These pins are simple and made to secure any updo with a classic feel. They are just as cute as they are functional and made for everyday use. This is a beautiful dark brown tortoise color fork measuring 4.5 inches long. You can do a bun or a half up with it and put the straight part behind your hair while having the curved part on top of your hair securing your hair down. It also has some little teeth on it to make it more secure!! I'm seriously in love with this pin!
