Selena Gomez gets feathered at the Kids' Choice Awards

Forget highlights. Women of all ages are flocking to a new hair trend: feather extensions.


These colorful creations have been spotted on celebrities like Selena Gomez, Ke$ha and Steven Tyler, and can be put in at salons or bought online from about $10 and up on sites like Sephora and Etsy.

The feathers are attached to the root of the hair with metal clips, last for several months and can even withstand blow dryers and curling irons.
