Looking good seems to be one of the bare necessities of a happy life today. Irrespective of the fact whether you are a housewife, a professional, a party freak or a teenager you just cannot ignore your looks. If you are the one who loves to dress in style you can just not ignore hair makeup. Hair is something which adds to the elegance and looks of any lady. Dressing hair in style has been a popular trend ever since the emergence of civilization.

Headgears like crowns, fillets, hair covers, hair pins, etc have only become more popular with time. Hair pins especially have been widely used to hold back long hair and style them in various hair dos. Many of the complex hairdos could just be impossible had it not been for the efficient hair pins.

Haarspeldjes is actually the Dutch term for the popular hair pin. Let’s take a look into the world of hairpins. The evolution of Haarspeldjes can be traced back to the ancient Assyria and Egyptand were primarily composed of carved wood, bronze, ivory and metal. History proves that hairpins back then were an element of luxury. It was then passed over to the Romans, Etruscans and Greeks. The invention of the spiral hairpin in the 1901 was another landmark in the history of hairpins.

Hairpins are usually decorated using ornaments and jewels. Some of them are specially designed for specific hairstyles and also serve the decorative purpose.

Modern hairpins are often made by using varied lengths of wire bent in a u – shape. A few kinks on the ends are also common. The final product can range between two to six inches in length. There are specific lengths for different sorts of hair dos and the kinks on the end are meant to hold back the pin in place while minor movements are allowed. Haarspeldjes thus has only increased its charm over time.
