She {hearts} DIY Feather Braid

My sis got one of those trendy feather hair extensions a couple months ago. And boy, was it cute!

I opted not to get one. I guess it’s due to the fact I’m pretty cheap frugal and because actually “fixin” my hair (y’all know I’m from Texas, right?) doesn’t happen very often. That’s why it’s long. So I can put it up and get it out of the way…Yes, I’m one of those mommas, excluding date nights with the hubby though. I try to please my man:)

I have hair on the brain today…bad joke, I know. But my daughter who’s got the long hair in the pictures (which were taken yesterday) just got her hair cut to her shoulder’s for the new school year. I was the one at the salon almost in tears…

DSC_0235Back to me being frugal: this braid cost me nothing! Since I wasn’t sure my idea would work we decided to skip the feathers from Michaels which were really cheap to begin with and raid our dress-up chest and pluck our boas (so, no roosters were harmed in the name of fashion or fly fishing for this post:)

You will need:

2-5 little feathers (depending on the hair length)

Hair gel/putty (the stickier the better)

Small clear hair band

Find the section of hair you want to make your skinny braid, then make the three sections. Take one section, starting at the top. Dip your first feather in the gel (small amount) and place it like you were gluing it to the top, close to the scalp. Continue going down the section of hair til the end. Overlapping is good. More of the feather will show through the braid. Finish with the clear hair band.

Note: Since the gel will be dry, it’s best for you to wet the hair before attempting to remove the braid and feathers.

DSC_0238I think this will be fun for a girl’s birthday party or a ladies night out! I plan on getting some white feathers from Micheals for me. Although, I wish we already owned a white boa:)
