    For appearance, any of them can be beautiful. For anchoring my hair, only sturdy wood has consistently proven useful.

    I've only tried and bought acrylic hairsticks.

    I voted wood for the anesthetic, but I find comfortable acrylic sticks too.

    Metal is currently my fave, but plastic/acrylic comes close second.
    I admire beautiful grain woods but they're harder to clean and the pandemic has pushed my germophobia to uncharted territories . Plus they'd turn purple with prolonged contact with my hair.

    I have many toys and many different materials that they come in.

    When it comes to toys to put my hair up I love my metal sticks and swerve from Lillia Rose the most because they are the sturdiest.

    I love all my hair toys though. It all depends on the style!

    Metal U pins have been my go-to for over a year now. They hold a LWB on my fine hair all day without pulling or snagging. I have several hair sticks made from wood that I wear on special occasions but they are a little heavy for everyday wear for me since I'm prone to migraines.

    Bahaha, brilliant typo


    I like most materials. I love the beauty of wood grains, colours and chatoyancy, and I love the variety of colours and patterns of acrylic. I do love natural wood but also dyed wood (especially dyed burl) but being waterproof is important sometimes so acrylic comes into its own there. The vast majority of my forks are wood, but my sticks are about half acrylic and half wood. I like the look of slim metal sticks and forks, and I have lots of flexi-8s, but metal sticks are too thin for me and I think I prefer untopped forks in my own hair so metal doesn't feature very prominently in my collection other than 3 forks, and the flexis because I have no choice about them being metal. (I also have a lot of glass and gemstone beads to make my own 8-clips.) I love the look of leather slide clips but don't own any.

    So yeah, probably about 50/50 between acrylic and wood for me - most of my forks are wood but that's only because acrylic forks are a lot more expensive and less easily found than wooden ones.
    Length goal well and truly met, now just seeing how it grows ...
