Where in the world are all of my bobby pins going?
Over the years, I have been able to accept that my washing machine is responsible for eating my socks–there is only one way in and out of that thing so that is the only logical explanation. But could it be that my hair is eating my bobby pins?
I swear I find myself buying bobby pins way too often. I finally broke down and went to the beauty supply and bought the Annie brand tub of 300 bobby pins for like three or four bucks because I couldn’t take it anymore. I couldn’t keep spending $4 for a pack of like 30 bobby pins. DO YOU KNOW HOW MANY BOBBY PINS I AM CAPABLE OF USING AT ONE TIME? Half the pack will be gone and all I am rocking is a topknot bun. Terrible. The worst part is I will count 20 bobby pins going into my hair and only come up with five when I take my hair down at night. WHAT?! You can’t tell me that fifteen bobby pins fell out of my head during the course of the day and my hair managed to stay in tact. Nope.
Even if I make the most effort to put my bobby pins in the same place every night (I will admit that you can probably find a bobby pin on the floor anywhere in my apartment at any given moment), they still come up missing. Nothing is more frustrating than thinking you have the bobby pin game on lock when you go to start a heavily bobby pin-dependent hairstyle and realizing you only have like three bobby pins left. And I mean the last defective three. You know…the one with the missing rubber tips, the twisted one and the stretched out, misshapen one. Those three.
I can scour my entire apartment, my car and my desk at work and I will not come up with enough missing bobby pins to make a pack so it can’t be that I’m losing all of them, right? And I doubt hair accessory manufacturers are sending out Bobby Pin Trolls to collect all of our pins at night, forcing us to purchase more and ultimately putting more money into their pockets (even though I swear this ONE night…….).
So, yes. I have come to the conclusion that as washing machines have been accused of eating socks for years…my hair feeds on bobby pins. That is the only explanation.
