Amish-made hair pins
http://www.plainlydressed.com/veils-accessories.html

Scroll down the webpage...those hair pins are AWESOME for long hair etc. They work great and made in USA! Only $3 per a pkg of 12! I've been using them for years - I just bought 2 more pkgs (lost some from moving, needed to replace them...)



ps: I'm a Pagan/sorta Wiccan...I don't mind their religion...

Hmmm, interesting. I let my hair grow in the summer so I can wear it up. What length do you buy?

They come in one length, I'm gonna guesstimate 2" long. I just put my hair up with my two remaining amish pins...my hair is past "armpit" length. I love that they are "invisible" in your hair, very light, very comfortable etc. I have and have tried many hair toys including hair sticks (some from France, even) wooden hair forks, Good Days hair pins etc ad nauseam. These are my favourite and ironically, one of the cheapest!

No, they come in 4 lengths it says. Look at the pull down menu - 1 5/8, 2, 2 and 3. I'd probably go with 2 or 3; my hair is about midback and when I use plastic ones I only need a couple to keep it up.

I spent a lot of my formative years in Pennsylvania Dutch country.
I didn't know you were Pagan/sorta Wiccan...me too...I don't mind their food, the deserts at least. I was raised on it and started making Shoo-Fly Pie after we moved away. Can't stand saurkraut anywhere near me though, one thing me and my father agreed on but were out-voted.

Since I fought the bald and the bald won and my hair is now kept about 1/4" I don't forsee a use for hair pins.

Mike, my husband is a bit bald too - he shaves his head (easier for cycling anyway) it's ok...

I contacted Plainly Dressed customer service asking to change my order for 2.5" pins...

I'm confused by the Amish having a website.

lol yeah, maybe they're mennonites or different Amishes? Hrm.

btw, I also love France Luxe http://www.franceluxe.com/ their products are well-made (not cheap though.)
http://www.ficcare.com/Collections.aspx?catId=1 these are kind of the Cadillacs of the hair toy world, I was on a group order once to get one but the person running it took our $ and ran (I got refunded by Visa) I am still sad I never got my Ficcare. God, those things are $.
