We have a lot of hair in this household!
These are my 3 girls and their hair.
I called this picture Cousin IT
Their hair is similar in a lot of ways but
there are definite differences...
We all 4 have fine slippery hair.
Hard to find anything to hold it
for a decent amount of time besides hair bands.
This is the kid on the Left.
Her hair is long but very fine with a wave to it.
It took a little bit to get the stick in but once in it held well.
Middle kid in the picture.
Very long straight and Thick hair.
Its twisted tight here and still makes a bun like that.
But once I figured out
how to work the Ribbon stick in, it stayed Fairly well..
I think she may need 2 sticks to hold good.
Kid on the right. Her hair is slightly thick and fine.
It curls some and has more body.
I think a shorter stick would have worked better.
But it did hold good and much more comfortable than bobby pins.
My hair is a lot like my girls hair but has a little more "color" to it if you know what I mean??Lol The white hair coming in is coarser and gives my hair more body. Which is a good thing!lol After years of fine slippery hair I have learned how to fix it. The ribbon stick works well in my hair once I figured it out how to twist it in and catch Scalp hair and Bun hair. I can do a high or low bun/twist. But like anything else some days it don't work. My hair wont hold a thing.
So where did the Ribbon Stick come from??? Linda over at Lindercroft She has some beautiful Ribbon Sticks. She sells them in her etsy shop. Her blog entry showed a beautiful Ebony Ribbon Stick she was working on.. They are absolutely beautiful! She also has other Hair Sticks she has made!!I am considering her Toothpick Hair sticks as they look like they may hold my hair well...
So go have a look see! They would make a perfect Christmas Present for that person who likes unusual pretty hair things or handcrafted items.
