What are hair feathers?

Hair feather extensions are real feathers harvested from specially bred roosters, prized for their length and beauty. Feathers are then plucked, hand selected, cleaned and dyed to create vibrant colors, or left in their natural tones.

How are hair feathers applied?

The preferred way to apply the feathers is with a micro link. A small amount of your hair is threaded through the micro link along with the feathers. A tool is then used to crimp the micro link, securely attaching the feathers to your hair. Extension glue can be used as well, but results are not as desirable.

How do I care for them?

Hair feather extensions can be treated like your natural hair. You can shampoo, condition, and heat style your hair as you normally would. Feathers should be removed or foiled before color treating your hair.

How long do hair feathers last?

With proper care, hear feathers can last as long as four months. Care should be taken to avoid snagging the micro link. The feathers are reusable! The micro link can be opened and feathers can be re-applied with a new micro link.

Can I take the feathers out when I want?

Removing the feathers is easy. Simply use a pair of needle nose pliers to pinch the micro link back open, and slide the link off the hair. Another option is to have clip-in feathers. Feathers can be made into a clip that can be removed whenever you like.

Why do the feathers seem so expensive?

The roosters used for these feathers are specially bred, and take at least one year to grow feathers of appropriate length for extensions. Demand for these feathers is astronomical! There simply are not enough feathers to go around. We strive to have competitive pricing without sacrificing quality. Rest assured our prices are on par with competitors.

Where to you get your feathers?

Due to the incredible demand for feathers, we have decided to keep our source proprietary. Rest assured these are HIGH QUALITY feathers from a long standing American farm.

Are feathers kid friendly?

Absolutely! Hair feathers are a great temporary alternative to chemical dyes, and can be removed at any time. Perfect for teens and pre-teens wanting a fun look without the risk.

Harvesting feathers from roosters is cruel. Isn’t it?

This depends on your perspective. Roosters bred for their feathers lead a pampered life compared to birds bred for the meat industry. If the conditions for the roosters are not ideal, they will not produce quality feathers. This means the birds must be provided with a mate, adequate housing, premium food and care. Stressed or unhappy roosters mean for an undesirable feather result. Roosters are not free range, they are highly territorial and will kill each other and injure themselves. (Rest assured they are given plenty of room to be comfortable).

These roosters live a long indulged life (45+ weeks), where meat industry chickens are slaughtered around 30 days.

Live plucking of feathers is painful for the birds. Therefore, roosters are euthanized before plucking, unlike chickens bred for meat, who are slaughtered and processed alive. The feathers are removed from the bird, and the carcass is composted to create nutrient rich fertilizer for farming communities. (The government does not authorize the meat for use in the pet industry.)

So, if you are concerned that the roosters are well treated, then rest at ease. If you are against using animals for any purpose other that meat, then feather extensions are probably not for you.
