The colors on these cards are really bright considering their age , these along with many hair accessories were donated to me by the children of a local hairdresser that passed away earlier this year. The woman was 92 years old and had owned a beauty salon for many years before retiring in 1990.

    Why were they called bob pins, anyway? And how did that get changed into Bobby pins?

    according to the online etymology dictionary bob is "short hair" and "bobby" is a diminuitive form. Add "pin" for an associated word.
