. . . BACK TO REALITY
When the plain but beautiful-without- glasses Miss Jones, in time-honoured tradition, whipped a pin out of her hair, she did it with one swift hand movement. Those of us who have tried to recreate this coquettishness, even if only in the privacy of our bedrooms, will know that to hold hair up successfully you need at least 400 very unattractive kirby grips. No longer - gather your hair up into a chignon, stick one of these in and you're away. AB
Hair pins by Johnny Loves Rosie, pounds 7.95 each at Harvey Nichols, Knightsbridge, London SW1 and branches of Fenwick. Enquiries: 0171 435 0089.
