Whether your hair is long or short, hairpins are great accessories that can be used to create a beautiful sense of personal style. Hairpins come in a variety of colors and are usually about few inches in length. They allow you to pin a lock of hair in place. Hairpins can also be used with any texture of hair, fine or thick.
For a casual look, you can use plain bobby pins or ones decorative beads or stones. Part your hair in the middle. Then pull back hair from one side and insert a hairpin in place. Repeat for the other side. Another way to pin your hair is to pull strands of hair from the front and center. Twist the hair at the top and push down while you insert two hairpins to hold it firmly in place.
For special occasions such as weddings and proms, hairpins can be used for all kinds of up-dos. For a simple and elegant bun, tie your hair into a ponytail. Twist the ponytail and wrap around itself. Then take the hairpins and insert it under and around the bun, taking care to hide the pin from sight. With decorative pins, insert so that the ornamented ends of the pin protrude from the bun.
