Hairstyling may be frustrating. We all know this feeling when your hair simply refuses to cooperate and lives its own life when you’re attempting a slicked-back glam. The comb is not combing, and the hair keeps getting messy no matter how hard you try to get rid of those stubborn bumps at the crown of your head.
The first thing that comes to mind is to start over. But what if we tell you there’s a chance to fix your hairstyle without actually redoing it? Sounds curious? Then, watch this viral hair hack with a bobby pin to tame your locks for a sleek look.
Yes, you heard it right. All you need is a teeny-tiny bobby pin that surely rests somewhere at the bottom of your purse. Slide the pin underneath a bumpy area of your sleek ponytail by placing the tool flat against the scalp. Then, carefully swipe a bobby pin through the hair, moving from the front to the back as if slicking the strands back from underneath your hair.
And just like that, with this simple move, all the bumps magically disappear, leaving a smooth hairline. The hairpin basically moves the bumps to the base of the ponytail, so it’s easier to hide them. The hair devotees are raving over this trick, thanking the TikTok creator in the comment section. “YOURE JOKING where were you when I was in middle school,” one person writes. “So you’re telling me I didn’t need to redo it 1000 times and hit myself with the brush and cry,” another follower adds.
Some users still feel skeptical about the tip, claiming the pin will only make things worse. “Nahhh knowing me, I’ll just make it even worse,” one user complains. “But I don’t understand how you do it, my hair gettin’ tangled,” another comment says. The secret is to take the right side of the bobby pin and everything will work.
The author of the video comes to the rescue in the comment section, “Guys the right side is the one that won’t tangle up your hair so the round side, not the one with the two ends.” What she means is that you need to “brush” the hair bumps with the wavy side of the pin.
For a more finished look and stronger hold, don’t forget to apply your favorite hair spray. It will help get rid of the frizz and smooth everything out for a polished and chic glam. You can always elevate your slicked-back hairstyle with hair accessories to create a festive mood.
If you’re tired of your ponytail getting all lumpy and bumpy, this bobby pin hack is for you! With this trick, you will nail sleek hairstyles like a real pro.
