A life saver? Hum….Maybe not. But it can definitely make a bride’s wedding day, make a bad hair day better and even inspire you to be more creative with hair styles! It’s always lurking around in the bottom of your purse and hanging out in your bathroom drawers. It’s the hairpin!
The modern day hair pin is made when different lengths of wire are bent in half to form a u-shape, then a few kinks are placed along the two opposite sides to make the finished pin. The pin may vary from two to six inches in length, which helps with placement and to hold several different styles of hairstyles in place. The kinks helps to keep the pins secure during normal movements.
Hairpins are typically plain and unobtrusively colored but now some are decorated with beads or jewels on the bend to add beauty and flair to a hair style. Bobby pins are also elaborately decorated with jewels, beads and flowers, that makes any style look great!
Thank you to the person who invented this little life saver!
