From a rooster’s tail to a person’s head: Feather extensions
July 15, 2011 by Chris Dunn
Apparently, wearing feathers in your hair is a big thing now. I feel like there’s a(n old) song about this, but all I can think of is “Ribbons Down My Back” from the musical Hello Dolly!
Anyway. Feathers. Not big plumes, but long, thin rooster tail feathers.

With three feathers already clamped to her hair, Hannah Bosley, 16 of Spring Garden Township, waits for Michael Alan Salon & Day Spa stylist Corinne Lentz to add two additional feathers on Friday, July 8, 2011. The feathers are inserted into a small metal bead and clamped around a few strands of hair. The feather extensions can stay in a client's hair for 2-4 months and can be worn in the shower and pool, and can have hair product applied to them.
If you read the article (which you should anyway — Lauren seems to have had fun writing it), you’ll find out why this feather trend is giving fly fishermen a run for their money.
