Fashion Fact #32- Bobby Pins

Bobby Pins: During the 1920s the “bob cut” became a popular hairstyle and women needed something to help keep their “bob” in place, so the bobby pin was created. The bobby pin is used like a barrette and can be used to keep hair in place, hold headbands or bandannas in place, or hold head coverings such as a yarmulke. Bobby pins come in different colors and can be decorated with ribbons, beads, and glitter.
