Hair Feather Fashion and Happiness

My favorite trend of 2011 has to be Hair Feathers. When I first saw them, I have to admit I didn’t know what to think, but after my bff convinced me to have some put in, it only took about 30 seconds for me to fall in love with them! Hair Feathers are a great way to show off your creativity and express yourself.

Here’s a pic of me and my cousin, I have in a grizzly and a pure indigo XL. ( that you can see, lol)

I get all my feathers from my friends at HairFeather.com, they carry all professional grade rooster feathers. They have lasted me forever; some of my feathers have lasted me since August! I love playing around with my feathers, switching them out and mixing up color combos. My favorite style feathers are the “grizzlies”. The extensions last a while, depending on how your hair grows and how the clip is installed, I have washed, blow dried, ironed, and even curled my feathers. Now they also have Clip-in feathers that you can switch out and take off whenever you want. They are great if you don’t want to have your feathers in 24/7, but I still favor the extensions because you have more options on how you want your  feathers and if you have a kit you can take them out in 2 minutes if you need to.

Miami Fashion Week

A couple and friends & I were lucky enough to be able to attend a couple of the shows going on this week.

Here are a few pictures we took  at The Setai Hotel in South Beach, were we saw the shows for Paul Sinclaire, Denim of Virtue Fashion Show and Future Heretics Fashion Show.

This is a collage I put together of our personal pics.

Keeping your Dark Jeans Dark

Dark jeans are hot and amazing, you can wear them almost anywhere , dress them up or down. But they can also be a pain ,the dark dye from the jeans rubs off on your seat, your purse and of course your underwear and then, as you wash them they fade like crazy so you don’t want to wear them anymore!  The reason jeans fade is because for the most part  they are made of cotton fibers dyed with ink, the ink fades as you wash them and wear them. Here are a couple of tricks to help keep your jeans looking nice and new longer.

  • Soak in salt water before the first wash
  • Wash them inside out
  • Hang dry them
  • Steam them

Soaking your jeans

Things you will need:

  • One 16 ounce container of Sea Salt
  • Use of a large sink or a bucket (enough room to completely soak your jeans)
  • Cold water
  • Fill plugged sink with cold water. Make sure you fill the sink with enough water to cover the dark jeans in water.
    • Never ever wash your dark-colored jeans with warm or hot water.This will let the dye just bleed out and your jeans will fade right away.
    • Some recommend vinegar. You can try it by just pouring a small bottle of vinegar in the sink.however you don’t need it, and your jeans will stink to the point you may end up washing them a couple of times to get the smell out.
  • Pour one cup of sea salt into the water. Let the salt sit for a couple of minutes.
  • Stir the water,  until most of the salt is dissolved.
  • Put your new dark-colored jeans in the sink and push the jeans under the water with your hands and make sure your jeans are completely cover and soak up the water.
  • Let soak for about an hour. Check on the jeans every 10-15 minutes ago to make sure none of the fabric floats to the top.
  • An hour later, the water will be dark ( this is normal) the dye is now set. Drain the sink and the rinse the jeans with cold water.
  • Turning jeans inside out is another trick you can do to help to lessen fading when you wash your jeans.
  • Wash in cold water on regular cycle.
  • Dry them. I suggest hang drying, because the dryer also speeds up fading dark jeans.
  • To get wrinkles out:
    • put the jeans in the dryer for a couple of minutes on low
    • hang them in the bathroom when you take a hot shower.
    • Steam them with a steamer if you have one ( they are awesome, btw)
