Spiral Hair Pins

Standard

Have you guys seen these fun new spiral shaped bobby pins?? They are perfect for throwing your hair up into a seamless bun and it’s so easy to do! They twist right into your hair, hold  firmly in place, and you can’t even see them in there! Your up-do will stay all day because they lock in very tightly (but painlessly!). How great is that? Instead of 20 bobby pins, you just need 2 or 3 or these!

You can find spin pins anywhere they sell hair accessories or online at amazon. You can buy either gold or brown for light or dark hair and either 3 mini or 2 regular sized pins depending on the length and thickness of your hair. For my hair, I find the 3 minis are best, otherwise sometimes the long pin sticks out the other side of my bun.

Gather your hair at the back of your head, but no need to use a pony tail holder. Before wrapping the hair into the bun, I find it easier to twist the “pony tail” like this:

Then, start to wrap your hair into a tight bun. Tuck any loose ends into the bun.

Take the first pin and twist it clockwise into the top of the bun. Take the second pin (and maybe a third) and twist it in from the base of the bun. Spin the pin all the way in until you can’t see it anymore.

I love using them on days when I let my hair dry overnight and need a solution for the kinks…or when I want my hair up, but looking a little fancier than just a pony tail.

That’s it! It will last all day or night!
