Hair bows are a fun way to add a twist to your basic updo. Why use a ribbon when you could turn your hair into an actual bow instead? This trend is sweeping the globe, turning everyday hair into a work of art. Keep reading to learn how to shape your hair into a cute bow.
Before you get started brush your hair to remove any tangles or knots. This will help you get a nice and smooth bow. The bow will work best if your hair has been recently washed and dried. Also make sure you have everything need close by to lessen the chance of your bow messing up.
Step 1: Begin by taking one small section of hair from each side of your head. The bigger the sections, the bigger the bow.
Step 2: Tie the two sections together with an elastic to create a half ponytail. Don't pull the ends through the elastic the last time you wrap it to create a loop like the picture on the right.
Step 3: Split the loop in half to create two smaller loops and clip one loop aside for later.
Step 4: Use your fingers to spread out the loop and push it flat against your head into a bow shape. Insert one bobby pin going from top to bottom and one going from bottom to top.
Step 5: Repeat on the opposite side to finish the bow shape.
Step 6: Pick up the remaining ends of the ponytail and wrap them up and around the elastic to hide it. Secure it with bobby pins underneath.
