Steven Tyler Feathers

Dude looks like a bird!  Steven Tyler has had a huge impact on America since he's become a judge on American Idol.  The feathers that Tyler wears in his hair have become a huge trend among men and women (but mostly women).  Fly fishing shops have been running out of their supply of feathers due to the high demand.  More and more salons have been offering their feather extension services to the public.  All of this is simply because of Steven Tyler.

Many of you may already know all of the story behind the recent feather craze, but what you may not know is where you can find feather extensions or accessories.  These feather extensions have definitely been going up in price but you have a few different options to explore.  Many salons now are offering services, so you can try to find who has the best deal around.  If you prefer to order them and do it yourself, a few great online sources include http://featherextensionsforhair.com/ and http://www.conditionculture.com/ They have been getting more expensive, but the good news is that these feathers are reusable.  Not only that but if you buy a pack that includes the tools to put the feathers in, you can look at local craft stores or fly fishing stores for more unique feathers that you can try.  Remember that you cannot put heat on fake feathers that you would most likely find at the craft store (this means no straightening or curling the feather).  If you find a fake feather that you fall in love with though, you can just avoid putting heat in that area.

If you don't think feather extensions are your thing, you can try other feather accessories that are very in right now.  Try some flashy feather earrings or a feather necklace.  These feather statement jewelry pieces are popping up in many different stores, so go fishing for some feathers!

Steven Tyler has even been inspiring other famous faces with his feathers...

Taylor Swift Bad Hair Day Trick

So here is the Taylor Swift Tutorial, just as a promised, for those days when your hair is a wreck!  I hope you all enjoy it!!!

Putting a Stop to Bad Hair Days!!!!

I have made it my recent mission to upload as many tutorials as I can to end bad hair days.  Many people have been asking me what to do on bad hair days or on those days when you don't wash your hair.  

If your hair is a little bit greasy, I would definitely recommend using a dry shampoo.  Many people don't really understand the need for it, but believe me, it works wonders!  Just by spraying a little dry shampoo to your roots, your hair instantly feels cleaner.  The only bad thing about dry shampoo is that is sometimes leaves your hair looking a little dull.  Thankfully, there is also a solution to this problem!  The answer is dry conditioner.  Dry conditioner adds shine to the hair after applying dry shampoo.  Dry shampoo and conditioner are definitely a fast fix to a bad hair day.

Another solution to the bad hair day, which many people again don't try, is hats!  Many people believe that they do not have a good "hat head" but the truth is that you probably just aren't used to wearing hats.  Try just for one bad hair day to wear a cute hat like a fedora or a beret.  Especially if you don't wear hats often, this will change your look up and people will take notice.  Many celebrities including Taylor Swift, Vanessa Hudgens, Kate Hudson, Kourtney Kardashian, and many others have been seen wearing statement hats.  If they can pull it off, why can't you?  Just give it a try.  Last week Britain was swarming with unique hats during and after the royal wedding.  In the United States, many people put on their statement hats for the Kentucky Derby.  If there was a time to start trying out hats, its now.
So stay tuned for more youtube tutorials for putting an end to bad hair days!  I'm uploading a Taylor Swift inspired one as we speak...
