This hair style was inspired by a style that Ms.El posted for me once. Since then I've tried many variations!
Step one- gather hair into a pony tail, but do not use a band, simply hold the tail in your hand. Place a hair stick underneath the pony tail.
Step 2- Wrap hair around the stick going over and under. Depending on how you want this style to look, you can either leave part of your tail out (as shown with these direction, or wrap nearly all of it, leaving only the tiniest amount.
Once you have wrapped the hair, while holding the tail, twist the stick counter clockwise. Depending on the thickness of your hair, and the distance you held your pony tail away from your head, you will either twist once or twice.
Once the stick reaches the top of the head lift the tip slightly and insert at top of crown. You will be bringing the top of the stick staight upward. Note the stick position in the pictures above and below. When the tip goes in, the top is closer to the ground. In the next picture where I'm sliding the stick down, the top is closer to the ceiling.
Slide the stick downward. If this feels too tight, remove stick and start again, twisting less, or holding the hair out farther from your head.
If you'd like, you can add an additional stick to the knot to help it lay the way you want it to.
The Hair-Stick Knot complete.
Another way you can do this style which works well with thicker hair, is to wrap your hair only once or twice, twist and secure with one hair stick. Using the remainder of the tail, wrap again, twist and secure. You can see a picture of this style in the Styling Station logo. It is the picture showing it from the side.
