Bobby Pin Technique


Hello I hope you are all having a wonderful day so far. I have been trying to find various ways to defeat this heat. I like summer, but I am not a big fan of summer's weather. If that even makes sense.

With this heat I will be looking up new ways to wear my hair up or to keep my hair out of my face. Bobby pins will always be one of my favorite accessories to achieve these summer hairstyles.

I heard somewhere that there was a correct way of placing bobby pins in our hair to make it stay, and the way we are all used to using them is wrong.

We all know that the squiggly part of the bobby pin goes face up when we place it in our hair right?



Wrong!  The correct way to use a bobby pin is with the squiggly part down.


Inserting bobby pins in your hair this way will give it a better grip. The Flat part up will flatten and tighten the hair inside the bobby pin. This bobby pin technique will give you more volume and a longer lasting hairstyle. 

Are you mind blown? I am because I seriously had no idea. I have been wearing bobby pins wrong my entire life. What do you think? Will you continue to wear bobby pins the wrong way or the correct way. I'm still debating on whether or not I should change the way I use them. Well anyway I hope you all have a wonderful day. Stay hydrated!
