How To Style a Hair Bow: 1. Start with a loose pony tail. 2-3. Take the rubber band (or pony tail holder) and pull the hair through half-way. 4. Flip the tail to the other side and repeat, leaving a small tail remaining. 5. Take the tail, fold over the middle, and pin in place. From underneath pin both sides of the "bow" in place. Tug on the loops until you have a perfect, messy bow!
