I have ridiculously fine hair (which I don’t love), but it’s also nice and silky, (which I totally love). Most of the time when working from home (obvs no hijab), I like to wear it down, but want it off my face.

Quick fix – kirby grips/ bobby pins…

… BUT they slip out of my fine, but silky hair so easily. Not so great.


Here’s my little hack.

Spray the pins with hairspray before you place them in the hair.

It gives a bit of friction and makes sure the pins hold for much longer, without making your hair crunchy with hairspray or heavy with a lot of texturising product. It keeps pins in my hair for most of the day, until I remove the pins, or mess it up myself by throwing a scarf over it for prayer times.

Either way, it’s a quick and easy hack to keep your kirby grips/ bobby pins in, even in silky, fine hair. Give it a go and let me know how you get on!
