I have had long hair since I was a little girl; and on those days when it looks pretty flowing down my back, I am joyous. But those days are few and far between, and the rest of the time, I wear my hair in a bun or updo on top of my head. Whatever way I wear my hair, I love to keep pretty little hair clips or pins in there somewhere; there’s a lot of it and I need to control it a bit even when it’s down. Recently, I lost my last few fave accessories (they always disappear eventually, a fact you just have to accept) and so I thought Etsy might be a good place to find some uncheesy new ones. And I found several matching themed bobby pins, which I thought were really sweet.
(Above) iluxo has a number of handmade-from-veggie-tanned-leather hair pieces, like the matching octopus and bubbles (and there are a bird and feather, and a skull and flower, both of which I also love).
This sweet set is from prettyplsmpls, and is made from vintage materials.
Made from old books pages, these pins from Bits and barley are perfect for a writer or book lover.
Made from vintage military buttons, seller aroomofyourown offers these hairpins. The metallic sheen gives a sense of history, and would complement almost any ensemble.
Flowers and an owl by ThreeBirdNest, all in almost-psychedelic colors, would look great in darker hair.
