Best "easy-up" Ever
I first found these in a drugstore. They were an impulse purchase. I have very long (bottom of my rib cage in back) medium/thick blonde hair. When I want to put it up I tend to wrap it in a bun and tie a pair of hair elastics around it, but that leaves a kink in my hair... Then I found spin pins. They are so easy! They allow me to put my hair up in a bun (out of my way) without leaving kinks in my hair, which allows me to go longer between washes/styles. Also, if I curl my hair and pull it into a looser bun, it creates a gorgeous loose bun/elegant updo. I have pairs of these pins stashed everywhere now! They also prevent me from pulling my hair too tight and giving me a headache. I've gotten them for my sister, mom, and best friend (all have long medium thick hair). They're better than straight pins because they actually hold the hair, (using only the two pins). They're also easier to use than straight pins. You just catch the piece of hair close to the head with one of the ends of the pin (like you would with straight pins) and then twist until the twist pin has gone all the way into the bun. Then do the same on the other side. Absolute hair must-have!
