I have a love/hate relationship with bobby pins. Sometimes they delight me to no end; other times I’m still discovering them halfway through my shower (“Seriously?! How did that end up there?!”). When I found a post on the Free People blog while perusing Pinterest, I decided to try out a new style and see how it fit.
Now, as any good girl, I have an extensive bobby pin collection. Whether they’re ‘good’ or not is another thing entirely; unlike some straight-haired vixens, bobby pins have no issue staying (and staying, and staying) in my hair; the same goes for fingers, bugs, and bits of food. That’s just curl. What I do have issues with, from time to time, is getting the bobby pins to do their job. Namely, getting them to actually hold back the mass of curls.
Which, to be honest, is why this fun look really appealed to me. They didn’t have to serve a purpose, other than to look cool. Like hair art. And since I already consider my hair to be art, this was just icing on the cake.
This look is very simple: to create a chevron, simply place one bobby pin in your hair. Take another and latch it through the end so that they intersect with each other, creating a ‘V’. Do this a few times. You may have to fiddle a bit to get it right, but it’s a cool effect that’s totally worth it. Wear it whenever and get ready for the amazed reactions! Look at you, being all creative!
