My friend Claire recently introduced me to wonderful Portlandia. Put a bird on it anyone? This inspired me to think about my beloved Denverlandia. What is our thing? Feathers my friends, feathers.
Not that there’s anything wrong with feathers. Personally, I love feathers. I even recently got feathers in my hair. Now for my Missouri fans, I promise, I have not gone off the deep end. Feathers are big here in Denverlandia you see, and I am actually a late adopter of the hair feather trend. I would estimate that at least half of my friends have feathers in their hair. Anyway, I absolutely love my feathers.
I got the purple ones because I figure that if you’re going to have feathers, you might as well have fun! I actually have two bundles of feathers, one in the front of my hair and one in the back. Denverlandia friends, I only paid $10 for the set at Headlines Salon by Washington Park, which is one of the cheaper prices I have heard of for feathers. Feathers last anywhere from 2-8 weeks, and they are clipped in like an extension, so the life of the feather depends on the care. This means I’m already planning for my next set of feathers. I think next time I will probably go for some longer feathers in the front of my hair.
Feathers are popular in more than just hair in Denverlandia. Feather jewelry is also a great way to express love for feathers. In fact, my friend Sarabeth, who is the biggest feather fan I know, has a little sister that has an amazing Etsy shop called Bahini that sells the prettiest feather jewelry and accessories. I want it all!
