Hair Bow Tutorial


I posted this picture of my hair in bow on instagram a while ago and a couple of people asked how to do it, so I thought I'd do a tutorial post! This is the first ever tutorial I've done, so I'm sorry if it's not very clear - feel free to ask for any more info if you need it :)
(There's a cheeky little Toy Story alien hiding in the background of the first couple of pictures which belongs to my boyfriend aha.)

You will need: hair bobbles, grips & hairspray.

Step 1: start off with your normal, basic ponytail. 
Step 2: put your hair into an 'upside down bun' - I couldn't think of a better expression for this, sorry! Start off by making your hair into another ponytail with a second bobble, but leave the ends of your hair tucked into the bobble. The ends of your hair should be nearest to the top of your head.
Step 3: Part the bun down the middle and pull each half of the bun to the sides. 
Step 4: get plenty of grips handy.
Step 5: pull the ends of your hair through the middle of the parted bun, then grip these just below the base of your ponytail. 
Step 6: finally spray your hair with hairspray and smooth over with your hands to keep any stray hairs down. And tadaaa, you're done :)

This is really simple once you've got the hang of it, but it's a nice change from your standard ponytail or bun. Great for those days when your hair's not behaving, or it needs a wash, but it's still an interesting hairdo! 

Has anyone got a different way of doing this? Let me know how you get on if you try this style! :) x
