Have you ever wanted to learn how to style a hair bow. It is ridiculously easy, I promise. And such a fun change from a ponytail, don’t you think? I’ve had a little bit of an obsession with hair bows since Lady Gaga’s ‘Poker Face’ days (which feels like quite a long time ago now!) Finally I’ve learnt the tricks and have figured out how to do them myself. There is no going back now! ; ) 

P.s. Yes, you might have seen that I posted this a couple of months ago over on Here Comes the Sun. Sadly, HCTS has stopped blogging for the meantime (we miss you Amanda!) so I figured I’d share it over here too. Enjoy! xo


1. Begin by brushing all of the tangles from your hair, and tying it up into a ponytail on the very centre of your head.


2. Use your hair tie to to put your hair into a loose ponytail style bun. You’ll be left with a large amount of hair sticking out the front, which is fine. This will be the centre piece of your hair bow : )


3. Divide the bun area into two, trying to make them as even as possible. When they’re the size you’re after, use a bobby pin to secure them to the top of your head.


4. Finish the look by wrapping the loose hair over the middle of the bow. Tuck it into the elastic band as much as you can, and fix any messy bits with a good ol’ bobby pin.


And there you have it! As easy as pie, don’t you think? My hair is relatively good at keeping it’s shape, but don’t hesitate to add a little hair spray if you need it. Oh.. and of course – good luck! xo

  1. This is so cute. I had been wanting to do this hair style but my hair wasn’t long enough to cooperate and now it’s shorter. It looks adorable on you though!

  2. This is so much easier than I always thought it was! I can’t wait until my hair gets a bit longer to try it out. xoxo

  4. This is so cute! I’ve been wanting to try this for awhile, but shied away from doing so because I thought it would be difficult. I might have to give this a go for some upcoming holiday parties since it’s so simple! Thanks for the tutorial!

  5. Thanks Jo for making it so simple – if I have seen this bow on somebody, I would be like “LOOKS SO COMPLICATED, I WON’T EVEN BOTHER” 😀
