1 Bow, 4 Styles

I've never done a hairstyle post before so please excuse the photos, it's quite a difficult task getting photos of the back of your head properly so I've done what i can - hopefully, you won't mind them too much and I'll get better over time. I was very kindly sent the 'Laura Lemon' Hair Bow* from Birdcage Bows.

This is a such a pretty hair bow - I'm a bit of a sucker for bows anyway, but i just love this - the lemon fabric and the white floral detailing really work well together, the motif almost has a vintage feel to it. It's the perfect hair accessory for summer! Rather than just doing a review on the bow, i thought id show some ways i like to wear it and share a few summary hairstyles too.

Top Knot Bun
This bow is the perfect accessory to any bow, whether it's a top knot or wore lower down it's really dresses it up. It doesn't need to worn the same way either, you can wear the bow at the front, at the back or even on a sideways angle. Such a simple way to dress up an easy hairstyle.

Upside Down Braided Bun
I kind of made up that name. For this hair style you braid your hair from the back rather than the top, gather your hair at the top and put into a top knot/bun and then add your pretty bow to the back. It's a great way to wear a regular bun but make it a little different!

Side Braid
 A nice simple way to dress up your hair, it goes nicely with straight or wavy hair. This style is a great way to take the hair off the front of your face especially when its a little warmer (i prefer to leave my fringe down) i tie the braid with a clear elastic and then clip in place with the bow, its a nice casual summery hairstyle.

Fishtail Braid with a twist.
This is my personal favourite and the one i wear the most. It's pretty much a simple fishtail braid but to get the twist at the top i put my hair into a side ponytail (make sure you use a clear elastic) make a little hole in the hair and feed the pony through and then do your fishtail braid and tie it. Take some scissors and snip the clear elastic at the top and it will leave this nice twist-y effect leading into the braid.

I hope you liked this post, if you'd like a more in depth post about any of the hair styles featured let me know and ill do my best to get one up! Definitely go and check out Birdcage Bows! These accessories are so pretty and such a good price too, i know I'll definitely be getting a lot of wear out of this over the summer.

What's your favourite hair accessory?
