I'm sure you've all noticed the new awesome trend of feather hair extensions. I'd really like to dye and design my own for my hair, but I can't find anywhere online that just sells the long, thin, rooster saddle/hackle feathers. Anyone know a supplier where I can get them?

I don't know if you're still looking for these but finefeatherheads.com sells the extensions. Looking for goose feather biots might net you some results too. And both Hobby Lobby and Joanne's carry the biots. You might try hte floral section of craft stores too. They usually have some longer feathers to put in floral arrangements. 2 cents.

Thank you Smiley I actually also found some at a fly fishing supply, but I'll definitely look at Joanne's next time I'm there.

Stick with the ply fishing store. they are the better ones. and i was researching today on dying me own, cause i to want certain colors. If you buy the white one, and use acid dyes or any dyes to dye silk or wool. You could do whatever color you want. and would be cheaper. I am in cosmetology school. so i am going to test the color line i use.

Also a place to buy the feathers other than fly fishing stores

Hope this helps??

Definitely. The ones I bought are on backorder so it may be a while but once I get them and dye them I'll definitely post pics Smiley

What an interesting idea! Could you possibly incorporate silver, beads or charms into the feathers? Kind of like putting beads on dreadlocks? That would be cool...

I'm sure you could. I've seen a lot of very interesting things on etsy, people get so creative. I ended up buying the feathers pre-dyed, it actually ended up being cheaper that way *shrug*

So I've been looking into dying my own feathers for the extensions, because it's so expensive to buy them pre-dyed. I've ordered a saddle, and I'm still researching the dye, yet I found one for a good price that's an acid dye..

But, my question is.. Will the acid dye start to wash out over time from the feather, or possibly bleed onto the hair and dye the hair during shower time? I'm trying to search this everywhere, but no one seems to have posted anything about it. I've also been thinking of using Synthrapol to stop the color from seeping out of the feather when it is in water. Has anyone tried this and recommends it?
