How many of you long-haired lasses have been in a situation where you’d do anything to get your locks out of your face but there isn’t a clip or a rubber band to be found? Maybe you forgot to bring a fastener when you showed up to work at a lab or your hair swings into your eyes every time you lean over to pick up the baby’s carrier or you unexpectedly spend an afternoon at a windy seaside. Long hair is lovely, but I'm ready to chop it all off when it gets in the way.
I’ve prepared a 90-second (okay, 91-second) video on how to twist long hair up with nothing but a hair stick. Your hair must fall to about your shoulders or longer for this to work. This isn’t an updo for a big event, but rather a very utilitarian twist for those times when you need to secure long hair and you’ve got nothing but a pencil.
Please note: I misspeak in the video. You will rotate the stick 360 degrees, not 180.
