Ugh. Why won't bobby pins stay in my hair?!

Me, too, WendyK. I have very fine individual hairs, but a bunch of 'em. I never think of my hair as thick, because it is so fine, until I get to the salon and my stylist says "Gah. You have so MUCH hair!"

Are you using them correctly? Most people don't.
Soooo . . . upside down is actually right side up???? I have curly hair too, so I never knew this. I always had to get my daughter those clips that snap into place because bobby pins wouldn't stay in her thick hair.

The Goody spin pins work for me too. I really want to try bobby pins upside down/right side up now! Thanks for that tip.

Have you tried Spin Pins? They're little corkscrew-shaped pins that claim to do the job of 15 bobby pins (or somesuch marketing hyperbole). They really do work very well, though. I got mine at Walgreens, and I've seen them at Target, as well.
I love me some Spin Pins!! I can put my below-the-waist hair up in a bun in a few minutes with three Spin Pins. If I use hair pins or bobby pins, we're talking boatloads of metal in my hair, lol.

I've seen spin pins. They are too large for this particular style. If it were a regular bun, maybe.
