I suspect that this pin is probably a refinement of hair pins our grandmothers or great grandmothers would have recognized. It is the easiest way I have found to create a bun without using a gazillion bobby pins.

This is a tear drop shaped pin with a small curve which enables it to rest comfortably against the natural curve of your head. All you do is twist your hair into a bun/chignon and the updo pin holds your hair in place. The ends are rounded so you won't scratch your scalp or tear your hair.

It does take a little practice and experimentation to find the style that's right for you and your hair length etc. I use it daily to tidy my hair for the school run LOL, and with more care for a formal night out style.

A friend has just bought one for her daughter - prom night approaches.....

I picked up one of these from the supermarket yesterday and spent the evening wrestling with it. I have thick, slightly curly hair just below shoulder length and consider myself fairly competent at putting it up. This pin does nothing - it won't stay in my hair and it certainly won't hold it so I don't know exactly what type of hair you need. I'm taking it back today for a refund. I was hoping for a "quick fix" hairdo for when I'm in a hurry.

4.0 out of 5 stars Actually works! 7 Feb. 2013
By M - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
So my only complaint here is that instead of sending me the light colored one they sent the dark one. Shipping is so expensive though so I'm not going to bother sending it back.

It does work. My hair is about.....20 inches long. Not only is it thick but it is also very slick!! I was really afraid that even if I did get this to to work it would come down during the day from all the weight of my hair. I was supper happy when it didn't. This product does take a while to get used! It took me about 15 minuets to figure out how to make it work.

For myself, my hair needs to be in a semi-tight bun, From here I inserted the pin, except that instead of starting at the bottom I placed it about half way up the bun for my hair. It looked fabulous and held all day!! Really happy!!

**One thing to note. This will press against the under-curve of your scull (run you hand down your head. Feel where it kind of dips off? That's the area where the pin sets.) If you are prone to headaches make sure it feels comfortable of you may experience some side effects.

5.0 out of 5 stars Works great for very long, thick hair! 1 Dec. 2014
By Shelli Abbott - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I have many of these. I use them every day. My hair is very thick, course and long (goes past my bottom). I can put my hair up with one of these and it will hold all day even as I work hard on my farm. I just twist my hair and then let the tightly twisted hair kink back and form a tight coiled up bun on the back of my head. I catch a small amount of the bun with the pin upside down, then flip the pin over and push it back through the bun trying to lift the ends of the pin slightly so the ends won't ride against my scalp. Once you figure it out it is so easy!!!!

3.0 out of 5 stars Too tight & painful for me... 3 Mar. 2016
By T. Allen - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I ordered this in February of 2016 and received three - one blonde & two brunettes (I am a brunette, so good thing). The clip itself is made from metal, which is nice and seems like it would hold up for some time.

I haven't given up on this yet - but after watching a few videos on youtube and experimenting around, I find that it is very tight & digs into my scalp no matter what angle I try to put in at (bottom, top, sides). I have been unsuccessful in finding a way to wear this that it is not painful and gives me a headache. My hair is medium length, medium thickness, curly, coarse, in longer layers. I have no trouble pinning it up with other items - even a few that I only use "one" item (though with my hair in layers it is wise to use additional pins/clips in some cases).

I liked the concept of one clip that would assist in a french twist like look - and will keep trying to find a method for using this pin that is pain free. Obviously, it works for some people just fine - so either they aren't as tender headed, don't get headaches or perhaps have more hair to work with so that any 'pull' is happening on their hair and not their scalp.

5.0 out of 5 stars The only hair accessory that works for my thick hair! 17 Jun. 2015
By MedicalGirl - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I LOVE this hair accessory! I admit it looks a little strange when you first see it but once you try it you will love it. My hair is VERY thick and long but this clip holds it super tight. You can use it for many different styles (there are instructions and examples on the box it comes in) but my favorite is a simple twist. It only takes a few seconds to put in. Brush (or finger comb) your hair back into a ponytail and roll your hair sideways into a twist keeping the loose hair tucked underneath. Then insert the clip. That's it! Elegent yet simple. I always keep an extra one in my purse so I can throw my hair up in seconds. Highly recommended.
5.0 out of 5 stars Interesting Little Number... 28 Mar. 2016
By Chris - Published on Amazon.com

This pin creates a hotbed of debate - having used it, I understand why. My hair is straight, and thin-stranded, but there's a lot of it. I can't see how anyone with super long and/or thick hair could successfully use the device. I am able to use it, but even my hair is close to being too thick for it. As for actually styling with it - there's a learning curve, so be ready to hang out in front of a mirror for 10-15 mins to practice getting it right. Once you do, it's great! I loved the different styles I could make with it, and how easy it is to make a cute undo that's different than a ho-hum bun. One complaint is it will dig in your skull a bit. To avoid that, just move it around and play with it until you get the style and feel you want. My advice is to spend some time with it, see what works for you, and enjoy the pay off. Easy mornings ahead!
