3 New Ways to Add Hair Bows to Your ‘Do!

Lady Gaga made them famous, and now we stare at them puzzled of how to make them. I am talking about hair bows! Not fabric hair bows, but hair bows made from the hair on your head to make a bow. Go it? 😉 These little bows are adorable and are easy to make. I will show step by step how to create this looks with my darling model, Katie. All of these looks are heat-less  and go great with second day hair. Let’s begin!

The ponytail bow is first and is one of the easiest. Back comb around the crown of your head to take your ponytail into a more sophisticated style zone. Pull into an elastic in the upper mid section of your head. Pull out a piece of hair that is thick enough to create a bow and spray it with hair spray. This will ensure no fly- aways. Using a small elastic, pull the section of hair you just sprayed through the elastic to create the first loop. Tighten the elastic and then add the other end of the same piece of hair to create the second loop. There should be a small section of hair still remaining – this is what you’ll use to cover your elastic. Fluff the bow loops to create a little more body. A different way to do this look would to create the ponytail in a half-up-half-down style and create the bow.

This style is a bit harder beacuse of the fishtail braid. Pull hair to the side of your head and begin your fishtail braid. Once you get about 2 inches of braid, it’s time to pull out a small piece of hair – this will later turn into a bow. Keep braiding and pull out another piece of hair before you reach the end – this is for the second bow! Take the first strand of hair you pulled out and loop it through the braid. Use an elastic to secure the loop. Separate the loop into two loops. Use the remaining hair to tighten and wrap around the elastic. Secure in the fishtail braid using a bobby pin. Repeat with the second strand of hair to create another bow. So cute!

Last, we have the most dramatic look of the bunch. We have to admit, this one might not be the most wearable but it is definitely my favorite.  Flip your head upside down and french braid up the back of your head, starting at the top of your neck and ending close to the crown of your head. Use hair spray to secure the braid. Pull the rest of the unbraided hair into a high ponytail. Use an elastic to create one large loop – be sure to leave hair at the end to secure your bow. Separate the loop into two loops. Wrap part of the remaining hair around the center of the bow. Use bobby pins to secure remaining hair around the center of the bow.

Comment down below which one is your favorite!
