The Dark Art of Spin Pins

10 Sep

My hair is getting extremely long and unmanageable in such a way that, because I haven’t had it this long since I was a toddler, I no longer know what to do with it.  So I have been trying to find ways to put it up [read: to not deal with it], but still have it look office-ready.  The only problem with putting my hair up is, half the time I do try to updo my hair, I always come out looking like I just escaped from an FLDS compound.

But Goody has come to my rescue!  They’ve recently released a product called Spin Pins and they’ve not only convinced me that they are magical, but they have singlehandedly convinced me that Voldemort isn’t actually dead, he’s just using his black magic for Goody Hair Styling Accessories.

How to Use Them:
They come with a style guide for three easy hairstyle that are really just based on the placement of your bun.  It has you start with a ponytail, but I’ve been just wrapping it up into a bun by hand.

All you have to do is grab your hair, twist it up into a bun anywhere on your head, twist one spin pin into the bottom of the bun and the other into the top.  This style literally takes five seconds and can hold your hair in a chic chignon for up to nine hours.

Speaking from experience, you can even go into a workout with them in and come away with only a few flyaway strands.  Instead of having to carry around my usual army supply of bobby pins, now I only need two spin pins.  They’re strong, they’re industrial, and you could probably break into a few locks with them.

I never thought I would say that a hair accessory company is clever—or that I would even do a product review on a hair accessory that I am uncharacteristically passionate about—but damn ya’ll, they have smart ideas.  Spin Pins could very well be the scrunchy of the 21st century.

Spin Pins are available for light hair and dark hair at Target, Walgreens, CVS, or Walmart.  Target sells the pair for $5.99.
