Add some flair to a sleek straight look by creating a chevron, criss-cross or stacked pattern of bobby pins across one side section, or around your crown. To achieve the base for this look, prep wet hair with the NuMe Sleeky In A Bottle Serum then after blow drying, spray with Watch Me Werk Thermal Heat Protectant and straighten with the Megastar Hair Straightener.
A fun twist for hair that's been freshly curled with the NuMe Curling Wand, rather than securing the top section of hair in the back with an elastic or barrette, use bobby pins to form a triangle. It will just involve pulling three parts to the back, one from the top front of the hairline and one from each side.
This look is key for when you want the half pony to take center stage. While doable for any length of texture, it's really fun for hair that's long and thick. For maximum volume, start with a with a root lifter like NuMe Root Werk Root Lifter before drying and then when hair is dry, maximize waves with NuMe Magic Curling Wand (32 mm barrel). Secure the high pony/bun top with an elastic and pin down the hairs just behind the hairline with the bobby pins—you can get creative with directions and styles!
As long as you have plenty of bobby pins and hairspray like our Hair-Fie Ready Finishing and Shine Hairspray, you can go to town on bun styles. Just remember, to insert, twist and point the pin in the opposite direction if you really want the strands to stay secure.
Create hashtag symbols with bobby pins. It looks cool on any shape or style. Again, just make sure you've got high-quality pins and plenty of hairspray. #hair is the goal.
These are just a few of many unique styles you can create with bobby pins (now that you know the basics of using them, yay), whether your hair is short, long, curly or straight.
