1. Spray dry shampoo or texture spray on your bobby pins before insertion to prevent slippage. Sometimes short hair slips out of bobby pins more easily than longer hair does, so to keep your strands in place, spritz a dry texture spray, like Oribe Dry Texture Spray, on the inside of the bobby pin to give it a little more grip.
Pin your bangs with one bobby pin, pushing the open end toward the ceiling. Complete the “V” shape by sliding one leg of another bobby pin at a downward angle through the looped end of the first pin. Repeat as many times as you’d like to get the look you want.
2. Keep a cold cream in your bag in case you need to tame your tresses on the go. One like Nivea’s Creme in a travel-size tin fits perfectly in any clutch and can be used to fix flyaways or frizz if your hair wigs out when it’s humid.
3. Not all hair textures are suited for all hairstyles and cuts. For example, if you have super-fine hair, you might fare better with a pixie because it will create the illusion that you have thicker hair, and if you have a slight wave to your hair, layered and one-length cuts may work better, since wavy hair tends to hang a bit looser and longer (compared to curly hair that coils up).
