Have you used hairsticks before?
I remember in school using pens to put our hair up. You’d twist your hair up into a kind of French roll / bun and put a pen in your hair to keep it in place. It’s actually a really easy way to style long hair. Plus, as you’re not pulling it through a hairband, or using strong clips, you don’t risk damaging or breaking your hair. A lovely reader who bought my ebook contacted me as she makes hairsticks that are amazingly detailed. She sent me some to try and I think they look so much better than a pen in your hair!
How-to: Easy hairsticks hairstyle
- Pull your hair into a low pony
- Twist down, then up into a pleat (like a French roll)
- Tuck the end of your hair inside the pleat
- Push hairstick through to secure the roll. I have used two crossed over as this holds better.
Why not try hairsticks with braids?
I think they add a pretty detail to these styles, and I was surprised how well they held in my hair. I haven’t used any bobby pins in these styles, just the hairsticks.
