Hairpins used to be a staple of Roman fashion. No woman that cared about her looks would go anywhere without having one of those in her hair. They not only were used as a practical device for keeping ones hair up but also as a fashion statement. The heads of the hairpins oftentimes were marvelously and neatly carved and decorated and could tell whole stories about the wearer. The hairpin at hand in comparison is rather simplistic. But simplicity too is a fashion statement.
Hairpins are especially practical for reenactors or people that want to authentically dress up as ancient Romans. They can also serve as a handy show-and-tell item for history teachers.
All in all you cannot go wrong by purchasing one of those neat little items!
