I was at the doctor's today (yep, all the travelling finally got to me, poor me, sniff sniff), anyhoo, I saw a perfectly respectable looking woman with a huge ass chopstick in her hair. WTF?!! I've seen this many many times now, in movies, on the streets...Why do people in America think it's an Asian thing to wear chopsticks in ones' hair? No No No! Women in Asia never use chopsticks to style their hair, chopsticks are for food not hair! If you tell a woman in China this, she would laugh her ass off!
Traditionally (like before 1900s), after they style their hair, Chinese women like to put some ornaments on the hair, like a string of pearls or a cluster of gemstones or maybe a flower (see below, btw, if you ever wonder what I look like, I look a lot like the pretty lady in the picture, hehehe...)
