Braided Bow Hairstyle

The Braided Hair Bow Hairstyle
Inspired by

Cute Bow Hairstyle

The basic concept of this "braided bow" is inspired by a darling hairstyle "the subtle bow" which can be found on our friend Mindy's blog, We have also seen several cute "shoelace" type hair bows on Pinterest lately. Bows made from hair (including the popular Lady Gaga Hairbow) seem to be very trendy right now! The princess loves wearing hairstyles featuring these cute bows, but the problem we have had is keeping the bow intact... especially all day at school. We decided to try creating a bow made with braids to see what it would look like (thinking it might be more sturdy.) We really like how easy and quick this cute hairstyle is, and how well it held up.  We have found this bow to stay in place all day long with just 2 bobby pins!

After making the braided bow, we added a few curls with our curling iron (to just the top layer of her hair.)  The method we used can be found at this link:  How to make curling iron ringlets.

This hairstyle is casual enough for every day wear and would be a darling back to school hairstyle, maybe even a hairstyle for picture day?  I could also see this working for a special occasion such as a flower girl, church, recital, etc.

If you prefer not to leave your daughter's hair down, you could add a quick side ponytail for another variation. Now that the Princess's hair is getting longer, it really helps cut down on tangles and knots if we keep her hair somewhat tied back (especially on windy days.)
