Anywho, we normally foil 2-3 different colors into my hair and always have. Well yesterday we decided to do an all over red. It has the look of foils because I literally had 8-9 different colors in my hair. She also talked me into the new fad of feathers in your hair. Normally I am one to avoid fads but we decided to go for it and we used some more natural color feather sure as red & black, black &gray, and a all gray one. You can see the gray one the most but I am super happy with the turnout and glad we didnt use pinks, blue, greens and such. It was super easy to put them in and super cheap if you DIY it. At the request of the lovely Layla, I shall show you!
The feathers can be purchased at a craft store, a fishing store or any such place. We used the low key small ones versus the big showy ones. I only put 3 in my hair and they are just in one spot. I have seen some people and they just go into overkill mode with them and I wanted mine really low key.

- Then you will need to get some little beads. They are pliable little suckers and are usually in the craft or fishing section. I think they are called 'crimp beads'.

- The tools you will need will be some needle nose pliers to squish the bead and some sort of looping tool. The looping type tool is kind of like a giant version of those things that help you thread a needle. If you dont want to go buy that little contraption I personally see no reason to as there are several things around the house you can use (fishing string, sewing thread, etc). If you choose to just use something like that all you do is make a loop out of the string and place it through the bead, place a small piece of hair through the loop and pull it back through the bead that way you have a small piece of hair through the bead to attach the feathers too. Then place the tips of the feathers (remember I used 3 in just one little section) into the bead and using the pliers squish the bead down until it secures the feathers in there.
I placed my feathers almost right up to my scalp under a layer in my hair near my side bangs

O and you may need to trim them depending on the length of your noggin fur =)
Here is a youtube video I found that helps explain it better
