Hair Stick : What is it?

Hair Sticks

Hair sticks are tapered or non-tapered sticks two to 12 inches in length used for holding elaborate hairstyles in place. They are made of various materials such as wood, bamboo, plastic, stone, bone, ivory, glass, and synthetic materials. They can be plain or elaborately designed with beads, gemstones, ornaments, and carvings. They are available in different styles and designs.

Hair sticks have been around for centuries. They were popularly worn by Japanese and Chinese women in the past. They were also used in the court of Louis XIV in France. They became popular in the west in the 1920s when all things oriental were the rage.
