    So I have this thing which I think could be described as a hair fork - basically a wooden triangle with two prongs sticking out of it. What sort of hairstyles can I do with it? Suggestions please.

    You can put your hair up in a bun with it if your hair is about bra-strap length. (If it's shorter than that, you can put the top half of your hair in a bun with it and leave the bottom half loose).
    Assuming you're right handed:
    Twist your hair into a bun.
    Put the fork to the right hand side of the bun, pointing directly at your head. (Bun is from left to right, you need to be off-centre from the middle, basically!)
    Stab your head (gently!) through the bun with the fork until the prongs touch your scalp.
    Tilt the fork rightwards so that the prongs sort of slide along your scalp a bit and so that the fork is lying almost flat against the bun.
    Then "sew" the prongs of the fork leftwards through the bun so that the end of the fork is sticking out the other side.

    This is actually more how you put up your hair using a pencil instead of a fork - I have used a tuning fork once when I didn't have anything else, and it worked! So I'm assuming your hair fork is sort of a U shape with a stick coming out of the bottom of the U. You need to have about bra-strap length hair to do it.

    If you're not sure how to twist your hair into a bun, then you put it into a ponytail and twist the end of it. It will start coiling into a bun.
