Feather Hair Extensions by Feather Ray!

I love feather jewellery & own a whole stack of feather earrings, so when I recently heard about feather hair extensions, I was super intrigued! I started to notice celebs rockin' the hair feather look, Ke$ha in particular kept popping up with feathers in her hair:


As I don't really like to dye my hair, so the thought of using brightly coloured feathers to create highlights sounded uber appealing! After a quick Google search, I found out that Steven Tyler is to blame for the sudden feather frenzy. The craze is MASSIVE in the US, hair salons will apply feathers to your hair for muchos dollars & they can last weeks, if not months.


A further Google search led me to a UK website (not to be named but they are total rubbish) who sell hair feathers that you can apply yourself. I placed an order & after watching this amazing tutorial by Kandee Johnson, I was convinced I'd be able to put them in myself:


How adorable is she!?

A few days later my feathers arrived & I ripped open the package!! My heart sank. The feathers were TINY, I couldn't believe I'd wasted £15 on them. I was absolutely devastated and it seemed my hair feather dream was over. I began to give up on the idea of having ridiculously cool hair...UNTIL I discovered the amazing Feather Ray!



They have a fantastic website that clearly shows what you get in each feather pack. They also have pictures of girls wearing each pack in case you aren't sure which look(s) to go for! I was slightly dubious (after the last feather disaster), so I got in contact with Ro to ask her about the size of the feathers. She was SO helpful and gave me lots of information and advice.

I decided to go for the 'Rainbow Festival Mix' which is £15:

I wasn't disappointed!!

I re-watched Kandee Johnson's video and put them in! The great thing about real feathers is that you can wash, curl & straighten them as if you would your own hair. Also, if you look after them they can last up to 2 months! Wowza.


I personally like separating the feathers to create a funky all over feather look. However, because you get at least seven feathers, you can apply them in twos or threes, or even all together to make a fierce statement!


After finding Feather Ray I would never buy hair feathers from anywhere else. It's run by 2 best friends, Neal and Ro who are feather fiends, festival crazy & super sweet. I 100% recommend them to everyone!!

For more Feather Ray news, follow them on Facebook & stalk them on Twitter.

T- Totally buying a few extra packs to take backpacking! No dodgy backpacker hair for this Rawr Girl. XoX


Please note: For those who have concerns about the feathers, Feather Ray use the best quality, ethically produced, real feathers. They carefully choose their feathers and source them from the worlds top producer, Whitings Farm. You can expect nothing but the best from Feather Ray.

  27. I love the Rainbow Festival Mix! It's so coloured and funny :P
    But I prefer to wore the feathers in little groups of one or two and apply them in the same place (of the hair of course).

    Kisses and thanks for the visit!
