Default Non damaging up-do?

While I am still learning how to deal with my hair, there are days that I just don't feel like trying (overslept, tired, ect). On these days I am just twisting all of my hair back and securing with a claw clip. Is this damaging to my hair. If so, what are other options?
2a/b, med/high porosity, high density, fine texture

+1 on the spin pins! I lucked out and found some at the Dollar Tree (they're normally $5-6, so I picked some up. Played with them a bit and went and bought several more packs lol. If you play around with them you can do several styles that don't snag or break hair.
