How to Make Your Own Hairsticks
I love Haarstaebe – they are very hair friendly, easy to use and you can tune the colors very nicely to your own hair color and outfit. Time to get creative and to make some of it yourself – it’s very easy and there are no limits to your imagination. The own production is also much cheaper and really a lot of fun. Soon you could make your own beauties, like these and these ones.
- Holzhaarstaebe. I order mine online . Alternatively, you could buy narrow pipe poles in the hardware store, shorten the desired length and then drill a hole with a drill, or, pure grooves.
- Seconds or 2-component glue
- Metal pens (available in Bastle / Hobbyladen)
- Beads, gems and spacers as desired
That is how it goes:
- Provide material 2. Make your topper together until you like it 3rd and 4th Carefully apply some glue to the pin, then slowly push the beads upwards 5. Add a small amount of glue to the opening of the hair rod 6. Wait a few seconds and then put both parts together.
Approximately Allow to dry upright for 1 day. Have fun with your new hair stick!
