You know that girl in high school that could always do her hair in the perfect bun/up do? I was not that girl. I am not gifted at styling my hair, nor do I want to invest time in becoming gifted at such things. Instead, I prefer to have long hair and be perpetually annoyed and putting it in a ponytail. Enter the spiral bobby pins. They are great for throwing your hair up in a bun and making you look like you have your life together. I keep them in every purse.
