Giggles and Glue Guns DIY Hair Bow Mr. Kate

I’m obsessed with bows! I’ve admired this hair-do for a while and then was thrilled when I discovered a super simple way to do it! Watch the PG-13 rated video tutorial here!


  1. Gather all of your hair on the top of your head and start a ponytail with an elastic.
  2. Loop your hair through the elastic and on the last pull through, don’t pull your hair all the way through and instead create a loop, leaving the tail of your hair (the ends) pointing toward your forehead.
  3. Divide your loop into two halves.
  4. Take the ends/tail of your hair and fold it back through the space in your two looped halves, creating the center ‘knot’ part of the bow and secure the ends in the elastic behind the bow in the back of your head.
  5. Fluff up your bow by spreading out the loops and gently tugging them tighter like you would cinch a ponytail tighter and voila!

  5. Thanks for this! I did this for my daughter as soon as I read it. So adorable!

  6. So AWESOME!!!

  7. Doesnt seem to work quiet as well if you have long hair (like down to your chest or longer). I just tried and it wouldn’t stand up… just flopped over

    • Yeah, try teasing your hair and spraying it. You might need to leave a longer tail as well to wrap around so the bow is smaller and the tail is longer. use the excess of the tail to wrap around and cover the elastic. xx

    • You may need to add some texture to your hair!

  8. This is great! omfg it looks so easy. Thank you xx
