Long before GAGA we had hair bows. I love them! As a hairstylist the sectioning and how-to is a little hard to explain as we aim for perfection; lots of sectioning, back-brushing, smoothing, spraying and pinning.... whew!
This is an image from my portfolio that I did hair and makeup on, roughly in 2004. Photo by Arline Malakian.
I guaranty that the time and effort involved was more than the youtube tutorials out there but I was VERY impressed with this one that I had to share.

bebexo I believe is her youtube ' handle' - her method is easy and keeps in some texture so more wearable than the high fashion version.
This is my hair bow - it withstood trying on clothes. I thought wearing my hair up would deter me from shopping.... nope. I like the deconstructed bow, a bit more 'day time'.
