These are no ordinary bobby pins! The coated metal is thick and the bobbies are longer than normal. They do a fantastic job holding the bun in place and are offered in a great assortment of colors so you can get that perfect match for your dancer's hair. I will not be purchasing the cheap bobbies any more -- worth the extra $$$$
For someone with thicker hair or a bun on the larger size these pins are a perfect size. The color is nice and they are pretty durable. I have a hard time finding pins that are long enough and that retain their shape no matter what, but these are exactly what I wanted. I only gave four stars because, There just aren`t enough in one pack! But I think the price is reasonable for the quality and I will continue to buy these.
I don't think these are poor quality hairpins by any means, but they aren't extraordinary. The colors are so-so in terms of matching hair. They are rather pricy once you figure in shipping, especially since you can get more than twice as many for less money at the drugstore. Just go to Walgreens or another drugstore or grocery store for your bobby pins.
These are the nicest bobby pins I've ever used. The dark brown matches my hair perfectly and they are strong and work well bent a little. They are a bit longer than usual pins and so they hold more hair. I am definitely getting a few packs next time I order!
