This is such a popular one right now. I wanted to make sure that you know this can totally be done and used in short hair as well as with long hair. Using the hair for its own bow style can really be used for all kinds of hairstyles both fun for little girls to fancy for moms or brides. Hopefully this tutorial will get a few little girls with short hair this fun hairstyle.
Start with pigtails. Half the hair up and half the hair down. You can curl that under or diffuse it just as a thought. I am doing this is damp hair. Its not completely wet, but it is very damp to make sure and smooth away fly away hairs.
You make your loops with a little hair from each side and secure them with elastics for the bows loop. I came up with this idea to use the topsy-tail to to the cross over instead of going back and forth with hair and bobby-pins. I stuck the tool into the ponytail and I took a little hair from the ponytail rather than the ends from the loops. That way the ends are still there to act as the ends in the bow.
Pull some hair through the ponytail and you have your bows on both sides. MY LONG HAIR IDEA---- do climbers all the way down this bows at every intersection. That would just be so cute!!! I want to do it. I just need to get my hands into a head of very long hair. Maybe one of these days I will. If you take my suggestion make sure and send me a photo, I'd love to see this all the way down the hair.
Love this style, its easy and its cute and it is so much more than just pigtails. Hope you enjoy it too!
