In the past, bobby pins were discreetly tucked away to keep your look in place, but lately they've taken center stage. The bobby pin-as-accessory trend first caught our attention a few years ago when Rihanna donned the American Music Awards look. It was one of those typical RiRi moments where you thought "only she can rock that and get away with it." Fast forward to now and pretty much everyone pins and eliminates the bobby pin trend.

Pin Up And Slay Your Bad Hair Day With The Bobby Pin Trend

Rihanna started the exposed bobby pin trend

I’m not going to front, when I first saw Rihanna put her bobby pins out and open in the public, I was a little skeptical.  Around the way, we call that a doobie- a protective style Dominicans wrapped your hair in after it was washed and set in the salon. Normally you wouldn’t rock it anywhere beyond  your trip home but there was Rihanna, on the red carpet and center stage accepting her iconic award in the look.  I didn’t think the look was for me or anyone for that matter but now it’s pretty much everywhere and I LOVE IT!  I tell you, Ursula Stephen (Celebrity hairdresser to bad girls like Rihanna) is a genius.

Playing with the bobby pins of different colors and finishes makes it less basic than the regular old bobby pins.

This fully exposed hairpin is not just for parties or dressy moments. I also wore the hairpin look to spruce up my ponytail and help cover up bad hair days. Between you and me, it saved my life and it kind of became my destination.

Try out the look with your set of bobby pins. You can use as little or as much as you want. As you can see, the first time I tried the trend I was modest with the bobby pin. After getting into the look and starting to wear it more often, I went a bit more HAM. It really is a great way to try something fresh and cool with your style, not to mention that these are probably the cheapest trends of all time.
