Someone gave it to DD

It's plastic
Crescent moon shaped - divided into 3 sections
About 4 inches long and 1.5 inches wide
HAs little teeth all around its edges

What the hell is it and how do I style her hair with it?!?

It's a hair lifter to create a beehive type bump

It's a bumpit! If you google there should be videos. They're quite good, I like mine smile

I have no idea, but I knew exactly what you were going to describe when I read your thread title!

Try this

Oh no, actually when I looked at random's link I realised that is not what I was thinking of.

My mystery hair accessory is more like a lattice fence that you can scissor in and out, with little triangle shaped bits facing inwards.

Anyone know what that is?

BTW isn't 'bumpits' the most bizarre name for a product ever? Surely everyone reads it like I do, as in 'bum pits', like 'arm pits'. Ewwwww.

SoSweet is yours to make a french pleat or similar?

BTW why did you namechange for a thread about hair clips?

Not sure Random, am busy googling hair clip images now! It is only a vague memory from my childhood. Maybe it had something to do with buns or something, it has a slightly 'old lady from the 70s' feel about it (my memory that is!).

Trills Sun 14-Oct-12 22:41:35

Did you ever have one of those loops on a stick?

Bun doughnuts are definitely in - one of my colleagues does a bun with a doughnut and she is very stylish.

I think it may have been a 1970s version of this

but with more triangley bits and more of a latticey type look. Argh, annoying vague memory floating around in tantalising manner at edge of brain...

Yes, it's a Bumpit! grin

Thanks so much

Have looked at YouTube, it's v easy to wear (the DP reckoned I looked like a bit of a nobber with it - shame, I though I looked quite niceblush) <deluded>

Still, on 8yo dd it'll be great - she'll love messing about with it and has long, thick hair so will prob work well
