By popular (and by popular, I mean not) demand, here is one of my infamous Microsoft Paint tutorials :-D

You'll need:

*a dow rod about the circumference of a pencil
*access to a belt sander and bandsaw
(all below are optional)
  *eyescrews (if you want bead tassles)
  *beads and hemp

^*^First, cut the dow rod into even sections (however long you want your sticks to be)

^*^Then gently and evenly press the end of the dow rod to the sander and twirl slowly until you have the tip you want.

^*^Put an eyescrew on and attach bead tassles if desired

^*^Paint and seal with fixative

^*^Thread hemp through bead. Place on top of stick. Then, holding the hemp firmly in place, wrap tightly. Apply 90 second epoxy liberally. This takes massive patience and oerhaps the sacrifice of your fingers :-P.

Hope that helps. :-D

I had that same question, but apparently you are supposed to make a bun in the middle of the back of your head and stick the sticks in where your last piece of hair is to secure it.  (more or less)  It will be a bit loose the first time you try it, but practice makes perfect!

Also, if you want to use just one, you can make a twist that starts at the bottom of your hair line near the neck, pulling the twist up towards the crown of your head.  Stick one stick in the twist and pull it clockwise until it is back at your crown.  Even though the stick shouldn't have come out of your hair, push it into the twist further.   It should stay now.  Arange hair that is sticking out.

I'm sure that last one was a bit confusing, but its the best I could do!

 Sorry, I don't mean to advertise so shamelessly, but I just started my website and I am looking for some start up business.


Nothing wrong with that advertising Smiley You even told us how to make them ourselves if we don't want to pay you for them. You're awesome Smiley I wish I wore hairsticks but I own a couple super cute pairs and I NEVER use them.. I can never convince myself that I like how I look with them on better than just having my hair down.. lol

I don't seem to be the same today as I was yesterday.

you should charge more for these - at least $10, I would say.
