Bobby pins are one of the most helpful things you can ever have in your styling stash but never get enough credit. More likely than not, you’ll buy a pack of 100+ pins and will most likely lose them within a few days because they seem so insignificant but that’s not the case at all. They have so many different uses and we’re going to give you a few that will want to make you take care of them a whole lot better.

They can really keep your hair in place. Yes, we know that’s what they’re for but sometimes if your hair is too slick or you went overboard with the argan oil, bobby pins can be useless as the hair is more likely to slip. If this happens to you way too often, try opening up the bobby pin and spraying it with some extra hold hairspray. It’ll help to stick to the hair while keeping it in place all day long.

As a nail art dotting pen. If you’re a fan of scrolling endlessly through Pinterest trying to find fun designs to try, you know that there is more than likely a dotting pen involved. Luckily for you, opening up a bobby pin instantly transforms into a dotting tool.

They make cool hair accessories. Now that the cooler weather is here, it’s difficult to get some color into your wardrobe. Dipping a few bobby pins in metallic or bold nail polish is a great way to add a little more life into your daily looks.
