Have you heard of the Spin Pin? Are you picturing a fidget spinner? Well, stop, because what we're about to tell you will change your on-the-go hairdo forever. Don't worry, we hadn't heard of a Spin Pin either, though it's been around for a while. Now, what is it exactly, and is it really life-changing? (Maybe, if you're the type of person to press snooze one too many times.)
A Spin Pin ($6) is this miraculous corkscrew hair accessory by Goody, and while it may look daunting, it truly works wonders. We've passed it in the hair accessory aisle before but were not aware of its potential until now, and yeah, we're never going back.
Read on to learn how to use the Spin Pin correctly. We've included a guided visual for extra help.
The Goody Spin Pin
The Spin Pin is a small hair accessory that creates nearly-instant updos, buns, and French twists with ease. So, if you're tired of struggling with extra bobby pins or hairpulling ponytails, this is your time to shine. Below, peep a handy chignon tutorial for an effortless, and simple style.
Gather Hair into a Ponytail
The first step towards creating an easy updo with the Goody Spin Pin is to gather hair into a loose ponytail. For a traditional bun, gather hair at the nape of your neck. If you want your chignon higher, gather hair into a ponytail in the center or closer to the top of your head.
You do not need to use a ponytail holder. If you recently washed your hair, you may want to spritz in some dry shampoo, hair spray or wax-based product for extra hold.
A few tips to remember:
- If your hair is fine or you just washed it, spritz in a texturizing product.
- You do not need a ponytail holder or any extra pins or accessories to create this easy updo.
- To create a French twist style, arrange your bun vertically and twist pins in.
- To create a side bun, start with your ponytail on the side.
- Twist pins in clockwise. Remove them counterclockwise.
- Do not interlock the pins.
- Your updo doesn't have to be perfect. A few loose tendrils in the front or back make it more stylish.
