When we got an email from jeweler and handbag designer Wendy Nichol today with the subject line "hair feather for shit weather," it goes without saying that we were intrigued. Upon clicking through, our interest was warranted—Nichol is now offering feather hair extensions, one 2011 trend we're psyched to try. According to Nichol, "the feathers are sourced responsibly, the colors are all-natural, and come from farm-raised happy birds." And we're pretty happy too: Not only are these rad accessories ethical, the cost to change up your look only costs $45. It's a fun weekend activity, too—the cool peeps (maybe Wendy herself!) at Nichol's Sullivan Street studio/store will show you the extensive selection of feather colors and lengths, then will set them in whatever part of your hair you want. The whole process takes no more than 10 minutes, plus you can still wash or blow dry your hair, and the extensions last for over a month. In Nichol's words, "it's genius."
