The chignon made easy

It's official, I'm retiring my bobby pins thanks to Goody's new styling tool- Spin Pins.
One of my all-time favorite looks is a chignon- in all forms:

And with the help of my new-found $6 "hair toy", yup I just made that up, the process of getting the above looks has been greatly streamlined.

Here is a quick tutorial I found on you tube:

And here is my first out-of-the-box attempt.
Pun intended, I'm hooked. You?

I swear by these, I think I have over 20 scattered around my house, car, and bags. I have VERY thick and very long hair, they are the best thing to me since sliced bread. I can even run with them and they support my hair...seriously true love towards these little guys.

I wish my hair was long enough for this. I'm working on growing it out. Maybe by summer, I can work it out.

I've been using these for months and LOVE them, especially in the summer. They tend to slip out of my hair after about an hour, but otherwise I adore them. Love your little bun!

Very impressed, but I'm a bit weary of how well it will work with my crazy thick hair...

Tommy said...

Very cool.

I'm a HUGE bun wearer now that my hair is so long and babygirl pulls on it even in ponytails. I leave a trail of bobbypins all over our house. I finally bought a set of these at Walgreen's after reading your review and I have to say I am HOOKED!!!
