How to Put Your Hair up With Chopsticks

Putting up your hair with chopsticks is a popular style that women have loved for centuries.

Hair chopsticks come in a variety of lengths. You’ll find a length that works best for your volume of hair and style. The longest chopsticks are Chinese chopsticks which average about 10.5 inches. More common in the United States are Japanese style chopsticks which are between 8 to 9 inches long, with 9 inches being far more common. Finally, children’s chopsticks are between 5.5 and 6.5 inches long.

You can find chopsticks in a variety of finishes and textures. If you have very fine hair you may want to find hair chopsticks that have a texture throughout the full length of the chopstick. Most chopsticks have a smooth painted finish. If you can use smooth finished chopsticks your selection of hair sticks increases dramatically.

If you have long hair and you’re looking to get it out of your face in an easy, stylish way, do we have the tip for you? This hairstyle looks amazing and is shockingly easy to accomplish – considering you’re putting your hair up only using chopsticks. While you can always pull your long hair back with headbands and hair ties, this technique is not only proven to work, but it’s a jazzy new way you liven up your usual look! Watch the easy-to-follow tutorial below to see how it’s done.

Our apologies to people with shorter hair – trust me, this is a hair trick best done on longer hair. And the thicker, the better. I can give you an idea of what type of hair this works best on.

If you’re rocking that hair type yourself, you should be able to nail this hairstyle! It’s easy to accomplish if you follow these simple steps:

STEP 1: Part your hair as you would (she parts down the center), pulling your hair straight back into a ponytail in your left hand (or your right hand if you’re left-handed).


STEP 2: Using your free hand, flip your pony over the hand holding the base of your hair.


STEP 3: Pull the hair underneath the pony and wrap it around the base of the ponytail as many times as you need to (the longer your hair, the more wrapping you’ll do).


STEP 4: Take your chopstick and push it through the loop you’ve created. It should run along the back of your hand.


STEP 5: Turn the chopstick so it’s facing the way it just came and, pushing it so it’s running along your scalp gently, push it back through to secure. Optional: slide in a second chopstick at a different angle for some added flair.

This hairstyle is secure, even with just one chopstick, and is perfect for ladies with long hair who need their locks to stay back!

There are literally thousands of styles of chopsticks which means you can find a style of chopstick hair accessories to match any occasion. Most Chinese chopsticks have a natural wood finish, and if decorated usually have a shiny metal end to their handle.
