A New Twist On A Classic Accessory

A New Twist on a Classic Accessory #BobbyPins #SallyBeauty

Bobby pins first became widely used in the 1920′s (then called bobbing pins) to hold the new bobbed hairstyles of the time. Since then, they have become one of the most common hair accessories – a staple for any woman.

These days, the classic accessory may be used as the focus of a hairstyle, rather than hiding away, secretly holding hair in place. Here are some of our favorite ways to pile them up, use our super fun colorful pins and other new twists for this classic accessory.

The Half-up Triangle

TRIANGLE

HOW TO :

1. Pull half of your hair back in two sections and hold with the side of your hand.
2. Place one bobby pin in horizontally where your hair overlaps, then place one at an angle to hold the side in place.
3. Repeat angled pin placement on opposite side to hold in place and complete the look.

Pro Tip: You have to have thick hair to pull off this look!

 

Add Color To Your Braid

BRAID

HOW TO :

1. Create a braid.
2. Place bobby pins where you have bumps or short hairs sticking out.
If you are lucky enough to have a perfect braid with no escapee hair or accidental bumps – go to town placing pins at your will for a fun color accent.

Pro Tip: A great way to hold back shorter layers!

 

Chevron Pull Back

CHEVRON

HOW TO :

1. Insert one bobby pin at an angle then place another other pin through the hoop at the end creating a secure “V”.
2. Repeat the steps at least three times to create a chevron design.

Pro Tip: This design looks great with hair pulled back in a low pony tail or bun. Also a great trick to secure long bangs from face!

 

Happy bobby pinning,

Second Day Hair

Oh second day hair! How we love you!

No, not really.

After you’ve slept on an awesome style or blow-out, you usually wake-up looking a little flat. Luckily, we have a little miracle product in the form of dry shampoo. Whatever did we do before its invention?

You can revive your hair instantly with So Gorgeous Volumizing Dry Shampoo, which combats dirt and oil, and helps add a little texture and lift to strands. Plus, rocking a voluminous ponytail is the perfect solution for less-than-clean bed head.

Here’s how to style second day hair:

  • Spray dry shampoo on the roots in all your problem areas. Let dry and blend with your fingertips or brush.
  • Use a teasing comb to add volume to the crown, while spraying short bursts of our So Gorgeous Shaping Spray to help hold the tease
  • Using a brush, gently smooth out and create your pony tail
  • Finish the style with a light misting of So Gorgeous Shaping Spray
