Chinese Hairpins Fa Zan

What's Fa Zan in Chinese Culture?

Fa Zan (发簪) is a type of hairpin or hair accessory that was commonly used in ancient Chinese culture. It is a decorative hairpin that is worn by women to hold their hair in place, especially during formal occasions such as weddings, festivals, or other important ceremonies.

Fa Zan hairpins are usually made of precious materials such as gold, silver, jade, or ivory and are often adorned with intricate designs and carvings, such as flowers, birds, and other auspicious symbols. They come in a variety of sizes, from small and delicate to large and ornate, and were often worn in pairs.

In traditional Chinese culture, hair was considered to be a symbol of a woman's beauty and femininity, and the way a woman wore her hair was seen as an important expression of her personality and social status. Therefore, wearing a Fa Zan hairpin was not only a way to keep one's hair in place but also a way to showcase one's taste and status.

How to Wear Fa Zan?

Wearing a Fa Zan hairpin is a traditional practice that requires some skill and practice to master. Here are some general guidelines for how to wear a Fa Zan:

  1. Start by pulling your hair back into a bun or twist. You can use a hair tie or pins to secure your hair in place.
  2. Choose a Fa Zan hairpin that complements your outfit and hairstyle. The size of the hairpin should be proportional to the size of your head and hair.
  3. Hold the hairpin with both hands and position it above your head, with the decorative end facing downward.
  4. Carefully insert the pointed end of the hairpin into your hair, just above the bun or twist.
  5. Gently twist the hairpin clockwise to secure it in place. Be careful not to insert it too deeply or at an angle, as this could cause discomfort or damage to your hair.
  6. Adjust the position of the hairpin so that it sits comfortably and securely in your hair.
  7. Repeat the process with a second hairpin if desired, positioning it on the opposite side of your head.
