ALL ABOUT BEAUTY: Fashion Forward Feathers

Fate was on my side for my very first All About Beauty expose. In a fortunate stroke of serendipity, I stumbled upon today’s featured Fashionista personifying beauty in all its glory. She covered all the beauty bases: long, thick hair twisted in the ever-trendy side braid, electric azure eyeshadow to compliment her ocean-blue eyes, and lanky limbs that could make any piece of clothing fit just right. But leave it to this beauty savvy Fashionista to kick it up a notch, past these elementary beauty basics, with her feather hair extension.

Feather extensions hit the fashion scene in mid January when celebrities such as Miley Cyrus, Jennifer Love Hewitt, Selena Gomez and Hilary Duff sported the feather’s boho-chic look. Soon after, salons around the country were selling out of this fashion forward hair accessory. Its appeal is obvious – a feather’s soft color palette integrates flawlessly with long locks of hair while also adding spice to even the simplest hairdo. The key to pulling off the look is having a subtle feather that will act like just another wisp of hair. This Fashionista did just that with her understated, grey-blue feather that has flippantly flown out from her kempt braid.

Urban Outfitters carries a sizable selection of hair feather extensions that are both adorable and affordable. My three favorite are the Beaded Feather Hair Extension, Feather & Chain Hair Clip and Mixed Chain & Feathers Hair Extension.
