the pin

I have been wanting to get a shot of someone with these huge pins in their hair.

You may recognize them as the pins your hairstylist uses to pin up your hair for cutting, perming.

People in Japan (especially the younger generation), wear these pins (as fashion) to hold their bangs.

I've even seen guys wearing these pins.

There are just some fashion trends here that I shake my head at.

When I was about 10, I bought some of those, thinking they were barrettes. Little did I know...
