Until now. The Original Artist Bracelets by Wear Your Music are a series of bangle-style bracelets crafted from used guitar and bass strings, donated by over 150 artists (such as Eric Clapton, Jack Johnson, Santana, MGMT and Bonnie Raitt) with 100% of profits going to a charity selected by the artist.

Are you the type of girl that occasionally throws your hair into a messy bun while running out the door? I know I am! Recently I came across the best hair accessory ever. The Spin Pin. These little hair spirals do the work of 20 bobby pins, allowing you create the perfect, easy bun.

HOT TO USE:
Simply twirl your hair and twist the two Spin Pins together for the perfect undone bun.

Step #1: Gather your hair at the nape of your neck (no ponytail holder needed)

Step #2: Twist your hair into a tight bun and tuck in the ends

Step #3: Spin one pin in from the top and the other up from the bottom

Buy It: Amazon (or any CVS, walgreens or local target store)
Cost: ~$8
