Every time I come across someone wearing feather extensions in their hair, I immediately FREAK out over them and have to stalk them to find out where they got them done. They are absolutely adorable!
I first heard about them when MODERN's Associate Editor Lauren Salapatek wrote a story on modernsalon.com a few months ago... and it was love at first sight. Then, I wrote a piece on the feather extensions for MODERN's Style Watch section two months ago. THEN, my sister Dana came into my salon to get a hair cut and was rockin' one. Since then, I have been on the HUNT for them!
Every time I take a picture of someone wearing the extension and post it on MODERN's Facebook, you guys go nuts for them. "Where can we get them" "How much do you charge?" "How long do they last?" So, it's clear, this is sure to be the next biggest thing to help boost your tickets AND it takes MINUTES to apply!
Here, my friend Dominique paired her feather extensions with a cute flower clip, here's what you had to say on Facebook about how much to charge, how to apply, and how much you love them!
