bobby pin trick - I had NO idea I was using bobby pins incorrectly. I feel like I just learned that I've been putting my shoes on the wrong feet or wearing my underwear backwards my whole life. That's what I get for not paying attention to these things like all the other girls.
This deserves pinning because it is so awesome. I do this every night on damp hair, scrunch in mouse in the morning and I have never had more perfect curls in my life. My hair usually sucks (more wrinkled and frizzy than curly) and this works amazing. I swear by it.
