    Default Amish pins

    Could someone please post a picture? I've looked on google and can't figure out what these look like? Do they have another name?

    Thanks in advance.

    Oh! That's what I'd call bun pins. They should be easy to find; they're pretty essential for ballet students. (And pro ballerinas, but hey.)

    The difference with these is that they are 100% hair safe. They won't bend out of shape, don't have rough tips (when the regular ones lose the little balls on the ends), don't get rusty (safe for wet hair) - basically they're indestructible.
    I've had mine for years now, I use them daily and they still look exactly the same as when I first got them.

    You can still lose them though

    Thank you for the link!
    I have been wanting to buy some, so I was wondering what length of hair pin do you think would be best for hair that is 25" long & kind of thin? would the 2" be too long?
    Or what is the length of your hair pin?

    Thank you!
