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.
