Review & Styling: Goody Simple Styles Spin Pin

Goody Simple Styles Spin Pin

Despite feeling comfortable picking up any beauty product and experimenting, when it comes to hair, I'm out of my element. If I'm not navigating the basic hair tie or bobby pin, I'm lost. So, when I received Goody Simply Style Spin Pin from Influenster, I was a little nervous to see if I could get these to work. Luckily, like so many commercial hair tools, these are made fool-proof.

Two pins are included in one pack ($7.29) and are supposedly all you need to get a bun to stay in place (besides a hair tie). Even though I only use 3-4 bobby pins for a given bun, I was still convinced that two pins- one in the top, and one in the bottom - wouldn't be enough to hold even my fine hair. It turns out my hair might be a little too fine to use these. To get a beefy bun to begin with, I have to tease my hair within an inch of its life. These pins need something substantial to twist into so when it encounters the cotton-candy like structure on my head, it doesn't know what to do. After working with it some and figuring out that I could only partially tease my hair, these ended up going in smoothly. But it definitely goes to show that these might not be right for those with very thin or fine hair.

Despite initially encountering some difficulty, I figured things out and really like how secure just two of these pins keep your hair. While I don't necessarily think their efficacy justifies the price tag, I have to remind myself that these could replace the packs of bobby pins I lose to the bottom of my purse and vacuum cleaners. I just have to keep track of them.
