It is March and some of you are still snowed in. How about something on the silly side to cheer those folks up. The Bow Bun. The tutorial I have bookmarked is a nice photo collage by our own, if mostly absent, Meishkamooshka. (http://forums.longhaircommunity.com/showthread.php?t=98504&p=2404975&viewfull=1#post2404975) If you know a good video tutorial for this, or for variations, share away.

Hm, at apl I wonder if I have enough hair for this style. Perhaps of I modify it a little. I'm gonna have to try after I wash my hair and the wave falls out.

Hopefully this month it will go better!

Hi! I miss y'all too! I believe the tutorial linked was the one I consulted, as well! Bow buns are difficult the longerand/or heavier your hair is, but I think you can do it!

Meishkamooshka, this style looks so cute on you!

This is my best attempt out of many! I modified the style a little by winding the left-over tail around the base of the bow:

Hm. I may try this when I get a chance, just to see if it would work with my hair!

You look so very sweet, StellaKatherine! And your bow bun looks perfect! I've been wanting to do this bun for sometime now but I always postponed it as I have a strong aversion to bobby pins... :tmi:

Awww, thank you Wosie :D I must say it didn't take as many bobby pins as I thought it would. Maybe 2 on each side ?

My best attempt. The first w/o braid was a bit of a bust. I feel like I am missing a step. This shouldn't feel like I have too much hair right? I'm only BCL.

I think this is easier to do with shorter hair....

I made the loops much too big. But proof that you can do this at classic length! Just lots of wrapping the length. I'll try again another day and do the loops shorter.

You all look gorgeous with your bow buns! I tried to do this style, but my scalp complained too much and the bun kind of exploded due to my layers. Ah well, I'll just enjoy the pictures here :D
Neko, the loops look like bunny ears to me, so that would be a great hairstyle for easter! ;)

My large and unruly bow bun for March 2015. There is no photo taken from the front as the bun was shy and hid itself behind my head and refused to be seen at all:)

Kendrix - you look so similar to Barbara Streisand . Gorgeous picture.
Sarahlabyrinth, wow you did it. You've got quite the head of hair yourself. very pretty
Ladylonglocks ..... With hair like yours, anything you do looks fabulous
And seeshami..... I don't think I have ever met anyone online whose appearance has surprised me more than you.
You are just so pretty with gorgeous hair yet you're a complete ham.
I mean that in the most loving way though. :flowers:

I originally posted this in the bun picture thread, but it was pointed out to me that the bow bun is actually the hairstyle of the month. How funny, I had no idea :D

An awesome coincidence! :) Love the way it looks on you.
I tried it last night, so I will put some photos of that up tonight. I also tried twin bows but that really did not work out, so I might try doing what Seeshami did, and just use the upper part of my hair. :)

It might be a bit more difficult to do it with hair as long as yours, but I'm curious to see some pictures :)

Here's mine (finally)! I overestimated the size of the loop so the bow was a little droopy, but it turned out pretty nice, especially with after adding some dangly earrings.

Forgive me for necro-ing this thread, but I found a different tutorial for a hair bow that I came across when looking for 1920's hairstyles for long hair. It might work well for thinner and longer hair, as one can just make more loops of a smaller size before wrapping the last bit of hair around the middle. That seems like it would make for a fuller bow with less length left to wrap around the base.
