Welcome to the Art for Hair Blog!

We love creating hand-crafted hair sticks, hair forks and matching jewelry to show off the beauty of long hair! Our blog features our designs, different ways to put long hair up, as well as how to care for and grow long hair and features on other Etsy craftspeople.

Custom Butterfly Silver Hair Stick and Earrings

One of our lovely customers recently ordered this custom butterfly hair stick. It is a silver-plated hair stick decorated with sapphire blue and violet Swarovski crystals and a silver-plated butterfly. The crystals are faceted to catch and reflect the light beautifully. We also made matching earrings - we think they'll look stunning worn together!

If you would like your own custom design, don't hesitate to contact us!
