Made these 4 hairsticks one night this week. Some new colors that I have not worked with before. In the first picture, Green and Black, Pink and Black, Red, White and Blue (old color), Orange and Black. The pins are around 3/4 inch at the widest point, they feature a double taper. I am told that the double taper helps to hold them in the hair. The largerst is 7 1/2 inches long, and the smallest one, the Orange one is 6 1/4 long. All have a section that the hair gets wrapped on of 5 1/4 inch. And for those of you who don’t know what a hairstick or hair needle is, it is a decorative stick that someone who has long hair wraps up their hair with in a bun and sticks it with one of these hairsticks. The last picture is of my wife who stole the first one that I did, and has been using it almost everyday since. They are fun to make. Haven’t been selling them yet, but hope to. All sticks are finished with 5 coats of sprayed on conversion varnish, and are very smooth and hard. Thanks for your comments, questions and the fact that you took time to look.
