I was looking for an affordable alternative to the standard feather pricing in town, $7 to $10 per feather. I knew if I searched the interwebs long enough I would find the answer. And I did. Yelp pointed me to Feather Luxe West Coast, a company providing professional feather extensions without the use of glue or adhesives. Best of all was the cost: $25 per bundle of 6-8 feathers. Not $25 per feather but per bundle.
I knew I had to put this company to the test so I reached out to Jennifer Nye-Walsh, a FeatherHead servicing the San Jose / South Bay area. We met a few days later, where I was able to choose my own colour combination of blue, green and white/black. As we chatted about my couponing, she carefully selected individual feathers for my bundle; measuring them against one another for balance and trimming any excess fuzz so they would melt in with my hair.
