Talking to Irene reminded me to do a post about spin pins by Goody. You can get these awesome little pins in packs of two (large) or three (small) at any drugstore. They’re awesome for putting your hair in a bun! Just tie your hair back in a ponytail, wind the excess hair around, and spin in a spin pin! Add another spin pin for additional support.
I know it sounds strange, but I swear to God it works! I’ve recommended it to three people so far, all with different textures and lengths of hair, and they’ve all loved spin pins! It’s the absolute easiest way to put your hair up in a bun, I promise!
