Three Things You Didn't Know About Bobby Pins!

Posted on September 27 2013

1. The Bumpy side should always touch your scalp
By putting the bumpy side down you keep the bobby pin from sliding out of your hair!
2.There is such a thing as a bad bobby pin
When the two legs of a bobby pin cross over themselves, throw it away. A damaged bobby pin will never work right!
3. Bobby pins hold up hair-they don't defy gravity
If you insert the bobby pin going down, hair will slide out of it.  If your bobby pin points up you will create a more secure updo!
