Hair clips and bobby pins are so uso right now. You see women wearing these hair accessories in different shapes and sizes. Even bobby pins are being given more attention.

Prep hair

Wash your hair with DOVE Intense Repair Shampoo and DOVE Intense Repair Conditioner to help repair damaged strands while making your hair smooth and manageable. 



Protect from heat

Spritz TONI&GUY Heat Protection Mist on your hair to guard it against damage from heated styling tools. 



Divide and conquer

Divide your hair into two horizontal sections. Gather the top section and clip it so you can work on the lower section first in the next step. 


Go straight

Straighten the lower section of your hair using a flat iron. Work on your hair one small section at a time. Comb your hair as you iron to make your hair smooth and tangle-free. Continue until all sections of your hair have been straightened. 


Time to spray!

Spritz TRESemmé Salon Finish Extra Hold Hairspray on your bobby pins to give them extra grip. This way, you’ll keep your bobby pins in place when you put them on your hair.


Pin it!

Start putting a bobby pin at eye level on one side of your hair. Put the next pin, letting it cross over the first one. Create Xs as you place the bobby pins on your hair. 


Just keep pinning

Continue placing bobby pins and creating Xs with them from one side of your hair, going through the back, and all the way to the other side.
