1. You’re Doing It Wrong: Wearing Bobby Pins The Right Way
Is it possible to do something as simple as putting a bobby pin in your hair, the wrong way? Yes, it is! And, most women have made the mistake their entire life. We all think that pins are supposed to be worn bumpy side down. Well, we have to disappoint you. The grooved side of the pin should face down, against your scalp. Because, you may be surprised, but the ribbed side is designed to grip hair and the flat one is meant to push the hair down and hold the hair into the grooves. You never knew this, did you? Start wearing Bobby pins this way and you will immediately see the difference.

5. Spray dry shampoo or texture spray on the bobby pin before insertion to prevent slippage
If you have fine hair or slippery strands that can’t hold anything then here is what to do before you put the Bobby pins in your hair. In order to prevent slippage, we recommend you add some grip to both, the pins and your hair before using the pins. You can apply some texture spray, salt spray, or volume powder. Once you spray the pins, lay them on a paper towel. Then, just before you use them, apply the texturizer to the hair too.

7. Keep Bobby pins in place
It may be a little hard to keep the Bobby pins in place. They constantly fall out! Why? The answer is so simple: you push them into an up-do and it slowly just slides right back out. In order to avoid this, try to lock the pin by inserting it from the opposite angle. Instead of pushing it up into the bun, you better stick it down through the bun. Then, simply hook some hair, flip the pin and re-insert it at the correct angle. Once you try this sway of locking pins, you will never face the problem of falling put pins ever again.

If the locking technique described above does not help, then you will definitely adore this simple technique of wearing pins in your hair. It is a simple technique (not confusing like the locking one) and the only thing you need to do is to slide in the first pin, then slide the second one in the opposite direction. This way you will have them crossing in the middle and interlock like an X.
