  1. Small 0u8a6247

    Begin by taking one small section of hair from each side of your head. The bigger the sections, the bigger the bow.

  2. Small untitled 1

    Tie the two sections together with an elastic to create a half ponytail. Don't pull the ends through the elastic the last time you wrap it to create a loop like the picture on the right.

    Split the loop in half to create two smaller loops and clip one loop aside for later.

  4. Small untitled 12

    Use your fingers to spread out the loop and push it flat against your head into a bow shape. Insert one bobby pin going from top to bottom and one going from bottom to top. Repeat on the opposite side.

    Pick up the remaining ends of the ponytail and wrap them up and around the elastic to hide it. Secure it with bobby pins underneath.
