not an accessory that I utilize.But, to those who think first of cruelty to animals.........I can tell you that all species of poultry, shed their feathers, just as your dog, or even you, sheds hair.Do not assume that there is a cruelty to animals violation.The woman in the photo manages to look " exotic", while, I would merely look " stupid". I could say the same thing for dark eyeliner and lipstick.

Do men wear hair extensions?I have heard of hair extensions for women, but not sure whether men wear them.
