Why is a bobby pin called a bobby pin?

In 1899 the bobbing pin came into wide use as the hairstyle known as the “bob cut” or “bobbed hair” took hold. It was invented in Paris by Robert (Bobby) Pinot. As foreigners caught wind of his invention, the hairstyle gained momentum and the pin became known as “Bobby’s pin.”
