    You haven’t gotten a hair feather extension yet? Why not??  It’s time to be thinking about great back to school hair styles and tips . . . this year definitely think feathers as an accessory for your hairdo!

    Hair feathers may only have been available for purchase at a few of your local edgier hair salons a few months ago . . . but now a majority of salons can get you feathered quickly and for a reasonable price!  If you have a knack for working with hair, you can buy feather extensions online and with a few instructions, apply your own feather creations for your own feather hairstyles!

    The feather trend was fueled by some of Hollywood’s more outrageous, untamed types, like Johnny Depp, my favorite pirate, and American Idol favorite Steve Tyler.

    At the Premiere Orlando International Hair Show in June, the feather extensions were a huge hit. “They drew crowds for the entire 3 days of the show,” reported Modern Salon, “though some starter kits sold out within just hours.”  Hair feathers have caught fire and women everywhere are embracing the sultry, sexy look of feathers in their hair!  Rooster feathers are particularly hot now.

    Who can wear hair feathers?

    Hair feather extensions can be adapted to fit all hair types.  The feathers are real, not synthetic, so they can be washed, blow dried or curled with an iron to blend into curly hair. They also can be cut, short, medium or long, to blend in with all hair lengths.

    How long will they last? Can I reuse them?

    When beaded onto your hair as an extension (vs. clip-in) the extension can last from 4 to 8 weeks before needing to be re-threaded. With good care the quality of your feathers will last for months and you will be able to reuse them.  Be careful and go light on the heat of your styling tools and they will last for months.

    How much do they cost? Where can I find them?

    Salons in my area of Minneapolis, St. Paul, are charging $10.00 to $15.00 for one feather extension beaded in to your hair. A great resource to find a salon near you that does this service is

    If you are a DIY’er a 10 feather pack will normally run you around $15.00 to $25.00. But you will also need some tools to attach your feathers. Other sources are or where you may find feather packs of 10 for $12.00 or more.  The feather packs come in all different colors and some include a bead pack for attachment. Make sure the bead is a fit for your hair color.

    How do you apply hair feather extensions?

    There are plenty of videos available on how to apply hair feather extensions. Here’s one that I think you’ll like. Just in time for the perfect back to school hair accessory! So what are you waiting for? Go out and get feathered!
