View Full Version : Bow bun for long hair?

June 9th, 2015, 09:09 PM
I think bow buns are adorable, and I've tried a few methods, but I just have too much hair to do it successfully. Is there a way to make a bow bun that actually uses up a lot of hair but isn't floppy or too big in the middle?

Thank you!

We did the bow bun as the hair style of the month (http://forums.longhaircommunity.com/showthread.php?t=130040) a couple months ago, maybe you can find some advice there?

I successfully pulled off a bow bun at hip length. What I did was I used the length for each side of the bow, instead of dividing the one poof in half, if that makes sense. It eats up more length to do each side individually. Then I braided the piece that became the center of the bow, to also eat up length there. Hopefully that makes sense?
