Sam McKnight’s Feather Roots: New TikTok Hair Trend

Share This Post

Are you ready to elevate your hair game without the commitment to any hair color or permanent change? Prepare to be swept off your feet by Feather Roots, the latest hair trend on TikTok and turning heads wherever it goes.

Dries Van Noten Autumn/Winter 2020

First strutted on the Dries Van Noten Catwalk in 2020 by the legendary stylist Sam McKnight, Feather Roots has since fluttered its way into the hearts of millions, racking up over a million views on TikTok alone. 

But Feather Roots isn’t just a style statement. It’s an inexpensive and easy way to switch up your look, making it the perfect accessory for festivals, parties, or any event where you want to stand out.

To join the Feather Roots flock, all you need is a dyed ostrich feather, a comb or small brush, and a generous amount of hairspray and gel.

A middle parting works best for this trend, and it’s easier to manage if your hair is in a tight ponytail or bun. But the beauty of Feather Roots is its versatility, so feel free to experiment and adapt the style to suit you.

Here’s a step-by-step guide to achieving the Feather Roots trend:

1. Choose Your Feather

    Pick a feather that matches your vibe for the day. The bolder, the better!

2. Trim Your Feather

    Cut the top and bottom of your feather so it fits the length of your hair parting.

3. Apply Eyelash Glue

    Using a fine-tipped makeup brush or your finger, apply eyelash glue to the stem of the feather (aka the rachis).

4. Attach The Feather

    Once the hair gel is applied, attach the feather in the desired spot, hold it in place, and use your hair dryer to set the gel, ensuring the feather sticks firmly to your hair parting.

5. Smooth and Tidy

    Use your fingers to smooth the feather strands down into your natural hair, then take a comb and hairspray to tidy everything up. And voila! You’ve got yourself a Feather Roots look.

The beauty of Feather Roots is that it’s a trend that encourages creativity. Try different colors and sizes of feathers, or add gemstones and embellishments for a party vibe. You can even use concealer over the parting to make it look more natural. The only limit is your imagination.

Feather Roots is more than just a trend. It’s a celebration of individuality and self-expression. So why not give it a try? It’s a fun and easy way to add a pop of color to your hair.
