I think I can be forgiven for being totally ignorant about what spin pins are! It has been decades since I wore my hair long. But I have since found out they are great for securing hair buns and eliminating the need for gadzillion hair pins.
They are a kind of wire corkscrews. They are inserted clockwise into hair buns and removed in an anti-clockwise fashion.
Heather over on The Spohrs are Multiplying has a super idea on how to decorate ready made spin pins. These plain pins sure do need some pizzazz. She recycled some old jewelry and glued them on.
These can also be wired on. If you look carefully at the pin, it was made by doubling up a length of wire which is then wound around a mandrel. So you can DIY them if you can handle thick wire. Heather says to try smaller pins for people with fine or less hair (like children)
Now that it's getting warm, time to spin up long hair!
