How To Make A Hair Bow

Step 2: Mark the middle of the ribbon with a pen or pencil. This will not show once the ribbon is tied.

Step 3: Make the top of the figure 8 placing the end of the ribbon over the top of the middle mark you made. The loop should look like an awareness ribbon loop. If you are leaving tails, leave the desired tail length past the center mark

Step 4: Make the bottom loop of the figure 8 just like you did with the top loop. Again, if you are leaving tails, allow them to go past the middle mark for the desired length.
