I love having long hair and honestly can’t imagine what I would look like without it! Call it my signature! But in the summer when it’s blazing hot, this mane can be a little too much to handle, which is why I always end up pulling it back into a ponytail…
Now it’s not like I want to wear it that way but my hair is thick and I have a lot of it-so its always been really chanllenging to get it to do much else.
See this pic above…that’s the “look” I’ve always wanted, but I could never get my hair to stay in a bun for very long and actually look pretty. I could wrap it and it would stay for a little while, but it would eventually fall out and back to my pony tail I go.
Well, then I met the Goody Spin Pin! This new hair tool does the work of 20 bobby pins- so it really supports and locks in the style without having to do much work yourself.
The key here is that unlike regualr straight bobby pins, these pins are coiled (like a double helix) so they spin into the bun to hold it! Just pull your hair back (you can use a ponytail holder or not-but I do for extra support) twist it, wrapt it around to create a loose bun and then “screw” the pins in from opposite directions to hold it. After it’s up, I pull out some shorter layers around my face and some pieces on the under side for that “messy” look!
These pins cost about $6.00 and you can get them anywhere from Walmart to Walgreens–and considering the only thing that used to tame my hair was a $50.00 blowout, these are going to be my summer staple!!
