Hairpins – subtle beauty aids for stylish hairstyles

Hairpins are a firm fixture on our bathroom shelves. These discreet little helpers can tame loose strands, keep your bun in shape or add some shiny highlights to your locks. They don't always have to be used for an elaborate updo. Hairpins can also help perfect your appearance in everyday life or at work.

The classic hairpin styles: The bobby pin

At first glance, this hairpin is just a specially bent piece of wire. But on closer inspection, you can see there are subtle differences. First of all, the size is crucial. Small bobby pins are ideal for thin hair as they don’t weigh much. The longer version of the bobby pin, on the other hand, keeps even thick, heavy hair in check. They also ensure that styled waves and intricately blow-dried quiffs hold their shape all day.

What other hairpins are there?

In addition to the classic bobby pin, there are other different types of hairpin. Each of them has their own function. Here’s a brief overview to ensure you buy the right type every time:

  • Ridged hairpins: This type of bobby pin is the practical all-rounder for every hairstyle. They provide hold whilst remaining understated.
  • U-shaped pins: This version of the classic hairpin can be bent open to hold elaborate updos together or to keep your bun in place.
  • Wide hairpins: Used to quickly secure a strand and wherever they can be seen.
  • Spiral pins: Even extremely thick hair benefits from the strong hold these special hairpins can provide.
  • Hairpins and hair grips with embellishments: Sparkling stones, filigree ornaments or bright colours enhance your hairstyle and attract admiring glances.

Never used hairpins before? At first these wiry little objects can be a little difficult to handle. But once you’ve got the knack of them, there's nothing standing in the way of you creating artistic hairstyles like a pro.

Using hairpins and hair grips properly – tips & tricks

Ridged hairpins should always be inserted with the smooth side facing up. This gives you more grip and keeps your hairstyle stable. Speaking of hold: A little hairspray or dry shampoo sprayed directly onto the hair grip creates a non-slip effect. Are you looking for hairpins in a particular colour? Save yourself the search by using colourful nail varnish. Wide hairpins in particular create colourful eye-catchers for any hairstyle by doing this.

When buying your preferred hairpin, always make sure that the tips are rounded. Otherwise you can do damage to your hair and easily cause painful scratches when pinning it up. Are you always losing your hairpins? A small plastic case will ensure you always have some at hand.
