All ruffled up

Early in January when I was introduced to a coworker I immediately noticed her hair; specifically the few strands of brightly colored feathers she had adorned her tresses with. Instantly my wheels started churning.

If you know me, you know that I'm one to always want to mess with my hair. Its been a handful of colors, super short, long, blonde underneath, bright red ends after I graduated high school and almost every red/burgundy/wine and shade of black in between. But... feathers? That was a new one.

Ever since I saw some photos from a local salon who specializes in color I decided I wanted to dye a section underneath to look like phesant feathers.

Instead... enter the feather extensions.
oh hai bathroom shot. this takes me back to myspace..
Apologies for the bad bathroom shot but holy cow, I have a new obsession. I love these so much - it seems as if it is the perfect answer. I still get to have a bit of fun with my hair - and when I'm tired of it - I take them out.  Even the BF likes them, and my mom thought they were pretty cool, too.

So today after work I'm going to go have some more put in - I'm thinking some red ones and maybe gold or brown.

Anyway. In other news I'm stalking a pair of shoes and a skirt on urban. Not sure if I'll bite - maybe after payday this week but we will see.

Has anyone done anything different with their hair lately? Let me know - I'd love to hear about it! Hope you are having a great week so far!


  1. omg laura your feather extensions are so neat!! where do you get them from??

  2. i got them done at pretty parlour in the mission/potrero hill and today i'm going to another place i found on facebook called feather babes. ;)

    Sadly, I have no adventures in hair - but this is a reminder to me that I am long overdue for a cut and color!
