I can't live without...my Goody Spin Pins






 I have a love-hate relationship with hair grips (bobby pins). I love that they keep my hair in place, but I hate how I always need to use loads to keep my hair in place and how I can never find one when I need it.

Then, I was introduced to these Goody Spin Pins. Cheap as chips for £5.49 from Boots, They hold as much hair as using 20 hair grips and are super easy to use; hold hair up in a bun and then twist the pins in on alternate sides of the bun to hold into place!




My favourite thing about these little beauties is that they don't pull out any hair. I used to tie my hair in a messy bun with a bobble but that caused loads of breakage - I actually moulted. 

You can also use them to just pin half your hair up or for securing hair from falling out of a side plait - so versatile!





I always keep a set in my bag so I can use them at any moment, genuinely cannot go a day without them!

Any tricks you have for keeping hair in place? Let me know below!
