Like all good things, trends and moods come to an end. The feather extensions you loved last month are now making you crazy and you want them out. Now. But they are attached firmly and you aren't sure how to remove them. It's only a little bit of hair, but you don't want to cut them out.
No worries. There is no reason to resort to such dramatic methods. 15 minutes from now (by the time you find the right tool in a drawer downstairs) you'll be feather-free. All you need is a pair of pliers with a texture on the "plates". Most commonly, you'll find ridged pliers. These will work just fine. If you happen to be crafty and have a pair of crimping pliers handy, those are even better.
Most feather extensions are attached with microbeads. The hair and feathers are inserted into the bead and clamped closed. To safely remove the feathers and bead, without damaging your hair, you just need to crimp the bead in the opposite direction. If you try doing this with flat pliers, I wish you luck. I'm not saying it can't be done, but I am saying it is a pain. You're going to need pliers with some kind of texture. That's why crimping pliers, used for jewelry making, work the best.
Ta da! That's it. Easy and painless.
