It's a great time to be a bobby pin! Because believe it or not, this little hair accessory is ruling the runway at the Lakme Fashion Week Winter Festive 2019, and we are in love. Hairstylists are creating the most stunning hair looks using good ol’ bobby pins. Who knew the most handy and commonly misplaced hair accessory could be runway-worthy?
Bobby pins are meant to keep hair in place (but always in secret). Well, not anymore. It’s time for these unsung heroes of our life to shine bright, be noticed and get applauded for being every girl's BFF. And what better way to celebrate their existence than by showcasing them on the Lakme Fashion Week Winter Festive 2019 runway!
Here's all the bobby pins-piration you need, straight off the ramp...
Bobby pin hairstyle: Stacked
If you thought barrette stacking was the only hair trend ruling 2019, you're wrong! Turns out bobby pins can be used just the same way to up your hair game without spending a bomb and yet look stylish AF!
Bobby pin hairstyle: Criss-cross design
Give your regular hair clips and headbands a break and try this criss-cross bobby pins hairstyle. We saw Namrata Soni create it on a model and let us tell you it's really easy. Simply grab small sections of hair from the crown area and pin them back uniformly in a criss-cross style.
Bobby pin hairstyle: Side swept
Showstopper Diana Penty gave us all sorts of hairstyle goals as she walked the ramp for designer Ridhi Mehra sporting the side swept bobby pin style on one side and a waterfall braid on the other. We couldn't take our eyes off those shiny bobby pins and the way they complemented the stunning traditional attire she donned.
BRB, looking for all our misplaced bobby pins right now.
