I wear a bobby pin (or many) in my hair almost every day. By the end of the day between 50% – 75% of those bobby pins are gone. I have lost thousands of bobby pins. I know other women have, too — I wonder, where do they all go? It seems like the streets should be littered with misplaced bobby pins, right?
Well, anyway — I discovered something that will change our lives forever!
You know how there is a squiggly part on one side of a bobby pin? WELL, beauties, that part of the bobby pin is actually significant and not decorative. The squiggles are designed to hold your hair and prevent the bobby pin from falling out! So when you put on a bobby pin, put it on squiggly side down (“facing” your scalp) so that it can “clip” the hair and hold it in place.
Okay, sit down. Take a breather. Who knew, right?!
Insanity. Everything I knew about bobby pins has been infinitely changed for the better.
Let’s raise our glass to losing less bobby pins!
