Feather Hair Extensions

14
Sort By

So I have been researching feather hair extensions for the past few weeks and it has become my obsession. HAHA. I have feather earrings and they are "ok". Its time to move to the extensions. I dont want clip-in. I dont really want to pay $45 for one extension. That is what they are charging around where I live. I see that I can buy a cluster of feathers for around $15 or go on Etsy and get them for cheaper. I know that I need to buy the tools as well.

Now my dilemma is that I am worried after spending the money, the extension wont stay in. I am worried that it will slip out. Has anyone tried to put the feather extensions in themselves yet (that dont have experience with putting extensions in)?

I am so excited about this trend. I want to go online TODAY and buy them but I dont want to waste money that I dont have. PLEASE... if anyone knows about this, please fill me in. Thanks!!!

Hi there, Rachael.

I feel the same as you about them. I think feather extensions are very cool and have been digging the idea for awhile now. I mentioned it on Twitter once, and someone sent me a tweet about their small business that focuses on feather extensions. After looking at pictures in her Tumblr and following her awhile, I decided I wanted to make a purchase because the prices were very reasonable -- definitely affordable. For $20 you get the curved pliers, threading tool, and 10 microbeads (that is what attaches them to your hair), and for another $20 you choose your extensions. All in all after s&h it comes to about $45 to get started.

If you want a visual for how to put the extensions in, watch the video on her tumblr: http://zeezoes.tumblr.com/feather-e... (It shows a microtube instead of a microbead but it is the same exact process).

Her tumblr for pictures of her product on actual customers + general people who have feather extensions is at http://zeezoes.tumblr.com and her actual Etsy shop is http://zeezoes.etsy.com if you want to take a look for yourself.

Just wanted to mention her because I am a big supporter of small businesses and when something like this is easy enough to do at home, and the supplies are affordable, I don't see why someone should go to a salon for it. Oh, and another thing, she is a member of Beautylish as well! Her name is Laura P on here :-)

Hope some of this helps,
Mandy

Thanks for all the info Mandy. I will take a look at the links. I dont need any of the tools... well maybe the pliers (but who doesnt have pliers in their house... haha). My friend is lending me her threading tool from when she tried to do her own extensions. So all I really need is the feathers. I am trying to spend as little as possible. I was on Etsy yesterday for 1/2 the day (when I should have been studying) and found a few great people who were selling them. But I will look into ZeeZoes too. Thanks for getting back to me. Have a wonderful day.

I ended up purchasing my extensions from Plumeuphoria. She just made a profile on beautlish. http://www.beautylish.com/profile/y...
I chose her extensions b/c she gave the option for the customer to customize their own feather bundle. I loved the fact that I could choose my own colors of the 5 feathers in the 5 in the bundle.
Thanks for everyones help!!!

I did my own. I just ordered feathers i liked and the little snaps and used some needle nose pliers. they last a long while but I get bored so I usually only keep mine in a couple days and switch it up with different types of feathers and such.
this pic is the first time I ever tried putting them in myself. 

Cute @Cassandra!!!

@Michelle I am looking for more feathers. But you are not from the US. So I am sure that shipping is more then other companies are charging... plus delivery is going to take longer. I am kinda impatient for these kinda things. haha. Plumeuphoria has great feathers, but I think I want to try a different company this time. I want to give other companies equal opportunities since I am putting it on my blog.

I got my first set feathers from Plumeuphoria (http://www.plumeuphoria.com/index.h...), I got the 3 feather bundle for $13.99(with 3 micro links), great price and shipped to me super-fast! The feathers are great quality but I won't be ordering again because the feathers weren't long enough, I can only wear them at my bangs. This is my bad for not looking to see feathers range from 5" to 12". All three of mine were about 6" but I really liked the option to choose your colors!

Then I ordered from Zeezoes (http://www.etsy.com/shop/zeezoes), I got the Pink Feathers 7 for $20 (with one micro link). Even though you don’t get too choose every color you can trust you going to get a great blend of colors! Mine came with a pink grizzly, solid pink, classic grizzly, solid white, burgady, tan and brown. The longest feather was 12” and shortest was 8” and all in between. I plan to purchase again!

Last but not least I ordered extra micro links from Do Hair Extensions (http://www.dohairextensions.com/fea...), 10 micro links for $1.99. This seemed to but the cheapest I could find, shipping was fast as well.

Hope this helps anyone else looking for feathers! :)

I ordered from a different company. I have not rcvd them yet. I was browsing the internet last night and came across this website http://luckyfeatherhead.com
They have a feather extension (7 feathers) called perfect peacock. I love the colors. This bunch is a mix of blues, teal, pinks and purples. The shipping was a bit expensive but I could not pass this feather extension up. I know that they have a shop on etsy as well but they were sold out of this bunch of feathers. There shipping is less money if you are willing to wait. I cant wait to get these in my hair. This will be the 4th bundle I have in my hair. I guess you can say I am obsessed. I think this might be the last. HAHA. MAYBE!!!

Haha I am right there with you, obessed! I also just got groupon coupon for $15(normally $30) for 5 feathers at a salon pretty close to my house! But omg those perfect peacock feathers are soooo pretty, ahhh I want!

That is CHEAP!!! I would die for a deal like that around here. I would be getting so many feathers in my hair. I will take a picture once I get my new feathers. I will probably have it on my blog. I might put it on here too (you never know). But if you want to check out my blog over the next week or so that would be awesome!

Plume4You offers awesome custom feather hair extensions! You get to pick the color of every feather you purchase, which is awesome because you don't get stuck with whatever someone bundles! super fast shipping and you can even request lengths if you want super long feathers! http://www.plume4you.com/

@amanda... I got the feathers today. At first glance they are beautiful, but when you look closer one of the feathers has black dye marks. They were all supposed to be hackle (but 1 of them is not). I am still happy with it. I love love love the colors. I love the way the teal looks on blonde hair.

P.S. Sorry for the big picture. I coulnt figure out how to make it smaller.

Oh... and I will blog about it in a few days after I wash my hair and blow it dry (a few times).

As a Stylist I put feathers in and let me tell you people are obsessed! All these feathers are a pure rooster saddle feathers that are died. The biggest rooster feather company's inventory is exhausted. Which is why Feather ext, websites sell them for for much. I am going to start retailing them here soon I got my hands on A LOT and am dying them myself!

Try going to your local Fly Fishing Shop ( but chances are they are sold out as well)

@Janelle... there are no fly fishing stores near me. Fly Fishing is not big where I live (Southern New Jersey). I am waiting for my local beauty supply store to get them in. I do get a discount there (just not a huge one). But I am on the list to get called as soon as they get to the store. I just want them for myself. I have 4 bundles in now and its not enough. It has become a serious addiction. haha
