From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia: A hair stick (かんざし, Kanzashi) is a straight, pointed device, usually between five and nine inches in length, used to hold a person's hair in place in a hair bun or similar hairstyle. Unlike many hair pins, which are usually small and quite simple, hair sticks are often more elaborate and decorative, and feature jeweled or carved designs that make them stand out as pieces of luxury jewelry. The price of hair sticks varies greatly depending on the style, materials and craftsmanship - the cheapest pairs of plastic hairs ticks can cost less than a dollar, while a single, hand-crafted hair stick by an artist can cost over two hundred dollars.
