Feather Hair Extensions + Giveaway

So we did the hair extensions today.

Don’t mind how poofy my hair is. It always poofs up until I sleep on it. Which is why I shower later in the day and don’t wash it often.

Gaia had a yellow one, but she pulled it out less than an hour after we did it. They are meant to last a few weeks, so she wound up ripping out some hair too, but didn’t seem to notice until I pointed it out.

I didn’t do it “the right way,” as I am no salon expert. I watched this video, and I used a piece of thread to make a loop to feed my hair through the bead. I then used some big heavy duty man pliers to squish the bead and apply the extension. It worked fine, so don’t let anyone tell you you need a fancy kit or anything to do them.

I bought a lot off of eBay and wound up getting several colors. They are reusable, assuming you have more microbeads for re-installation. The microbeads, I guess, wear down over time. Also hair grows so you’d have to reposition the extension closer to your scalp after some time anyway.

Since I wound up with so many, I’m giving some away! Weee!

I will give one lucky winner two 14-16″ feather hair extensions and two microbeads.
