Your bobby pin can help set your hair in more ways than you think. Take a look at these bobby pin tricks that help you get the look you want. Your hair loose or up in a ponytail, will set perfectly with these concealed bobby pins. 6 Ways To Make The Most Of Your Bobby Pin 1. To get the right grip, flip our bobby pin over If you are having a hard time to fix those bobby pins correctly, flip it over. The straight side wont grip as well as the wavy side and more textured side. 2. Spray a bit of dry shampoo Spray some dry shampoo on the inside of your bobby pin to give it more of a grip. Tease the ends of your hair with a comb before you slip those pins in. 3. Get the locking technique Direct the open end of the pin against the direction of your hair that is pulled. Rotate the pin so that the open end is facing the same direction as your hair and then push the pin into your hair to secure the same. If placed correctly, the pins will pull your hair tighter and be unnoticeable. Repeat these steps, until your style is absolutely done. 4. A hidden bobby pin will get your style right Tie the ends of your braid into a knot, once done slide a bobby pin upwards into the knot to secure it. You will have a perfectly set braid with no visible pins on your hair. 5. Get that natural swept look with hidden bobby pins Sweep your hair over and put pins on either sides of your ears, which would seem invisible. This prevents your hair from falling forward or off the sides. You can enjoy the night without having to constantly worry about your hair. 6. Cover your elastic band with a section of your hair After you have tied your ponytail, take a small section of your hair from the tail and wrap it around the base. Tuck the loose ends and settle it by inserting a bobby pin into the base.
