Hi, all,

I saw a commercial today for Goody's Spin Pins.  Has anyone tried these yet?  Do they actually work as well as advertised?

Saw the commercial last night - they do look interesting.

I'll be on the lookout for them - another hair toy for the collection Wink

Well, I went to the store today and found the spinpins.  They come in a set of two.  For a regular bun, you're supposed to use them both -- one placed from the top of the bun and one from the bottom.  The packaging also suggests a (vertical) double-bun style where you use one pin per bun.  Just to play around, I put my hair up in two little buns.  The pins are holding pretty well, so far.  I can see this being a good option for when I want to wear one of my Geisha Hairsticks or my Japanese hairpin without extraneous pins.

Nice job!  Thanks for the review!
Are they easy to use?  Do they tear or pull or your hair?

They are actually really easy to put in your hair... just twist in in a clockwise direction.

The ends are coated in the same suff as regular bobby pins, so they don't pull or tear. 

For me, the hardest part was taking them out.  I had trouble getting hold of the pin to start spinning it counterclockwise.  Once I got it started, though, it came out easily.

I found them at Walmart and thought they looked very smooth and not likely to damage your hair.  I didn't buy them, though, because my hair is very fine and the pins would show.  I wish Goody made a smaller version.

Here's a picture of the spin pins.  I used one for each bun.  No elastic needed!  Smiley

Saw these in the store today and I don't think they would work for me. Like Mel, I have extremely fine hair and the pins would be too big. Well, that and I'd have to use the blonde set instead of the brunette since I'm a caramel.

Looks like I'll have to stick with conventional bobby pins...which is ok since I only need 2-3 for a bun anyway. Roll Eyes
