Feather Extensions

Bling Strand Feathers in NAILPRO editor's hair

Bekki, Nailpro Intern Extraordinaire; Stephanie, Nailpro Editor and myself finally put FEATHERS in our hair. Given the product write-ups dispersed between six fashion magazines and all the squawking from style blogs, you would’ve thought these birds of the same feather had taken the plumage earlier. I felt like a lucky duck when Bling Strands sent me some extensions! (Okay, I’ll stop with the bird puns.)

This is super easy to do and I highly recommend purchasing the silicon-lined crimping beads to prevent hair from getting damaged by, for instance, using jewelry beads instead. I did that and it looked great but sadly a lot of my hair came out with the old feathers. You can purchase these amazing little beads we used at www.dohairextensions.com. Very affordable and totally worth it.

Check out the pics here for steps and be on the lookout for our how-to video.

NAILPRO is a huge advocate to plug any new trends that may boost salon sales for you as an extra service. This is definitely a very pheasant one. (Sorry, I couldn’t resist.)

1) Section off a small piece of hair to attach feathers to. You'll want to attach bead close to scalp but not touching. 2) Use a needle threader or knitting latch hook and put bead on latch, then thread hair through latch loop. 3) Push bead in forward motion over hair towards scalp and work hair out of loop. 4) Place feathers inside bead and use jewelry (flat or round) plyers to crimp bead. 5) Bekki has no egrets!  Looks fab.

Key Words:



For many people, a hair transplant is a life changing experience. Transplanting new hair can make you look younger, cover scars or give you a completely new look. A new technology in hair transplants, NeoGrafting, now makes hair transplants easier and more aesthetically pleasing while reducing scarring in the area of your scalp that donated the hair.

I offer these feathers for sale if you're ever looking to buy some, and our rates are very reasonable :) We source most from Whitings, Metz and a few local suppliers that have gorgeous, long feathers.
They are not a "vegan" product, but these roosters are pampered compared to food chickens, as they are raised with fresh air, sunshine and the best of care.
