Simple Brass Tuck Hair Pin
Made with recycled brass milled in the USA
Handmade for you in Portland, Oregon
A smooth length of metal is gently curved and hammered with a slight texture on the back side to create the ultimate minimal hair pin.
Each one is made to order by hand in our small, Portland, Oregon studio. We use solid jeweler's brass to create a product that will be durable and long lasting, as well as beautiful and elegant in its simplicity.
- Measures just over 3" long and 1" at its widest
- Made with solid yellow brass or solid white brass
- Natural brass will darken with time
- It's easy to keep your hair pin shiny with a polishing cloth.
Our brass is the highest graded alloy and it comes from mills in the American Southwest. Brass is a very similar color to 14k gold but is a harder material and more resistant to scratches. We wax all of our brass to slow the rate of tarnish, but natural brass does have a tendency to patina and darken with time. We love this about brass, but if you'd like to keep it in its shiny state, you can easily wipe it clean with a polishing cloth. You can also wipe your darkened yellow brass piece with a solution of white vinegar and salt to dissolve the discoloration. It will make your fingers smell like vinegar, but it's handy when you don't have a polishing cloth!
We never use brass in our ear posts, ear wires, chains, or rings, since direct contact with the skin can cause a green reaction. It is completely harmless, but annoying, so we avoid it altogether!
Sometimes called Nickel Silver or German Silver, this alloy is made with brass and nickel to give it its silvery color. It does not contain actual silver. It is very hard, resistant to scratches, and stays shiny for a long time. It will develop a patina with time (albeit slowly!). It can be polished with one of our polishing cloths. White brass does not like contact with chlorine. Our white brass is milled in the American Southwest.
If you have a nickel allergy, it is not advised to have direct skin contact for long periods of time with this metal. It is still okay touch the metal if you have an allergy. Nickel is not harmful unless you have a nickel allergy, and even then, the allergy will subside if the metal is removed from your skin. We only offer white brass hair pins to minimize skin contact.
New orders will ship in early April. We make every piece to order.

You made what I've been looking for! As others have responded, I am in a messy topknot for most of my days. It also holds well. I slept in it and woke up with same messy topknot but with a bit of glam attached and hell yes 💚. Understated and regal at the same time.
I was looking for ways to style my hair for work that it looked a little more put together than what I had been doing lately (hello, pony tails and plastic claw clips) and this is exactly what I needed! So simple yet elegant.
I love this product! It is beautiful, sturdy, and perfect for when I don't have a lot of time to get ready (i.e. everyday).
I've never had a hair pin before this, but it makes it so much easier to get a chic updo with this! My hair is pretty thin and slippery, so it did take me awhile to figure out how to use it, but now it's an everyday staple.
This is the first hairpin I bought (along with the crescent moon one also from Favor) and I take it with me in my purse or backpack every single day. I use it in a pinch or whenever I just need my hair out of my face or off my shoulders. It disappears into whatever configuration of updo I'm doing and makes my hair look effortless and chic. I kind of don't know how I lived without it before I owned it.
I really love the look of this hair pin and got it after another one. It is a bit shorter than the other hair pin I have (Crescent) , so I still haven't figured out how to get all of my hair up yet but I'm sure I'll be using it more once I figure out how to make it work with my hair.
I LOVE this pin and use every day. It's an easy, super-elevated way to wear your hair up, especially at work, when a pony or a scrunchie wouldn't work. I've already sent two friends over to purchase it because they loved how it looked in my hair so much.
I bought the Tuck hairpin for warm weather up dos and am so happy with how much hair it holds and how easy it is to use. I have long thick hair and find it difficult to find simple attractive hair accessories which can keep my styles secure and this pin works beautifully.
The brass tuck hair pin is beautiful and I LOVE putting it in my hair for that extra glint. I have a rather thick, slightly below shoulder-length hair, and for me the pin doesn't hold my hair up after a few minutes it will fall out. I hope this will change as my hair grow longer, but for now I tie my hair up in a bun with a regular hair tie and add the pin for decoration. The other issue is that the brass material is very flexible and bends when in my hair, so the two "horns" of the pin don't remain parallel but cross if that makes sense. I wish it was a little sturdier for the price!
