Hong Kong's weather this time of year is scorching. Sure Malaysia's hot too, but there I have a car, here I take public transport and I WALK. Having my hair down is out of the question. So I'm eternally glad I picked up these little darlings on my trip to Shanghai.
By the way, WHY are these things available in Shanghai and not Hong Kong? WHY??
Because they are beyond fabulous. Each one does the work of "20 bobby pins" and hold up my hair without damaging the strands or being remotely uncomfortable - unless I screw the bun to tight that is.
They also let me do this...
I picked up the spin pins from Watsons Shanghai for about RMB50 and have been kicking myself ever since that I didn't buy backups AND the mini spin pins (they're smaller and will allow styles like this).
Please Goody... at least ship internationally for a decent price. I beg you!
Oh the flower's from H&M in case you were wondering.
