If you were considering going to the Sterling Renaissance Festival, you may want to look the part (at least a little bit). If you're not sure what to wear or how your hair should be done, they can help you out with that.

The Sterling Renaissance Festival is still going on for a few more weeks, and with all the goodies and fun they offer it's definitely an event you don't want to miss this year. In this week's "98 Seconds with Naomi Lynn," I got a crash-course on the some of the proper hairstyles and clothing, but we're just going to focus on the hair.

Now, I don't know about you, but I'm terrible at doing my own hair. I'm even worse when it comes to those fancy up-dos and such, but luckily there are people at the Sterling Renaissance Festival that will do it for you. We stopped by the "KJ Craftworks" booth to get "hairsticks." Hairsticks look a lot like chopsticks, but they hold your hair as if you were wearing a ponytail holder or hair clips. But the good thing about these hairsticks is they don't break or damage your hair. And when you take them out, they leave you with beautiful waves (instead of a line like a hair tie would).

They decided to do a French Twist in my hair. And the best part of the experience? They actually teach you how to do the look yourself. You also get a packet of info on the hairsticks, and other basic looks you can create with them. You have to buy the sticks, but they will do your hair for free. Then you can spend the rest of your day looking like you belong in the 1500s. You can see the hair demo in the video at the top of this page (unfortunately, we had to speed it up. Again, 98 seconds is not enough time to get all the info in, but you can still get the idea).

The Sterling Reniassance Festival has tons of other booths and vendors to check out, from places to rent and buy clothing (so you can REALLY look the part), to jewelry to games, and everything else in between. There are also a variety of shows from family-friendly performances, to jokes and stories just for the adults. The festival runs every Saturday and Sunday from now until August 13th.
