Kawaii Bow Tutorial

A bow is a popular accessory worn by kawaii lovers to make their whole look cuter and more eye-catching. And we, at Kawaii Philippines, are madly in love with bows! If you have noticed, even Kawaii Girl wears one! ^_^

Bows are so pretty to look at, can make a statement, and can go with any style may it be Lolita, Fairy or Decora fashion. Plus, they will never go out of style. Aside from hair accessories, bows can also be used as brooches, necklaces and other accessories that you can think of.

And because we have this unwavering addiction to bows, we’re spreading the bow love by sharing with you how to create our signature Kawaii Bow! Here are 9 easy steps for you to follow.
