Why you should invest in good Bobby pins

The Best Bobby Pin You'll Ever Buy


Coming home from New York Fashion Week a few years ago I walked away with memories that would last a lifetime - plus a beauty tip that would quickly become an absolute staple for me personally and all of my clients. Every hair stylist and makeup artist was using the same set of bobby pins on the models, and I figured, there must be something special about them if literally everyone is using them. It wasn’t until I tried them for myself that I understood why they were in the beauty kits of all of the professionals. 


The T&T Bobby Pins are made in Japan and are incomparable to any that I’ve used before. You might be thinkin, “what’s the big deal, they’re just little pins, how big of a difference could they really make”? These small and mighty dark blue pins are absolute magic. But you don’t have to take my word for it, grab a set of 30 for yourself and you’ll see exactly what I’m talking about!


Comparing these to a typical set you might pick up from Shoppers Drug Mart or the Dollar Store you’ll quickly feel how different the grip is on this set. They’ll hold your hair in literally any style, but thanks to the cushioned tips (that don’t pop off), they don’t damage your hair and hurt when it’s time to take them off and let your hair down at the end of the day. I can say from personal experience that these hold hair in place all day. Remember back when we got to party and dance the night away? These pins were my saving grace back then, and continue to be now. 


Thanks to the amazing quality and strength of these pins, you need less of them at a time to keep your style looking perfect. This also means that they last much longer, meaning less frequent repeat purchases which is way better for the environment. 


I recommend keeping these precious pins stored in the MRB tin and keep them safe so you can have them for as long as possible! When you’re ready to get your hands on some more, you can pick up a re-fill of the pins without the tin for less waste. 


Right now, I carry these in 2-lengths; the Mini is 4 cm and the Regular is 5 cms. If straight bobby pins aren’t really your thing (or you’re a sucker for a sweet ballerina bun), you can also snag a pair of U-Pins!
