This super sized pin holds hair in a perfect french twist every time, as well as other creative styles that previously requires traditional hair pins. The Pintwist is contoured to lay with the natural shape of heads so it takes the place of many small ones that tend to slip out. It hides in your hair, making it a clear choice over sloppy methods of clipping and banding. Its gentle because it was designed to fit and hold with its waved pattern on one side and ball-tipped for easy glide-and-wiggle into place. It holds upside-down, sideways, and top-to-bottom.
