How to Wear Bobby Pins

Meet Your New Favorite Hair Accessory: The Bobby Pin

Bobby pins have long been the tools we use to expertly, and stealthily, keep our hair up. But lately they've been starring in the hair accessory game as accent pieces. Celebrities like Emily Blunt, Katharine McPhee, and Chloë Moretz have been spotted using the hair classic more for their form than function. Emily pushed a single pin into her vintage coif at the Critics' Choice Awards, while Katharine and Chloë stacked a trio of pins each.

Stick to side-swept styles to make sure your hair doesn't look like you forgot to pull out your pin. All three women's bobbies were actually serving a purpose, too, and a wayward pin almost always looks like a mistake. As for colors, let the style dictate which ones you choose. Similar hues to your hair color look classic, like Emily's pinned-back style. For a punchier take on things, try Katharine McPhee's colorful trio. Either way, you'll have a hair accessory that wins in both utility and chicness. And what's better than that?
