Show off your bobby pins

The accessory: Far more than a simple tool for pinning your hair back, the bobby pin can be worn as a statement piece.

The styling: If you want to draw attention to your beautiful bobby pins, a sleek hairstyle will provide the perfect base.

What the editors say: If you have difficulty controlling your flyaways, even with the help of a bobby pin or two, use a frizz-taming hairspray like Fix Anti-Frizz from Tecni.ART which protects against humidity and static.

The art of discretion

The accessory: Given the right technique, no-one needs to know you're wearing bobby pins. You can use them to create truly gravity-defying looks, such as an extra-high ponytail or a retro bouffant, for example.

The styling: Choose a bobby pin that matches the color of your hair as closely as possible, slide it over the scalp and cover with a section of hair for an invisible result.

What the editors say: If you are using your bobby pins to support a voluminous look, it helps to use a styling product like the Savage Panache hairspray from the Wild Stylers collection. It will support your volume and give you the texture necessary for your bobby pins to hold the hair in place.
