Video Blog: Alison's 1-minute Feather Extension Tip

By Alison Alhamed | 08/25/2011 9:32:00 AM


Hey guys! I was getting ready for work this morning—flatironing my hair, of course—and I noticed my feather extensions were looking kind of stringy. Here's a quick look at how I fluffed them up! Very simple solution that makes a big difference.


1. Clip the rest of the hair out of the way, isolating the extension.

2. Begin at the bottom of the feather, and use fingers to "backcomb" the feather in the opposite direction it naturally goes.

3.  Use hairspray to reinforce the direction of the feather.

4. Smile,  because you're done!
