Real Amish Hair Pins Review & GIVEAWAY

Amish 1

If you have ever bought any Amish items there is never a question of quality or craftsmanship with their products. The same integrity you find in their largest of items, carries down to one of their smallest items, like their hairpins. Growing up I didn't live in the Amish community but I have family who live in different parts of Pennsylvania and on different occasions, we would pass an Amish family in the community, I always remember wondering how they kept their hair and bonnets in place so well! After just a few moments experimenting with their hair pins, I definitely understand why! My oldest daughter is 11 and she is just getting to the age where she loves doing her hair, not only her hair - but she love experimenting with mine as well. She had a blast using these hair pins and designing new updo's for Mom.

Disclosure: I received four different sizes of stainless steel hairpins, at no cost to me, from Amish Valley Products: 3", 2 1/2", 2", and 1 5/8'.

  Ever Wonder how the Amish/Mennonite Ladies keep their Long Hair tucked up in a bun all day long?  These are the hairpins they use!       Amish Made Heavy Duty Stainless Steel Hairpins Hair Pin Keeps hair in place!  12pcs. Made by the Amish in Lancaster Pennsylvania, these Stainless Steel Hairpins will keep any active women's hair neatly tucked in place all day!    These hairpins will not bend and twist like the ones found in your local stores! For Waist length or longer hair we recommend the 3" Pins. These hairpins will go in your hair smoothly and pull out smoothly, NO cutting hair and splitting ends just to remove your hairpin at the end of the day!  Never go back to using the cheap drugstore sets!   Well worth the extra money for hairpins that last years! - Taken from the Amish Valley Products website 

 Here are some of the benefits to using these Amish Valley Hair Pins:
  • They are 100% stainless steel
  • Extremely durable
  • Great at holding hair in place but still making it look natural - unlike the stiff hold you find in traditional Bobby pins
  • Perfect for updo's
  • Outstanding for curly/wavy hair
  • Doesn't cause damage to hair
  • Pain-free, even after extended wear time
What girl doesn't love having her hair put in a fancy updo? I was recently in a wedding and I was so excited about having my hair done again, but as usual, though my hair looked amazing, by the end of the night my head was killing me from all those tight Bobby pins. As Mariyah set to work on creating my updo, I kept asking her if she was putting the pins in correctly - mainly because I couldn't even feel them! As she finished style after style, I noted not only how well the hair stayed in place, but also how natuarl it looked. With naturally curly hair, its especially easy for hairstyles to look overworked and stiff - but these pins really allowed the natural curl in my hair to shine through.
