This is to be able to get your hair into a high or low bun to position your slide over. The stick is there to secure the bun and hold it firmly in place. Depending on how thick your hair is, you should try The Jasmine and The Black Orchid Hair Slide if you have finer hair. If your hair is very thick and curly, you should try The Moon Flower Hair Slide. To see our full range of Hair Sticks, Hair Forks, Hair Combs and Hair Brushes visit the shop here.
