I found the Goody Spin Pins by accident and I was looking at them thinking, "Who are they kidding with this? Two little screws?" But I bought it, of course I bought it, because I always end up buying anything that promises to pull the reins in on my disobedient hair. These little wonders proved to be some of the best things I ever purchased!

The Spin Pins like like two stiff screws that you twist into the top and bottom of your bun. They don't look like much, but I find that they hold all day. Even the thickest and longest hair will stay up with just two little pins. You don't feel them and they blend in so well with the hair that it looks like your bun is being held up by air alone. These are wonderful for creating the messy bun look that's so popular now--a great boon to someone like me who's all thumbs! You don't even need a mirror. Just a few twists and you're out the door. These could replace a lot of accessories I spent way too much money on!

Yes, it is true... the Goody Spin Pins actually do work. Indeed, two Goody Spin Pins are capable of holding up your hair bun. I was skeptical when I first saw the commercial for these. However, the thought of them actually working was so attractive that I could not resist- I knew I had to by myself a pair and see for myself. All you have to do is twist your hair into a bun, tuck the ends underneath, then screw one spin pin from the top of the bun to your  head, and screw another just the same way only on the bottom of the bun. If your hair is all one length, this should probably be no problem for you. However, if you are like me and have a layered haircit. you might experience some difficulties. Due to the various lengths in my hair, it is hard getting the ends to tuck in underneath and I have not been able to acheive a cute messy bun. So although I can get the spin pins to hold a bun in my hair, I rarely get a result that I am satisfied with. However, for bumming it around the house, doing chores, these are convenient to use to keep your hair out of your face. Oh, and in case you're wondering. No, they do not rip your hair out!

Crazy hair no more!

By

Comments about Goody Simple Styles Spin Pin:

I have long, thick, unbelievably curly hair. I've tried headbands, ponytail holders, large bobby pins, small bobby pins, I've used it all! I was skeptic when first purchasing these Goody Simple Styles Spin Pin, but was surprised when it worked! Not only did it work, it grabbed a hold of my hair and would not release one strand. Getting it out also wasn't easy, but totally worth it!

Didn't work for me

By 

from USA

Comments about Goody Simple Styles Spin Pin:

I had high hopes for this product after watching several Youtube tutorials; they looked easy enough to use and I had hoped they'd be able to keep my hair in place.

For reference, I have very straight thick hair. I tried using these to hold a bun in place, and the pins just kept slipping out. I even tried doubling up, putting 4 pins in; still no luck.

They are easy to use, but if you have thick hair, they might not work.

Well worth the money

Comments about Goody Simple Styles Spin Pin:

About a year ago I was talking with a friend and noticed she had some spin pins. My automatic response was to ask her if they were worth it and immediately she said yes. After that, I knew I had to try them. So I headed over to walmart and picked myself up a pair of the long, brown Spin Pins and took them home to try them out. When I finally got to using them I realized how wonderful they are! they keep your hair in whatever kind of bun you want to style it and it stays sturdy and firm. I've been using my spin pins for a little over a year now and I love them more every time I use them. They are durable and long-lasting and really get the job done. Highly recommended!

Okay for Buns, Not much else

By 

from Bethesda, MD

Comments about Goody Simple Styles Spin Pin:

I am torn on the Goody Spin Pins. When I first got them I followed the directions and was able to put my hair up into a bun pretty easily. However for some reason I can not duplicate this look on further attempts. I think it might be because my hair is layered some and it is hard to get the pins to hold all of my hair. The buns I am able to create are of the loose, messy variety. I would be afraid to go out in public with this look as the pins don't seem very secure. Also they were kind of expensive and I would be afraid to lose one as that would mean having to buy a whole new set.

Another reason for the low rating is that it seems that these pins can only be used for buns. I didn't realize that before purchasing and was expecting to be able to use them for other styles as well. I guess that is my fault, but just wanted to make others aware as well. On the plus side they are easy to remove and seem like they would cause less damage to your hair than rubber bands.

Good good Goody!

Comments about Goody Simple Styles Spin Pin:

Theres a first time for everything. As always, I spend countless hours on the internet. Watching Hair video after hair video. This time, one particular video grabbed my attention. It was the Goody Spin Pin. I thought that it couldnt possibly be exactly like the video said it was. In my eyes, it looked like it would hurt or break my hair off. That is the last thing any girl wants to happen to her hair. But I still felt the urge to give it a try. So I did. The moment it arrived in the mail(which was today) I opened it and wrapped half of my hair up into a bun. I twisted the pin into thr top of my bun and surprise surprise surprise! Its wonderful! I dint even feel it. The only thing that i did feel to convince me that it was actually in my hair was my bun staying in place. When I removed them, I felt nothing! Which is wonderful because I have thick wavy hair and removing clips usually leaves me with a handful of broken hairs and snags. I absolutely love these pins. They should declare the person who invented these things a God!

Goody Spin Pin works with various hair textures.

Comments about Goody Simple Styles Spin Pin:

Goody Simple Styles Spin Pin: BrunetteI recently tried the Goody Simple Styles Spin Pin for brunette hair after seeing a video of it working fairly well in kinky hair. The television commercial always showed straight hair and since too much blow-drying and flat-ironing can do extensive damage to kinky hair because of the lack of moisture I was initially worried about this product since I assumed it would only be effective in straight hair. However, all though the woman in the video hair type was higher than my own ( I believe she was 4B while I’m 4E) I still gave it a shot.I used it to do two quick buns on the side of my head to help get my hair out of the way so I could get dressed after washing my hair. The first thing I noticed it that it puts little to no stress on my hair that would have caused tension on my temples. I’ve also used it for quick pinups after my hair finished air drying and I noticed that it holds fairly well. It is very effective and will not snag in kinky hair as long as the pins are twisted in the opposite direction of how they were twisted in when pulling them out.        I did, however, find them difficult to use when my hair was straight. I assume it may be because my hair is fairly thin when straight and it seemed that whenever I would roll up my hair like the instructions on the box stated to make a bun that my hair style would always become unraveled. My hair length when straightened is bra length but my hair is not an even length all around with my hair making a slight V so the unevenness may impact how well the bun holds, or I could just need more practice using the pins. I am still pleased with this product and it is very helpful when pinning up my hair for drying purposes or just a quick pin up style for whatever way I wear my hair whether kinky, curly, wavy or straight. I just find it more difficult to use only when my hair is straight.

easy and neat

Comments about Goody Simple Styles Spin Pin:

I hate doing my hair, I don't have the time, the patience, or the desire. I would rather throw it up in a bun or a ponytail just to get it out of the way. But I love my long hair. It is very fine, and when I use elastics it is usually either too tight or too loose, and I must admit, sometimes looks a little sloppy :)

Additionally, I am not an adornment type of girl, I don't want sparky barrettes or fluffy tiebacks. I want simple. I want clean. I want effortless. The Goody Simple Styles Spin Pin fits the bill.

The Goody Simple Styles Spin Pins are easy to use, you just twist your hair into a bun and twist these little spring-like metal holders in for an easy, elegant bun where you do not see what's holding it together, and does not require a million bobby pins. The Goody Simple Styles Spin Pins hold a bun in place, but not too tightly where you can feel your hairs individually springing out at the roots. They were comfortable and I was able to easily use them successfully on the first try.

not for fine hair

By 

from Saint Paul, MN

Comments about Goody Simple Styles Spin Pin:

I have fine hair. it is not really too thin, and it has a little natural curl. I have to fix my hair when it is wet, use a ponytail holder, and even then these do not usully hold my hair all day. I do think they are a good concept, but they do not work well for me.

I LOVE Goody Simple Styles Spin Pin

By 

from Valparaiso, IN

Comments about Goody Simple Styles Spin Pin:

These are the first type of hair pins that actually work the way they are supposed to.  I use them for buns and they work wonderfully.  It can be difficult to get them into my hair sometimes and I have really thin hair so I have to make sure I have some mousse in my hair.  However, they work wonderfully and are a great way to have a sophisticated hairstyle very easy.  I like to use it for when I am going to business functions and it is an elegant hairdo.  I do usually end up using individual bobby pins when I use these, but I think that is because of my thin hair and I could never do a hairstyle like this witn just bobby pins.  Overall, it takes some practice to get used to doing this and using these, but once you get the right type of practice, it becomes easy to get your hair up in them.  I have only tried the one style though with the one bun, and I don't know how the other styles work.  They seemed more complicated so I would suggest trying the individual bun first.

How did I ever make a bun before Goody spin pins???

By 

from Tulsa, OK

Comments about Goody Simple Styles Spin Pin:

I first saw the Goody Spin Pins advertized online and was immediately intrigued. How on Earth could two funny shaped pins do the work of TWENTY bobby pins??? I waited patiently for these to come out last year and was greatly rewarded for my wait! I have incredibly thick hair - and a lot of it as well. It is insane how fast I put my hair up with these and am out the door. These pins screw into the bun and hold it tight all day long. The spin pins keep your hair very close to your head so there is no pulling, which has reduced the number of headaches for me. My hair is a dark dirty blonde and I used the brunette colored pins and they blend quite nicely with my darkest blonde. I should mention that these pins are tough! I have stepped on these, sat on them, set books on them and they are still as good as new. I cannot even think of a downside to these. They are extremely affordable at around six bucks if you think about how many bobby pins you lose!
