How to use U shaped hairpins or How to use big U shaped Hairpin?

People always come to me with this question over and over. These are very simple and easy to use pins. Don’t get puzzled with its shape. It is really useful for us.

When I was a little girl I used to go out with my parents at the party and even in any shop if I saw these pins it makes me puzzled every time. At that time I was too curious to know how women use these pins to tie their long hair as it is unable to fix my short hair.

Yeah! It is funny- These pins are designed to fix Buns and long hair. Although these are not helpful to clip your hair.

  • Use U shaped pins to fix your Bun/Juda. Make your Bun as you want and insert these pins on the sides of the Bun. Make sure it is inserted properly and holding tightly to your hair.

What are Different types of Bobby pins and how to use them?

If anyone asks me about the types of bobby pins, I answer Two. There are two broad categories of the Bobby pins. “Curved Bobby Pin” and another is “Meta Grip”.

Curved bobby pins-

these are the pins works great for subtly pinning your hair in small sections. These are more comfortable as compare to flat, traditional ones. You have to push it with little force. It will go through your hair and will hold it. The grip of these curvey bobby pins is no good. That is why it is a bit looser than the U shaped pins. Curved shape gives it a grip on your hair. It pins and supports your hair from the backside of the head.

Meta grip( also called U shaped bobby pins)-

I already have discussed the use of these U and V-shaped. But I must say these bobby pins are more useful than the Curved one. This is because these pins can hold your hair tight.  And help you to hold it along with your scalp as it names described.

You can make a Simple hairstyle by clipping or pinning it with the help of these Meta grips Bobby pins. Another way is to make Buns/ Juda, whatever you want you can make with the help of these. And I am sure that if once you will use it you will never wonder about the bobby pins.

These are the answers to some of your questions that people used to ask me about Hair sticks/ clips and bobby pins.
