View Full Version : First Hair stick

October 31st, 2018, 01:54 PM
My husband surprised me for our first anniversary and found me this beautiful hairstick! (I'm surprised; 1. because since we're flat broke we weren't doing anything special. And 2. Because the man apparently listens to my hair babble?!?!)
How and when did you get your first hair toy?

Is the tip a crystal?

Yep. Lol he found an etsy shop where could pick the color/tip and decided on alligator green because I'm from Florida.

Woah! Thats super nice!
I think I had my first flexi-8 2 years ago, and my first hair stick could have been around a year ago! I upcycled an old painbrush handle; its my strongest and favourite stick ever!

Beautiful stick, beautiful bun, and beautiful story! Happy anniversary and happy hairstick!

Congratulations! What a kind man. :) I bought my first few a couple of weeks ago. One from amazon, two from Etsy, and I bought a couple of flexi 8s. My hair is still barely long enough to use the sticks, but the two I bouht from Etsy were so beautiful I just had to have them. I told myself I'd grow into them.

Wow! Very nice. Happy Anniversary! I actually just got my very first flexi-8 last week! I love it. Canít wait til Iím able to put my hair up with a hair stick.

I found a woodcarver who made me 3 plain sticks in different woods. They were my first sticks that werenít chopsticks.

I bought mine from Lilla Rose maybe a month or so ago. I bought two Flexi-8s and a basic wooden stick, and I got a free hairpin on top of it. I'm pretty new to this hair toy stuff.

Congratulations on your anniversary!

What a sweet man, the stick is very pretty!
My first hair sticks were just old paintbrush stems that I prepared by myself, nothing fancy. I did order a couple of wooden hair forks from a net store.
My DH hasn't gifted me any hair toys but he said he will save me some elk bones from this years hunt if I'd like to craft something out of them. :D

Lovely gift:D and it looks very nice in your bun.
I don't have a hair stick yet... and I'm waiting for my first flexi. I might order a stick soon too - a couple of days ago I actually managed to put my hair in a disc bun with a pencil and boy , it was holding! That's a new milestone:D. But I'm still very new to the hair toy world.

That one is really beautiful! Looks perfect on your hair, your bf is such a nice guy. And yep, sometimes they listen our hair babbling :p

My first hair stick was a very cheap dark wood one with a carved bunny on top :)

Nice man! :) Great that you can *use* the stick... when I bought my first stick, my hair was still short but I had plans. :D

Congrats and happy anniversary! Sounds like you got a good one if they pick up on the hair babble enough to pick out this beautiful stick!

I started with some I found at sally and my first 'real' (quality) stick was a set of ketylos I picked up on the swap board here.

Love the action shots - hope there are more to come!

I have no interesting story to tell. I just bought my first stick on Ebay. :D
