The Bow Bun


Somehow I keep on apologizing for my lack of posting.
Oohf, it's really getting old. I'll try to put all my energy into this from now on!

So, back to the seemingly stylish subject, the hair bow was something we, well I, first saw on the perfectly bleached head of Miss Gaga. Lately, the hairstyle has gained quite a demand in popularity. It is fun, quirky and out of the ordinary. If you want something different and well, new, this may just be the style for you.

It's really easy to do. Promise! It looks incredibly complicated, but after a few tutorials from YouTube (okay. maybe just one) it's pretty easy to get the hang of it.

 Do It Yourself

 Step one: Take all of your hair up into a ponytail with an elastic band. BUT on the last action of pulling your hair through the band, take your hair halfway through, thus forming a semi bun/loop on your head. The loose hairs should face your forehead.

Step two: Divide the loop/bun into two sections, creating two new loops.

Step three: Take the loose ends that may be dangling in your eyes by now, and pull it over the middle of the divided bun, thus creating a third and final loop. You should be able to secure it through the elastic band by pulling it through, easily.

Step four: Puff your two loops to give it more volume, or straighten out your middle loop if needed. Now, just pair it with a cool and fun outfit, and you will be ready to go! 

It's difficult in the beginning, plus you need to be patient if you want to succeed in this. I'm terribly impatient, but after a few tries, I got it right. If these instructions are a bit too vague or confusing, I added a DIY tutorial from the amazing blogger, Mr Kate. Her blog is pretty awesome if you want to check it out! 





So I hope you get it right! It's a really cute look, and I encourage you to try it soon :)
