How-To: The Triangle Bobby Pins

My favourite part about the whole blogging thing? The community you get to develop along the way. My sweet friend Heidi recently photographed a few hair tutorials that my darling Aylin developed. Having my hair played with was the very best way to spend a cold winter morning. I’ve asked Aylin to take over today to share a few of her steps for achieving this look on your own.

I think most of you can relate when I say I typically have a small stash in my purse, my back pocket, my nightstand… what have you. Hair emergencies are real! The not knowing what to do with our mop can be challenging, but I love playing around with unique ways of changing things up. Today’s hairstyle is inspired by those emergency bobby pins.

3 Bobby pins
