The "Hair Bow" Tutorial

I am so excited to bring you this super duper easy tutorial! I have been trying to sport the "Hair Bow" for like ever now. I finally have long enough hair and freshly dyed roots! Yay! Not to toot my own horn, but kind of, I can make a pretty mean pony tail. I always like to play around with updos and even my simplest pony tail takes some time and looks super cute! And, now I have yet another fun and easy hairstyle. This is definitely easier if you have longer hair. But it can be done with a tiny bun, and really cute if you do it as a half-up style. You must try it, you'll get lots of compliments and it is so much fun!

The Hair Bow

Start with a messy bun high on top of your head. 
Don't pull all the hair through, leaving some out on top of your head.
Stretch the bun part out as much as you can to have a fuller bow!

Side view of the first step. 
Remember: Stretched messy bun with extra stuff on top!

Take that extra stuff and pin it behind your now "bow" bun. 
This is the key to it looking like a bow!
Try to center it and make sure it is really secure.

And the back view! 
I could do this a little smoother probably, but I like the messy look.
Once you've got your bow the way you like, and all pieces are secure....SPRAY SPRAY SPRAY!
Hairspray will be your buddy for this style!!

I hope you all try this out soon! Please comment below and let me know how it went!
