Last week, I went to Sallys because I needed to buy a crimper that I so always wanted to get. Along with that, I know I needed some bobby pins that I desperatly needed.
I used to get them at Walmart, and I must say, I HATE them. My hair is thin and the bobby pins from Walmart have those big holes at the end, so they dont hold a thing on my head. They slide right out.
One day, I decided to check out Sallys since it just got built next to where I live. And lo and behold, I saw these bobby pins:
They are just PERFECT for me. I like how they have different sizes and colors. (I got black since my hair is dark). The holes at the end are not too big. I mostly use the smaller size which is 1.5" long. I like the long kind when I do fancy fair and need more longer pins to hold my long hair.
The pins come in a small metal tin box. The lid slides on and off and holds really good. I keep them in my small make-up bag which I carry in my big purse.
The small pins come in a pack of 45, and cost $2.69 with beauty/reward card (reg. $2.99)
I forgot how many pins are in larger size but there are more than 45, and they also cost the same as the small pins. I believe there are different colors to choose from, but the quantity vary with the other colors.
What I did, was buy the crimper (which was on sale), applied for the reward card, and had $5 store credit. The credit can be used the next day, so I went back the next day and got the two boxes of pins for like $.40-something cents.! Not bad!
Oh, I forgot to mention, that the card cost $6 and lasts one year. At first, it looks like I didnt really get the pins for free, but I know I will be going back to that store and the $6 is worth it for one year.
