Never in my wildest dreams did I ever think I would get into hairtoys the way that I have.  There are some delightfully creative people out there who make beautiful things to hold up one’s hair. 

Today is Hairsticks day.  I’m actually waiting for some new hairtoys in the mail, so there will be at least one more post on hairtoys.  Maybe two. 😉

The plastic sticks:

The ones with feathers have beads in the center:

The handmade wooden sticks:

The first 4 are from Mamacat, the next is a Papadonh, the Shileleigh is from Ron Quattro, the curved sticks are made by Blondiesturn, and the last three are from Ketylo.  The Mamacats and Papadonh are made from Dymondwood and are safe for use in damp hair. 

Some beaded sticks:

The first single and two sets are from Ron Quattro; the stainless steel spikes are from Argus Designs; the bone and single long stick with green leaf are from a designer I do not remember 😳 ; the short sticks with red beads were a gift; the short twisted bone is another I don’t remember (its mate broke); the long single black stick and final three pairs are from Cute-Cam Hairsticks.  The pair across the top are actually 7-1/2″ African porcupine quills, also from Argus.  They really do work! 😀

These are called HairSprays.  The tops are beaded wire that, after you insert the sticks, you arrange around your updo as desired.  The pic doesn’t do them justice, truly.

These next ones are Mei Fas from Bazner Studio.  These are mighty little sticks that hold up a lot of hair!  I was fortunate to get these at wholesale.

That pic doesn’t do them justice at all.  Three of those sets I bought last summer.  Here is a close-up that was taken outside in natural light:

Goodness!  I still have Bunjii, hairslides, and assorted “other” hairtoys to go.  This may take a few more days to get through. 😉
