Boutique Hair Bow Tutorial
I did starch my ribbon prior to starting this bow.
Take the ribbon (I’m using 1 1/2″ ribbon in this tutorial) and make the form proven above, always be sure to keep the “right side” (ie- printed facet up in center). Ensure the lengthy facet of the ribbon is in the again with the longer facet of the ribbon hanging right down to the left.
Carry the lengthy side of the ribbon up over the existing ribbon in order that the long side of the ribbon is now up and to the correct.
Take the lengthy aspect of the ribbon (that is up and to the best) and convey it back down BEHIND the highest piece of ribbon in the center of the bow. The long piece will now be hanging down in direction of the middle of the bow.
Take the piece of ribbon that was hanging down towards the middle/left backside and produce it to the higher left aspect of the bow. This can be a superb time to make any adjustments to your bow to make certain all the loops are even.
Step 5) Turn your bow sideways (horizontal) and in the middle carefully fold the bow (see picture above). For wider ribbon it’s best to fold it so that there are three peaks in the center.
Utilizing your fine gauge wire tightly wrap the wire around the middle of the bow and twist it on the again facet of the bow and trim off the long items. Press the wire down so it’s not sharp.
Singe one end of the smaller ribbon (I at all times use an extended candle lighter- fray check is costly and I’ve found it to not work as properly) to stop fraying and starting on the again of the bow the place the wire is tightened and cut off, glue one end of your small ribbon. Wrap the ribbon round the center of the bow. Trim off excess ribbon and singe once more and glue down on back of ribbon. It’s necessary to completely end the bow prior to attaching it to the clip. Especially for the alligator clips. Some clips are made with the center ribbon wrapped round all the clip and this causes the clip to not shut fully and the clip won’t stay in as well. This way the “seal” on the clip is tight.

Tear off a chunk of the wax paper and fold it over several instances. Clip the alligator clip to the wax lace front remy human hair wigs paper and load the clip (the angled facet) up with hot glue. And stick your bow to the glue covered clip. Allow the glue to dry completely and then peel away the wax paper that’s in the clip. Trimming away any excess that can be seen from the front of the bow. This could leave a really easy and even surface contained in the clip so that it will hold the hair! Trim and singe the ends of the ribbon with the lighter… watch out though… simply barely get the top of the ribbon close to the flame… the ribbon will turn black if burnt.
