Have you heard of spin pins? These spiral-shaped hair accessories do the work of 20 bobby pins! They make getting that bun, updo, and all kinds of twists easier than ever before. Style long, layered, and curly hair into messy buns or a fancy twisted updo in a jiff! Still not convinced?
The first hairstyle to try is a bun. Simply gather hair, twist it into a bun, and spin one in from the top and another from below, making sure that the pins don’t bump into each other. Don’t just wear the bun in the usual place, try them up high in a topknot or to one side, like above.
After you get the hang of various bun hairstyles, there are so many more to try! Spin pins are also excellent for securing braided hairstyles.

Another version of the spin pin goes by the name Magic Scroo. It’s cheaper than the Goody versions but can be easier to find because thye tend to sell out. They are smaller so perfect for smaller buns or more intricate hairstyles like the one above. These are best for ladies with brown of black hair because they only come in black. That being said, at just $3.97 for 10 pins, this is a great way to get try out the product at a little price. Goody also makes mini spin pins in light and dark colors.
They are available at Target or from Amazon if they’re sold out in stores, which happens a lot! Be sure to purchase the color that is closest to your hair to keep these magic pins invisible. Check out these 21 cute and easy hairstyles with spin pins.
