    Monochrome Bobby Pins:

    There's been no better time to have a ton of bobby pins in your beauty cabinet because, with a handful of pins, you can create one of our favorite hairstyles for 2022. We're calling it: "Monochrome Bobby Pins," because all you really need are a few of the same color bobby pins. Whether that's white, black, gold—anything you have you can use!

    You can create a uniform design like we see from beauty artist Daniel Camarinho or opt for something more fun and chaotic like Lacy Redway did for Sarah Paulsonas seen below.

    Wavy Ponytail:

    No matter your hair type: kinky, coily, wavy, frizzy, curly, or straight, you can create texture and interest this year with a wavy ponytail.

    To create, pull out your bangs or create waves by swooping your edges. Slick hair back into either a low or high ponytail (depending on your preference). Next, wrap a small section of hair around the base of your ponytail and secure it withcolor-matched bobby pinsto create a seamless finish.

    Sleek and Stacked:

    This hairstyle gives off major runway model vibes, but the good news is you don't need a team of hair and makeup professionals to pull it off. Start with straight hair parted down the middle (a side part can also work for this look!). Then begin placing your bobby pins in a straight, evenly spaced line just behind your ear.

    We love the contrast white bobby pins make for those with dark black or brunette hair. And the opposite is true for those with blonde or light gray hair! Opt for a warm-toned brown or neutral black, depending on your hair color, skin tone, and outfit.

    Half-Up, Half-Down:

    The half-up hairstyles of the 2010s are coming back hot this year thanks to powerhouse brands like Versace, who styled several of their models (including Gigi Hadid, Dua Lipa, and Irina Shayk) with this half-up hairstyle in their SS22 runway show. We love it because it's the best of both worlds: you can pull your hair out of your face while keeping it long and luscious. But don't forget, hairspray and a few bobby pins are essential for recreating this sleek half-up, half-down look.

    Braided Updos:

    Braided updos are fun, chic, bohemian, and just happen to be all the rage this year. Braided buns are an easy way to incorporate this 2022 hair trend into your beauty routine, but if you really want to enhance your hairstyling skills go for a more complicated crown braid, like that seen on Ciara. And you don't need to have long hair to achieve this look; it can be done on short and medium lengths too!

    Sleek Bun:

    The sleek bun is every bit timeless as it is trendy. So it's no wonder that this hairstyle is continuing its run in 2022. The sleek bun has many variations from a high, pulled-back bun to a low bun with a middle part—you can really tailor this trendy hairstyle to best suit your face shape, outfit choice, activity, and mood.

    While you're playing around with this hairstyle in 2022, don't forget to stock up on the essential hair accessory—bobby pins. To secure your sleek bun or keep shorter hairs in place, you're going to want a few bobby pins for this updo.

    Oh, and did we mention that this sleek bun hairstyle works on any hair type? Even those with tightly coiled strands! For a step-by-step guide on how to get 4A, 4B, and 4C hair textures into a sleek, frizz-free bun, check out Queeny's tutorial.

    Crisscrossing Bobby Pins:

    You don't always have to be neat and orderly, and neither do your hairstyles. In 2022, we're embracing creativity and sophisticated chaos with this crisscrossing bobby pin hairstyle. What we love most about this bobby pin hairstyle (besides that it can work for all hair textures and lengths) is that it manages to be bold, edgy, and chic all at the same time.

    We think this hairstyle looks best with hair-contrasting bobby pins. So if your hair is light blonde or gray, go for a bold black bobby pin. If your hair is darker and more chocolatey, go with bright white or golden blondebobby pins.

    Bobby Pin Patterns:

    Bobby pins make the perfect tool for creating shape, texture, and interest in any hairstyle. In 2022, create fun hairstyles with shapes as the star of the show. All you need are a few bobby pins of any color—ideally you want to use pins one to two shades lighter or darker than your usual color so that it stands out, but anything you have on hand can work. Triangles and squares are the best shapes to start with, but feel free to take it above and beyond the norm by incorporating patterns, repeating shapes or creating trending hashtagsas shown above by the lovely@stinavision_created for us.

    Half-Up Braided Bun:

    Embodying the playful, wistful energy of 2022, this bobby pin hairstyle is incredibly easy to create and perfect for all of your new-year adventures. Ideal for medium to long hair lengths, you'll want to begin this bobby-pin hairstyle with straight or loosely curled hair.

    To start, separate the top section and pull out any face-framing pieces. You'll then divide the top section of hair into three equal parts and begin braiding, going as far down as you can. Loosen the braid with your fingers by gently pulling on the strands (the vibe you're going for is an effortless, relaxed braid).

    Holding the base of the braid with your hand, loosely twist the braid into a bun one time around, making sure to leave your ends out towards the side. Wrap up this easy hairstyle by securing the bun with—you guessed it—bobby pins, and you're good to go!
