I've been wanting to try Goody's Spin Pins for a while now, and I finally picked up a pair on the weekend. They are actually quite effective in holding my mane up in a neat-ish bun. I also got the updo pin from the same line. The picture is of the first time I put it in. It also does the job nicely... both do's would otherwise require fifteen to twenty strategically placed bobby pins and a fair amount of hairspray. Its nice having one or two pieces that enable chic do's on weekdays.
