So many bows, so little time. A lot of people think they might look silly sporting a bow, but we’ve tracked down 11 great ways to wear one without looking like it’s your first day of kindergarten.

DOUBLE UP (above) Try using black grosgrain ribbon (that’s the one that has the tiny lines going across) and double your bow on a high pony. Make sure the pony has a bit of a messy texture so you don’t look like you’re going to cheer at a pep rally– no offense, cheerleaders!

BEHIND YOUR BUN: Luckily, with our tutorials you can do a bun like this or this in a couple quick minutes. Buns + topknots are particularly great if you’re going out after a long day of work. Throw it up and clip a big bow in the back. Fancy, fast!

Saw this gem floating around on Pinterest and I just love it. The super simple addition of a black ribbon can often do the trick. I love the way she used it as a headband and to tie off the braid. Crafty!

This was a very busy week for all of us. We were shooting Lauren’s Kohls campaign for the last few days, working on the new videos for our youtube page, and going through the hair tutorials that you guys submitted for our very first “guest post” contest. We’re really excited about the upcoming posts and videos (like the waterfall braid!) and we can hardly stand the wait!¬†Hope you all have a nice weekend and we will see you back here on Monday!
