    Default Unusual accessories

    My only hair stick just broke (it was designed rather poorly. I'm not too surprised) and while I ordered another one, it's sitting in a box at home while I'm on another continent. I currently have a fine-line watercolor brush stuck through my infinity bun. What are some odd things you've used for hair toys?

    A Sharpie marker, in a pinch! And crochet hooks (but that seems fairly common).

    I've used the back end of a rattail comb when I forgot the stick I wanted in the bathroom once. But, mostly I rely on my varnished wooden dowels as sticks and my bent-over-a-door-knob-base double pointed knitting needles as forks (and my spin pins, of course) and they're all light and easy to carry around so I'm rarely without something to fasten my hair up anymore.

    I've used (clean of course) G-string panties as a hairtie before. Shoe laces also make good hairties. Ice tea spoons make good hairsticks in a pinch.

    The regular sized kind? Didn't the cap snag?

    All of my "hair sticks" are just Star Wars and Super Mario Bros pencils with the metal & eraser end cut off. I don't own any real hair toys yet.

    I used DH's pen when we were out and it was all we had that I could use. It made a good hair stick.

    I've used my bun as a brush holder while live painting. (Plein air at a concert)
    I don't reccomend it, but it works.

    I've used the bottom of calligraphy pens, a wooden spoon, and the mesh from citrus bags (as a snood).

    I own the right tools now.
