How To Use Bobby Pins….
Recently, I had a “How in the world did I not know this” moment. For years, I have been using bobby pins the wrong way. Somehow, the proper use of this basic hair tool, that looks so simple to use, had escaped me. Now, I could blame my Mother, who I love dearly, but as she confesses, doing hair was never her strong suit. Let’s face it, I have been doing both my own hair and my daughter’s hair for a long time. No excuses, but I must admit, when I look around at other Moms, somehow, they missed the memo too.
So, if you are like me and missed this basic hair styling life skill, here is the deal. As in the picture above, you are supposed to insert the bobby pin into your hair, wavy side down. Yes, wavy side down. The ridges on the bobby pin grab the hair and secure the bobby pin in place. Go ahead, grab one of the many bobby pins laying around the house, in your purse, dance bag, car, or pocket and try it out. In fact, put one in the correct way and one in the “wrong” way – feel the difference. Life changing I tell you, life changing. Especially for girls with thin hair, the bobby pin will actually stay in your hair.
I hope this quick tip, will make your next hairstyling adventure go a little smoother oh and be sure to share this tidbit with your friends. They will love you for it.
