Customer Review - Butterfly Cascade Silver Hair Stick

One of our lovely customers made our day yesterday, when she sent us this review of her new Butterfly Cascade Hair Stick, bought from our Etsy shop. With her permission, here is her review:

Short Review:
I LOVE THIS SO MUCH!!!!!!!!!!!

Longer Review:
I fell in love with this hair stick when I saw the picture online. I’ve been looking for a 4 to 5 inch hair stick to put my hair (newly grown to waist length after years with shoulder length hair) into a cinnamon or Chinese bun. I’ve tried the traditional hair sticks sold at places like Claire’s, but they’re usually 8 to 9 inches long, and stick out so far on my tiny head (I’m 5’3”) that they look odd. Not only that, but large hair sticks mean it’s impossible to hug people (almost poked out some relatives’ eyes!) or even drive a car without leaning forward to avoid the stick(s) gouging into the headrest. So I was thrilled to find a dainty little stick that was still sturdy and ‘load-bearing’ enough to hold long hair in place.

I loved the delicate little fairy crystals that hang down from this stick (which is completely gorgeous in its own right even without the dangly sparkles). And when I saw the butterfly on the end I knew I had to have it – it was so beautiful!

It’s always nerve-wracking ordering online (or through a catalog), because you can never be sure that what arrives will be as nice as the picture. Well, I’ve never been more delighted with a purchase ordered sight unseen! The hair stick is at least ten times as beautiful as it was in the picture – the movement of the crystals, the play of light upon both the stick and the crystals, all contribute to its incredible beauty. I’m absolutely delighted.

And the earrings! What a lovely bonus! I usually have a hard time getting earrings to work for me (my small face and short neck means many earrings overpower my face) and so stick to simple teardrops. I thought these earrings, when I saw them, though gorgeous, would overpower my face. But they look wonderful, not too overpowering, but beautifully dramatic while still in perfect proportion. The hook on the wires to keep them fastened is wonderful, since the hook-less wires do sometimes work their way loose.

All in all, this is one of the best gifts I’ve ever bought myself! I’m absolutely thrilled!

I’m hoping to rope a relative with a camera into taking pictures of it in my hair sometime soon, since I don’t own one. But until then know that it’s absolute perfection – in and of itself, of course, but especially In My Hair!

Please accept my profound gratitude for such an exquisite piece of hair jewelry! It’s a true work of art!

Yay! We put a lot of care and effort into making our hair jewelry, so it is great to know that it is so appreciated.

Happy 4th of July!
