Feather extensions can be seen everywhere now. I love how it adds instant color to your hair.
I went to a carnival recently, and one of the booths was to get feather extensions. As I was watching the lady do it, I realized how simple and easy it was to do. Why should you pay so much when you can diy for a fraction of the cost?
- Feathers– I purchased my bag of feathers at Hobby Lobby for $1.99. There’s so many different colors, so pick ones that you liked and check to length to make sure their at least 2″ long. Plus, you can save additional cash with a Hobby Lobby coupon, which changes weekly! You can also go to sporting /fishing stores to look for the long rooster saddle feathers that are used in salons.
- Hair Extension Beads: I purchased my beads from Sally Beauty which retails for $14.99, but you can get discounted for $12.99 if you’re a member of the Sally Beauty Club. If you join the club, it costs $5, but you get your $5 right back in the form of a coupon. In addition, the beads come in an array of colors to match your hair color. If there’s no Sally by you, try searching on Etsy.
- Hair Extension Bead Threader: This tool will make adding the hair extension bead so much easier. I purchased mine from Etsy for only $1.25, not including shipping. I received it within 5 days and the product makes feather extensions so much easier to do.
- Pick out your feathers
- Add bead to the long end of the Hair Extension Bead Threader
- Put a small section of hair that you want to put the extension in through the loop side of the Threader.
- Push the bead to the end of the loop, and your hair should now be in the bead
- Add your feathers into the bead
- With the pliers, crimp the bead close so that the feathers will stay locked in the hair.
- Now you have a beautiful feather extension in your hair! Enjoy!
