I heard about these new hair pins by Goody called spin pins. They claim to replace using 20 bobbypins in your hair for upstyles. I found them at my local Target and have tried them a couple of times. Overall they are pretty cool, but for someone who has medium to fine hair like me, although a ton of it I had to do a little back combing to thicken up my hair so the pins ends wouldn't show. I wish they made them in different lengths. They also claim you don't need a ponytail holder first, but I found you do otherwise some of those side hairs fall out when the style loosens a bit.
