The Bumble and Bumble Pin Tin
In the late 1990’s Bumble and Bumble’s editorial stylists made quite the statement on the runways by exposing a hairstylists best kept secret: the pin. This holiday season, Bumble and Bumble is paying “homage to their ground-breaking ingenuity” with their Pin Tin.
The tin includes 50 winter white pins and a fabulous how-to-guide for styling help. The pins are a mix of different sizes. The 3 inch hair pins are best used to support heavy updos, like a low bun. A simple twist or elegant chignon can be tacked down with the 2 inch hair pins that will add the perfect amount of spice to your look.
A bobby pin has two different sides, one wavy and one flat. It can be worn decoratively with either side exposed. These 2.5 inch pins do double duty by holding your look in place while adding a trendy hint of white. The tin also includes a slightly smaller 2 inch bobby pin that is best worn decoratively.It might hold down a few fly-aways, but you are better off to just accessorize with those ones.
As I mentioned before this fabulous tin includes a how-to-guide in addition to the pins. The first look it demonstrates is the “faux wave.” This 50’s inspired style is done simply. Apply product, like Bumble and Bumble’s Texture, onto damp hair. Use a comb to create a deep side part and S-shaped waves around your face. Fasten those waves with your decorative pins. Then use the diffuser attachment on your favorite blow dryer to set the look completely. Finish it off by spritzing your do with some hairspray and off you go! You’ll have to go get the Pin Tin to see the rest of the amazing looks.
So maybe I lied last week when I said I was done adding things to your holiday shopping list, because this one is a definite necessity gift for your fashion forward friends. Don’t worry about where you can pick this great Pin Tin up, the best of downtown Pittsburgh salons, Verve Wellness has plenty for you to give your friends and family!
