Using bobby pins as a hair accessory and not just a functional styling tool is something we're seeing more and more of right now and a cute half-up style with crisscrossed pins is one of our favorite ways to wear the look. To find out how to recreate it on your own hair, follow the tutorial below.

How to style it

Step 1

Starting with clean, towel dried hair, apply Advanced Hairstyle BLOW DRY IT Thermal Smoother Cream throughout. Use a wide-tooth comb to get even coverage from roots to ends because the cream protects and smooths your hair as it dries.

Step 2

Blow-dry your hair straight with the concentrator attached to your dryer. Use a paddle brush to keep each section of hair flat while keeping the airflow pointed downward.

Step 3

Once dried, brush your hair and run some oil or serum - whichever works best for you - through the mid-lengths and ends to add shine and nourish your mane after heat styling.

Step 4

Section off two small pieces of hair on either side of your face. Twist these pieces inward, then join them together at the back of your head. Secure the twist with two crisscrossed bobby pins. Use large pins that contrast with your hair color to maximize the visual impact.

Step 5

To add shine, keep flyaways at bay and eliminate frizz, mist your finished style generously with Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Strand Smoother Serum Spray.
