Hairsticks have been in use for thousands of years, and have been found in cultures of the Ancient Egyptians, ROMANS and GREEKS. Although some of these have been jeweled, luxury items, such as the gold hairsticks of Egypt, more common, wooden hairsticks have also been found in cultures such as ROME, suggesting that they were in wide use amongst people regardless of their financial standing. However, the most influential culture on modern hairsticks has been Japanese, and in particular the use of decorative Japanese Kanzashi.
Although many modern hairsticks draw more on the elaborate approach to the design of Kanzashi more than on the simpler designs for functional pins, Kanzashi are used within a far more rigid and traditional environment. Kanzashi are frequently floral in design, especially those dictated by the changing of the seasons and used by Geisha.
HER IGNORANCE OF HISTORY MAKES HER LOOK STUPID IN THE PICTURE.
Seriously? As much as I understand that cultural appropriation is a very real and very important issue, and that racism in all its forms is still among the greatest problems of modern society, I am just tired of what I’ve been reading on this site. 90% of posts on this subject are ignorant accusations, that end up making a valid concern sound ridiculous.
Putting wooden sticks in one’s hair is… not any single ethnic group’s idea, really.

And Greek geometric age hairpins:
Modern Thai hairpin:
Native American hairpins:
How about we stop trying to forcefully and very ignorantly assign “ethnic copyrights” to every single fucking thing? If anything, this makes a joke out of the (very serious) issue of cultural appropriation.
Bottomline; fight me, I’ll keep wearing convenient wooden sticks in my hair, whether they were initially chopsticks or pencils or nail cuticle pushers. The idea of “oh, this piece of wood will do fine in keeping my hair up” belongs to all of fucking mankind.
