Hairpins stars Enid Bennett as Muriel Rossmore, a housewife who has let her appearance go to seed. Muriel's husband Rex (Matt Moore), turned off by his wife's dowdy appearance, begins casting about for newer, prettier female companionship. At this point, the audience is way ahead of the game, knowing full well that Muriel will undergo a radical cosmetic change to win her husband back. Sure enough, our heroine dolls herself up as a flapper -- and is so successful in this new guise that Rex doesn't recognize her! The tried-and-true plotline of Hairpins would be pressed into service well into the 1960s in such films as Two-Faced Woman and My Geisha.
