Our simple but incredibly functional collection of hairpins are made with a stout 12 gauge solid brass wire. We've then hammered them to make them slightly faceted and somewhat flexible but also able to bounce back, making them both functional and decorative to securely hold your hair in a bun or twist. AND you don't need to consume more plastic (we find SO many discarded ponytail holders on our beaches :( )...
And no worries - as owners of long hair and frequent hairstick wearers ourselves, we've ensured that the tips have been filed to a smooth point so that your hair will not be damaged.
Each standard fork measures appx. 5 inches with a width of appx 1" at the widest point.
All brass is guaranteed nickel-free.
