With the advent of warmer weather, I have been wearing my hair up quite a bit. I find that ponytails tend to pull and buns do as well. However, hairsticks keep my hair up and don't pull or hurt. I have no idea why the difference, but hey, if it works...
So I went to the dollar store and bought 10 chopsticks for $1. Then , of course, I thought, hey, why not decorate em? This is my first attempt.
Step one, find nail polish that you already own:
Step 2, paint on a couple of coats of one: (after wrapping masking tape on the chopstick to make a nice neat line)
Let it dry and then paint a couple of coats of the second polish. Let dry, peel tape and you have:
A hairstick that your 5 year old might have painted! Tada!
Seriously, not bad, but not great. Some of the polish managed to leak under the masking tape and the polish started to dry before I was done painting, so the result is NOT a nice smooth finish as I had envisioned. Might try wrapping the next one with sock yarn.....
As for how to put my hair up, this was the clearest video.
