Hair DIY - Bow Bun Tutorial
It's February 29th, Leap Day, which means the rules don't apply, so we are going rogue today with a hair tutorial, a first here for Mama Duck. I made up this bow one day in a frantic effort to make my hair "event ready" before a Broadway show opening, and it's since become my "go to" hair when I have events.
You will need a hair elastic, hairspray and a heaping mess of bobby pins. I have a ton of hair, so I use about 15 pins, but you won't need nearly as much with shorter hair. Your hair should be straight and tangle-free.
So without further ado, here's a step-by-step photo guide for your own bow bun.
Update: I've got a second round of photos of the bow bun. It was just as easy this time as the last.
Enjoy, and Happy Leap Day!
If you give this a try, either send me a picture or if you're on instagram, use tag #ducksinarowhair and post your bow!
