Simple Hair Bow Bun Tutorial

Being the girl who had pixie-cut-short hair all her life, this long hair business is still a new and exciting venture for me. I didn’t know how to braid hair until my eldest daughter had hair long enough for me to practice with, and now that I’ve got the basics down, I’ve been having a blast experimenting.

Hair doesn’t have to be something that takes hours and tons of products to tame, and if it does, you’re probably sporting the wrong ‘do. Seriously. Today I’m sharing a super simple hair bow bun tutorial. It’s the kind of style that be left messy for an everyday kind of look, or slick and clean for events and special occasions. I usually leave it a little bit messy, but I cleaned it up a little so you can get a better idea of the shape and structure; that way you can master the look yourself!

I like to start by pinning back my bangs, mostly because they are at just the right length to annoy the crap out of me by falling out of my hairstyles. If you don’t like pinning back those bangs, don’t worry about it, it’s not necessary, only my own personal preference.

Whether you’re leaving those bangs up or down, it’s time to tease your hair to give it some structure and volume.

I really recommend teasing because it provides nice bulk to build your hair bow bun, and helps prevent your style from going limp. This especially helps with freshly washed hair, which mine happens to be in these photos.

Once you’ve built up a nice, puffy ‘do, start tying a high ponytail. Don’t finish the pony though, only pull your hair halfway through the last tie.

With the ends of your hair pointed toward your forehead, grab the loop of hair with both hands and gently separate into two equal pieces.

Once separated, take the hair ends and pull them back over the loop, and secure them with a bobby pin.

After you’ve pinned your hair, fluff up your hair and smooth it out as you see fit to finish off the look, and you’re done!
