Did you know that the correct way to insert a bobby pin in your hair is with the wavy side down?
We all know the flat side of the bobby pin is longer than the wavy side. Apparently the wavy texture is designed to grip your hair in place and the flat side is meant to push it down and hold it in the grooves.
I did not know this

And suddenly I feel like a complete dumbshit.

…this explains a lot of my issues with my hair
(but headbands are easy and i have no ambition so it’s unlikely to ever change!)
At least I know my Fallout characters have been picking locks the right way ‘round.
*mind blown* Once again Tumblr, you have opened my eyes to the truth!
