Apr 23, 2011 - Love these! No longer do I have to wear a ponytail to work when my curls aren't behaving. They're so easy to use: after putting my hair in a bun (either tight or loose depending on the style I want) I put one pin in close to the loose end and near my scalp. Then I put the other in 90 degrees from the 1st pin (making an X) further away from my scalp. They typically hold all day!
