Bobby pin or hair grip

A bobby pin is a type of hairpin.

In England, it is known as a hair grip, grip or kirby grip. In Swansea known as granny clips.

A bobby pin is a double-pronged hair pin that slides into hair with the prongs open and then the flexible prongs close over the hair to hold it in place.

Bobby pins became popular in the 1920s to hold the new bobbed hairstyles.
