The History of the Bobby Pin!

The bobby pin, also known as a hair grip, kirby or clip.

The pin came into wider use during the 1920’s when the ‘bobbed hair’ or ‘bob cut’ was fashionable. The pin, which was easily hidden into the hair was perfect for holding this new style in place. 

The shape of the pin allows for the ends to be flexible enough to slide through hair, and then close to hold the hair in place. The style has remained unchanged for decades and are usually plain and in colours to blend into the hair. However, there are also jewelled pins which can go from simple designs to elaborate.
