Birds of a feather

Feathered hair extensions:
Spring fashion frenzy

This spring, you hair can go the birds. Literally. According to Jess Zaino, uber cool style blogger at Glamour, weaving in feathers to your hair are all the rage in SoCal, and the trend is spreading its wingspan all over the country.

It started with Steven Tyler, of all places, seen below rocking feathers on American Idol.

No, that's not a skunk. It's a bird!

So how did this trend begin? Malibu sisters started Fine Feather Heads to embrace their bomhemian lifestyle. What began as simple hair extensions, blossomed into braiding 100 percent all-natural bird feathers into hair. Now it's a national business, selling as far as Florida and New York City.

Feather hair extensions & Clip-In accessories

According to Fine Feather Heads' Facebook page, they use only the "highest quality REAL feathers from farm raised birds... in a variety of colors from blue, red, even wild hot pinks and purples to natural colors like golden-rod and tigers-eye.

Installation takes less than a couple minutes, with no damage to hair. And, they can be brushed, blow-dried, straightened and curled!

You can purchase a single feather in different colors or a bundle of feathers online and do your thing. You'd think these feathers would be a fly by night thing, but once they're washed, they evidentally become one with your hair and last for months.

Pretty cool, if you ask me. And it totally beats that weird hair tinsel fad of a few months back.
