Bobby pins are among the most underrated tools for hair styling - they are small, but can completely transform a simple hairdo into a modern and elegant hairstyle, all while keeping your hair strands tight and secured in one place.
In this article, we will talk about all things bobby pins - including some awesome ways to use bobby pins for your hair, and what are some of the biggest tips and tricks that you should keep in mind while using bobby pins to style your hair. So, without further ado, let's jump right into it!
So, what are bobby pins in the first place?
Bobby pins, also known as hair clips or hair slides, are small, U-shaped hair accessories that can be used to hold hair in place and hide flyaways. They usually have one end being open and the other curved to create the "U" shape. The curved end is typically the side used to secure the hair in place.
Bobby pins for hair come in different designs and colors - from simple and discreet ones that you can blend with your hair color and style in a way that makes them almost invisible, to beautiful and sophisticated pins that are designed to add accent to your hairstyle and level it up.
Even though they are very small, you would be surprised with the amount of versatility they offer! If you are wondering how to use or wear bobby pins, here are just some of the functionalities they have:
They are your biggest ally when it comes to holding hair in place, especially when creating easy hair updos like buns or French twists. All you need to do is gather your hair, twist it into the desired shape, and slide the bobby pin horizontally to secure it.
For maximum performance, grab your Freeze Please finishing hairspray, and your updo will stay in place all day long!
Looking for a stylish and modern hairstyle without much effort? Bobby pins are a great way to create half-up hairstyles.
All you need to do is gather the top section of your hair and secure it at the back of your head with bobby pins, leaving the rest of your hair down.
If you are growing out your bangs, or keep getting frustrated with shorter layers that won't stay in one place (we feel you!), don't worry - bobby pins can be a great tool for pinning them back discreetly.
If you want to get your hair volumized, you will be surprised how effective bobby pins for hair can be for this goal.
Gather small sections of hair at the crown, tease them gently, and use bobby pins to secure the teased sections in place. This will create a wonderful lifted volume.
These tiny, but powerful hair accessories can also help secure the ends of braids or keep braids in place if they start to unravel.
Bobby pins for hair can also be used to hide the hair elastic when you are going for certain hairstyles such as ponytails and buns. Simply slide them over the elastic and into the hair.
And of course, let's not forget about one of the most fun, but often underrated uses of hair clips and bobby pins for hair - they can add a stunning touch to your hairstyle as a decorative element.
They are undoubtedly a very easy and stylish way to glam up for any event!
These beautiful accessories are also a great way to tame flyaway hairs and keep them in place for a sleek look.
Of course, keep in mind that bobby pins are not a permanent fix for flyaways. If you are looking for a long-term solution to frizz and flyaways, we highly recommend adding the NuMe Clout Control Anti-Frizz Hairspray to your hair care routine.
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.
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 in 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 and cute updos 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.

Yes, bobby pins are safe for hair when used properly. Avoid pulling or tugging too hard, and opt for high-quality pins to prevent damage.
Using bobby pins on wigs is generally safe, but be gentle to avoid damaging the wig's fibers. Secure the wig with care to prevent any pulling or tearing.
To get bobby pins to stay in fine hair, try these tips: 1) Use matte bobby pins, as they provide better grip. 2) Spray pins with hairspray for added hold. 3) Insert them flat against the scalp or in a crisscross pattern for better stability.
A hair pin is a long, U-shaped pin used to hold hairstyles in place, offering a light hold ideal for updos. In contrast, a bobby pin has a tight grip with one straight side and one wavy side, designed to secure hair close to the scalp, making it versatile for various hairstyles.
Wearing bobby pins is generally safe for your hair. However, frequent or improper use can lead to breakage or damage, especially if they're too tight or used on wet hair.
It's important to use them correctly and give your hair a break from them regularly to avoid any adverse effects.
Bobby pins often slip out due to incorrect placement, smooth texture, or not matching the hair's thickness.
To improve grip, use the wavy side against your scalp, ensure they're not too wide for your hair type, and use additional pins for thicker or heavier sections of hair.
You should discard bobby pins when they lose their shape, become too loose to hold hair effectively, or if the tips wear off, exposing the metal, which can snag or damage your hair.
Regularly inspecting and maintaining your bobby pins helps prevent hair damage and ensures effective use.
