Spin Pins and Buns

Several of you have asked for another hair week and while that may be possible (I'm thinking in the summer) here's a little something to tide you over.  Have you noticed that buns seem to be making a comeback?  Maybe they've never really left, but a messy bun seems to be pretty hip right now.

If you ever wear one or think you might want to, I'm going to introduce you to something fun today.  This is not a paid post.  I bought these myself at Wal-mart and I think they're cool.  They are called "Spin Pins" and they do the work of many bobby pins.

Here are a couple styles you could use them with.  I found a basic messy bun tutorial HERE.  I found a different and cool variation of a messy bun HERE.

I've been doing three little buns in the back lately.  This idea is actually on the inside of the package.  I bought the short spin pins that come in a 3-pack and they work great for this hairdo.  Here's the back.

Here's the front.

Here's another view of the back.  I don't use any elastics.  I just divide my hair into three sections, twist them into a bun, screw in the spin pin, and use a few bobby pins for extra security.  I do it a bit loose because I like the messy look.

If you want to see a video clip of how to put them in, I found one HERE on YouTube. 

So, let your mind race.  Think buns.  (Not like your booty and not the cinnamon ones either.)  Thanks for reading.
