HOW TO USE A FRENCH HAIR PIN?

Step-by-step guide on how to use a French hair pin for elegant hairstyles

If you’re tired of the conventional ponytail or bun, the French hair pin, despite its initial intimidation, emerges as an excellent styling accessory to explore. This trendy U-shaped pin offers versatility, enabling the creation of various hairstyles such as a half-up, half-down look or the classic chignon. 

Despite its unique shape, which might be daunting for some, we’ll guide you through the process of achieving three distinct hairstyles using this accessory.

GLITTER HAIR EXTENSIONS: GIVE YOUR HAIR A TOUCH OF SHINE

Ideal Hair Length

When it comes to effectively utilizing a French hair pin, hair length plays a more crucial role than hair type. It’s essential to have hair just past shoulder length or longer. Sufficient hair length is necessary for twisting and securing the pin in place. 

However, this accessory may not be suitable for individuals with super-fine or thinning hair, as it requires an ample amount of hair to hold the pin securely. 

The Best Styles With a French Hair Pin

A French hair pin provides an opportunity to move beyond traditional bun or ponytail styles, offering a more creative and healthier alternative. Unlike hair ties that can cause damage through pulling, the French hair pin is commonly used in buns and chignons, providing security while preventing potential harm. Additionally, it works well for creating a half-up, half-down look, adding to its versatility.

Craft a bun with a French hair pin

1. Blow-dry your hair and use a hair straightener to eliminate frizz.

2. Spritz your hair with a texturizing spray for better grip, especially if you have fine hair.

3. Gather your hair at the back, twisting it in one direction until it forms a bun close to your scalp.

4. Insert the fork end of the pin into the twist, weaving it back and forth to secure it in place.

5. If needed, repeat the twisting and pinning process until your desired look is achieved.

Classic chignon using a French hair pin

1. Use a texturizing or sea salt spray on washed hair to provide hold.

2. Pull your hair into a low ponytail without securing it with an elastic.

3. Twist the hair around your thumb and insert the French pin between the nape of the hair and the top.

4. Position the pin with the two prongs directed upwards and diagonal, hooking it up and through to tighten strands.

5. Release some strands around your face and finish with a holding spray, avoiding products that make your hair too slick.

PIN-UP HAIRSTYLE: A RETRO-CHIC AESTHETIC

Half-up, half-down bun

1. Start with clean, dry hair, combing out any tangles with a detangling brush.

2. Separate the top section of your hair, starting from the temple area, and gather it towards the crown, temporarily securing it with a hair tie.

3. Remove the hair tie while holding the hair in place.

4. Twist the hair clockwise towards the back of your head, forming a natural bun shape.

5. Hold the bun against your head and use the French hairpin to secure it by sliding it through the twisted bun, entering from the top and pushing downwards through the middle. Alternatively, you can slide the pin diagonally for additional security.
