Retro-Glam Valentine’s Day Hair

Valentine’s Day is this Friday! What do you all have planned? If you have a special date or Galentine’s GNO we have the perfect hair tutorial for you today.

V Day Hair 2

You need a curling Iron, comb, brush, metal clips, bobby pins (optional), argan oil or serum (optional), and hairspray.

V Day Hair 3

Start by parting your hair where you would like to wear it. A deep side part looks best. Then section off the sides from the back.

V Day Hair 4

Take a 1-2 inch section and curl that section starting from the top working your way down to the bottom.

V Day Hair 5

Make sure to keep the curling iron horizontal. The key to this style is curling all the hair in the same direction.
V Day Hair 6

Once you complete a curl, wind it up and clip it with a metal clip, keeping the curl horizontal. Continue around the head until all the hair is curled and clipped.

V Day Hair 7

Spray with hairspray and let the curls cool down. Once cooled let all the hair down and brush the curls together. Add a drop or two of argan oil and work through the mid shaft and ends if you would like. Finish with a wide toothed comb until you notice the curl pattern forming. It should start to look like a loose S wave.
V Day Hair 8

Smooth your light side down and pin just behind the ear with bobby pins.

V Day Hair 9
Finish off with another spray of hair spray and you’re good to go.

Fashion Swap

Hello Everyone!

Hope you all had a wonderful start to the year! Today we are sharing a party we threw for two of our ladies here at We Heart Bows, Cherry and Clarissa. As fashion lovers, we decided it would be fun host a fashion swap party for the two birthday girls.  What a great way to get rid of clothing and accessories we were tired of and swap them for new things to refresh our wardrobe.

Our wonderful friend Loan offered her beautiful new salon as a venue. We found some great ideas on Pinterest and decided to make it Kate Spade inspired. We started off with a bright pink, black, white and gold color scheme. Paperless Post had the perfect Kate Spade New York invitations, pink and gold topped with a bow, of course. Here are some photos and details of the event. Enjoy!
