How To: Bow Bun

Do you ever have those days where your hair just won't cooperate? 'Cause I do. And it drives me a little bonkers. I've seen a lot of bow buns in magazines lately and decided to give it a try on one of those unruly hair days; turns out it's a quick and easy fix! Here's how it's done, ladies.

Step One: Start with a simple high bun, leaving hair loose in the back. It's not really a bun, but I'm not sure what else to call it. Loop under thingie?? You know what I mean.

Step Two: Split bun in half

Step Three: Pull hair left hanging in back over the center of bun and secure with bobby pins. That's it! Easy as pie.

 Your very own bow bun! It's as simple as that, and a cute fix for any bad hair day.

What hair styles are you currently loving?


  1. you are the cutest! your hair bow looks so good! i love it!

  2. Oh my goodness! I've never seen it actually explained. Makes me want to go into the office bathroom & play with my hair immediately. It's a low pony tail kind of day for me. Ha!

    Also, what kind of camera do you have? I'm currently doing research on midlevel cameras. I want something better than my point & shoot but I don't think a dSLR is right for what I need. But from what I can tell, looks like you've got a rebel. Worth the $$$?

    1. Hi Nichole! I have the Cannon Rebel T3i...I love it! I still don't know exactly all that it does (or even close) but it's a great camera. I've had it since December and have nothing but good things to say about it. Hope that helps a little!

  3. Okay, this is just the cutest with a baby bump!

    Love it and seriously, easy!

  4. I could have used this for today :) Thanks Brit!

  5. I've been seeing this all over pinterest...I've been so confused about my hair lately...rig now it's super red and I'm not sure I like it...I always wear it up and thinking of chopping it off...I just don't know!

  6. I just watched a sock bun (aka the big perfectly round J.lo style bun) tutorial last night and I am going to attempt it soon! This is another trick i want to try now. Thanks!

  7. So very cute Brit! I need to try hair is so boring these days.

  8. Super cute, and way easy. I'll give it a try. My hair is so long I'm always trying something different vs. just up in a messy bun.


Thank you for leaving some love!
