Last week I went to a local style bar I had been dying to try out for awhile. I was so excited about going to this place, I had been engaging with the salon on Twitter and was looking forward to seeing what they do. It turned out their service was a bit of a disappointment but I decided to get some feathers put in my hair while I was there. That was the only part of the experience that I liked! I LOVED these feathers from the moment I walked out of the salon… I still do but I realized something, I’m stuck with these unless I pay someone to take them out and put them back in if I want to change things up with my hair. Right around that time, a box of these Sultra Natural Feather Hair Accents arrived in the mail and I realized these are the perfect solution to my problem.
You may have notice that feathers are everywhere now. Selena Gomez (she wore Sultra’s Blaze to the Teen Choice Awards), Miley Cyrus, Ke$ha and Hilary Duff have been spotted wearing them. While the feathers you get in a salon last 4 to 6 weeks and allow you to wash and style your hair as normal, they are not flexible. I am due for a touch up to my hair color and now I’m thinking I’m going to need the stylist to remove and reinstall my feathers. Had I gone with Sultra from the start this would not be an issue at all. They can be washed and styled like other feathers but their advantage (and it is a big one) is you can take them out WHENEVER you want since they snap into place like a button.
This is me wearing “Blaze”, the same shade Selena Gomez went with. These are so easy to put in, I’ve been doing it without a mirror all week. I try to snap the feathers into place as close to my roots as I can but I try to keep it as close to the top as possible, this way the snap is not visible as you can see here. Before I received this sample set, I thought $25 was a little pricey for these but that was before I paid more for a different version. The salon I went to charges $30 for three feathers and they are clamped into your hair like an extension that last 4 to 6 weeks. With these you have the flexibility to do whatever you want with your hair and could last you even longer depending on how you take care of your feathers. Sultra actually advises keeping the box they come in to store your feathers. Wise words!
So what do you think? Do you like the feathers? Some days I’m wearing my salon feathers on one side and Sultra’s on the other, I’ve put them in my little pompadour poof and even mixed them in with the salon feathers. I have been having a lot of fun with them and it has inspired me to experiment with my hair a little more. At first I was all about the stripped feathers but then this solid feather was peeking out one day and it had me thinking I need to experiment with more solid feathers. All I want to know now is when someone’s coming out with the tinsel version! 😉
