Check out these life-changing clever hair pin hacks here.


1. Right Way To Use Clips

In order to get the correct grip on the hair with the hair pin, keep the wavy side of the pin against your head. The straight side may not grip as well as the wavy, more textured side. Mostly, all of us have been using hair pin the wrong way, throughout our life.


2. How To Prevent Slippage

Most of them observe slippage of hair pins, which is because the hair pin may not have enough grip to hold on to the hair tightly. In order to avoid slippage, spray some hairspray on the hair pins before using them. Spraying dry shampoo or spray can help to hold the grip and prevent slippage.


3. Add Design To Your Hair

Pull a small section of your hair from both the sides and cross them. Now, holding the hair in place, take a hair clip and slide it through. Take another hair clip and slide it upwards at a diagonal angle and repeat this with another clip to get a cool new design of your own with the use of hair pins. A must try hair pin hack!


4. Make A Headband Of Ponytail

Instead of using rubber bands on the ponytail, make your own hair band. After you have tied your ponytail, take a small section of the ponytail and wrap it around the base. Now secure it to the loose ends and fix it by inserting the hair pin. Voilà!!


5. Add Height To Your Ponytail

If you want your ponytail to look long and tall, take the help of hair pins. Once you are done with the ponytail, take two or three hair grips on the lower half of the headband. Now, fluff your ponytail and flip it over to get the complete look.


6. Use Hair Pins To Make Your Curls Last Longer

After you are done with curling your tresses, open them and roll them again to secure with the hair pin. Once you are done pinning all of the strands of hair, wait for sometime. Now, take out the pin and apply some hair spray. This technique will help to make your curls last longer.


7. Tie The Split Ends With The Help Of A Hair Pin

Once you are done with the braids, tie your split ends with the help of a hairpin to look chic and stylish. Tie the ends of your plait into a knot, and then slide a hair pin in an upward direction into the knot to secure it tightly. And you are done!


8. Chevron Chic

Another most common and popular design that you could try with a bobby pin is the Chevron pattern. Slide one hairpin in at a slant, with the open end facing upwards, and then slide the second pin through the first one and then pushing it downward to create an arrow shape. Do this as many times as possible to perfect the style.
