I can’t navigate a bobby pin. I’m not even sure I’m spelling it right, so clearly all dimensions of this trickster in hair design elude me. Bobbi? Booby? Wait, that’s definitely not right.
Regardless of how I misspell it, I’m telling you. It’s almost a weapon in my hands. I twist. I turn. I pin. It flies across the room. It’s all fun and fluffy hair until someone loses an eye.
I try again. I pin. Success! Until slow…ly…my…style…droops back…where it was. Thank you and…cut. Scene and cut my hair. Cuz this is pissing me off.
My stylist friends have zero problems. They just flip-flap-floop and looky there…the perfectly placed bobby pin that brings such strength to a do that a gale force wind don’t take it down. That sucker is going nowhere.
So when someone showed me Goody Simple Styles Spin Pin Mini ($7.29), I might have done a little spin. One of these pins does the work of 20 annoying bobby pins. Simply twirl your hair and twist the two Spin Pins together for an undone bun. Here’s how:
- Gather your hair at the nape of your neck (minus the ponytail holder).
- Twist your hair into a tight bun and tuck in the ends.
- Spin one pin from the top, the other from the bottom (don’t cross the streams though…a little joke for those Ghostbuster fans).
It’s super easy and holds a ton of hair. Just screw it into your hair. Like a wine opener into a cork. Something I’m good at since bobby pins drive me to drink. Why must all things lead to a glass of wine in my world…moving on.
