Awesome!  I talked to a lady who had some done at the salon and they still looked good after 3 weeks.  Can't wait to try this out!

Crimp Tubes!  I refused to pay to get these in my hair but have been coveting them.  I could not figure out how to attach them and it ends up being something I have had hundreds of in my cabinets.  Thank you!

I had some put in at my salon and one came out after a couple days and I put it back in myself and it lasted longer.  I won't be wearing the feathers anymore as I found out that the roosters are killed in order to get the feathers. A lot of roosters are being killed to keep up with the high demand.
Actually, the roosters are eaten.  Just so you know.  Plus feathers can be plucked without killing a rooster.

the crimp beads used for this are actually lined with silicone to help hold the hair longer,

also you can get a tool to pass the feather through on ebay for about a dollar and you can get synthetic feathers as well quite cheaply (under 2 dollars) on ebay.

What kind of crimp beads are used and where can I find them.  I use the small ones for jewelry, but don't know about the larger ones.

They are lovely.

If anyone knows someone who keeps chicken (inc roosters) they naturally moult every year so you can even get feathers without killing them if you are a veggie. Plucking feathers out of a live rooster would be cruel and I've never heard of anyone doing that. They wouldn't be killed just for feathers their days are numbered anyway so may as well make use of the feathers as well as the meat. Some species of pheasant as reared purely for their feathers so you may want to avoid those if that bothers you. Hackle feathers are the really pretty pointy ones.
