Cute as well as sexy bow hairstyles for long hairs are given here in step by step very easily. There are two kinds of people in the world. Those who love wearing bows, and those who prefer to do without. I fall into the former category, but if you do not, perhaps I can sway you. You see, bows are inherently girlish and sweet and, when worn well, give off a young, fresh and even flirty vibe. And despite what many think, bows are appropriate for all ages and aesthetics, so don’t restrict them to use by schoolgirls and Lady Gaga. Last week I raved about hair serving as its own accessory and this week I’m doing the same. Only instead of sharing braided headband tutorials, I’m talking about — you guessed it — bows. Specifically, bows made out of hair. Before you quietly back away out of fear that this style’s too tricky to master, I urge you to stop right there. Because you know what? Anyone can master bow hairstyles. She says to begin by gathering your hair into a high ponytail and looping hair through an elastic band with the ends sticking out. Next, pull apart the bun to create two loops (makes each side of the bow) and use the ends to wrap between (creates illusion of a bow knot). Secure with bobby pins and you’re ready to go.
Cute Bow Hairstyles For Long Hair Step By Step
For a clean, smooth bow you’ll want to make sure your hair is ready for styling; this mean, no knots or tangles. While it may be tempting to try this style with wet hair (since wet hair can be easier to work with), only dry hair will produce the signature bow. Your hair must be able to fluff out nicely when teased; wet hair does not fluff well. If you want a side bow or one on top of your head, brush and create the pony tail accordingly. Instead of pulling the ponytail all the way through, create a loop using about half to three quarters of the hair in the ponytail, leaving a long loose end. This loose end becomes the centerpiece of the bow. Be careful to only use a very small amount (a dime-sized dab of gel) so that you don’t overwhelm your hair, thus creating a droopy bow. Make sure the loop isn’t too loose or the sides will be too long and uncontrolled.Another option is to create a smaller bow with only half of your hair, leaving the other half of your hair loose.
Follow the same steps but instead of gathering all of your hair up into a ponytail, simply gather the top of your hair up into a loop. You can create ‘ribbons’ by curling the hair that you leave down. You could also create two bows, one on each side of your head. Create a loop on both sides of your head and follow the instructions listed below. Section off your hair into two evenly distributed sections. Work on one side at a time. These will form the sides of the bow. Use a mirror to guide the division and to help you keep it even. Use your finger to straighten out the other loop and push it flat against your head. Insert a bobby pin going from top to bottom at the base of the loop (under the hair so it is not showing). Place another bobby pin going from bottom to top. Do the same with the other loop. Take the loose strand of hair in front of the bow and pull it back over and through the middle of your bow sections. Make sure you get all of the loose strands.

Gel can help with sculpting and shaping the bow. You should be left with what resembles a loose bun with the hair ends securely fastened underneath the hair tie.
