For years, I thought that bobby pins must be the magical tool of professional hair stylists only, because every time I used them, they fell right out. I later figured out that the problem was not me, but the cheapo bobby pins I was using. Then I learned about MetaGrip Premium Bob Pins.
These bobby pins hold well and don’t get stretched out and ruined after a few uses. If you’re in the market for bobby pins, I would definitely pick these up! Both are available from Sally Beauty Supply and are rather inexpensive. The larger tub runs around $6 and I have them in the bronze shade. You get 300 pins for that price! The smaller tin (actually slides open like a mint tin!) I have in mini black pins and runs about $2.50 for the tin and 36 pins. I keep the convenient and tiny tin in my purse for bad hair days. Both are available at Sally Beauty Supply Stores or SallyBeauty.com.
