Fab Ways to Wear a Bow in Your Hair

Fab Ways to Wear a Bow in Your Hair (2)Not all hair bow lovers know this, and it is worth mentioning now – hair bows aren’t just for little girls. Yep, even sophisticated, grown up women can wear a hair bow and not look like a little girl. With the right choice of hairstyle and just enough confidence, even you  (YES, YOU!) can pull off wearing a hair bow.

Before I share some of the ways to wear a bow, there are just a few dos and don’ts you should know. Note: There are no official rules for wearing a bow, but these opinions may be helpful.


  • Keep it small
  • Stick with neutral colors


  • Never right on top of your head. (insert Flinstones image here)
  • Never too close to your face.

Now that you know some dos and don’ts, check out these {grown-up} ways you can wear a hair bow.

1. Side Swept Bangs

This hair bow hairstyle is super easy to do, and it’s perfect for those busy days! I love that it gives you a simple and elegant look and keeps hair away from your face. To do this hairstyle: First, part your hair on one side. Next, take a section of your hair to the side. Finally, secure with a hair bow of your choice. (remember to keep it small and neutral)

2.  Classic French Braid

Brush your hair thoroughly to remove knots and tangles. Part your hair to one side and then braid into a nice French braid. Use an elastic to hold your braid in place and then wrap or attach a hair bow of your choice.

3. Ponytail

Grab all your hair together and use an elastic to secure  hair into a ponytail. Attach a nice hair bow to hide the elastic. Alternatively, you can use our Bow On Rubberband. There are some variants of this hairstyle that you can try: high or low ponytail, half-up and side ponytail.
