How to Get the Perfect Bun

February 7, 2011 | By | Comments (0)

A simple, chic bun is one of my favorite quick hairstyles. Whether you have straight, thick, curly, or fine hair, this is a great way to switch up your look. My only issue is getting it to stay all day! I recently found a solution that I couldn’t keep secret.

I rarely try hair gimmicks or tricks that seem so easy to do but end up a mess at home. Then, about a month ago, I was attending a wedding and I wanted to wear my hair in a low bun. The back of my dress had these beautiful knots, so I wanted to show it off rather than cover it up with my hair. All the bobby pins in the world were not getting me the look I wanted. The only thing I could find to work were clunky claws or clips, which looked too obvious. Then I discovered…


The Goody Spin Pin


Spin Pin[1] Simple Styles Look Book[4]

To buy: $6, 

These little swirly pins kept my bun in through lots of dancing (the DJ had to instruct us to sit down for the main course). It was the true test! They blended in with my hair–the pins also come in a lighter shade for blondes–so no one even noticed them. I am so in love with mine, I even keep them in my purse just in case I want to put my hair up midday.


They are incredibly easy to use and come with the mini diagram above, as well as suggestions for other bun styles. I definitely suggest putting the Goody Spin Pins through your ultimate bun test!


Tell me what you think after using them, or share your solutions for a simple stay-put bun. Can’t wait to hear your thoughts!
