UPDATE: This post originally ran on August 14th, but fall is a great time to change up your look so we wanted to run it again!
Has this ever happened to you? You need a change, so you chop off all your hair. A week later, you decide you want long hair again – and it takes you a year to grow it back. I’ve always wished there was a way to instantly switch up hair lengths without using extensions or a wig… and I recently found out that there is.
All you need is two spin pins and a good hairdresser to give you the proper haircut. In this case, the “proper haircut” refers to lots of long layers that start just beneath your ear.
First, determine which layers you’d like to keep visible, and secure that section on top of your head to get it out of the way.
Take the remaining hair and form a bun, as flat as you can get it, near the nape of your neck.
Insert a spin pin through the bun at an angle, as shown below.
Insert a second spin pin through the bun on the other side, so that the pins form an “X” shape.
Let the top section of hair back down, being sure to cover the bun with it.
Enjoy your new short hair!
