You know what they are going to say right? “Rihanna’s Doobie wrap done started a trend” The question is did she? I am more inclined to say no and that the exposed bobby pin trend has been around way before Rihanna’s infamous red carpet doobie wrap.
With a few women sharing pictures of themselves on instagram rocking Rhianna’s ‘do, it’s probably fair to say that she has “re-sparked” the idea of the exposed bobby pin.
It doesn’t matter though, what matters is that this is one of the most creative things I have seen in a long time and well worth the exposure.
Exposing your bobby pins* is a big no no if you want a flawless style but now showing them has become fun and well ‘trendy’. I was first introduced to it by Whitney aka Naptural85, and did a little research myself to see cool intricate designs and ways to wear exposed bobby pins that are pretty unique.
Of course you can make some colorful bobby pins* yourself as Whitney explained, so just grab a note card or any card some nailpolish and get to work.
Other cool ways of making them is through color blocking. So using the same technique grab a few pieces of paper and place them on the pins however you see fit to do some color blocking.
