How to Create a Bow Bun | Prom Hairstyles


[MUSIC PLAYING] Hey, everyone. I’m Mindy from Cute
Girls Hairstyles. And today, Kam’s helping me– Hi, guys. And we’re going to show
you the CGH bow bun. Now, this is not a new concept. This is one that we’ve seen
lots of Instagrammers do before, but we’ve been asked by lots
of people to do a tutorial. So that’s what we’re
going to do today. And based on how
we’re dressed, you can tell what the weather
has been like here in Texas this spring. Pretty much– [THUNDER] That’s what I would have
said, for sure, too. It just rained, and
rained, and rained. We’re ready to build
an ark for our house. So let’s get going on the hair. We’ve begun by putting her
hair into a high pony tail. You can see that
her hair is wet. She just got done showering. But this also makes
this hairstyle fantastic for post-swimming. You’re going to begin by just
sectioning off a piece of hair off to the side. And you don’t want
it too big a section. This is what your bow is
going to be made out of later. So we’re just going to kind
of pull that, and really put an elastic around it
to hold it out of the way. Then we’re going to take
the rest of the hair and slide a donut
maker over the rest. And you get the donut
maker in place– I’m going to tip your
head down for me. Just let the hair fall. And you want to position the
hair so that it completely covers the donut maker. If you need a comb to just
smooth those hairs out, that’s great. Just make sure that it’s
pretty evenly spaced. Take another elastic and
flip it over the donut, so that it hugs that bun. Can you tip your head back? So you can see that we have
this nice pretty bun shape. Head down. And then we’re just going
to take– minus the piece that we already
secured, so make sure you keep that out of the way. We’re going to
begin right in here. And we’re just going to
start twisting the hair and adding in as we go along. I’m going to give
her a little spin. And just keep
twisting and adding, and twisting and adding. When you get to the end of the
twist, varying lengths of hair will land a little
bit differently. Then we’re just
going to bobby pin. Are you dizzy yet? That was funny. Twist and add, twist and add. Round and round she goes. So we’re just going to
add the bobby pins to hold those ends in place. And we have our twist done. Now we’re going to go back
over to this side right here. And we’re going
to start our bow. Her hair is striking drying
out just a little bit, so I’m going to wet
it down a little. And you’re going to take
a small elastic, this time one of the small stretchies,
and go ahead and put it around that hair
right at the top. And you’re going to
wrap it around the hair until the elastic
is pretty tight. So that’s pretty
tight right now, so I’m going to start
making my loops. So I’m going to
go, and I’m going to pull the hair part
of the way through to create my first loop. Here we go. Then I’m going to give
the elastic a twist, so you’re going to twist
it all the way once. And then I’m going to
comb these ends out. We want our loop to
be nice and pretty. Smooth we’re looking. And you can see that I still am
hanging onto that elastic right there. And I’m going to pull the hair
through one more time, creating our second loop for the bow. And then you can
kind of tweak it. Pull the hair out
more or less until you like the size of the bow. And we’ll shape it a
little bit more, too, with some bobby pins. So we’re going to take our bobby
pin, go up from the bottom, secure the bobby right
here in the hair, and then go through
the middle of the bow. This. And then you use that bobby
pin to pull on that bow and really give it the
shape and fluff you want. We’re going to do
another one on this side. So just go up from the
bottom, through the bow hair, and then pull and shape until
you like the way it looks. Now we have these
little bit of ends. We’re going to use these to
cover the elastic right here. Just get a bobby pin ready. Take them up. And we’re going to just
tuck it right there and pin it, so that it gives
our bow a nice little shape. You can tweak those
again when you’re done. Take the rest of the
ends, if you have any. This, again, will depend
on her length a little bit. And just pin them and hide
them under our original twist. And just mess with the bow until
you like the shape you get. And you’re done. Do the final spin. We have our adorable
bow and our cute bun. This would be a great
dance style, too. Something to mix up
all those ballet buns. Now, if you guys missed
it this last week, we actually put two videos. We put up the woven
faux hawk on Sunday, and we put up the messy
bun hawk on Wednesday. Try saying that five times fast. Woven faux hawk, messy bun hawk. La, la, la, la, la. Be sure to check them out,
because they’re both awesome. You can find the links to both
of them in the description box below. Be sure to give us a thumbs
up if you love our tutorials, and leave a comment
below telling us what your favorite summer plan is. And we’ll see you
guys next Sunday. Bye you guys. Bye. Don’t tell Brooklyn and Bailey.
