As far as I can tell we don't have a thread for this - action shots of new hair toys. Beware, it can be dangerous to your wallet! :p

This just arrived today, my new fork from TempestMoonStudio on Etsy. I was worried that the copper might not look good with my hair, but to my surprise, I think it does :)

These also came today from Yeheveniia on Etsy: (Please excuse the boxes and suitcases, we are gradually packing and preparing to move)

These are all my new ones:
https://i.imgflip.com/2c25rx.jpg (https://imgflip.com/i/2c25rx)via Imgflip Meme Generator (https://imgflip.com/memegenerator)

The bottom one is a U pin, and it’s very lightweight, so I ordered like twelve of them.
The next one is a purchase from a member here that they got from Lilia rose.
The blue and green acrylics are from Etsy and I love them. They add a pop of color to my buns.
The top on is from Amazon, and I think it’s got little Zirconium jewels towards the top . It’s a bit heavier than I’d like, but it’s very sparkly and cute.

I’d like some TTs, or LadyIduns, or WEIIs, but they’re too heavy for my fine tresses. Maybe I can get a speacial order done, but I’ll have to save up for that.

Sarahlabyrinth: Those look great! The copper definitely goes well. Is the gold foil stick the cherry wood one? I am waiting on that to arrive.

AutobotsAttack: Those are all lovely! Have you looked into Hairjems on Etsy? She's got some lightweight sparklies that hold fairly well.

These arrived today along with some oils from Nightblooming:

The first one in the left was my first purchase about a month ago... Never knew forks existed for hair until I became a member so thank you lhc! The next 5 are from MD Wooden Art (https://www.etsy.com/ca/shop/MDWoodenArt) ( I'll tell you guys about them in another thread!) just received last week!
The very large square fork my DH made me! It's one of my fav, I like the weight of it. He made it for me last weekend.
The black stick is actually a chopstick from our fav sushi restaurant.
The rest I have made myself

Assuming that's your natural color on your scalp hair under the bun, I think the fork will look even better on your natural hair color. Such a nice warm brown.

Here's my VojkoArt deer antler 2 prong fork (https://www.etsy.com/au/listing/613553974/hair-chopsticks-hairdressing-hair-stick?show_sold_out_detail=1&frs=1) that arrived last week, doing a fairly good imitation of tree bark. It's smooth, light, sturdy and has great bun-glide.

As for the rest of my newbies, you'll usually find them in the relevant hairtoy maker threads. :cool:

Thanks, GG! I was a latecomer to antler hair accessories because I wasn't sure they'd get through customs, but now I have quite a few that are so, so easy to wear and are great neutrals. So yup, I love them too! :crush:

I looked for a thread similar to this one. I know people show off toys under name brand threads.
I wanted to show what my sister sent me, but it is not a Name brand we normally use. It is lovely
blingly and will be great for a wedding in Aug. I wore it yesterday for Mother's Day just to feel special. It is
actually a comb. However it construction allowed it to be used as a slide which is more secure.

The only store I've seen hair sticks and hair slides in, is in old town Stockholm and they sell "viking stuff", but I don't think that they have hair sticks anymore. At least not on their web store.

I really like them, Stray! Esp the dark turquoise, that color looks very beautiful with your hair, in a subtle yet intense contrast :blossom:

Beautiful collection Stray :) MBs are really hard to beat in my opinion. They are stunning, lightweight (so perfect for anyone whose hair isn't super long or heavy) and they slide in so easily.

The metal ones are from this Etsy shop: https://www.etsy.com/se-en/shop/Hvitolg

And they're not that new, I have had them since September. I had only one metal hair fork before these, and it's really sturdy, but these are quite delicate, I need to be careful when inserting them. But I'm really happy with them, they're so pretty. The three prong fork was just bigger than I thought, but I think I can use it anyway.

The acrylics are from swap board, and they just arrived after being on their way a really looong time (customs?). I'm kinda happy they arrived first now, because for I while ago a decided I need a real hair toy time out, but now I have something new anyway. And I just love acrylics!

Stray they look straight beautiful on you!

It's because of all your action shots I had to order some mapleburls for myself. That eva one is realllllyyy coool too!


yeah, I had been stalking mb's etsy for a while trying to get a feel for it. I was surprised that I didn't even get a notification about the sale it was just because of my super stalker mode that I read it on his announcement. Anddd I didn't get a notification for when he put new forks out so I guess you just have to keep checking his store for new goodies/sales and be quick with it??

I know I was almost going to be stingy and keep the sale info to myself until after I picked out the ones I wanted first. But I felt guilty and had to share with my peeps.

Good thing I still got the ones I wanted, I'm going to give it to karma on that one :meditate:

Ohhh that's so flattering hahaha. :o

For me these will be the last hair toys i get for now, i need to save up some money. I have plenty already though and will try to use as many as i can. Might do the hair toy a day challenge. :)

doedeer they are from outnumberednovelties on etsy.

they are the first and only custom anything I've ever done. I got to pick my own colors too (no extra charge either).
I wish I would've got a mini oval too just to try. I also have a pair of acrylic hair sticks from him and they are stunning and sooo smooth.

You have really good taste/an eye for color! Prettiest ONNs I've ever seen, and they complement each other too :).

Love this bow + snood combo I got, will be easily outgrown but by now it keeps my houdini hair contained and I love the vintage look.

Hope they accept custom orders so I can get a bigger one in the future.

Yay I am glad I did! I was thinking the same, I would like to make one with a satin cord to secure around the bun and maybe incorporate “pearls” or any other ornament over it hmm

bparnell75 it really is a timeless style. I would have loved to see someone back in the day (in that time I was a little girl) sporting interesting updos like you did, that would have drawn my attention to hair earlier :flower:

Very elegant indeed! I'd love to see more of these styles being worn but I don't think it's all too popular nowadays

I wasn’t until not long ago, I can say I like them more and more everyday and are an easy way to protect hair and give some interest to a plain bun.
