Creating your own feather hair extensions is not at all as complicated as some people may think. All you need is the right tools and to know how to use them. What you are going to need is four things; silicon lined micro rings for hair extensions, hair extension hooking tool, clamping tool (could be any small or medium sized pliers) and of course hair extension feathers. Ok so the whole process is really simple, first thing place a micro ring on the shaft of the hair extension hooking tool. Now decide where you want to put the feather extension in your hair. Take a few strands of hair and twist them together so that they are all even and stuck together. Open the latch on the hair extension hooking tool so that it`s like an open scissor and place the twisted piece of hair in the angle of the hooking tool. Then pull the ring up the shaft of the tool, this will then close the latch which will hold the hair in place and allow you to pull it through the ring. Hold the ring in place using your thumb, index and middle fingers and put the bottom end of the feather inside of the ring. Using the clamping tool clamp the ring which will hold the feather in place. Congratulation you have put in your own feather hair extension.
The rings are available in different colors to match your hair. Also different color feathers can be used to match your hair color. For example red furnace feather hair extensions go well with black hair while natural white hair extensions would look best in blond hair, but really you can do whatever looks best on you.Enjoy your new look!

Creating your own feather earrings is simple and fun. The best part is that you can choose the style and color of the feather that you want to use. All you will need is a pair of needle nose pliers, good scissors copper or steel wire and of course feathers. Oh and I almost forgot you are going to need to buy the earring hooks to attach the feathers to. Ok so what you need to do is trim the bottom end of the feather about two centimeters before the hairs of the feather, you can also just make the measurement by using the width of your finger. Now place the end of the wire right along the bottom end of the feather, bend the wire in the middle at the point where the feather hairs begin. Wrap the wire as tightly as possible around itself and the feather; use the needle nose pliers if that helps you make it tighter. Start the wrappings just before the bend in the wire and keep it close that you can’t see feather or wire underneath. Once you have gotten to the bottom end of feather and wire, snip the wire leaving enough wire for a nice size ring and another set of wrappings along the end of the feather. Thread the wire through the ring on the earring hook and make a nice size loop to allow for good freedom of motion for the feather. Then wrap the wire tightly over the first wrappings and then using the pliers press the wire end into the wrappings so you don’t get poked when wearing them. You can use the same process to attach feathers to earrings that you have. Here are some suggestions of feathers for your new look.
Here is a link to a YouTube video showing the process explained above http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xj9gH1VTwI4&feature=feedf

Feathers are a great addition to any outfit you have. No matter what your style you can find a feathered product to make you look unique. Feathered apparel is mostly a female thing but it can work well for men as well, at least in some scenarios.
Let’s first see how feathered apparel could work for all different styles for the ladies. We could start with the obvious feathered coats, jackets and shawls. These can be used to make any elegant outfit to be fancier and different. Also you can add a simpler feathered boa to add elegance to a formal outfit. Classy women who are going out in warm weather and want to add some feathered accessory can bring a feathered fan along with them.
Now for those girls that are more into the dress down kind of look, be it hipster or punk rocker feathered hair extensions are the way to go to add the punk or hip to what you are wearing.
So if you or your girl are more into the dress down look then brows through our selection of feathered HAIR EXTENSIONS.
So what about the guys? Well the classic move of putting a feather in the hat is one that everyone is familiar but is still a bit different when worn out. But what about a small colored flower in the breast pocket or a suite jacket? One that matches the color of your tie or shirt. I wouldn’t advise any guys to use feathered hair extensions but if you’re looking for the Native American Indian look then that could work.
Whatever your gender or style take a look and see if there is anything at FeatherStore.com to add some feather fashion to your life.
