How to Style Bow Hair Braids
The most important factor for achieving bow braids is to have long hair. In case you have medium hair, we suggest using clip-in hair extensions.
Brush your hair smoothly and bring it to one side. Take a small section of hair and divide it into four equal strands, trying to create regular four-strand braids. The technique is very simple. You need to take strand number one and bring it under strand two and three to the right. Then reverse the direction and bring it over strand three to the left. Now, grab strand four, pass it behind strand two and strand three to the left and then over strand two to the right. Carefully repeat the steps until you have your four-strand braid completely done. As you finish it, pull the edges of the braid to make it bigger and chicer. Secure the tail of the braid with an elastic band.
Surely for the bow braid, you can also do a regular three-strand braid, however, a four-strand one makes a more reliable base for the bow braid, besides it looks more luxurious.
Now, we have reached the bow braiding part, for which you need a regular U-shaped hair pin. Insert the bobby pin into your braid. Take a small section of the loose hair, make a loop with it and slip it into the bobby pin. You can make the loop as big as you want your bow braid to be. Then just pull the hair pin back, bringing the half of the loop to the other side of your braid. Arrange the bow and continue doing this, until you reach the end of your braided tail.
As you see styling a bow braid isn’t something too difficult. You just need to move your fingers more masterfully to get a uniform look. Give it a try today and surprise your friends with your new one-of-a-kind hairstyle!
