My little sister is a ballerina so buns are a pretty popular hair-style ‘round these parts. Personally, I don’t ever really sport a bun – my hair has always been too slippery to stay in place properly. I’m one of those people who hates to feel like my hair isn’t secure – which is why when my hair isn’t down, I often opt for a good ‘ol fashioned ponytail. However, I was pretty excited to try the Goody Spin Pin that I received in my Influenster Beauty Bloggers VoxBox- the pins looked so cool (and spinny – is that even a word?) that the allure of trying it out and attempting to put my hair in a bun was irresistible.
What you do is, you brush your hair up into a ponytail, then you curl/twist your hair around itself (or your finger) until you have a bun, then you tuck the tail end of your hair into your bun, holding the bun in place twist one spin pin downward from the top of your bun (you’ll want to actually twist this in, much like twisting a bottle cap close), then take the other pin and twist it upward from the bottom of your bun – that’s it! Viola- a perfect bun! Quick tip here – use a little hairspray before brushing your hair up, it helps tame frizz, fly-aways, and maintains the look longer. However, if my explanation doesn’t cut it, check out this vid here:
I have to say these spin pins are pretty darn cool – and what’s even better is that even slippery straight hair like mine will stay in! It creates a perfect, sturdy, chic bun – that even ballerina’s like my sister can appreciate! I already went to CVS and bought some for her – they make amazing stocking stuffers too! I’m happy to say that with the help of Goody’s Spin Pin I can actually appreciate the understated simplicity of a bun – its super cute, and totally keeps my hair out of my face! Love it!
The Goody Simple Styles Spin Pin retails at around $7.29 and comes in a light/dark hair variation. For more information check out Goody’s site here!
