Fun & Pretty Patriotic Style

Time:  15 minutes
Supplies:  brush/comb, bobby pins, patriotic bows (here's how to make them), red & blue markers, hair chalk, or hair mascara
Difficulty:  easy

Patriotic hairstyles aren't just for little girls...
Neither are bows.

You may have thought our post, promising a patriotic hairstyle using these darling bows, would be for little girls.
But guess what?
They look great on anyone.
Of course, they would look adorable on little girls with pigtails.  But don't think they wouldn't look great in a teen or adult hairstyle too.  
When you add them to the bumped half-up style, it's pretty and fun.

We painted the hair strands with a simple magic marker.  You can use them too if that's what you have on hand.  It washes out easily.  Or you can try hair chalk, or hair mascara.
If you missed our post on how to make the bows, here it is.
Happy Birthday, America.
