3 Easy Bobby Pin Hair Styles

I love the Fall and Winter seasons, but it can do some serious damage to my hair. Those winds wreak havoc on my long locks and it forces me, at times, to pull them into a boring ponytail. Instead of going for an elastic, try pinning your tresses back with bobby pins. There are so many colors and combinations of bobbies that you can choose from and I've found that by doing simple patterns, you can really make a statement.

First, grab some bobby pins in any variety that you like. I found pretty little pastel ones from Sephora along with metallic ones at my local drugstore. If you have a favorite gem, super glue it onto a plain pin or even use nail polish to color coordinate perfectly.

Pull a thin piece of hair from the front of your head back and form a loop. Start at the top of the loop and start pinning downwards creating a little bit of space between each pin. Then pin the bottom part of the strand into a second loop. It's a little different and will keep your hair from flying all over the place.

Style #2

Take one strand of hair and pin it back with a thick bobby pin. Then grab a thinner section of hair directly underneath the first and cross it over. Pin with another thick bobby pin. The simple criss-cross of hair looks complicated and pretty with the decorative bobbies.

Style #3

Overlap two thick pieces of hair on top of each other and add bobbies on either side. Use metallic ones to make a statement "X". You can add more "X" shapes or leave it at one. We love that these bobbies are chic and functional!
