Introducing... Spin Pins!
These nifty, twirled bobby pins are A-mazing. They twist into your messy bun and make it look like it's effortless. Depending on your hair type (mine is naturally curly and thick), these will work to varying degrees. But for a few bucks, it's worth a try. I use these on days I just don't feel like styling my curly hair, it's too hot and/or humid to try to style it, or I want to catch the Coastie's eye, I just put my hair into a bun, and twist these bad boys in. A cute headband never hurts, either.
They are my new best friends when it comes to styling my hair! Shhh... don't tell my very expensive Chi hair straightener I said that.
