History: The single stem hairpin was in existence during the early Egyptian times, although some anthropologists believe that even the earliest cave dwellers used everything from thorns to bones to fashion crude hairpins.  In China, during 13th century, the single stem hair pin was adorned with flowers and other artistic figurines.  The double point hairpin, also known as a hair stick, is a U-shaped cylinder that is bent at the top where the pendant lies, and the two cylinders extend parallel to each other.  The double point hairpin is said to have been first found in China during the 12th century.
