Bow Bun

1 Posted by - May 15, 2013 - Hair & Beauty, Videos

Dudes, if I didn’t love you I wouldn’t do this stuff to myself. Today I’m trying out the bow bun. I know you’ve seen it. It’s been all over Pinterest.

(If you can’t see the video, click here.)

And, if you want to see a real tutorial about how this works, there’s this one from Mr. Kate.

    Can you not tuck the end into the rubber band rather than trying to pin it?

    So, I know that you had to take out the “fucking up pins…” part and I really understand it plus, I don’t wanna be mad at you or anything because I want you to earn money 🙂 Loads of money, haha. But still, I kinda miss it… so here it goes: FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCK. Aaaah already feeling better. Also, I think that “failing at” doesn’t have quite the same meaning as “fucking up” because it kinda sounds as if you actually, genuinely tried and… let’s be honest. There are times when… well… there might be a lack of motivation to go to the grocery store 😉 Anyway, I still love that test – and who wants a bow on his/her head anyway? Saying fuck and wearing my hair in a cutsie little bow just doesn’t match.

      I agree wholeheartedly….that’s one of the first things I noticed – that she didn’t say “fucking up Pinterest pins so you don’t have to!” 🙁 Oh Sonja………….say it ain’t so??? Are you giving in to the “politically correct” machine??? I’m sad. But I still love ya girlfriend!!!!!!1

    For just a second I was like, “oh shit she’s got it!” Nope.

    Is it sad that the first thing I noticed was that you were failing at pins instead of of fucking up pins? I really honestly kinda missed it.

      No one noticed it on last week’s video. 😉

        I did. I just didn’t say anything. I was disappointed until I read your post yesterday explaining that penis jokes and fucks were still going to be in the blog.

    I love love love your eye makeup! (and pink hair!)

    I would so rather subscribe to your posts and send you money every month than to watch you change who you are to make a buck from Lowes. (I do like Lowes though!) But I liked your raw blog, it’s the only one I follow.

    i think ur hair is too short. I have tried this hairstyle and it worked perfectly for me.

  • Kate George May 16, 2013 - 12:38 pm Reply

    I love watching your pins. It’s just like sitting in my BBF’s kitchen (or in this case bathroom. Although now that I’ve said that bathroom doesn’t seem quite right.)

    My hair is long. I am kind of tempted to try this and go about my daily activities to see how many people laugh in my face for having a giant ass bow of my own hair.
    Are you still growing your hair out? If you are, please try this again if a few months and film reactions to it! That would be awesome.

    I think it works better if your hair is a little wet… like most things 😉

    Bow worked well for my daughter’s hair but my hair it looks pretty much like yours but I have longer hair……found your blog about a month ago trying tonmake gummy worms….love it!!!Great job!!!

    I like how you spent a ridiculous amount of time brushing your hair up into a pony tail. why not just flip your head over and grab it? so much faster

    • Clark McGee May 17, 2013 - 11:44 am Reply

      “Just flip your head over and grab it” – I was going to make a funny remark about that, but it was too easy… So I’ll let everyone make their own now, haha

    There is a horrifying lack of ‘Fucks’ in this video…

  • Kaelyn May 18, 2013 - 11:22 am Reply

    My sister has really short hair, so she decided to do this with only half her hair. It did make the “bow” better, but she looked like a second grader… Or a prostitute going for the “I’m young and virginal” look…

  • Havana James May 19, 2013 - 12:19 am Reply

    For what it’s worth…I don’t mind the lack of “fucking” in your tag line. (hehe) At least I’ll be able to pull up your blog at work and laugh hysterically. I laugh at all the dumb asses who come to my job anyway but at least I can mask it better by enjoying your blog. BTW love the hair and eye make-up.

    Just learned about your blog from Wow Mom and I must say I am already hooked!

  • Fancy.Pants May 30, 2013 - 11:34 am Reply

    I’ve done this to my hair a lot! Several pins & no layers helps. 🙂

  • ome July 24, 2013 - 8:33 pm Reply

    it actually works with long hair! ive alredy done it!

  • theclerkinhell August 15, 2013 - 4:51 pm Reply

    This is quality shit. Thursdays at this firm are a godsend because no attorneys are here and I can finally get the bullshit smile and attitude off my face and laugh my ass off with a real smile watching this instead of hearing the secretaries plot how they will embarrass me yet again with my lack of legal skills. Thank you so much for making me laugh.
