This beautiful fantasy feather hair stick will add color and interest to your braids and updos! It’s a bold design that can be worn at work, or for an evening out.
MEASUREMENTS + MATERIALS
✭ The leather feather measures approximately 5″ wide x 1.75″ high at the widest and highest points.
✭ Fastens with an artisan crafted aluminum wire hair stick (usable stick length = approx 7″)
✭ The holes for the hair stick are spaced about 3.25″ apart, so it will hold a medium sized section of hair.
✭ Materials include: tooling leather, acrylic paint, sealant, Swarovski crystal, glass beads, chain, aluminum wire.
The leather feather was hand cut and carved from premium tooling leather, then hand painted in shimmering shades of silver, aqua, teal, sapphire and cobalt The color has been sealed with a protective top coat. The leather is embellished with Swarovski crystal and glass beads in shades of blue.
It fastens with 7.75″ aluminum wire hair stick, hand crafted by Nicholas and Felice. The usable length of the stick is about 7″. The hairstick has a pretty spiral at the end, with a decorative chain with glass bead dangles.
Please note that aluminum is a bit more malleable than some of the other types of wire, so this stick can be bent if you’re not gentle. Some of my customers have felt that the aluminum was too soft for their liking, while others have been perfectly happy with it. I’ve used the aluminum sticks in my (thick!) hair, even when it was waist length – so I think this is truly a matter of personal preference.
The space between the holes determines how much hair the barrette will hold. This one has a hole spacing of 3.25″, which is a medium-small spacing. Thus, it should hold a medium sized section of hair. If your hair is fine or shorter length, you may want to use it in conjunction with an elastic. If your hair is very long or thick, this piece will probably serve you best for half ups and partial updos.
