What does it claim? That two spin pins can do the work of a handful of bobby pins when it comes to holding up a hair bun,plus it's a lot easier

Who tested it?Virginia Beach resident Kelsey Garletts

What are the instructions? They're pretty simple. The first thing you need to do is gather your hair at the nape of your neck. No ponytail holder is needed. Just twist your hair into a tight bun and tuck in the ends. Now all you have to do is spin one pin in clockwise from the top and the other up from the base. Take care not to interlock the pins. Once the pins are in you're good to go with your hair bun in place. When you're ready to take your bun down just spin your pin counter clockwise to release the style. If you want to make sure your hold is really secure. Be sure to twist your first spin pin deep into your updo catching the hair against your head.

Did it work? Our tester was pretty impressed. She has a lot of hair and usually needsa handful of bobby pins to put it up in a bun. Just two spin pins did the job and felt even more secure than all those bobby pins.
