We’ve taken pains to hiding ‘em bobby pins all our lives. The hair is a maze of secrets and bobby pins. Brace yourselves for this unique trend that’ll have heads turning for sure! Pop the bubbly, this calls for a mini celebration of sorts, for our heads are racing with ideas about how to wear bobby pins in an exposed fashion to keep it edgy and fashionable.
1. The Headband Look
No rocket science here. It cannot get simpler than this! All you need to do is place some bobby pins along your hairline to form a makeshift headband. Hair neatly tucked behind your ear and a battalion of bobby pins framing your face. A vision of Rihanna accessorizing her Mahogany mane with this hack at the MET Gala evening, just had us stop and stare. Check out latest Rihanna hairstyles.
2. The Hashtag Look
Who wants to put out your own trending hash tag when socializing? How you ask! Simple! Pull all your curls behind your ear and slide 2 bobby pins in parallel. Rehearse the same for the next 2 pins at 90-degrees to prefect the look as in the picture. Not a fan of the hashtag? Well then go geometric with your shapes – try a star or simpler still, a triangle, to jazz up that metal.
3. The Chevron
Inspired by the Chevron Pattern, this look can be done at the side of an afro, curls or the back and front of your buns. Grab a bobby pin and plug it in partially at a 30 to 45-degree angle. Now do the same thing in an opposite direction to make them meet in the middle like an open triangle. Make layers of this pattern to really decorate this classic hairstyle.
We all wear our hair like a crown. Just accentuate this crown and dazzle it up with the help of our tiny metal bobby buddies. Make a convenient top bun. Disguise your bobby pins like a pick and stick it halfway to the base of the bun. Repeat this in a circular fashion with equal spacing. Who’s the queen now?
No creating so much mess with your hair than with the bobby pins. Make a zigzag or a random pattern on the side of your curls to draw the attention. Go berserk with the bobby pins, the more the merrier.
Bobby pins make for one hell of an accessory. Though we also have a lot of stuff in the market encouraging us to accessorize further. Sneak up on How To Accessorize Your Natural hair.
