ITEM OF THE DAYItem of the Day: "Gina Made It" Bun BowsAnn Louise Sullivan

Confession: My to-do list has a standing item titled “hair flair” on it.  Sadly, this task is harder to accomplish than one would think.  And with spring here, I have been particularly antsy to add a splash of sass to my up-do.  Well, lucky us, buns just got more fun!

I recently discovered these Gina Made It bun bows which are a sure (not to mention, easy) way to go from hair-don’t to hair-DO!

Polka dot, gingham, floral, or plaid, there is a pattern for all.  So whether you wear your bun high or choose to keep it low, one thing is for sure – Honey, these bows were made for show!

Proudly handcrafted in the U.S. of A. (at an eco-friendly factory, no less!), Gina keeps her inventory fresh with fun, new styles – Her bun bows sell for $30 and, thankfully, the hair accessories don’t stop there – She also has a variety of headbands, all priced at $24.

So, what are you waiting for? – Go, bow!

  1. After seeing this article and totally falling in love with the bun bow, I was quite dismayed to see how much they cost, and that you actually have to order two of them to meet the minimum dollar amount to place an order. I felt like everyone else below – disbelieve that something that looks so easy to make should cost so much! So I tried (unsuccessfully) to make one myself. Total craft fail. So I did what I do every time I overestimate my craft skills – searched Etsy. I ordered some less expensive bun bows ($6), but was disappointed by them. Still obsessed with the bun bow, I broke down this week and ordered two from Gina Made It. They are perfect in every way that the others weren’t.. Beautiful fabric, bow is perfectly-shaped and sized, the elastic it is attached to is the perfect size, and the bow stays securely where it is supposed to. I can’t believe I am saying this, but they are TOTALLY WORTH THE MONEY!!! Thanks for the recommendation Ann Louise!

  2. ladies, i totally hear you! but, rest assured, i wouldn’t dare hype a product i didn’t believe in. i am all about quality items that wear well (after all, my hair goes hard – oh, if these locks could talk!) i’m certainly about cheap alternatives (when and where they exist) but these bows were worth it to me, so i wanted to do the polite thing and share :) … and yes, i am jealous of you d.i.y. girls – if you can make these yourself, sew cool! (sorry, how could i resist?!) but if not, you’re welcome!

  3. These make me unreasonably happy.

    I love you.

  4. Item Description:

    Bun bows are an easy and elegant way to sweep up your tresses when things get a little frizzy or if you’re simply looking for a quick way to change up your look!
    Bun Bows are made from luxurious fabrics, including crushed velvets, lamés, brocades and matelassés. They are hand knotted in North Carolina and made with coordinating fold over elastic.
    Sassy style to upgrade your up-do!

    They use legit fabric and make these by hand. Someone has to make a living. You can’t just nickel and dime her just because you’re used to picking some up at walmart for $2.

  5. Yup, I was just going to say the same. Absolutely lovely idea, not new but a fresh take on an old idea and I also have to say that I would not pay that price for one. I’m a costume designer and whilst I can appreciate that it has been made in a Handcrafted/ Eco-friendly way, that doesn’t mean it has to have a high retail price which in turn makes it inaccessible to the average buyer. Something like this could easily be made at home with remnants of materials and elastic for very little cost so this kind of thing annoys me a little.

  7. Love them! But I would NEVER pay $30 for just one… maybe if it was $30 for a pack of at LEAST seven or eight, I would reconsider.

  8. Its literally a scrap fabric tied in a square knot. You could make 100 of them for $30

    • I know! I thought it was gonna be a tutorial or something like that. But thanks for the idea! I’m sure I can find a tutorial on pinterest, or make my own! But they’re super cute nonetheless

  9. $30 dollars for a bow and a little piece of elastic? Seems pretty pricey.

  10. oooh i love them so cute!
