As much as I’m down for some good ol’ hair featherin’ (seeing the ’80s are back and kickin’), I am not down with flaunting real feathers from our bird friends in the name of fashion.
It seems as though these cruel feather hair extensions popped up overnight, and now everyone and their grandma is wearing them. Sure, at first glance, these feathery accessories may look kind of cool, but they are in fact the reason that many roosters lose their lives. Roosters used to make these extensions are bred and genetically altered to produce long, luxurious saddle feathers (the ones on their backsides, which take years to grow) before they are killed and de-feathered. What costs these animals their lives in turn costs anywhere from $40 to $500 per saddle and can only be worn by the consumer for a mere two or three months.
So instead of supporting the slaughter of thousands of animals each week just to have feathers in your hair, why not instead opt for a pretty flower, some spunky-colored hair extensions, or a classy rhinestoney barrette… or stay tuned for our DIY ribbon version of these accessories (coming very soon)!
Father loves to farm, be self sustainable, loves to read, he's a antiques/vintage auctioneer, art student, and looks like mr. Rogers. My mother is a Montessori teacher and is amazing with children, all about local organic foods, loves gardening, cooking etc. my sister who is nine years older than me was into indie music and introduced me to all sorts of things at a young age. This all rubbed of on me and from that base I grew into similar things. I'm an INFJ
Well let's just say life ain't always beautiful but it's a beautiful ride. I love all my pets and would do anything for them. I have one dog, two cats, a ferret and my babygirl shaymin,(the cutest hedgehog alive) I'm into all different kinds of music. I'm a singer myself and love art.
I want to get into marketing but not have to rely on people which have different morals and worldviews than I do to hire me. While I'm figuring this out, I want to show everyone what I believe in and spur them into action against injustices.
