After launching a new product line dedicated to hair accessories I wanted to share a few videos with you for how I envisioned the pieces being used. The hair sticks take some practice and the hair pins I designed are more decorative in nature and not super rigid to withstand twisting.
Below is a quick video of how to use a hair stick to make a bun. It's the same concept as using a pen, pencil or chopstick but the twisted wire in my hairpins allows the stick to hold your hair longer and more securely so that you are not playing with it constantly!
Briefly, pull your hair back like you would to put it in a ponytail. The twist at least once (I find this makes it easier to wrap around the wire). Place the hair stick under the twisted hair and turn clockwise until it no longer turns and the hair feels secure. You can then push the hair stick through the bun at a downward angle and it should hold the hair. ***This takes a bit of practice but once you have it down you are set!
If you have longer hair than I do, there are many more options and YouTube is a great resource! I found so many good videos that I'm not even sure which one to share. Ha!
For the hair pins, I would suggest first making a bun and securing it with bobby pins or however you typically secure your bun. You can then squeeze the prongs and gently push the pin in behind the bun next to the scalp. The waves are designed to help keep the pin in place and prevent it from falling out of your hair (that would be the worst...)!
If you have any questions, please let me know. I am happy to help!
