I’m taking inspiration from childhood with bobby pins

Bobby Pins

There are many “old-school” hair accessories coming back like scrunchies and barrettes. If you think about it, these are pieces you probably wore when you were a child. You might even thought you’ve seen the last of them, but brands are starting to bring them back in ways that are more modern, current, and age-appropriate. Another hair accessory to make a comeback are bobby pins. Sure, they technically never went away but they are more than just tools to clip your hair back, they’ve become embellishments for your locks. If you want to bring back some of your childhood style in a fresh way, try out these bobby pins.
