Bobby Pins: Yes or Hot Mess?

The low-cost hair tool is all the rage in Hol­ly­wood, but it takes know-how to get a good grip on the look

In Touch (USA) - - Beauty bandwagon -

No longer play­ing hide-and­don’t-seek with bobby pins, celebs are in­cor­po­rat­ing the once-dis­creet strand hold­ers into ev­ery­day styles, mak­ing them the star of the hair show. “Bobby pins are an ef­fort­less way to add de­tail and in­ter­est to a ’do while still clev­erly keep­ing it in place,” ex­plains Chris Dy­lan, the celebrity hair­styl­ist re­spon­si­ble for Brooke BurkeCharvet’s fem and fun pin-heavy style at bot­tom right. Dy­lan notes that the key to en­sur­ing the look reads as in­ten­tional, and not like pins were ac­ci­den­tally re­vealed, is to opt for ones that con­trast with hair color. “And use them to cre­ate a cool, in­ter­est­ing de­sign,” he tips. Sim­ply snag some Sta-rite Bobby Pins ($2 for 60 pins, sally­beauty.com, come in bronze, white, blond and black) and take cues from these stars on prime pin place­ment.
