    Default Amish Pins

    Does anyone know if brown colored (as opposed to the standard silver metal type) amish pins are sold anywhere?

    I think Amish pins only come in metal. There is such a thing as regular U-pins (crinkled or plain) and the stronger, dancers' Bunhead pins. Regular U-pins and Bunheads come in blond, brown, black.
    WCC method (washing) --- Rinse-out oil (MO) --- LOC/LCO method (styling)

    Where can you get the regular U-pins in brown at?

    They usually have the regular brown u-pins at beauty supply places, Sally's or the like.

    The amish ones really are much better, but I feel you on not liking the silver. I hate how they stand out in my hair. I haven't tried Bunheads yet, but I'd like to: I hear they are a step up from the regular ones, and they come in colors.

    I am considering coloring the top of mine with some black nail polish. I have tried many a pin and only two stay in my hair- The crinkly Amish pins and Spin Pins.
    My routine has changed since starting to use Rogaine regularly to try to regain some thickness. I still cleanse every other day, but I use T/Sal shampoo, followed by my beloved Suave Wild Cherry conditioner. A vinegar rinse and catnip leave in follow.

    This. My hair laughs in the face of normal U-shaped pins. The straight Amish pins are much better strength-wise, but they slipped out of my updos sadly (I've never tried the crinkled ones though).

    I admit, I have coloured in the tops of a few of mine in Sharpie, and then washed it off later.

    I like ravenreed's idea of painting it. I'd probably use a sharpie too, like pepperminttea

    I like this idea, please let me know if it still glides into your hair the same way if you end up using the nail polish...

    Yes I definitely love the amish pins, but the silver does stick out like a sore thumb, especially when I use the longer ones, and I would love for them to blend in more. I have tried the U-pins before but they don't hold the same way...
