Add a little color to your Valentine’s outfit with this super easy (and super cute) felt hair bow.
Now my girls wanted to make their own hair bows (theirs are the ones to the left). So, you can see it’s easy enough for a 5 and 7 year old to do.
Here’s what you’ll need:
- Hot glue gun
- hair clip
Step 1 – Cut the felt into two strips (one about 2 inches thick and the other about 1/2 inch).
Step 2 – Fold and glue the bigger strip to form a loop.
Step 3 – Scrunch the loop.
Step 4 – While holding the scrunched loop, wrap the smaller strip tightly around the bow and glue.
Step 5 – Glue on any embellishments to your bow.
Step 6 – Glue your bow to the hair clip.
I love retro hairstyles. They are so easy to create yet very cute. So, here’s two styles that work on curly or straight hair.
The night before, I used Curlformers to create a more defined curl. While I love my Curlformers, sometimes they can look a little Shirley Temple-like (nothing’s wrong with Shirley if that’s the look you’re going for). To stretch my curls, I wrap the ringlets around my head (as if I were wrapping my hair) and pin with a bobby pin.
Step 1: Separate hair into two sections and tie the top section out of the way.
Step 2: Roll/tuck bottom section.
Step 3: Secure roll with bobby pins.
Step 4: Part hair on the side. Leaving a small section from the front (crown) out, roll/tuck top section.
Step 5: Secure roll with bobby pins.
Srep 6: Take strands from the front section and drape across forehead and pin in place. Continue doing this until all the curls are pinned.
I added a headbeand to give this look a little more elegance.
Here’s a modern twist on the first hairstyle.
Step 1: Part hair on the side and roll/tuck one side halfway around your head.
Step 2: Secure roll with bobby pins.
Step 3: Take strands from the front section and drape across forehead and pin in place.
Step 4: Pull on curls to stretch them. Fluff hair and pin any hair in place.
Step 5: All finished!
Let me know if you try either of these styles!
