If you are fond of weapons and martial sports and/or fighting activities, it's a cool idea to wear mini-weapons in your hair! There are some hairtoys in the shape of swords, daggers, spears, arrows, axes and other weaponry, but letter openers and decorative mini-swords (all relatively safe and, of course, blunt!) can work as well. They work in the same way as hairsticks.
I love martial sports such as sword-fighting and archery, so hairtoy weaponry is something I certainly wish to invest upon :). The hairtoy-workable swords I have at the moment include an Arthurian-style sword, a Spanish rapier, a Celtic sword letter-opener (which I'm afraid it's too short to hold my hair efficiently and will remain solely as a letter-opener), and mini-replicas of Gandalf and the Witch-king's swords (the Witch-king sword is too long and potentically dangerous, but Glamdring does work relatively well). After being enabled via the LHC (here: http://forums.longhaircommunity.com/showthread.php?t=100912), Tauriel's daggers, Arwen's sword Hadhafang and Thorin's sword Orcrist are now in my wish list for hair-swords.
This post is for my newest hair-sword, a mini Spanish rapier that works really well, especially in a cinnamon bun. I've been doing ancient 17th Century Spanish sword-fighting for a bit more than a year now, too, so it matches with my real life rapier :D
|It practically doesn't need any more support to keep the bun secure for the whole day (apart from the elastic - I usually do cinnamon buns with elastics for the additional security).|
|Bonus for Vampire Red shine :) and fandom-geeekiness - yes, that's Sherlock's coat from the BBC series!|
|And bonus 2: My real life Spanish rapier :)|
