Well, I'm really loving them. They hold my hair very securely, they're light weight, and they're more comfortable than using pins or clips. I love that even if I have a bad hair day with messy wimpy curls that just won't hang right, I can do a simple updo very easily and it will look really nice. I did an oily pre-poo last night thinking I'd wash my hair this morning, but I had to rush out suddenly, so I put my hair up with beetnik's sticks, and it looked quite passable!
I ordered one pair from her that's a beautiful reddish-toned wood with three bands of turquoise inlay around the top. It was really hard to choose from the different wood and inlays, but I thought this mix would look good in my hair. I know eventually I'm going to order a pair of her spirally twisted sticks . . .
Curlykey, I'm terrible at taking hair pictures, but I'll try to do some one of these days! In the meantime--I'd love to see YOUR hair with your forks or sticks!
