Let's face it: There are some mornings when you want to look a little more pulled-together than usual. Ditch the comforting old mommy ponytail and go for something just as quick but more polished: the slightly messy updo. Twirl hair into a loose chignon and stick one corkscrew pin in the top and another in the bottom. These miracle pins hold hair more securely than a handful of bobby pins and -- bonus -- don't leave dents like elastic bands.
