“Kanzashi” is great!

Have you ever worn “kanzashi” or a Japanese traditional hairpin?

It’s very decorative and beautiful.

Recently I’ve got a good one.

I’m growing my hair now, but it is still short.

BUT!

By using “kanzashi” , I can do my hair up!

Amazing!

I don’t need any hair pins or hair bands.

However I need to apply hair wax to my hair overall and some perm.

I need a few conditions, but I was impressed that!
