Hair bow hairstyles were made popular by Lady Gaga a few years back. Instead of a traditional fabric hair bow, hair bow hairstyles utilize a person’s own long hair to create ta bow shape. Although they aren’t your typical everyday hairstyles, they’re a nice unique and fun addition to your hairstyle rotation. These hairstyles are super cute and feminine, and can be used for formal styles or casual styles.
Generally, because of the amount of hair needed to make the bows, hair bow hairstyles are best for ladies with long hair. Women with medium length hair, though, can also try hair bow hairstyles, but the bows won’t be as big. Hair extensions can also be used to create a hair bow hairstyle. Hair bow styles look smoothest on straight, sleek hair, but they can also look smashing in wavy and curly hair.
It may look complicated, but a hair bow hairstyle may be so much easier than you think to create. There are a couple of different ways to create a hair bow with actual hair. The most common way is by creating two loops of hair next to each other and covering the middle with a small section of hair.
