One of the trends that I have been super excited to try (and have indulged in recently) are feather hair extensions. I was lucky enough to spot Finest Feathers at a popular flea market in the area. I only had 4 feathers put in my hair but took a business card because I knew I would be getting some more before I left!
Melissa (of Finest Feathers) came to my house this morning. We had discussed what I wanted prior to her coming. She told me she would put some lavender “bundles” aside for me. “Bundles” are 4 feathers put together. She did that but she also brought along a huge plastic tote full of all the other feathers, just in case I wanted something else. When I say huge, I am thinking it’s a 10 gallon tote-granted they are feathers, but that is still awkward to carry around (kudos for excellent customer service). She also sat me down and showed me the different color clamps she had and asked what color I prefer-yes she is THAT detailed….down to the clamp color people! I chose a copper clamp.
She pulled out the lavender bundles….she also let me know that the feathers that she uses are of the highest quality and that they are treated rooster feathers and NOT synthetic. The synthetic feathers ARE cheaper, but you can’t heat style your hair with them (they will melt and stick to your hair-yikes, and no thank you).
Here’s what she did:
I have to tell you I am absolutely delighted with my feathers! I wish I could get more! Melissa is so meticulous with her work and has a great eye for color and placement. I love that she took her time and let me look and approve all of the placements before securing them with a clamp! Perfecto! I wish she was in T.O.! However, I know I will be visiting her again the next time I am back in town!
you can contact Melissa at Finestfeathers@gmail.com-she is mobile (within reason of course)!! As soon as I can find her Facebook page, I will post it!
