If you’re anything like us when you put your hair up with bobby pins you look like a million dollars. Then you catch a glimpse of the back and what you really look like is a million bobby pins. If you can relate, then get excited because exposed bobby pins are the new hair accessory! Whether you’re an expert at hiding those pins or not, it’s time to show them off because bobby pins aren’t just for functionality purposes. Grab your everyday bobby pins, or even paint your own and add some flair to your hair.

When this visible bobby pin trend emerged the first and only person I thought of was my best friend, which I’m sure was the case for most of you. But it has a different meaning between us, fighting over bobby pins and arguing which one belongs to who became an inside joke over years. As we started calling each other the “bobby pin bitch” it became the symbol of our bond, in a way. Actually two days ago we were talking about a bobby pin tattoo I saw on pinterest and if we should have it done or not. To sum up, every girl with some hair knows how sacred a bobby pin can be, especially if you have those 2cm hairs on your nape finding an abandoned bobby pin inside your bag suddenly is the best feeling in the world. Though I never imagined using it as an accessory, in my mind they have to be as invisible as they can be. That is until I saw that triangle thing. Why didn’t I think of that?
