PIN IT TO WIN IT

This may seem like a simple task to some of you, but I find that a lot of people struggle with hiding a bobby pin. The best way to conceal your weapon is to slide the pin back up into the hair in the opposite direction that the hair is going (see image example). By doing this, you create the strongest support while hiding your bobby pin at the same time. This is how every section was pinned in our “Twisted Sister” updo tutorial. As wedding/prom season quickly approaches this trick should come in very handy.

HEAVY METAL

TREND HUNTING: We’ve always loved hardware detail on clothing, but what do we think about showing your pretty pins on purpose? It’s kind of cool we think. Would you be excited to see this become a trend?

ON THAT NOTE

Ladies and gentleladies… not all bobby pins are the same. This weekend, go through your stash. Test what you’ve got. If you pull them apart gently and they stay apart, you need new bobby pins. They should be strong enough to stay closed. If ¬†they’re not, you’ll have a harder time getting your updo to stay! The stronger they are, the less you’ll need. This is a little tip that goes a long way.

Have a great weekend!
