The Goody Spin Pins are unfortunately handy. I didn’t believe they were going to work and since they were expensive, ($5.99 for two twisted pieces of metal? Lame!) I figured I would regret the purchase. It turns out that I really, really like the functionality of these pins. They are easy to use – 1. Twist your hair into a bun, 2. Twist in the two pins (if you do not use both – one pin will not hold your hair in place), 3. Finish the look with a headband, hair spray or cute pin the front. To remove the pins, twist them the opposite way, gently and slowly.
*Just a note: You will probably not enjoy this product if you are not the type of person who likes a messy/carefree look. Also, I think that it works much better for people with medium – thick hair. Honestly, it seems like the spin pins would not hold very fine hair in place.
Although I enjoy this product it is honestly not worth the money. Regular bobby pins are quite cheap and can do the same trick (you might just need more than two, which is fine because they are easy to come by and inexpensive). Additionally, the spin pins will be useless if you happen to lose one of them — which is likely because it is practically just a twisted bobby pin. I don’t know about you but I leave regular bobby pins everywhere and I also dispose of them after 1-2 uses. I am trying to keep the Spin pins in a place where I will not lose or bend them out of shape. If they were more reasonably priced I might not care as much but I definitely would not repurchase.
