Bun with Hair bow


This hairstyle amazed me when I saw it on Instagram. At first I wasn’t sure if the bow is of real hair or a clip in pin. After knowing that the bun with bow is done with a hair itself, I couldn’t stop myself to try it.

I did this on a holiday. The day was windy so it was perfect hairstyle to wear. I did this for the couple of times before but on others.

You’ll Need: Brush, elastic, rat-tail comb, bobby pins, hair wax, spray bottle, hairspray {if required}

Time Taken: 7-8 mins

Skill Level: Medium

Steps of Instructions:

  1. Begin by securing the hair into high ponytail.
  2. Then section off about 1 inch piece of hair & keep it aside.
  3. Slide the bun maker or the donut into the high ponytail, leaving the 1 inch section underneath..
  4. Cover the hair evenly over the bun maker, use comb to even it out.
  5. Take another elastic & secure over the top of new covered hair bun.
  6. Then begin by twisting the remaining hair from the base, carefully adding the remaining hair into twist as you go around.
  7. When you run out of hair, bobby pin the end in place .
  8. Now release the small section kept aside, add the elastic up near the base of the bun.
  9. After wrapping the elastic around the hair a few times, before it is too tight, take your index finger and thumb through the elastic and pull through your first loop of hair.
  10. Then, give the elastic full twist and the form your second loop same as you did in step 9.
  11. Now, take any left over ends and wrap them up and over where the elastic can be seen in the middle of the bow, and secure them underneath the bun with a few small bobby pins.
  12. You can shape up the bow by adding small bobby pins from the bottom of the loop.
  13. Repeat on both the side.
  14. Add hairspray & wax to avoid flyaways.
