This 4 1/2 Inch Southeast Asian Striped Ebony 2-Prong Hair Fork is curved to fit the contour of your head and is a compliment to my other Striped Ebony "Rustic Heavy Duty Hair Fork" and differs in that although it is shorter and lighter it has a longer FPL of 3 3/4". This Curved Hair Fork is made for those who want a smaller hair fork that is strong yet holds well, is not heavy so it can be used with thinner hair. It is only 1 " wide; 4 1/2" long and less than 3/16" thick. The pictures do not do justice to this Hair Fork.
This Hair Fork is for those with Light, thin hair as the fork is light and strong and holds well.
The Functional Prong Length (FPL) is 3.75" for this 2-Prong Hair Fork and varies within 1/4" from piece to piece.
This Southeast Asian Ebony (Diospyros Sp) is very heavy and is thought to be a sub-species of Macassar Ebony as the wood is found from Indonesia to India and known by different names throughout the area. There are something like 450 Ebony species know in the world but only a few grow to any size to make commercial lumber out of. For more info see macassarebony.com .
This smaller and lighter Ebony 2 prong Hair Fork should now be added to my "Rustic Heavy Duty" line I have introduced before and will continue to expand in the near future . The line now includes five Different Striped Hair Forks as follows :
1) 4 7/8" Curved Three Prong Hair Fork 2" wide and 1 /4" thick with FPL of 3 1/2"
2) 4 3/4" Curved Two Prong Hair Fork 1 1/4" wide and 1/4" thick with FPL of 3 1/2"
3) 5 7/8" Straight Three Prong Hair Fork 2" wide and 1/4" thick with FPL of 4 1/2"
4) 5 3/4" Straight Two Prong hair Fork 1 1/4" wide and 1/4" thick with FPL of 4 1/2"
5) 4 1/2" Curved Two Prong hair Fork 1" wide and 3/16" thick with FPL of 3 3/4"
These Hair forks are being made out of Laos Rosewood and/or Striped Ebony so there are ten different listings here on Etsy .
The Hair Forks are finished with a lacquer coating and rubbed out to a semi-gloss finish and waxed with Johnson Paste wax.
The last picture shows several different colors and grain patterns and is just to show the variety that this Hair Fork may come in. The listing is for only one Hair Fork.

As a matter of caution some of the Forks will be sharper then some people like and I therefore recommend that you blunt the tip with an emery board to the degree of sharpness you want.
If you find any of my Hair Forks not to your liking I will take them back.
Feel free to contact me if you have any questions or concerns.

Shipping from United States
At the present time I only ship to the USA due to negative Customs experiences I have had in the past.
I ship either US Priority Mail or US First Class mail depending upon the items weight. I try to ship the same day but because of my location in Hawaii your package will usually ship the following day as long as it is not a Sunday or Holiday.
I have a very liberal Return Policy in that you can return anything you want for any reason by notifying me within five days that you want to make a return.
I will refund your money for the product upon receipt of the product back. Shipping fees to return product will be at customers expense. Items may be returned up to 30 days after receipt by customer and notification to me of intent to return product.
A 10% Restocking Fee may apply for certain items.
Frequently Asked Questions
Why don't you ship outside of the USA ?
I will consider and have shipped to other Countries but only after we agree on prices and shipping. This must be done through the Convo system here on Etsy and is not available for all items due to the weight and shipping restrictions on some of my items.
I will however ship to friends or relatives of customers who are located in the USA and then they can make shipping arrangements to the customers location overseas.

Gorgeous! I asked for a striped piece (like the one pictured), and was not disappointed. I also received a nice metal fork in the same size as a gift! Both are exactly as described; smooth sleek finish (the metal one seems a bit more slippery). Ends not too sharp, but pushes easily. I have straight, nearly waist-length hair, but very thin & fine. I've never used a hair fork before, so was skeptical that it would work for my hair. I ordered the smallest size and can't believe how well this fork works! The hold is great- I don't use any type of hair spray once it's in place (I do use some texture spray before putting up). I have even accidentally fallen asleep with my hair up in this fork and it has stayed in place! I make sure to use as directed- place fork once my hair is in a bun, not twist the hair with it or use as a lever.

Oh my goodness! What a beautiful piece of art and my hair loves this curved hair fork. I love how small and easy to use it is. I have some straight hair forks and wanted to try a curved one and it works so well, holds your hair like nobody's business and feels so comfortable. Simple, easy and effortless. Thank you so much!!!!

The seller's item descriptions really helped me understand, finally, why some things will hold my hair and some won't. I appreciated that detailed information. My hair is fine but full, and the size and shape and strength of this fork hold it securely almost any way I want to use it. It’s compact enough that it doesn’t take over my head, is light as a few feathers, has beautiful detail and color, and the prongs dig in without pulling my hair or poking my scalp. Perfect functionality, and beautifully made.
