    I love it! I’ve always thought hair bows were super cute but most be way too complicated (I suck at doing hair!) but I think I could actually do this! Great pictures, they make this look really easy to follow.

    Practice DOES make perfect. ;) Was your hair washed right before you tried it? Sometimes that makes it harder to work with.

    L, give it another try! I had trouble my first few times, but eventually did get the hang of it. Good luck!
