A few month’s ago I saw this advert on TV for the product ‘Goody Spin Pins’ and I was instantly intrigued and knew I just HAD to get myself some of these pins. They said ‘now available at Boots’ so the next day I rushed myself to my local Boots store, but no luck :( Over the next few weeks, every time I was near a Boots store I would go in full with excitement only to be disappointed….I couldn’t find them anywhere! Turns out I wasn’t the only girl who had been intrigued by this advert because the Goody Spin Pins were pretty much sold out everywhere in the UK.
So yes after a few weeks of searching the excitement eventually wore off and I’d pretty much forgot all about them until I actually spotted some in Boots accidentally few months later! There they were the Spin Pins right in front of me for only £4.99…..and so the love affair with these pins began ;)
Now some of you might be thinking, what on earth is she going on about?! Well let me tell you about these brilliant pins. Would you like to create simple messy bun’s like this but have always found it too tricky to do?
Well than the Goody Pin Spins are the answers to your prayers!! It’s super easy to twist and style with the Simple Styles Spin Pins. They come in a pack of two (available in shades blonde and brunette) and each pin has the equivalent hold of 20 bobby pins!
These are the Blonde ones! All you need to do is wrap hair around itself into a top knot, bun or romantic side bun. Then simply twist the Spin Pin through the bun to insert, and untwist to remove. It glides smoothly in and out of hair, without snagging or tangling thanks to the double dipped ends. A compact six-layer coil design with the hold of 20 bobby pins, smaller than a lipstick it fits perfectly into make up bags. The flexible tension spiral moves smoothly through all hair types. The Spin Pin adjusts in size for optimum hold in fine to super-thick, straight or curly hair to create free-floating suspension.
Here are the instructions provided on the back of the packet!
I am seriously in love with these pins and have been telling all my friends about them. It’s such a brilliant concept and it works with thin or thick hair and you’ll be amazed how only two pins can hold the bun so tightly all day long! Here is another look I created using the pins..
And to show you how SUPER SIMPLE it is to create this look I have filmed it for you! Here’s my little turorial video :)
