A Video Flashback from 2009: Hair Bows Ad

I was searching through some of my older Youtube video posts and found this one from early 2009. Thought you might enjoy it…we’ve come a long way since then! But it’s fun to see how things started out and hundreds of people have seen this video so that’s pretty cool. What do you think, is it too cheesy? :) You can be honest!  Even the OLD cover design of my very first hair bows course is shown at the end.  The graphics have certainly come a long way since then too.  How exciting to know that I still have customers returning to purchase new courses that I come out with a few times a year that have been with me since early 2009!

You should be the next happy customer! :) Check out the full DVD called “Secrets to Hair Bow Success” where I teach you 18 styles of hair bows that you can make with step by step complete video instructions which also include photo tutorials in a PDF manual as well.  I know you’ll LOVE it!

This is my most popular Youtube video on hair bow making of all time. It’s over 1 million views and has tons of comments and likes! I wanted to be sure to share it with you in case you hadn’t stumbled across it yet. It’s obvious that people LOVE simple and fun hair bows that can be made in about 5 minutes with just a few basic supplies.

I do use a hot glue gun (high temp version) because I feel that bonds ribbon the best and also allows the project to dry the quickest. Feel free to experiment with other types of craft glue like E6000 but the smell is a bit overwhelming and it does take quite some time to dry which is annoying when you want to complete a bow in just a few minutes.

Did you make a bow after watching the video? I’d love to hear about it! Let me know in the comments below.

This video shows you step by step how to make sprays for your layered bows. They are also called spikes, but it is the same thing. This is a layer that is added behind your main hairbow to surround it with spikes of ribbon.

You can use these sprays for a layer of a stacked boutique hair bow which are a very popular type of girls bow.

Sprays typically use a 5/8 inch wide ribbon (or wider). You can choose how many pieces of ribbon you want to use for them. Decide whether you want them to completely surround the main bow or if you’d just prefer to have a few on the left and right sides of the center. Here are some photos of bows that have a layer of spikes on them:

These hair bows were photos submitted by happy customers!  If you’d like to see more customer photos, check these out!

Layered bows are my absolute favorites since they are so unique and beautiful every time you make them!  Be sure to learn how to make hair bow sprays first then you’ll be one step closer to making awesome layered boutique bows for your special girl or even to sell.

I’m excited to share this video with you so you can learn how to make a bow out of ribbon. In this tutorial I’m using a 1.5 inch wide grosgrain ribbon. If you don’t have any and need to purchase some, visit your local craft store; I got mine at Michael’s. I also love the craft supplies at Hobby Lobby and really wish they had one closer to where I live!

This video is just one sample of the 18 hairbows you can learn how to make on “MORE Secrets to Bow Making Success”.
