Feather Hair Extensions

The newest fashion trend is Feather Hair Extensions. I had no idea what they were, my mom knew about them before I did. About 2 weeks ago I saw them with my own eyes. They are kinda a Bohemian, earthy, fashion trend. Its better to see a picture than me try to explain them.

They come in a variety of colors and designs. Some blend in while others look like a fishing lure.

Its not a trend I will probably start participating in. Its not because I believe that birds are being raised and killed just for this new fashion trend as mention in an article I just read.  The feathers are a by- product of the birds and in some cases the feathers are those that have been "dropped or shed." (the bird is still alive). I'm sure you will start hearing about people boycotting and getting upset over this new fad. I don't believe that there are farms raising birds, mostly chickens for hair extensions.  I personally believe that this one of the uses for feathers when a bird is used for meat consumption. Why waste, isn't society pushing for recycling?


  1. I have heard about this! Bet have yet to see it. I don't think I care to have feathers in my hair!

  2. I think it's really pretty, but being in my 30's, I think I'll steer clear and let the "kids" enjoy this fad.
