How to make Hair stick?

Actually, it seems a bit odd question to me. But I will answer this coz you are asking me. Many of you are searching for DIY Hair stick Ideas.

Here I am with the easiest way of making DIY Hairsticks at home. For this, you’ll need a pencil sharpener or blade and a piece of wooden stick. Stick should not be too thick.

Choose the wooden piece as the diameter of your small finger. Length can be varied as per your need and hair length. First of all, take that piece of wood and cut it into the desired length.

If its diameter is small enough to fit into your pencil sharpener then you have to simply shave it. Shave it as a pointed end pencil.

If your wooden stick is thick and can’t be fit into your sharpener then you use blades. Give it a shape like a pencil, pointed at one end and blunt at another. You can also give different shapes to the other end.

Rub the surface of the piece to give it a smooth even texture.

After you get the desired shape and size, coat it with nail paint primer Or just take your transparent nail enamel. You can simply use wood paint primer to coat it.

Now you can use it directly. Or just paint the body with the color of your choice. You can decorate it with jewels like rings, stones or chains.
