Did you know that the average women spends 20 minutes a day styling her hair? Here’s a tip for shortening your hair styling time: buy Goody’s Spin Pin!
I credit my hair stylist, Mary, to introducing me to the cleverly named Spin Pin. I have layered hair that is pretty darn thick, so Mary knows I’m always on the hunt for time-saving styling tools.
I like the simplicity of a bun or chignon, but the traditional method of twisting my ponytail into the shape of a delicious cinnamon bun and securing with an elastic and bobby pins has never worked for me. The bun immediately starts to droop and pieces of my layers stick out in every direction. Bleh.
Luckily, Goody has solved this problem with their Spin Pins, nicely priced at $6. The box explains how to use the pins in 3 simple steps: gather your hair at the nape of your neck, twist into a tight bun, spin one pin from the top and the other up from the base. Viola! No ponytail holders or bobby pins necessary.
The pins are surprisingly sturdy and do a great job of really grabbing a hold of the entire bun. Sure, some layers still stick out a bit, but the Spin Pins keeps the bun tightly in place. My recommendation is to do this style with day-old hair and use some hairspray before and after you twist in the pins. And don’t fuss! It’s supposed to look a little undone.
Has anyone else tried the Spin Pin? I bought mine at CVS and it looks like Target, Walmart, and Walgreens carry them, too. The pins come in blonde and brunette.
Here’s a great video tutorial on how to use the Spin Pins from one of my favorite YouTube hair gurus (she’s got a great broadcaster voice, doesn’t she?):
