Eureka Moment: Hair Arrange Set

Happy Friday!!!  I think I do not have sense of "days" anymore as I thought yesterday was Friday and today is Saturday!  *hits head*

Nevertheless, it's a day worth celebrating as we survived the entire week!  YES!!!  Let's give ourselves a nice pat on the back for a wonderful job!  As for me, aside from a huge pat from Mr. AMW (He treats me like a li'l puppy at times..lol), I finally have scheduled a hair treatment!  Finally!!!  I haven't had my hair color redone after THIS.

Speaking of hair, you won't believe me if I tell you that I have so many queries over email regarding the Spin Pins and what-nots.  Honestly speaking, I find myself loving my hair down so I never really took interest on purchasing these.  

One day, as I was strolling around the 88 Heaven, a.k.a. Daiso *laughs*, I found these....

Hair Arrange Set

So Php88.00 (approx $2.00) for both the spiral pins and the chignon-maker (I invented the term by the way), not bad!   Looks like a "Eureka-moment" post worthy!

Instructions at the back.  They were all written in Japanese but you'll get the drift just by looking at the step-by-step diagram.

My hair is super layered by the way so twisting it into a bun will always be a challenge!  Out of the 2, I like the one for modern updo better!  I find it easier to manuever with my current hairstyle!

Step-by-step:

  • I gather my hair into a mid pony tail.
  • Twist the ponytail as you wrap it around your head to create a bun.
  •  Insert the pin upwards through the base of the bun.
  • With a light hand, twist the pin going downwards for it to be secured.
As you can see, the pink is hidden yet, I have this huge chunk of chicken hair showing, you can choose to leave it that way or you can secure them with bobby pins.  Ahhh, the agony of layered hair!

Overall, I still prefer a regular hair elastic to create casual looking updo on a regular basis but, I will definitely recommend this set to anyeone with medium to long hair minus the extreme layers!

For the price of less than a hundred pesos, the Daiso Hair Arrange Set definitely deserves its Eureka Moment slot!  You can purchase these at Daiso at the hair accessories section.

Update: I have found quite a  number of ways to use both hair product from the Hair Arrange Set!  I'll definitely share more in this blog once I get the chance to take photos :)

Have you used a similar Hair Arrange Set?
How do you find them?
Useful or useless?

Keep smilin'
Stay happy!

  8. I just bought one of those in Tokyo (for 105 yen... coz I didn't know that Daiso here in the Philippines had it lol). I love how it's so cheap. Other spin pins cost around 500 pesos. Crazy.

  10. Hi nikki! I bought my spin pins at sulit for only 30 a pair. But I guess they dont work for everyone, at least not for me. It can't hold up my hair for more than 10 mins

    1. Wow 30 a pair, I guess you have to have hair that's just right, not too thick or something? :) I know your hair is quite long kaya siguro nahirapan :D
