My Kristin Ess french pin has been collecting dust and I am ashamed of it. I finally learned how to use it and seem to fall short in actually using it now. That’s all about to change. To inspire me, I thought I’d share 4 ways to use a hair pin. The Kristin Ess one is perfection, but there’s plenty of others to try which you can shop below.
Since I donated my hair (you can read that post here) I have been actually styling my hair in more fun ways. Like this rope braid tutorial and also adding in some fun clips. But what I have yet to do it on my new short hair is use my hairpin! It’s probably easier, to be honest. So today’s post is designed to get a little fire under my butt to share some shorter styles. But until then, here are 4 really easy ways to use a french hairpin.
4 Ways To Use A French Hair Pin
If you’re a bun lover, you may love this easy to create style. You can do this with all your hair (keep scrolling!) or just do half. I can only do this now on my new short hair, which is still just as fun!
This is hands down my favorite way to wear a french hair pin. It really is so simple and just requires some teasing and a little half twist. If you’re scared to use a hair pin, try this one first!
Twisted Half Up
For long or short hair, this twisted half up is super easy to create. It’s also just dressy enough to be great for an event too! Pop in the Kristin Ess hair pin as the simplest hair accessory.
This classic twist can only really be done on medium to longer length hair. This is the classic twist that those girls in high school would do with just a pencil. I could never, I need a little more product and a true pin!
