It seems that the most simple tools can create a perfect hairstyle. I'd like to take a moment to appreciate the simple bobby pin.

We all have them. Tucked in drawers, stuck in our vacuum and marking our territory on our counters and night stands. It's one of the easiest tools to use. If you ever wondered how to use them.... Wonder no more - we have 10 easy-peasy ways to use and store these bad boys!

Your vacuum, nightstand and bathroom counter will thank you. You also won't have to keep going around your house trying to collect them when you're needing a quick hairstyle because they will all be there ready to go when you are!

2. Spray hairspray or dry shampoo on bobby pins to help secure in thin hair.
