Bobby Pins For Up-dos
- Ever have an issue with your bobby pins sliding out? You are probably using them the wrong way. Make sure the wavy side is facing down towards your head! The waves grip onto your locks, making it so that your updo won’t budge.
- Spray your bobby pins with hairspray or dry shampoo before putting them in your hair. This will make the hair pins sticky and help to ensure that they stay put all day.
- You don’t always have to hide your bobby pins! Try the exposed bobby pin trend. Pick bobby pins that contrast with your hair color and position them to make a design. You can make a triangle to hold up your half up, half down hairdo or pin your bangs back with a chevron pattern by creating shapes with the hair pins. Get creative with different bobby pin colors and design patterns!
Tip: Crisscross two bobby pins for extra hold to lock in your look.
Ponytail Holders & Hair Elastics
Ponytail hairstyles are the easiest type. To ramp up this playful yet effortless look, split the pony horizontally and put one of your small hair clips in the middle of the base to give your ponytail an extra lift. Have thin hair but want the appearance of a fuller, longer ponytail? You’re in luck because you can achieve that look with just two hair ties. First, section off the hair above your ears and simply put it in a ponytail. Then, take the remaining hair and put that into a ponytail as well, securing it with a hair elastic as close to the top ponytail as possible. To finish it off, tease the top ponytail to make the two look like one! Try wrapping a small piece of hair around your ponytail holder and pin it with a bobby pin to create a more polished, classier look.
