Bobby Pinning Tips

1. Get A Lift.  Use a row of bobby pins to sweep hair off of the face, opening up the eyes, cheekbones and jawline.  “Pinning hair in the right spot can really give features definition and lift,”

2. Tame the Bangs. Subdue errant strands with a bold row of bobbies.

3. Make a Bobby Band.  Pull hair back and secure it headband style by criss-crossing interlocking bobby pins from ear to ear. 

4. Get Crafty. Use your favorite nail polish to transform dull brown pins with chic shades of tangerine, fuchsia or turquoise. Whip out the glue stick and apply glitter or tiny colored stones.  Let your pins express the real you!

5. Half and Half.  Set hair on small rollers or a tiny curling iron to create massive, explosive texture.  Then add contrast by smoothing one side or the top of the hair with Redken Water Wax 03, and secure with a row of bobby pins.

6. Get Set.  Apply Redken Aerate 08 to damp hair, wind small sections into pincurls and secure with bobby pins.  Set the entire head.  At the end of the day, remove the pins and voila!  Large, firm, loopy, lovely curls!

Look 1: Simple Chic

Get The Look 
Shampoo and condition with Fresh Curls

Towel-dry hair (blot gently, don’t rub) and apply Soft Spin 05 curl-enhancing gel. Blow-dry using a diffuser, scrunching hair with your fingers to bring out curls.

Slip your headband over your head, letting it hang around your neck for now.

Gather hair into a low ponytail and twist into a bun. Bobby-pin in place. Don’t worry if pieces come loose – you want a slightly messy look.

Slip your headband up into place, and mist on Workforce 09 flexible volumizing spray for humidity resistance and control.
