Strength in Sticks
I have always loved long hair and one of the great things about having it is all the ways that it can be played with. It can be curled, braided, pinned, frizzed, straightened and fastened.
One of the best ways to fasten hair is with a stick or two. Using hair sticks is easier on the hair than elastics and the designs are endless ranging from simple wood like chop sticks to intricate carved bone and beading.
Etsy is an online shop for artisans to sell their wares and in my opinion is one of the best locations I have found to find hair sticks from many different vendors. Below you will find twelve Etsy shops that I especially like because of their designs.
Things to Keep in Mind While Shopping
- Shipping Costs -- every artisan will have different shipping costs some are more reasonable than others.
- Return Policy -- like shipping it may be different with each artisan.
- Choose the sellers that have the best policies and feedback.
- Familiarize yourself with Etsy's site policies and FAQ.
