A simple guide to a (half up) Hair Bow Style!

If you’re looking for some hair style inspo, why not try out this simple style!

It uses the same foundations as the Flower Braid that I showed you in a previous post and starts by doing the following steps:

Step 1 – Use some large barrelled curling tongs to create a loose wave through your hair. Run your fingers through the hair to separate out the curls before giving a light spritz of hair spray.

Step 2 – Pull a small section from either side of your face. Twist each section and secure with a small clear bobble (see pic below). This is what we will use to make the bow.

If your hair is layered and the front sections are shorter, you will find that the bobbled will be quite thin.  To get a nice thick bow, you will need to add some additional hair from behind where the bobble sits – and add it into the ponytailed section. This is where the hair is at its longest and will add extra volume.

Step 3: To make the bow, take the hair and pull through a small section to make a bun (leaving a long trail of hair).  Once secured, separate the hair down the middle before bringing the hair (from the long trail) up and round, using a Kirkby grip to pin.

This Step by Step picture is from my post on a Hair Bow where you use all your hair!! It shows Step 3 (on a larger scale!) but if you’d like a bit more guidance, you can check out my YouTube guide by clicking Here.

Step 4: Give a spritz of hairspray and you have this super pretty look nailed!!
