Do you have any photos of the look you’re going for? I’m having trouble picturing what you’re trying to do.

Practice will help.I don’t think there’s any secret bobby pin out there that will help much, lol. Have you used hairspray so it holds? Freshly washed hair can be hard to style. I sometimes put spary hairspray then comb it out and then I start with the hairstyle.

Youtube has a TON of tutorials as well. This one might help you

Hair can be a serious PITA. Good luck!

I like the teeny tiny little jaw clip things. Using them, you’re clasping the hair loosely where you put them, instead if securing it down flat, like with a bobby pin.

Well, I don’t know if your hair is anything like mine, but mine was heavy and slippery when it was long. If it had just been washed, I pretty much couldn’t do anything with it. To get this look and make it stay, I had to use the right kind of clips, and make sure I “dirtied” my hair up a little, AKA spritz with some hairspray while brushing it out.

I had the best luck with this kind of barrette closure (although two bobby pins crossed over each other in an X works just as well):

I would pull my hair back fairly tightly to make sure it was smooth, and then clip it in securely. Then, one hand holding on to the clip to hold it in place, I would press a finger firmly across the clipped hair and ease it back out a little so that it wasn’t so tight against my head. I did that bit by bit until I was happy with the tension and evenness on each side.
