I thought of this myself, while I was trying to fall asleep, actually. It's my first one, so I hope it's alright.

I'm part of one and found in eight.
I have no hands, yet I create.
I have no face, yet I have hairs.
All of my circles are actually squares.
I may have a stick.
I'll save you a pic.

What am I?

Hint:

The hairs and the stick are connected.

Following up on the answer from Alex, I believe the answer is

Microsoft Paint

I'm part of one and found in eight.

Paint was included in the first version of Windows, and in Windows 8

I have no hands, yet I create.

Paint has no "hand-grabby" tool

I have no face, yet I have hairs.

The paintbrush tool

All of my circles are actually squares.

Paint is based on pixels, not vector graphics. Everything is composed of squares.

I may have a stick.

Paint brush

Ctrl+s

A motherboard in a computer

First of all, it's part of:

One computer, but sometimes the same motherboard may be found in eight release versions of the computer

It has no hands and can be used to create almost anything:

Literally computers can make almost anything.

It has no face, yet:

The internal circuitry can develop hairs (called tin whiskers)

All it's circles are squares because:

Onscreen the circles it can draw are displayed as pixels which are square

I may have a stick:

A USB stick

I'll save you a pic:

More like download a pic from the internet

Are you a:

Camera

I'm part of one and found in eight.

This one I don't get. Perhaps related to the exposure time like 1/8?

I have no hands, yet I create.

A camera creates images without having hands.

I have no face, yet I have hairs.

It may have cross hairs.

All of my circles are actually squares.

The lens is circular but the image is square/rectangular.

I may have a stick.

A selfie stick or camera stand.

I'll save you a pic.

A camera saves a picture to the memory card.

$\endgroup$
  • $\begingroup$ Wow. Another interesting answer that I wasn't looking for. Maybe I should give another hint... I may wait a while longer first. $\endgroup$ – mbomb007 May 1 '16 at 20:09

This is a very fragmented answer but maybe?

Bit

Part of one, found in eight

Eight bits in one byte

All of my circles are actually squares

A bit is often times represented as a square that is either filled or not, so zeros (and ones) are represented as squares

I may have a stick

"Stick" is another term for a flash memory drive, made up of bits

I'll save you a pic

Pictures can be saved on memory, again made of bits.

Weird answer:

An Angle

I'm part of one and found in eight.

1 can have a carat at the top, so it has an angle in it. An 8 has two angles that meet at the center, so it can be found (twice) in 8

I have no hands, yet I create.

You can create geometric shapes with it

I have no face, yet I have hairs.

You will sometimes add hashes (hairs) onto the legs of an angle

All of my circles are actually squares.

An angle of 360 degrees is represented by a square

I may have a stick.

The legs (which are connected to the hairs)

I'll save you a pic.

... This one I have no answer for.

$\endgroup$
  • $\begingroup$ Carat shares the '6' key for me. $\endgroup$ – mbomb007 May 2 '16 at 21:01
  • $\begingroup$ @mbomb007: I think Chelsea's talking about the angle in the number 1, not the key. $\endgroup$ – Deusovi May 2 '16 at 21:08

Ok here's another try

A pilaster panel

They are all part of a set of eight.

It has no hands yet it creates:

art, and all the emotions associated with the observation of art

It has no face yet it has hairs:

The texture of the surface could be described as hairy, and the wood undoubtedly has fine hairs

All of its circles are squares:

The border circling the artwork itself is square, and is inscribed with squares

I may have a stick:

It's made of oak wood, and is shaped like a long rectangular stick

I'll save you a pic:

As a piece of artwork it is regularly photographed

And for the hint:

The hairs and the stick are one and the same, it's carved from wood

$\endgroup$
  • $\begingroup$ Since when does wood have fine hairs? Overall, I don't think this fits enough of the clues. $\endgroup$ – mbomb007 May 2 '16 at 3:54
  • 1
    $\begingroup$ The grain of wood can be compared to hair, and weathered wood also has "hair" like fragments jutting out: previews.123rf.com/images/frankljunior/frankljunior1004/…, depends if you're being poetic - but I do agree, certainly not the best fit, but you never know! $\endgroup$ – Liam Daly May 2 '16 at 4:03
  • $\begingroup$ Also, I hadn't heard of a pilaster panel before. The answer is something that the average user would know what it is. $\endgroup$ – mbomb007 May 2 '16 at 16:19

Perhaps it's

The letter e

I am part of one and found in eight

Both words contain the letter

I have no hands, yet I create.

Letter is not found in hands but it is in create

I have no face, yet I have hairs.

Metaphor for the leg part of the lower case letter e

All of my circles are actually squares.

Visual metaphor for describing the difference between upper case E and lower case E

I may have a stick.

The leg thing again

I'll save you a pic.

Maybe a keyboard shortcut, unsure on this one

$\endgroup$
  • $\begingroup$ No. The "letter e" riddle is a separate riddle, and again, it doesn't definitively fit the clues. It may even have been done before on this site, not sure. $\endgroup$ – mbomb007 May 2 '16 at 3:57
  • 3
    $\begingroup$ @mbomb007 There can be multiple riddles with the same answer. $\endgroup$ – f'' May 2 '16 at 3:59
  • $\begingroup$ Sure, but if I'm going to spend my time making a riddle, it's going to be unique. $\endgroup$ – mbomb007 May 2 '16 at 16:18

Could it be

Hair brush

6.

Usually we prefer to use a hair brush before a pic is taken

5.

Hair brush has a handle to hold

4.

Hair brush has groups of bristles which actually look like squares

3.

hair brush has bristles which means hair

2.

Hair brush can be used to by hair dresses to create new designs

  1. Not sure
