If I say bobby pins you know I’m talking about hairpins. These are not the classics but the flat ones with a slightly notched side.
Know how to use bobby pins correctly
A few years ago I did not know how to use the bobby pins, I discovered that contrary to what I thought, the notched side of a bobby pins is not the one that must be visible. But, well the one that must be stuck against the skull. Believe me this discovery has changed my life.
When you put the flat side of a bobby pin against your skull you immediately feel that the pin is too tight. And if you have a sensitive scalp like me hello migraine. So, be careful to position them well.
The bobby pins hair accessories per excellence
These are perfect hairpins for all hairstyles. Especially when you want to hold your hair or fold a lock of hair on one side. A whole bunch of bobby pins can handle the most volatile frisettes. And you can stylize your hairstyles and impose direction / meaning on locks of hair.
The bobby pins are no longer hidden and become the stars of our hairstyles
it seems to me that a few years ago it was Rihanna that I saw during the MetGala, wearing well-seenbobby pins. as the trend setter that she is, the world of hairdressing has followed.
Exit the black bobby pins that were slipped as discreetly as possible into hair so that they were invisible. And hello the use of visible bobby pins, colored gold, brown or silver. More or less long, they come to complete the drawing of multiple geometric shapes in the hair. You made two buns and want to bring a slight fancy touch to them? Catch your box of bobby pins.
My professional advice?
If you have a big head like mine buy the very long ones so that they are clearly visible on your hair.
Choose colors that are visible, if you have black hair: gold or silver. If you are blonde prefer those of black or brown color.
Little but important point of attention: avoid damaging your hair with a broken bobby pins. Like all hairpins, if the small inflated tip has broken, simply throw the hairpin.
