Braided hairstyles are experiencing a modern cool-girl renaissance, with styles ranging from face-framing tendrils to braided ponies in the Medusa hairstyle. And with the holiday season quickly approaching, a new style—the bow tie braid—is making its way into the conversation.
Keep scrolling if braids are making you bored. There are so many unique hairstyles and looks that can be made with the bow tie braid because it is so lovely and vibrant!
This basic concept could accent updos, ponytails, down hairstyles, half-ups, and other hairstyles. Depending on how you wear it, this braid may be appropriate for formal and casual occasions, such as prom, work, or school. Here are some styles you will love to try.
Side Bow Tie Braid
This is a perfect hairstyle for the bride. To replicate, you must wrap portions of your hair around a two-inch curling iron in the same direction. Once the hair has cooled, soften the curls with a brush before using hairspray to give them the final shape you want. The intricate bow on the right side is the accent of the hairstyle.
Curly Ponytail Bow Tie Braid
This is another bow tie braid you’ll love to try. The hair is well-packed, like a traditional ponytail, but it is accented with a bow-tie design. Who needs a headband when your hair can give you that shape?
Multi Bow Tie Braids
What’s better than a single bow tie? Plenty!!
This hairstyle might be challenging to pull off, but it is absolutely gorgeous. Regardless, it looks simple, like the hairstyle one needs on a busy day. You don’t have to do too much after it is made.
Half-Up Bow Tie Pony
Do you want to try something stunning for your long hair? This style is all you need. The hairstyle is made like a ponytail, but the bow tie is introduced and then braided to make the bow tie stand out. The half-up bow ensemble is really beautiful.
Minimalist Bow Tie Braids
This is another everyday bow tie braid that is relatively easy to pull off. You just have to part your hair, make two big braids, and instead of braiding it all the way down, you free the tips and make your bow tie. That simple!
Tips and tricks:
- It will be easier to maintain symmetry if you use the same number of strands on each side of the braid when gathering them into the elastic and taking them back out.
- To help control flyaways, apply hair products to each strand.
- Take small sections as you work to make the lace braids on either side of the bows look neater and better.
