Start by taking a long red ribbon and clipping a claw clip to the center of it.

Tie the ribbon around the claw clip so that the two are securely connected to one another.

Then, tie the ribbon to make a bow.

Tie your hair as if you were going to make a half-ponytail, but don’t pull your hair all the way through so that you’re left with a bun.

Dividing bun

5. Divide the bun

Divide the bun into two sections.

Twisting bun

6. Twist the bun

Now, twist the bun so that you have one section of hair on top and one on the bottom.

Here is the finished look, and I love how the ribbon beautifully cascades down my hair.

Tying the ribbon to the clip to make a bow is such a genius hack, as it is much easier than having to fiddle trying to tie a bow at the back of my head.

Overall, I give this hairstyle a 10 out of 10! Give it a go for yourself, and let me know what you think!
