I'll admit that at first glance I was a bit confused, but I spread the direction sheet on the bathroom counter and slowly went step by step. Within a few minutes (really, maybe 3-4 minutes) of playing with it, I had a passable updo! In my job I attend many evening events and have spent a pretty penny on updo styling, but never again! I flip my head over, spray a bit of hairspray onto my medium-length, straight hair, and follow the instructions from there. The style stays up all evening, even while dancing! If you can figure it out, this little device is a bargain!

the picture made it look like you don't need very long or very thick hair to use this. my hair is just a little past my shoulders and seemed too short and too silky to use this, even if I tried to put all of my hair up in it (and not just half like in the picture). also, the instructions were confusing[...]I got better results using a few bobby pins. finally, it was very expensive for what it is!I tried a bunch of the products from goody's simple styles line, and was un-impressed.

Totally useless on fine hair!

      I tried to make this work for a whole hour the first time. My hair is fine but thick, straight, and mid-back length. No matter how many YouTube videos I watched it just wouldn't work. When I finally got it to work the next day, it would only stay in when my hair was twisted way too tight and one end of the pin was digging into my scalp.

        I hesitated buying this pin because it seems so expensive, but I have gotten several sets of the Goody simple spin pins, and I love those so I gave this a try.

        I got one for light hair, and I have dark, straight, relatively thick hair. A color choice for these products would be very helpful.

        As for using this pin, I found the instructions on the package to be very confusing. I read the review by peudelapin which was posted 7/2/11 and found it to be the most helpful. She basically said to stab it in, flip it over, and secure with a downward thrust. Common sense tells you to start with the arch facing away from your head so that when you flip it over, it is comfortable against the shape of your skull. I tried that and ended up with a great, tight French twisty thing with a waterfall from the ends at the top the first try. If the ends were curled slightly, it would look great.

        When I just want my hair up and out of my way at home, that is still what I do. I still haven't mastered getting a bun in without loose ends, but I have managed the French Twist.

        Bottom line: This is a great product to get your hair up and out of your way. If you are looking for something elegant, it will take a lot of work. This pin does definitely stay in my very straight, thick hair and stays very tightly in place.

        It was easy to follow the instructions, but this kind of product would work better if you had the hair for it. My hair is wavy but very fine. The pin would not stay in, I ended up giving it to my sister, she has curly thick hair and it worked great on her.

          After a few times playing with this, I finally got the hang of it and my hair stayed up all day! My hair is really long, curly and somewhat thick. The directions in the packaging are a bit confusing but i'd go to youtube and look for a nice 'how to' vid like i had done. Always keep one in my purse and car now just in case i decide i would like to put my hair up quickly and still look good.

              I loved these so much I bought 2! I wear my hair up in a bun, or french twist almost every day. This is very easy to use, and hair goes up in about 30 seconds, and it stays up all day. What's nice from a hair stick, is that these disappear in your hair, so all you see is the bun, or twist. My hair is mid length and totally fine and straight.

              In response to the person who said the tip rubbed off...just put some clear nail polish on it!

                  This hair thingy works well, but only in a (twist into bun, then stab under, flip it up and over then secure with downward thrust hair-do). I used it on wet hair which was my downfall, it wore away the spray on brown hair colored coating on the tips so that it gouged and sliced my head/hair when i used it. I suggest use only on dry hair, otherwise would have given it a 4-star since it does stay in all day. I have shoulder blade length hair that is super silky/slippery.

                      I like to wear my hair up a lot and was looking for a simple solution.I have fine wavy hair and this thing would not stay in at all.
