Or so spoke my fearless companion the first morning I slept on my amazing, fantastical, super hip n' trendy new FEATHER EXTENSIONS!!!
So I first caught wind of this lil' trend via Birchbox's Facebook, and that same day was contacted by a girl who is set up to do these hair extensions... and that weekend attended the Makeup Show LA, where I saw TONS of them live and in person.
So what ARE they? They're real feathers attached to your hair usually by a bead, and they can be washed, flat ironed, curled, whatever. They come in all different lengths, widths, styles and colors, and can be worn alone or in a groupings. Here are mine:
As "installed" by the fabulous Shelly of the Azalea Salon (949.248.3406 and http://www.azaleasalonandboutique.com/). I have two bundles of about four feathers each clamped up in there, and I LOVE 'em! And Shelly has been putting them in bangs and short hair and long hair and they're just so much fun... especially for spring and summer. :)
So there's a little something fun I'm loving this week. The other thing I've been reaching for all week is my LUSH Lemony Flutter in an attempt to salvage my tragic-looking, raggedy-ass cuticles. Who knew that a steady stream of hair and beauty products would be so rough on my grubby lil' paws? Sigh.
