    Types of Bobby Pins

    We women have always had an itch for adorning our hair! Starting from young kids to the older women we are today, hairpins are one such hair accessory that can't be done away with. And if you too have had your fair share of this little piece of metal, have a look at their types.

    1. Jumbo Hairpins

    As the name suggests, jumbo pins are the largest hairpins in the bobby pin family. Their main purpose is to hold thick and unruly hair together. Unlike other bobby pins, they don't have an un-wavy design to them. This allows the pins to provide a thicker grip. So ladies, if your hair is super thick and long, you might want to bring home jumbo hairpins.

    2. Regular Hairpins

    These bobby pins are commonly available everywhere. They're the regular sized ones and can be used to hold your bangs and flyaways. Because of their size, you can use these hairpins to decorate your mane in the most fashionable way possible. Make sure that you store them well though, these tend to get lost pretty easily.

    3. Mini Hairpins

    Did you know that mini hair pins come with rubber padding? They have it so that the pins do not fall or slip off from your hair. Women who have thin and flat hair should give these babies a try. Don't expect to make a bold fashion statement with these bobby pins, they're just meant to make your bangs and hairstyle look neat and tidy.

    4. U-Shaped Hairpin

    These are wider bobby pins which are used to secure updos and twisties. Some of them come with colourful beads, semi-precious stones and pearls on them. Sure, these hairpins look tiny and insignificant from afar, but if you place them well, they can make even the dullest hairstyle stand out and stay in place.
