June 12, 2013
How is it possible to do something as simple as putting a bobby pin in your hair incorrectly? Well, chances are you’ve been wearing them the wrong way your entire life.

The ribbed side is designed to grip hair and flat side is meant to push hair down and hold it into the grooves. This method also allows the bobby pin to hold more hair. So if you are wearing a bobby pin bumpy side up, it completely defeats the purpose! Will you start wearing your bobby pins with the grooved side down or will you stick with the usual technique?
