How do you use bobby pins?
Bobby pins are great for thick to medium hair. They will fall right out of thin hair. You use bobby pins by just taking a piece of good sized hair and slipping in the bobby pin. The style today is to take a bit of hair from the front and to pull it back. Then you slip in the bobby pink in the middle of your hair line. :)

What is better a bobby pin or a clip?
It depends on the look you're going for. Bobby pins are quite invisible in your hair, but if you want to make a statement or have a cute clip that matches your outfit or mood, you should go for one. I have to admit that I have a clip addiction but since I have bobby pins I use them almost everyday. Have fun and greets from Holland! Sorry for my bad English...

Why hair pins are called bobby pins?
The style of hair pins (not to be confused with hairpin, another style of coiffure pin) known as bobby pins in the US are called so after the trademarked name they were originally marketed under, now out of trademark. As the company is called Bob Lépine, it's safe to say the name comes from the company name (probably the founder of the company). From Wikipedia - "A trademark on the term "bobby pin" was held for some decades by Bob Lépine Corporation of Buffalo, New York." Similarly, the British name for the same article is "kirby grip," and is derived from the trademark Kirbigrip, used by a Birmingham manufacturer of such pins, Kirby, Beard & Co. Ltd.
