I am convinced that bobby pins are tools of the devil. They poke, they prod and they love to play hide-n-seek in my coils. I have always admired those who were able to sculpt their hair into magnificent updo styles, but that ability has always escaped me and I blame the bobby pin. It always seems that no matter how many bobby pins (or hair pins) I use I just cannot get my hair to “stay”. So I watched with a gleam in my eye hoping that one day, I too would be able to one day perfect the updo.
Here ye, here ye, let it henceforth be known that I have perfected the updo.
…and I did it without bobby pins #pow! So how did I do it? Let me introduce you to my new best friend oh yes, meet the Scunci Upzing. This tool is genius! It is two side combs attached by stretchy i-cord. It is super easy to use: simply slide a comb in on one side, then grab the other comb and slide in on the other. Done. The I-cord in the middle helps keep the hair in place and also prevent the combs from slipping.
I have been wearing this style all week in a variety of different ways. I first wore my hair in two-strand twists using Entwine Creme de la Mold. After a few days I took the twists down and wore a twist-out. I have changed the the style several times wearing an updo with side bangs, a pompadour and ninja bun, faux french roll with bangs, faux french roll with loose flat-twist bang (see above) as this style was so easily transferable.
The Scunci Upzing can be found almost anywhere hair accessories are sold Walgreens, Target, Wal-Mart or online at Amazon. I even heard that there is a cheapy knock-off at dollar stores. This is the best $3 I have ever spent. So if you like me are bobby pin impaired you really need to check out the Upzing.
