Before they became a fashionable accessory, feather extensions were used by undercover police to get close to the source of early-morning crowing. Pick up proven plumage with today's Groupon: for $19, you get a cluster of three feather hair extensions at Geneva Hair Studio (a $45 value).
At Geneva Hair Studio, crystalline chandeliers dangle over onyx-hued seats, illuminating owner Jaime Zentz, who appeared sporting her own jewel-toned rooster feathers for an article in the Indianapolis Star, as she infuses coifs with colorful plumage. The bird-borne embellishments span a rainbow of colors and stand up to most normal hair-related activities, such as styling, straightening, washing, and spinning into gold. The stylists attach one cluster of three quills to the client's mane with silicone beads, after which the decoration can dangle betwixt strands for six to eight weeks. Although most of the feathers are 8–16 inches long, customers with closer-cropped coifs can bedeck their scalps with shorter extensions. Recently be-fronded clients can admire their new looks in floor-to-ceiling mirrors as they practice sultry flamingo poses to model in upcoming edition of Avian Vogue.
