I saw my friend Theresa earlier this week with the most extraordinary thing in her hair. I couldn't resist, so I asked "What is it?"
She explained to me about hair extensions, and how humans can ALSO get feather extensions. Essentially, it's a long feather that clips onto a small clump of hair and then becomes part of your hair for as long as you'd like.
Me, knowing nothing about hair extensions was astonished. "Really??" Yes, really. Turns out there's an entire industry of extensions about which I know nothing.
You can probably predict my next question to Theresa:
What kind of feather is it? That is, what kind of bird did this come from?
Can you figure it out? Some clues--it's about 12 inches long and maybe 1/4" wide.
