hey everyone it's siobhan here so i just finished recording a hair idea video it was my double waterfall braids and i had some extra time so i thought i was going to record one more today and it is a share the love it's a shout out to another etsy shop and I have to apologize i know that i said i was going to be filming these pretty regularly and i have completely and totally fallen behind in my schedule anyway um the shock that I'm shouting out is called aack woodworking and the man that makes the products his name is Alan and he's fantastic so I learned about this etsy shop through another girl on untamed tresses com she had a gorgeous profile picture her hair is much longer than mine and it kind of looked almost like a figure eight and through it she had a hair stick but it wasn't really a hair stick it was a wooden sword just looks so cool and so badass I immediately wanted to have one and I was like where did you get that and she pointed me in the direction of this particular etsy shop the first thing I noticed about the actual swords once I got to the etsy shop was how incredibly beautiful they are they're so simple and it's my understanding that they're made from a single piece of wood that is then sanded down into the shape that Alan likes and in one of his emails to me he said that he was inspired by his sister she wanted some sort of hair stick that was going to be easier for her to manage with her own hair and I guess it just got him on the road to making these himself and what was funny is that in his description of one of the swords well actually I should show you the sword first this is the one that I bought and this is a copy of arrogance sword from Lord of the Rings I just thought it was beautiful it was so simple I had to have this one and in his description of this he actually says there's got to be another woman somewhere here in etsy world who likes Tolkien as much as i do and i thought that was hilarious because here in the long hair community online on YouTube and on different forum boards so many of us are fantasy fans and I just thought it was surprising that he hadn't met more of us so I wanted to kind of shout his store out just because I knew that so many of us including myself obviously would really like these i'm not sure if it would hold like a large amount of hair like if you had tons and tons of hair this might not do it but for me it works and it's like totally it's perfectly balanced it's perfectly balanced and I guess if you had really really long hair you could just kind of twist it up into you know like a regular bun or whatever and then just stick the sword through now the cool thing about alan is he um he's really great at getting back to you like pretty much immediately and he was very thorough and answering all of my questions I really appreciated the fact that so there you go that's what it looks like I really appreciated the fact that these are so reasonably priced this only cost me fifteen dollars which considering how beautiful it is and it's handmade like that's pretty much nothing um so yeah that's like the first thing that's really cool about these hair hair sticks they're also really unusual I haven't seen anybody kind of besides my girlfriend on untamed dresses I'm not trying to say your name because I want to protect your privacy I don't know if she'd like that if I shouted her out in a video without her permission but um yeah she's the only person that I've ever seen besides myself now wearing these and um yeah they're very unique thing that's really really cool about Alan's shop is that he will work with you so when I started talking to him I was like you know have you heard of a song of ice and fire Game of Thrones I am a huge fan and he hadn't I mean he'd heard of it but he hadn't read the books like I had and I was like one of my favorite characters Arya Stark and her sword is needle and you can see a replication of it he at Valyrian steel calm and let me show you I've got I've got needle here and um see the the shape kind of and then the detailing on the handle and of course the stark direwolf right here but let me show you I told him I told him about it and like literally three days later it was so freaking awesome I don't know if you're gonna be able to really see it cuz of the glare from the computer that's needle same shape and the same detailing on the handle the only thing that's missing is the direwolf and he said it was because of like cop copyright issues and stuff which is fine but that's really close and at the moment he only has one but he says that you know he'll make more if people are interested so he's great you can work with him you can ask him to sort of custom order things and he said another email that he doesn't generally charge extra for custom orders except if he thinks he won't be able to sell it again um which makes total sense just wanted to give him a shout out and like let everybody know who maybe hasn't seen or heard of these before that they are totally worth fifteen dollars they're absolutely gorgeous and mine just got tangled in my hair um yeah I would recommend these to any of my friends I would probably even buy them as gifts and it's just so cool he made a needle that's kind of the end of my video um I hope you guys enjoyed it I hope it helped um not just You Alan but like anybody else who maybe was looking for something like this and yeah i'm looking forward to buying more swords from you in the future okay bye you
