And it’s no surprise that they’re all the rage. Feather extensions offer an easy way to spice up your everyday look, without the commitment involved with the usual chemical processes.The trend originated in Colorado, where fly-fishing is popular, spread to California and is moving across the country. At a local salon having feather extensions put in can cost you anywhere from as little as $15 per bundle to as much as $50 per bundle.All depending on the salon or how many feathers or bundles you put in.

The metallic-looking extensions are actually just thin swatches of the same synthetic material used to make Christmas tree tinsel. Clients have been requesting them from coast to coast to add pizazz to their regular blowout or hairstyle, and even though the extensions come in a rainbow of hues, most women prefer a tinsel color close to their natural shade. Your can blow dry, straighten and curl you tresses. With proper care and maintenance hair tinsel will last anywhere from 2-5 weeks. Prices vary from $3 and up per strand depending on which salon you choose.

I found the best prices for feather extensions on Etsy.com or on Ebay if you choose to DIY. If you don't want to deal with the hassle of ordering online then a Salon Professional can do a great job and you can sit back and let them do all the work and enjoy :)
