Just the other day, after quite a few hours of awkward hand positioning to get the needle in low-angle hairs, I thought I’d try bending the needle. It makes a HUGE difference in the ergonomics. I couldn’t figure out why it makes such a difference, and then I realized: You can adjust the needle angle by slightly rotating the holder in your hand, instead of moving your whole hand.
For what it’s worth.
Got the idea from Bono’s Blend Method. That man knows his stuff.
