No Fuss Wooden Hair Pins
Again, back to all things crafty. I'm soo missing Ligaya & my beading BFF group.
One of the things I made for her, a Kamagong Wooden Hair Pin encrusted with Red Pagoda beads and glass Chili Pepper charms at the end. Besides the regular head clamp that can almost claw through one's scalp, you may try using needle hair pins for a new upstyle 'do.
You can buy fine Kamagong or Narra Needle Sticks at Wellmansons in Quiapo (Priced under P50). The sticks have the standard size drill bit holes in the end where you can start your loop. For this project, only use small hollow beads to keep things lightweight.
Using a hair stick is easy, just twist your hair into a bun or spiral at the back of your head then slowly stick the needle-like hairpin in. Make sure everything's neat and tight for the perfect hold :)
