This gently curved hand-carved horn hair pin makes us feel simultaneously wild and glamorous, like Diana running through the woods with her bow, whipping our hair out of our eyes and into an effortless gladiatrix bun so we can take better aim. Or, you know, just to wash our faces at the end of the day. Inspired by ancient designs, this U-shaped pin is exquisitely simple in its form and implementation. Gather your hair in the back into a twist or bun and insert the comb from above. Depending on the texture of your hair, this can also hold a French twist or chignon. 4 1/2" long.
Each of these exquisite horn pieces is hand selected, sanded, molded, smoothed, cut, and shaped in a tiny workshop in BÌüvlingbjerg, Denmark. The raw African horn is then polished to highlight the material's coloration and individual beauty. Each piece is unique. And not to toot our own, um, horn, but these are also the perfect all-natural sustainable alternative to petroleum-based plastics.
Hand wash and dry using warm (not hot) water and these horn lovelies will last for a good long while. After all, humans have been making objects of use and beauty from horn for literally thousands of years (and they didn't put them in the dishwasher).
