    Hair Sticks

    If you do a Google image search for the term “hair sticks” you’ll find dozens of creative ideas for hair sticks. Some will cost you a week’s salary, but one of the most interesting updos I have ever seen was at a holiday party recently wear a woman had two plastic chopsticks with Chinese characters engraved. It was a great conversational piece as several people asked the meaning throughout the night. It didn’t hurt that she was absolutely gorgeous and sporting a dress that showed plenty of cleavage. I asked about where  she bought the chopsticks, she said “Oh, I just asked for an extra set at my local Chinese restaurant . . . they gave them to me for free.”

    As you can see hair accessories need not be expensive or complicated to be effective here are some others that you might want to consider

    • Pinned into a ponytail holder
    • Bobby pins with decorative attachments
    • Hair clips, jeweled, gold or silver
    • Jeweled ponytail holders
