I never thought the feather extension trend would be for me...until I saw these! I got these from Picasso Hair Feathers, a 100% cruelty-free brand that sells a huge range of different colours and sets. The set I'm wearing is the Au Naturel 12 piece one for $29.95 and I absolutely love it! The colours are so natural and subtle that most people don't even realise I'm wearing them in my hair...in fact I've been asked a few times whether it's a tiny plait, ha ha! You guys know that I've never been that adventurous with my hairstyle so needless to say the hot pinks, turquoise/blues & bright purples aren't for me (although I do think they look pretty on other people...I just don't think I'd be able to pull them off!). So I think that this set is wonderful for people who want to play it safe but still have fun with the trend.
Obviously one of the main reasons I agreed to feature these on my blog is because they are cruelty free. I actually wasn't aware that there was any animal cruelty involved when it came to feather extensions...how awful is that?! So I urge you all to do your research on this and if you are looking to buy some I definitely recommend Picasso! They also ship internationally (for $8) and shipping to the US and Canada is free.
These extensions last up to 6 weeks, they are super easy to apply (video tutorial on that here!) and very low-maintenance which you guys know I love. You can wash your hair, brush it and style it like normal...just be careful not to use any heat over 180 degrees on your extensions. I have gotten so many compliments on these since I put them in last week and now my sisters and some of their friends are wearing them too!
Let me know what you think! Are you a fan of cruelty-free feather extensions? What colours would you wear in your hair?
