I am so excited to show you guys this amazing hair hack. I’m going to show you how to use this trendy new hair tool that looks like a simple stick.

It’s actually not a new hair tool, but it’s trending right now. It’s a hair stick, also known as a hairpin or a hair bodkin. I’ll show you how to use it.

Tools and materials:

  • Comb/brush
  • Hair stick/hair bodkin/hairpin
Gathering hair

1. Comb and gather

Comb your hair and untangle any knots.

Pull your hair back like you’re about to make a ponytail and hold it with one hand.

Take the hair stick with the other hand.

Folding hair

2. Fold it in

Hold the hair stick above the gathered hair, then flip the ends of the hair up, folding the hair over the hair stick.

Twisting hair

3. Twist and secure

Twist the hair stick twice so the hair wraps around it. 

Securing hair

Securing hair

Now, while holding the twist in place, push the smaller end of the hair stick into the hair at the top of the back of the head, sliding it down against the scalp and securing the twisted hair in place.
