Best bobby pins in the universe. Don't even bother getting any other brand (correct me if I'm mistaken.) These don't rust, they don't lose their tips, they are coated and they hardly bend out of shape. Maybe if you put them on something extremely thick like a bump-it or something. They come in multiple colors (black, bronze, silver, gold and white) and in a small tin (super cute and easy to carry around) or a large tub (great value!) They even have them in mini. (I prefer long though to hold more hair). But these HOLD and I love love them!
