Is this possible? I only have bobby pins, but I would love some root volume! Is there any way I can clip my hair with bobby pins?
Before I got duck clips I used to use bobby pins for root volume. I also think it's a great way for even when you are out. You can hide bobby pins very easily unlike duck clips. One time, I bobby pinned my bangs to the side of my hair while in the drying process and it made my hair very volumized. I think the best way to use bobby pins is by making sure you get as close to the root as possible. Try different methods and see what works for you.

I bobby pin my grown out bangs into a 'quiff' when drying to get volume, so yes you can. Just make loops of hair and pin at the point of a natural indent. You can also throw all your hair over to one side, pin then throw over to the other side and pin when partially dry.

I was wondering if there was a clipping method that was work-presentable.

These are good ideas! I've had problems with the top of my head being too flat and I'm eager to try bobby pins after reading this thread.
