How to do FEATHER HAIR EXTENSIONS

To know me is to know my love of feather earrings...ha ha ha (especially from my friend Cardi..click here to see her awesome earrings...www.cardi-love.blogspot.com)...
but then
feather hair extensions came out and I thought I'd give em a try!


They are fun, fast, and super easy to put in your hair.
It's like getting highlights in your hair without damaging your hair!


Here's what you need...
CRIMPING BEADS: (as seen being held by yours truly..above)
these are the best...they come in different colors and have silicone inside to protect your hair and make them last longer...
(you cannot reuse these..once you remove the crimp beads, they are done! ha ha)
I got mine (and all my feather hair tools at: www.famousfeathers.com)
CRIMPING PLIERS (or plain ol' pliers will get the job done too!)
PULLING HOOK...to get the crimping bead on your hair...
FEATHERS ( minus the weird face I am making in this picture! ha ha ha)
you can get all kinds of colors and premade bundles of feathers at famous feathers too!)
And voila! this is with my hair flipped up all weird to show you....but watch below to see how to get yourself all feather FABULOUS! hee hee


feathers and fabulousness...your friend kandee

What a cool little tutorial Kandee! I can see how they could get addictive. Wonder how they'd look in my wavy hair? Thanks once again for sharing Kandee - you are definitely a giver in life!! Haha Lots of <3 from Lou in the UK xx

Thank you Kandee! This is a huge trend and I wasn't sure how to go about doing it on myself...Love you!

I got mine shortly after I saw your video! haha copy cat! but really I loved the idea and have had the same style of hair for so long that I thought I would be fun and less time consuming that highlights. I love love love them and they really do stay in quite nice. I just want more. I only put in 4 when I and have noticed that even though I have thin fine hair that my hair still covers them up. But I tried to find the sadle feathers in my area (Cheyenne, WY) and they were very expensive. lol I also walked into a fly fishing shop and the gentleman though very nice and even interested said that I should probubly not tell other fly fisherman I was getting them to put in my hair becuase they would probubly shoot me lol. Hick town dummies! Oh well. I'm enjoying them and they can just deal! :)>

Jewelz said...

They look very nice. I might get some in pink. Wish they had glittery ones.

Soooooo amazing! Because of you I totally fell in love with feather-y things! haha I've just bought a pair of turquoise feather earrings! :)they really go with all my clothes!

Amelia Kitzul said...

:O sooooo cool! I like these kinds so their not permanent, its cool how you can take them out! Do you have to like take them out often? like when you sleep and shower and stuff like that or will that ruin them? So cool kandee! ♥

aliGRRRL said...

omg KANDEE! You are my hero! I love you for doing this!! I've been looking into getting feather hair extensions, but I had questions on how to apply them, so THANK YOU for doing this tutorial :D
<3ali.

P.S: When I shower, will they get all puffy & fluffy? Or will they go back to normal?

Brandy said...

Boooo!! They dont ship to Canada! I hope I can find them here somewhere!!!!

vaznshortie523 said...

SO AWESOME! My parents are against me dyeing my hair, even though I'm 20! But this is definitely a sweet alternative.

Gabriela said...

I looooove this!! Unfortunetely I live in South America and no shipping here :(

Shaila said...

Great...I guess I will have the same problem as shawnaelephant. Good ole Wyoming (Laramie) hahaha

Ariel2010 said...

I can not wait to get some of these:) Thanks for sharing.

Ali said...

Kandee!!! I went on famousfeathers.com and they didn't really have a whole lot of options for colours, is there somewhere on the site I am missing that has the nice torquoise and pink colours you had???

Also I am super bummed because they don't seem to ship to Canada!! Do you have suggestions for Canadian feather hair extension websites??

You're amazing and I love you!!!!

Cool feather-y hair at the cost of many factory farmed, birds life..... yeah, not cool...

Capitalism never fails!

fleew said...

I loved it. It is a pity that here in Argentina I didn't hear about them. Can I buy everything I need online? Do you know of any website?


best wishes,

Urška said...

oooh, so sad, they don't ship to europe (well they do in the uk, but i'm not from there :( )

i rly liked them, can't get them anywhere around here :(

This is such a lush accessory! The problem with me is that I have boy short hair so you'd see the bead/clip in my hair, but as soon as my hair is long enough I am going to invest in these babies!! X

*Treen said...

Kandee! Thanks for this video! I've been wanting to do my own for a while! So sad though I checked Famous Feathers and they are ALLL SOLD OUT! :( Any other sites you'd reccommend? Thanks!

shaktastic5 said...

Kandee random question: what if you buy feathers from a fishing store like your friend Beth had said, how are you supposed to put like a tip at the top of them to be able to put them in the bead? Like that skinny tip you said you may cut off? Just wondering. [=

And also where else can I find the feathers? Becauase they're all sold out at famous feathes. I have butt lenght, thick curly hair and they would look soo cool on me! =/ Please help. <3 [=

Danielle said...

I've been wanting to do these for FOREVER. They're so cute with you and your style, Kandee!
I would get them myself, but I can't until summer because there's a girl in one of my classes who thinks I'm copying her style already based on the fact that I wear my combat boots all the time. Even though they both ARE *MY* style too. I apologize for us having similar tastes, Miss Primm :P
But I'm excited because I AM gonna have them before I go to Europe. I think against my red hair, they're gonna look awesome!

Jessie said...

Check our Plume4You, they offer great custom extensions! No bundles, you get to pick every single feather!

Angela said...

Hi Kandee I was wondering which feathers would look best for red hair??

Heather said...

The the best prices and free shipping on feather hair extensions at http://www.heathersfeathers.us. We have salon kits too!

shaktastic5 said...

Kandee what's up with the website dohairextensions.com? They keep saying they're going to re-stock on Facebook but they don't! I really want to purchase from them because I trust them because you purchased feathers from them. ^___^
