A cute summer trend is colored hair extensions.
"You don't have to bleach out your hair then color," says Tracy Stout, hair technician at Jaime Lee & Co. in Olympia. "You can have glowing neon strands in one minute."
That means no damage to your hair. It also means no damage to chickens.
Recent controversy surrounding the breeding and killing of chickens to provide the soft colorful hairpieces that many salons offer prompted the growing trend in colored hair extensions.
“It’s better for your hair, too, there is no fade and it looks real,” says Stout.
Jaime Lee is a cruelty-free salon and has never offered feather extensions, but Stout says the hair extensions can be made to look feathery.
"We can even custom color them, like with raccoon stripes," she says.
Other colors offered are Cupcake Pink, Cherry Bomb, Virgin Pink, Napalm Orange and Blue-haired Freak. They sell for $10 each.
