#Bobby Pin Hacks

Things you will need: bobby pins and your favorite hairspray

If you are wondering why bobby pins aren’t holding your hair, and it is constantly falling down your face, there are two options. The first is that you are not using the bobby pins on the right side. The ribbed side of the bobby pins should be facing down because it holds the hair better that way. But if that doesn’t work for you, try spraying the bobby pins with your favorite hairspray. Then use them as normal, with the ribbed side facing down. The hairspray will help stick the bobby pin to your hair and make your hairstyle last way longer.

Who knew that a little hairspray can go such a long way!
