I Love… Spin Pins

While eavesdropping on Twitter the other day, I was surprised to learn that some ladies still had not tried (or even heard of!) Goody’s SPIN PIN. When it came out last year I knew instantly that I had to have it!

My hair is down to the middle of my back and on the thicker side, so doing a bun the traditional way requires a zillion bobby pins. But SPIN PINS do the work of something like 20 bobby pins to hold your hair in place. I was a slight bit skeptical at first, but for under $10 (actually I think more like under $7!), it was definitely worth trying!

I am not exaggerating in the least when I saw this is one of the best hair accessories/tools/tricks I’ve found in a long time! It holds my hair in a bun all day and is the simplest thing to use.

Step One: Pull your hair up into a pony tail (no hair band needed!), twist, and wrap the pony tail around itself.

Step Two: Take one of the SPIN PINS and spin it into hair from the front of the bun.

Step Three: Take the other SPIN PIN and spin it into hair from the back of the bun.

VOILA!! You have a bun. See, couldn’t be easier! This is a picture of the SPIN PIN BUN after 8+ hours. Still looking pretty good to me!

Are you already a fan of SPIN PINS or is this something you have yet to try?

    Great tutorial. I think my hair needs to be a little longer for them to work perfectly, but I definitely love mine.

    Wow, looks awesome! Your hair is seriously gorgeous by the way! My hair is so thin… I can’t decide if I think these would work or not.

    I must try this. I am in the military and have super long hair. Since I am not mega awesome at styling my coiffure, it is always a bun. I want to give these a shot. I will let you know how they work for my super fine hair!

    I have these but I’ve always been worried that I won’t be able to get the things out, or that they’ll tangle horribly. My hair is just about to my waist, super thick and wavy. I may have to be brave and break them out of the box to give them a try.

    I use these, but they don’t work NEARLY as well for my hair as they do for yours. When I make a bun, I use 2 elastic bands (first one to make a pony tail, second to wrap around the bun itself), 2 spin pins, and oftentimes I still need a bobby pin or two to capture the pieces that just insist on sticking out. They certainly make my bun a lot more secure, but if I try to use just the spin pins, it untwists itself and falls down before I can make it out the door.

    I’ve seen these in the dollar store several times. Last time I went I finally picked a pack up.

    Now, I can’t wait to try them! :) thank you!

    I’ve wanted to try, but figured it would be difficult. You make it look really easy.

    These pins are great. I use these on my daughter’s hair. After trying many different methods, this is the only way I can get a bun to neatly stay in her hair throughout her ballet and dance classes.

    I got these a few months ago and love them!! I have thick straight hair and at night I use these and make a top knot on my head so in the morning I get some body and movement. And it doesn’t tug on my scalp like how using rubber bands did for my hair. Worth it!! I got the pack of 3. It’s a bit smaller but still does the trick :)

    I have yet to try these and I really appreciate the tutorial because I honestly had looked at them several times but was skeptical if they would hold my thick hair. Now I am going to pick them up next time I am in the store.
