What is a bobby pin crown?
A bobby pin crown is a hair accessory made out of bobby pins that resembles a small crown. It is a simple, yet elegant hairstyle that can be worn on various occasions.
What you’ll need
To make a bobby pin crown, you’ll need approximately 15-20 bobby pins and a hair tie. You can choose bobby pins that match your hair color or go for a contrasting color to create a statement.
Start by brushing your hair and gathering it into a ponytail at the top of your head. Secure the ponytail with a hair tie.
Take your first bobby pin and slide it into your hair at a slight angle, with the flat side facing your scalp. This will create the base of your bobby pin crown.
Repeat the process with other bobby pins, sliding them into your hair next to each other to create the desired shape of the crown.
As you add more bobby pins, you can start layering them on top of each other to add height to the crown. Make sure to alternate between inserting the bobby pins at a slight angle and inserting them straight up for a full effect.
Once you are happy with the shape and height of your bobby pin crown, you can finish it off by using a few bobby pins to secure the shape and hold it in place.
Ways to style a bobby pin crown
There are various ways to incorporate a bobby pin crown into your hairstyle. You can wear it with your hair down or with a low bun for a chic look. It is also a great accessory to wear with a half-up, half-down hairstyle or a messy bun for a more casual look.
Tips for wearing a bobby pin crown
For a more secure hold, you can start by spraying some hairspray on the bobby pins before inserting them into your hair. This will prevent them from slipping out throughout the day.
When wearing a bobby pin crown, make sure to place it on your head in a way that is comfortable for you. You may need to adjust the placement of the bobby pins for a more secure hold or to create the desired shape.
Finally, have fun with your bobby pin crown and experiment with different colors and shapes to find the one that suits you best!
