The Hair Bow Bun is an older style I somehow thought I had in the Styling Station already! I found some older pictures of it while hunting through my files, so I came here to check... nope! Not here! So, I took a couple of styling pictures to go with it to help you create your own Hair Bow Bun.
To create this style start by putting your hair in a low pony tail, and band securely. It is best to use a band that matches your hair color closely. I did not do that in the styling pictures in order to show you how I am rolling the hair. Once your hair is in a pony tail, divide hair into two equal sections.
From Left to right:
Picture 1- Use a large roller or any other smooth, round object you can get your hands on. To show you how easy it is, I chose a bottle of self tanning lotion/foam. Take one section of your hair and hold it out to the side. Place the roller beneath the hair. You will in a sense, be rolling the hair under, towards your scalp. Once you reach your scalp, carefully slide the roller/bottle, out of your hair, while holding the curled hair.
Picture 2- Take a bobby pin and slide a pin on each end, carefully holding the shape as you go. Use as many bobby pins as needed to give you a secure hold. Pinning tip: If you create and X shape with your pins, crossing one over the other, it helps to hold better.
Repeat the frist two steps on the other side.
Picture 3- This shows the completed hair bow without floral adornment.
Picture 4- Floral accent: To add a floral accent, find a silk flower of your liking at a craft store. Cut the stem down to just shorter than the length of your rolls. Insert the flower behind the pony tail band. This will give it a strong hold. If needed, pin the stem at the base.
Simple, easy, fun!
