Rated 1 out of 5Â by LeslieP Did you get a new manufacturer? These pins break easily.
I've worn my hair up in a loose bun almost every day for 40 years. I've always used this type of hairpin. They would last forever, and the only reason I would need to replace them was because they would get lost. I never broke one. The hair pins began to get harder to find over the years and I was pleased to discover that VCS carried them. I've ordered them over past years a couple of times from VCS and they were fine. A couple of months ago I ordererd some from VCS. Since then I've broken almost every single one of them, by merely sliding them in or out of my bun. They are extremely brittle and not good quality. I'm dissapointed. I'm going to see if I can find them elsewhere from now on.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Zusha You only need one!
I have fine flyaway hair. It is usually difficult to keep up away from my face. a friend recommended these hairpins and they are great. Only need one to twist my hair back and keep it in place all day

Rated 5 out of 5Â by MeToo It works
Measurement: length 2.5", width 5/8 " semi flexible, thick, quality, fake tortoiseshell plastic. My use; don't spread pins legs to overload- that is why the round keyhole head is made, just slide in where needed to keep thick "horsetail" type, little past shoulder length hair in bun/top knot. I only use three per bottom half of bun/total- it holds fine all day in clean or not so hair- no hair spray needed. I only use L. Erickson hair woven type elastics, they are the best.

Had chemotherapy a few years ago and my hair never restored its thickness. These hairpins actually work on thin hair !

Rated 5 out of 5Â by SharonDfromJerseyCity Fantastic for very fine or thin hair!
I have a full head of baby fine hair, and these hairpins work wonderfully. I use three to keep my hair in a bun when I get home from work, and it works great. If you don't "overfill" them, they won't stretch out of shape. I've been using this product for many many years.
Yes, they eventually need replacing but seriously, if little pieces of plastic last you five years of everyday use, who's complaining?
If you have thick hair down to your waist, these probably aren't the best choice for you (metal would be best), but for those of us who don't have volumes and volumes of hair that takes 30 minutes to blow-dry, these are great. The tips don't poke or snag which is also great.
Very well made for the price!

Rated 2 out of 5Â by Long-haired lady Not like the ones I've bought in the past
I've used these hairpins for a few years, but can no longer find them in my local stores, so I was very excited to see them here. Unfortunately, they have all broken. I bought 20 of them, thinking that I would have several years use, but instead, I've only gotten a few months out of them. Very disappointing, as they are the only hairpins that work for me.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by messy hair Definitely work
These clips have made it so easy for me to throw my hair in quick bun that stays!! Only problem I ordered the clear ones which are hard to see...I lost @ least 3 the first day I wore them, plus its hard to see them in your hair. So I definitely would buy them again but I would suggest the brown ones instead!
