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!

That flower accent really adds something special to it as well. That makes me want to take a trip down to the local craft store to look for some silk flowers.

But I tried it and my hair was not working with it!&nbsp; Not a 'clean' hair style for me...&nbsp; It kept falling out of my hands begore I could get a pin in.&nbsp; &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; I'll have to try it another day and maybe use some aloe vera...&nbsp; Thanks for the good idea.

Just wrapping it around your hand. It might not be as perfectly round, but might work just as well or better. Sometimes it just takes a little practice to get used to controlling the hair while you slip out the roller and pin in place! Hope you can get it to work!
