Which way do you wear them, bumpy side down or up? Is there a right or wrong way? Just curious.

I saw a picture someone had posted on FaceBook about this today and can't believe after all these years I've put them in wrong lol! Up until today the bumpy side would have been up but I'll change them the next time I put them in one of the girl's hair.......

Bumpy side down. If you put it up, the bend at the end sticks up and looks fuuny.

OMG! I always do bumpy side up too! And it always annoyes me the the bend sticks up but thought the other way was wrong!!
Funny the littlest things.

The flat side of the pin sits against the scalp.
You open the pin up and use the straight side to glide into the hair.

Bumpy side up. Iam sitting next to a hairdresser who agrees.

Bumpy side down, my hairdresser does it this way too. I prefer the way it looks.

Bumpy side up.
I've got a few funky flowery ones and flower is bumpy side up.

If you get the curved ones, they curve with the bumpy side up - reckon that's pretty telling!

Was so hoping this was going to be a baby name thread

I just went and googled, wiki'd and squidoo'd and the majority of sites say flat side up.
A few do also say that it depends on your hair and the look you are going for or what you want to achieve.

I wondered if it was in Baby Names too. Nothing shocks me any more!
I'm bumpy side UP - except the other day TZ posted it should be bumpy side down so I tried it and may just be converted.

Bumpy side up, I am intrigued by bumpy side down so will try it next time!
Posted 14 February 2013 - 08:53 PM
I thought they had to go bumpy side up to look more blended in your hair? But maybe that's because I have really wavy hair? I buy the straight ones for my straight haired DDs dance costume! No issue there!

Bumpy side up, as they are more easily opened and slid into place that way.

I also think the manufacturer wouldn't advertise them upside down.

Have been using them for nearly 50 years and have always used them with the bumpy side up. It had never occurred to me to reverse them but I can see the sense in it.
