What to Give the Hair-Obsessed Girl

What: Bumble and Bumble Pin Tin, a tidy tin of 50, winter-white hair pins, in a variety of handy sizes, accompanied by a style guide for adorable hair-dos.
Why it rocks: The range of pin styles included in this stocking stuffer are enough to make any girl go gaga. The 3-inch hair pins are god-sends for long-haired lasses in need of hefty support for equally hefty chignons, while the shorter bobbies are fun and flirty left exposed as snowy-white finishing touches. The guide ups the ante, making the set more of a styling-lesson-in-a-box, rather than just a bunch of pins. Six Bb. stylist-designed tutorials are included and every single one is fetching, adaptable for a variety of lengths and textures and perfect for holiday parties (and beyond). Beauty nerds like me are likely to pour over the bobby pin trivia, history and tips for handling, too.
Perfect for: The girl who thinks that a world without bobby pins is as good as a Christmas without cookies
Price: Just right. $15 for the whole shebang.
