Like of the Week: Feather Extensions Are the Newest Trend to Hit Hair
They’re slowly infiltrating magazines, runway shows and city streets. Even celebs are finding these new extensions hard to resist.
Yes, feather extensions just might be this Summer/Spring’s biggest hair trend. These light and airy hair additives are not only eye-catching in an off-beat and fun way, but you can also treat them just as you would your own tresses – meaning they can be cut, curled, and styled just as you normally would.
Though it might seem like a tricky trend at first it can also be surprisingly versatile. Mostly made from the feathers of Roosters, these exotic extensions can be naturally dyed in an array of bold colors so the look can go from subtle to striking. Whether you opt for one, a few, or a whole section, these are sure to add some pop and pizazz to your hair and can even be worn by men.
If you’re in the NYC area there are a few salons that cater to this new trend, such as the Wendy Nichol Studio on Sullivan Street and Salon V in the East Village. The process is easy, taking about only 10 minutes with the feathers lasting in hair for up to 6 weeks. If the DIY approach is your style, there are also a variety of feathers to choose from on Etsy.com that come with in-depth instructions on how to attach them.
So take advantage of this new and exciting hair trend that’s sure to amp up your locks.
This goes under bizarre and just plain gnarly! I know my fair share of cat people and I myself have nothing against felines but this just seems like it teeters into the WTF zone for me.
Talented jewelry designer Heidi Abramson decided to celebrate the obscure National Hairball Awareness Day (don’t feel bad, it’s not marked in any of my calendars either) by using some of her own cat’s precious purged and up-heaved fur to shape and create some rather, err, original jewelry.
Yup, you read that right – hairball necklaces, earrings and cocktail rings to be exact. Okay, I’ll give her points for creativity but the thought of wearing something on my body that my own cat has vomited up is just a little too much.
Eh, to each their own, I suppose. However, is it just me, or does this cat look super pissed? He probably feels exploited. Although I’m not too proud to admit that I’d be pretty upset if I were a cat and my owner was making shit out of my disgarded fur balls too.
The nerve. I’m sorry, Heidi. Apologies, Kitty… but this is a FAIL.
