Chevron Pins

This is a feather-inspired look that will take your 'do to the next level.

  1. First, start with a classic bun updo.
  2. Then, you’re going to put the bobby pine in your hair in an upside down “V” shape. You can do just one “V” or go as far down as the bun. 
  3. Remember, the wavy side of the bobby pin goes down. This holds your hair better and gives you a sleeker final look. 

Crisscross Pins

This styles gives new meaning to “X” marks the spot.

  1. Start this style with your hair down, and split your hair into different sections.
  2. Next, overlap two bobby pins to create an “X” shape. Repeat this step until you work around the base of the crown of your head.
  3. If you’d like, you can even do different crisscross designs to frame your face. 

Stacked Pins 

This is a super-easy look that makes a big statement. 

  1. This style works when your hair is either up or down. Just take a few bobby pins in a bold color and stack them on the strands next to your face to create a bold new accessory. It’s that simple! 
  2. Try pairing red pins with a bold red lip to make sure all eyes are on you all day!
