The Bobby Pin… You’re Doing It Wrong

If a woman leaves bobby pins, she is marking her territory.

I have been a hair stylist for almost 10 years and when I saw this I was like “hot damn!”

The groves of the bobby pin assist in holding the hair in place. When the flat side is against your head, it can more easily slide down. It has been life-changing since I came across this little gem of a tip.

So, now let’s take it to the next level!

Bobby pins are smooth metal. To give them extra grip spray them with dry shampoo or a light hairspray and BINGO! Those babies aren’t going anywhere.

Let’s lock and load them. To effectively hold twists and braids, follow the picture above. The bobby pin is almost completely hidden and it holds much better. With this tip, you can easily achieve so many different styles.

Now, if you are anything like me, bobby pins seem to migrate into places in my house where they seem to be lost and gone forever. Store bobby pins in tic-tac containers. Keep one by your bedside, in your vanity, and shoot, put one in your purse for hair emergencies or midday transformations. Plus, we’re repurposing what would normally be trash. Go green, baby!

These tricks are game changers! Honestly, I just made your life 10 times better! And remember, practice makes perfect! It will definitely take a minute to change your way, but pretty soon you will be yelling at your friends, “You’re doing it wrong!”
