Our Frenchies are velvet coated which creates a better friction surface so your hair stays the same way you style it. Frenchies Hairpins are highly comfortable and won’t poke, scratch, or irritate your scalp. They come in a variety of colors to perfectly blend into vibrant hairstyles and unique designs.
...and these pins have changed my LIFE!! YES LIFE CHANGING!! I needed to do a scene where the actress pulls 1 pin out of her hair and her hair comes tumbling down, on cue. (over and over, like 6 takes) I used one large black Frenchie pin and it worked perfectly!! They are flocked so they hold the hair perfectly and are virtually undetectable to the eye (or digital camera)...AMAZING HAIR PINS! 5 STAR!
These hairpins are fantastic. I have hair that reaches the middle of my back and needed so many traditional bobby pins to do any type of updo. Of course, they NEVER stayed secure because my hair is fine and straight. These are really great because they actually work. My favorite types of buys are practical but innovative. Fills the bill. Will hold long and short hair neatly and securely without all the futzing around. Highly recommend.
Great pins for an updo. I like the fact that the pins have a coat on them that is the color of my hair and not shiny like most pins. I have shoulder length hair and I can only do a french twist because of the length of my hair. I watched a youtube video on the updo and when I tried it at home the pins fell out. Now with the coated pins they stay put and you cannot see them. They also hold the hair much better than any pins I have used in the past and they come in a variety of sizes. I am happy I bought them.
I'll start off by saying I've never really done updos or used a hair pin before in my life, and I didn't watch any videos, so I don't think I'm using them right. Even with that in mind: I did a simple braid bun this morning (first attempt) and these pins kept it in place through a 9 hour workday, a run, and walking the dogs after work without any pieces falling out. Plus, they were so comfortable, I barely felt them. Definitely will buy again when I inevitably lose a few and would definitely recommend them!
The French hairpin is the classic U-shaped hairpin that allows the flexibility of styling your hair in various styles. They have become a trendy yet affordable way of grasping your hair and ensuring they stay in place for longer durations.
I have an answerFrenchies are commonly used in a wave-like motion. Secure your hair in the style you want and slightly push the French pin inside, when the pin touches your scalp, change its direction so that it becomes parallel to the skin, and voila it’s done. However, a video tutorial will clearly explain the process to help you understand the process better.
If you are creating a French twist hairstyle, then you can safely secure it with a French hairpin. Match the color of your hairpin with your hair to create a seamless look. Add any hairstyling accessory to accentuate the hairstyle even further.
Just take a section of your hair where you will be putting the French hairpin and spray it with lots of texturizing sprays to create volume and a gritty texture. Also, tease that section of your hair to further create a surface and then twist and secure it with the pin.
