Bows are sexy, coquettish, the most alluring of accessories, as long as you wear them the right way, with a heavy dose of sixties influence. Take your inspiration from sex kitten Brigitte Bardot. Add some volume, make that lots of volume. Rough up your texture, think bedhead. Make sure your bow is big. Add a pink lip or a smokey eye. Break some hearts. Learn how in the style notes. –– Laura Martin

The combination of wild texture with a refined bow works for styles both up and down. It could become your signature look. Click the style notes for step to creating it. –– Laura Martin
