blogger said, "My secret to creating a no fuss bun? The Spin Pin from Goody. Its only a couple of dollars at the drugstore and it makes creating a bun easy breezy. Wrap your hair into a bun and then simply twist the pins into the bun like a screw. No elastic or anything else needed – and it totally stays in place. Its my new favorite beauty accessory."
I love the idea of doing this to my hair, but I have two problems: 1, what the heck do you do in step 5? Seriously, what? and 2, I really don't understand how to work bobby pins. This is why I'm afraid that I'll show up to my friend's wedding with my hair in a ponytail because I don't know what else I can do with it.
