Hair Bow

Sometimes Annie throws requests at me when I’m styling her hair. She’ll shout out stuff like, “I want school hair!” “I want monster hair!” “I want baby princess hair!” I have fun coming up with different styles to match what she’s asked for. This bow was the result of, “I want Minnie Mouse hair!” It’s very easy to make, and it’s sure to please the little girl set (or the Minnie Mouse fans!).

Start with a high ponytail on the top of the head.

Comb out ponytail so it’s smooth and tangle-free.

Wrap your second hair elastic around your ponytail, pulling the hair through once. Wrap the elastic a second time, only pulling the hair through 1/3 of the way, creating a loop of hair with the extra in the front.
