Womens Fashion: Hair Bow Styles

This week on the Bowdabra Blog we will be focusing on women’s fashion. Our Bowdabra Design Team will share with you stupendous tutorials for using ribbon in women’s fashion.

Today, Bowdabra Designer Sarah Forhan, will share a hair bow tutorial for creating an elegant posh hair bow using satin ribbon.

Materials Needed:

Instructions:

1. Begin by gathering your materials. You will need a Mini Bowdabra, Bowdabra Hair Bow Tool and Ruler, and Bowdabra Bow Wire.

2. Place the Bowdabra ® Hair Bow Tool and Ruler onto the Mini Bowdabra, leaving a space at the bottom for the Mini Bowdabra tower to move. Cut an 18” piece of Bowdabra Bow Wire and fold it in half. Lay it into the Mini Bowdabra. You’ll have a loop at one end and two loose pieces at the opposite end.

3. To make 4” wide bow with pointed loops and dovetails cut the ribbon 28” long. Cut each end of the ribbon with a dovetail cut. Seal each end with clear nail polish. Fold the ribbon in half to find the center. Make a crease at the center point. Place the ribbon at the crease mark down into the center of the Mini Bowdabra.

4. To make your first loop turn the ribbon at an angle place the bottom of the ribbon up, fold, crease the ribbon, and press into the Mini Bowdabra at the 2”mark. Tail should be facing down. Next, fold the other side making a loop at the same width. Tail should be facing down.

5. To make the bottom loops. Make another loop the same width as the others with the tail in the center. Fold and crease the ribbon and press into the Mini Bowdabra. Make the last loop with the other tail on the opposite side in the center.

6. To make a 3” wide bow with pointed loops and dovetails cut the ribbon 12” long. Cut each end of the ribbon with a dovetail cut. Seal each end with clear nail polish. Fold the ribbon in half to find the center. Make a crease at the center point. Place the ribbon at the crease mark down into the center of the Mini Bowdabra.

7. To make your first loop turn the ribbon at an angle place the bottom of the ribbon up, fold, crease the ribbon, and press into the Mini Bowdabra at the 1.5” mark. Tail should be facing down.

8. Next, fold the other side making a loop at the same width. Tail should be facing up.

9. Scrunch down with Mini Bowdabra Wand.

10. While the bow is still in the Mini Bowdabra, thread the two loose ends of the Mini Bowdabra Bow Wire through the loop at the other end.

11. Pull the Bowdabra Bow Wire tightly while the bow is still in the Mini Bowdabra.

12. Gently pull the bow out of the Mini Bowdabra. Separate the two loose ends of the Bowdabra Bow Wire and bring them around to the back of the bow and knot.

13. Line an alligator clip with 3/8? ribbon. Use either a hot glue gun or Glue Dots to line the alligator clip. Using the Bowdabra Bow Wire attach the bow to the clip. Finish the bow with a knotted 3/8? wide finishing ribbon.
