View Full Version : Do you like my bow?

March 18th, 2008, 03:30 PM

I was trying to do a french twist, using Cinnamon hair's instructions (http://classiclength.home.mchsi.com/french_twist_instructions/index.html)

It didn't turn out right. It turned out more like this:


And I thought, hey, that looks like a sideways bow! So I rolled it the opposite way, and voila! I thought it neat.

That is an absolutely fantastic invention! Your hair is unbelievably shiny! Princess Leia, eat your heart out.

March 18th, 2008, 03:34 PM
Your hair is gorgeous! I love it whether you think it is wrong or not! I love how shiny your hair is!

March 18th, 2008, 03:44 PM
How did you do that? Would you be so kind as to post instructions?
I LOVE your bow.

March 18th, 2008, 03:46 PM
That's gorgeous!

March 18th, 2008, 03:48 PM
That is so cute!

Thanks everyone :D

WritingPrincess, the instructions closely resemble Cinnamon Hair's french twist: http://classiclength.home.mchsi.com/french_twist_instructions/index.html

You start with the hair in a pony tail in the left hand, and fold the length with your right hand in a 6-8" long fold. Once it reaches your head, instead of twisting it like you would a french twist, you hold it horizontal and twist it from the bottom up. (or from top to bottom, which gives a slightly different effect). Then secure (I used a ficcare beak)

Very clever! You should have a viewer warning on those pictures though, that shiny hair of yours nearly blinded me! :cool:

The bow is very cute! Im already planning how I'd do two pigtail-style and slightly messy next time I wash.
You have beautiful hair, and I can't help but thing a nice faux flower pinned in between the roll and the crown would look fantastic.

It looks great! How stable is it?

March 18th, 2008, 04:26 PM
That looks so beautiful! Love your shine, wow!!

It looks great! How stable is it?

It's just as stable as the verticle version. But it takes a few tries to make the ficcare hold the right hairs, and if I planned on wearing it most of the day I'd definitely pin the side that the ficcare's not entered in, for balance.

Oh, that's so cute, freznow. :grin:

And your hair looks awesome. I had to double-check to see if you're still doing SO/NW. Wow, that's great result!

Haha!! I love the bow. It looks a little like a rawhide dog bone to me. Very cute & different.

March 18th, 2008, 07:21 PM
That's adorable, like an anime style! Who needs ribbon when you can make your hair into a bow?!

March 18th, 2008, 07:22 PM
I seem to remember that someone posted a fashion runway style like this awhile back. Isn't it fun to start out doing one thing and end up with something else that you like?

March 18th, 2008, 11:05 PM
That's so neat looking! Looks very oriental, I'm going to try that one sometime! And nice shine btw

March 18th, 2008, 11:09 PM
That's beautiful! That's ingenuity! Kudos.

March 19th, 2008, 07:27 AM
I like your bow !

March 19th, 2008, 07:39 AM
I love it, and you've got amazing shine! It makes me want to go NW, but going from every-other-day S&Cing to that would make me look awful for ages.
