Bow Tie Braid, Braided Hairstyle For Long Hair Tutorial

You’ll love this adorable braided hairstyle with bows made from hair! This hairstyle would be great for school, recitals, weddings, flower girls, church, communions, and other special occasions.

This bow braid hair tutorial and basic concept was inspired by a photo we saw on an awesome Instagram account by @mylittlebraids. We thought the lace braids and feathered strands were so delicate and beautiful, we had to give it a try! The elastic bows sitting centered between the 2 lace braids look a lot like little “bow ties” to us. So cute! If you like this hairstyle, you may want to check out our “bow tie fishtail braid” from a few years ago which is also a very cute style using hair to make bow ties!

We placed the bow tie braid in a headband type design, along the front / side of her head and ended the style in a hair wrapped side ponytail. Of course, you could end this hairstyle with a low side bun, or braid as well. I’m thinking a pull through braid or elastic braid in the ponytail would be very cute. Adding beads or jewels to the center of each bow braid would be so pretty as well.

The trick to getting this hairstyle to turn out well is taking tiny sections (micro braiding) as you are creating the initial braids. If you want to use larger sections, you could always make 1 or 2 hair bows instead of 3 though!

The tiny elastics we used in the center of our bows are “Goody” brand. Example:

We always get questions about where we got our styling head or mannequin when we use her for hair tutorials. We found it on Amazon, similar to this one:
