Research Facts
Bobby pins were used by nurses to secure their caps to their hair.
Carl W. Renstrom was an Omaha, Nebraska businessman; the creator of Tip-Top Products Company. He began selling hair products made of metal in 1936, and was a success. During the Second World War, he re-tooled his machines to create military wire reels, barbed wire throws, and land mine crates, After the war, he converted to plastics, selling the company to Rayette Co. (later Faberge) in 1964 for twenty-five million dollars.
