I suspect that this pin is probably a refinement of hair pins our grandmothers or great grandmothers would have recognized. It is the easiest way I have found to create a bun without using a gazillion bobby pins.

This is a tear drop shaped pin with a small curve which enables it to rest comfortably against the natural curve of your head. All you do is twist your hair into a bun/chignon and the updo pin holds your hair in place. The ends are rounded so you won't scratch your scalp or tear your hair.

It does take a little practice and experimentation to find the style that's right for you and your hair length etc. I use it daily to tidy my hair for the school run LOL, and with more care for a formal night out style.

A friend has just bought one for her daughter - prom night approaches.....

I picked up one of these from the supermarket yesterday and spent the evening wrestling with it. I have thick, slightly curly hair just below shoulder length and consider myself fairly competent at putting it up. This pin does nothing - it won't stay in my hair and it certainly won't hold it so I don't know exactly what type of hair you need. I'm taking it back today for a refund. I was hoping for a "quick fix" hairdo for when I'm in a hurry.

It works for me!!! 25 Jun. 2010
By Lindz - Published on
Ok, so I was really confused the first time I tried to use this product, simply because the instructions not well written! What works for my hair is to make a bun, and then insert the pin through the bun (not the base like the instructions say), so you will catch the twists in your hair. Then, when the ends are just barely poking out of the top of your bun, then you can flip up the base of the pin while pressing the two prongs against and then down your scalp. You end up with the curved part up and the two prongs pointing down towards your neck and well hidden by your hair. Since my twists are always different, it may take a couple of tries to get just the right one, but I always get a very nice updo that looks elegant, yet only takes under a minute to do! I also like that it STAYS! I actually plan to use this updo for when I get married next month!

It really worked! 17 July 2010
By The Taminator - Published on
I have to go out for the evening tomorrow, and I'm no genius when it comes to hair... I'm not a hairstylist, and I spent the 80s shellacking it into place with Aussie Instant Freeze, often to ridiculous amounts of poofiness. I can do a French twist with a long-tooth plastic comb, but the commercials made these products look so easy and so much better that I wanted to try them.

Just following the written instructions in the box were not enough for me... I was having trouble doing anything other than the ponytail. The Goody website has the same diagrams, and that wasn't helping either. Luckily they have a channel with how-to videos on You Tube. The instructions were much clearer, and watching someone do it was just the thing I needed. Goody really ought to link to the videos on their website, or even do "how to" commercials. I bet it would eliminate a lot of frustration I'm seeing about this and the other Simple Styles products.

Anyway, this smooth brass-tone wire is exactly what it says on the tin. I have thick hair down to my bra strap; your length, cut and texture may cause your mileage to vary. The pictures I've uploaded are my first try after watching the how to video for the French twist, on hair washed and flat-ironed. It feels very secure, but it doesn't pull. It feels like I could easily use a rat-tail comb to pull tendrils if I wanted, and it looks fantastic. I know the folds in the back look so elegant that I don't want to take it down, and I'm sitting here in shorts and a t shirt!

Whether you're going out for the evening or just at home wanting to get your hair off your neck in the summer heat, this little hook will do the trick, and is sturdy enough to last a lifetime. I highly recommend it!

Perfect for a quick style 14 May 2010
By L. Thorner - Published on
I am completely hair do challenged. For my wedding, I wore my hair down because I couldn't find anyone to do my hair and I wasn't going to wear a pony tail (the extent of my "updo" abilities). I bought this today because I wanted to give it a try and I was hoping that it would work. I have a lot of hair but the strands are all really fine, so my hair doesn't typically hold pins really well. And, as I mentioned, I can't do my own hair. But this was so easy to use - you form a bun (idiot-proof), the use the tongs of the pin to pull the base of the bun up, forming a french twist kind of look. Then you push the pin down into the style and it stays put! It literally took me 30 seconds to do. And it looked great! Finally, I can quit spending over $100 to get an updo. Or, I can get a simple updo for a cute date-night hair do change. Thank you Goody!

Actually works! 7 Feb. 2013

So my only complaint here is that instead of sending me the light colored one they sent the dark one. Shipping is so expensive though so I'm not going to bother sending it back.

It does work. My hair is about.....20 inches long. Not only is it thick but it is also very slick!! I was really afraid that even if I did get this to to work it would come down during the day from all the weight of my hair. I was supper happy when it didn't. This product does take a while to get used! It took me about 15 minuets to figure out how to make it work.

For myself, my hair needs to be in a semi-tight bun, From here I inserted the pin, except that instead of starting at the bottom I placed it about half way up the bun for my hair. It looked fabulous and held all day!! Really happy!!

**One thing to note. This will press against the under-curve of your scull (run you hand down your head. Feel where it kind of dips off? That's the area where the pin sets.) If you are prone to headaches make sure it feels comfortable of you may experience some side effects.

It really works!!! LOVE IT!! 13 July 2011
By Donna L. Zoslaw - Published on
I've been trying to find something that will help me to have an easy and professional looking updo. I've purchased so many things, and none of them have worked....until now!! I received the updo pin today, and at first I didn't understand how to use it, and thought it was yet another waste of money as it wasn't holding my hair up. So I went to youtube and watched a short video. [...]
After I watched the video, it took me less than two minutes to create a beautiful French twist!!! I've had it in place all day, and I've been busy doing gardening and running around, and yet my hair still looks perfect!!! LOVE this!!
