We first saw this look on the New York Fashion Week runway, and we fell in love with it instantly. Apparently we weren’t the only ones who were crushing on this ‘do, because Anna Victorino has taken this ponytail hairstyle as inspiration and tweaked it a bit to create her own version perfect for upcoming holiday parties. There’s just something fun about the bow trend—it allows you to wear it in new different ways, giving the classic bow-accented hairstyle a modern and stylish spin.
Ribbons on hair used to be a look for little girls; but in this video, Anna shows us that ladies like us can wear a bow on our pretty little heads, too! Watch how she does it in this step-by-step tutorial, and learn how to pull this look off!
How to Create a Festive Bow Ponytail Hairstyle
Wash and blow dry
To make sure your hair is ready to shine (literally and figuratively), condition it with Cream Silk Stunning Shine Conditioner after washing it with your favorite shampoo. Rinse well, then blow dry. This will give your hair luster, perfect for this runway hair look.
Section your hair and clip it to the top of your head so you can work on the sections underneath first.
Use a flat iron to make hair sleek, straight, and to add extra shine. Run the flat iron on your strands, starting from the crown, all the way down to the ends.
Create a ponytail
Part your hair the way you usually would and then gather it into a low ponytail.
Secure with an elastic band
Use an elastic band to secure your ponytail.
Conceal the elastic
Take a small section of hair and wrap it around the base of your ponytail to hide the elastic. Secure it with a bobby pin.
Add the bow
Finish your look with a nice black bow on top of your ponytail.
You can wear the bow ponytail hairstyle to almost anything. If you want to look professional and feminine at work, try this ‘do. And if you’re dressing up for special occasions, the festive bow ponytail is suitable, too.
Now go show off that new trendy, festive ponytail!
