I finally let my hair grow out again, and it's quite long so it's always into things.  I needed a way to keep it up out of the way when I'm working, so I made some haircombs for myself.

The wavy piece in the middle is because my hair is very fine and won't behave.  This works for me.

Pretty cool and I like the Celtic knot designs on the heads (wood-burned?)  I don't think I've ever seen your wiggly middle teeth on haircombs before, but, I can understand how that irregular shape would help keep a person's tresses in place.  My hair is only like a quarter of an inch long, so I don't have any problems keeping mine under control!  Grin

Yes, woodburned.  I haven't tried carving these yet, but soon...

I kept my hair very short, about an inch long all over for a long time.  I retired in 2015 and decided to let it grow.  It's clear down my back now.  I didn't know hair could grow so fast.

Very pretty, I like that by necessity you had to come up with a unique design. I would love to see one in your hair Smiley.

These are lovely! How do you use them? Ive been thinking lately that I need to get/make a comb (for hair combing) instead of using the cheap plastic ones I always end up with so these are very inspiring.
Do you cut them with a machine?

I do the basic blanks on a bandsaw, then carve from there.

As for using them, jus twist your hair up onto your head and use them just like chopsticks or regular plastic combs.
