      I have a heavy-duty pair of corkscrew hairpins that I think are similar to
      what you're describing. I bought mine years ago at a drug or grocery store
      but I don't remember the brand. They were sold in pairs and even at it's
      heaviest one pair is enough to hold a bun where I place it on my head.
      (I'm another one with problems with buns and ponytails slipping down the
      back of my head. ;) The wire is much heavier than standard hairpins and
      you twist or 'screw' the hairpin into your hair and reverse the twist to
      take them out. If I ever see them for sale again, I'll definately buy a
      few more pairs.
