Hand-selected, real feathers are growing in popularity as a fun twist on colored highlights. Feathers come in two varieties: longer, thinner extensions (about 10 inches) or thicker and shorter (about 6 inches). Get as many or as few as your heart—and head—desires. Feathers are secured with a metal crimp bead, and easily removed. Don’t let your hairstyle suffer—feathers can be combed, brushed, straightened, curled and blow-dried.

Offered in every glittery shade possible, hair tinsel is similar to feathers but with more sparkle. Strings are 15 inches long but can be cut to your desired length. The application process involves tying the tinsel to individual strands—so be careful when combing.
