I received a press release last week about Goody Spin Pin and it reminded me to go out and buy it. Apparently the Goody Spin Pin has sold out across the UK thanks to a successful TV ad campaign. Keep on reading to see my (debut!) video demonstration and a few pictures of the buns I've been making with the pins.
I've never had any success with hair buns because my hair is abnormally thick and straight so I've been meaning to try Goody Spin Pin ever since I heard about it last year.
The instructions are really simple - just spin the two spiral pins into your hair and you'll end up with a nice, secure bun - no hair bands or other pins required.
To show you how the pins work, I thought it'd be easier to record this video. I've never filmed a video of myself before (my facial expressions make me cringe) and it turns out I had my camera on some rubbish recording resolution so the video is quite blurry *sigh*.
Here are a couple of photos of the buns I've made using Goody Spin Pin - a standard centre bun and a side bun thrown in for good measure. These buns are quite loose but you can create neat ones too.
In the UK, Goody Spin Pin is available from Boots, Superdrug and Claire's Accessories for around £4.95. In the US, I bought it from Duane Reade for $7.
Update (16th October 2011): I found out that Goody Spin Pin is also perfect for creating tousled, beachy waves - read my post here!
