Awesome! :) I probably have pin parties in my hair when I use bobby pins because they never seem to stay in. I’d be shocked if my hair stayed up with only one pin!

Hi,
I live in Rome, Italy, so I thought I may help with your bobby pin quest.
I guess you should look for them in places like perfume/cosmetic supplies shops like Sephora or similar chains, and even in supermarkets.If you can find one while strolling around, just go to one of those shops were they sell supplies for salons. You may want to take a sample with you and show it to the salesperson, to make things easier!
They shouldn’t be hard to get ;)

Thanks for sharing <3

Brilliant! Thank you so much! (I’m by no means an expert, but TWENTY PINS? I’m embarrassed if I have to use 8 . . )

It happens. The worst thing about uberpinning is when you think you’ve got them all out, then start shedding pins in the shower.
Off to Daven’s blog I go, thank you!

I love it! I think I conquered the one pin style as a teen, but I want those curved pins! and how to create that pony with thinner hair….the pin always sticks out the other side :( But who knew that twisting the end of the wrap part would help hold it? He’s a genius!
