Great ideas for those who are having second thoughts whether to buy feather extension or not. For women who are not quite sure, then read eindianhair reviews. http://segment.com/eindian-hair-reviews-trends-and-styles-presented-at-international-beauty-show

I think it looks good on certian people. Agreed with the Steven Tyler thing, it looks a little weird on him lol But he looks great for his age ;)

I've been curious about this trend for a while, but, alas, I am not bold enough for a semi-permanent extension. I love your D.I.Y. idea! It's an awesome alternative to extensions!

lovely article! i first started seeing these a little while ago and loved them and wanted one...in the ensuing months i saw more and more and more girls with feather extensions and, i hate to say it but, it made me change my mind...i think there comes a time when a trend hits its peak and then looses its chic.

I'm down with the feather extensions. But I think Steven Tyler has 1000% more style than Kesha.
Smash86 on June 09
That is so true.

I prefer the loose feather ones on ropes like you made (i think rumi/fashiontoast had her hair with fluffier feathers like that before which was nice), the long stringy kind on lucy hale isn't my cup of tea though. it looks kind of awkward.

I think feathers are beautiful, but I'm biased because I just started making feather accessories :P If you're nervous about feather extensions, feather earrings and hair clips are definitely a way to try the trend out. http://www.etsy.com/shop/FeathersAndGlamour Check me out :)

it definately depends on the style of clothes you wear, but i LOVE feathers. however, the longer feathers look much more chic.

im actually in between. sometimes it looks good and sometimes it looks tacky. i agree that the feather should be more natural and compliment the hair color of the wearer.
maymaylove on April 05
but i absolutely love how you did your clip! i love the added turquoise and silver beads. it adds the perfect touch to it. very chic. i also love GrayHewAnimal's look.

I think it's very chic! It can go with a variety of styles and looks very pretty! Unfortunately I detest Kesha...she's a grotty horrible example for young women everywhere... :( but otherwise, this whole article was really great! You should have featured the feather ear cuffs over at Style Hurricane, they're gorgeous!
TheLittlestUnicorn on April 09
ditto your kesha remarks!
maryiangge on April 05
i seen this on free people and they giving out for free if you buy $50 worth of stuff in their store. i think its chic!
loveliveandgive on April 05
tacky! anything that reminds me of Burningman is not chic. period.
railophone on April 05
Chic! I love the trend!

Chic! I loved it when I saw it on Seventeen Magazine.

I ABSOLUTELY love feathers, so feather extensions are in the same boat. Definitely going to attempt my own extension :)
