- Sep 1, 2006Thank you, Sheryl!
Interestingly enough, I've been planning on getting some Amish
hairpins for a while now- I have far too much hair for regular long
pins now, they get bent out of shape, so I need some for everyday
life, too. I usually do a ponytail, divided into two braids, twisted
around and pinned and hairsticked, so when wet it should hold fairly
Thank you again, and if I don't find anything infinitely better, I
will probably go with the Amish pins. When I have my persona all
together I'll try to post a picture to show you. *G*
