Hair Play, Fare Play

     Okay, I'm a wee bit behind the wheel on this first one.. feathers. They. are. everywhere. At first I wasn't so sure. Then I noticed them everywhere and really really wasn't so sure. Now I'm kind of indifferent. I like the look and the idea behind it. The execution however often leaves much to be desired. Maybe it's because some girls are getting their feathers on the cheap cheap, but really, if you are considering a DIY version made from craft feathers via Michaels, DONT do it. It's not a good look no matter how many times you tell yourself otherwise.

     Feathers done appropriately and styled correctly however are another story. I'm hooked. In fact if I had just a little bit more boho/hippie dippie/ free spiritedness in me I'd already be feathered out. These pictures are perfect examples of exactly how to look like a rockstar while following the trend.

Call me crazy but I almost see an Olsen twin here. Full shot image includes over sized bag, clothes, multiple scarves, a venti coffee, and sunglasses. 
Trendy feathers looking chic in an up do? I think so! Sorry no celebrity resemblance here to report on.

      If that wasn't enough, have you heard about tie dying the tips of your hair? It's wonderful and fun and fearless when done correctly. And you see these rare cases of beautifully colored ends invoke legitimate hair envy on my part. Because true story my friends, I'm a brunette. Not much color can be added to all this brown. Correction- not much color can be successfully and/or tastefully added. 

Exhibit Number One: This is why I will not be adding color to my hair.  Let it be known that any resemblance to a Jersey Shore cast member is never a good thing.  Ever. 

Exhibit Number Two: This is why if you are blessed with golden locks you should add color to them immediately. P.S is there anything Lauren Conrad can't do successfully? Oh, the MTV paradox. 

     So that's it guys, how's your hair looking these days? Have you tried any of these new looks? Maybe you dabbled in the ombre trend? What does your hair care plan consist of?  Sticking to easy low maintenance routines, air dry, brush optional? That's my deal most days! Spill please so we can talk about it.
