#tiptuesday: Keep Your Bobby Pins From Sliding Silky-tressed ladies, here's how to put a stop to the slip and slide.

Being the proud owner of a head of hair devoid of texture, I call it a feat when my chin-length bob stays in its paintbrush-sized ponytail throughout the day.

And, voila! Slip-free pins with the deathly grip of ten strong men!
