Hair bows are back and better than ever. Fall’s hottest hair accessory is making its way from the runway to the red carpet. Celebrity hairstylist Laurie Heaps created the perfect “Half Style” for actress Danielle Fishel this week, completing the partially up, half down look with a jet black, velvet bow. She tells us how she did it below.

To begin, I applied a cocktail of two key products after I shampooed and conditioned Danielle – a mixture of White Sands Liquid Texture Medium Thermal Spray to serve as a heat protectant (hair gets shinier as you use this spray with more heat!) and Redken’s Align 12 Protective Smoothing Lotion to work as a straightening balm. This product gives you more control over each section when drying while also strengthening the hair.

Once applied thoroughly and combed through from roots to ends, I dried her hair in large sections using a round brush and the Dyson Supersonic™ hair dryer.

I then curled her whole head with 1 1/2″ Curling Iron from Hot Tools for extra-large, bouncy waves. A barrel this size gives a continuous “S” shape, creating a loose, airy curl.

Next, I sectioned the hair in front of the ears and applied IGK’s Rich Kid Coconut Oil Gel and brushed it up into a high pony on the crown, securing it with a clear, elastic bungee.

For an extra sleek finish, I continued to smooth the hair down around the face with BioSilk’s Silk Therapy Firm Hold Finishing Spray and a toothbrush. This catches even the tiniest of baby hairs.

To complete her look, I added a bow from Henningsen & Co. Known as their Petite Rogue Bardot Bow, this accessory is a bold statement piece instantly adding elegance and flair to any hairstyle, particularly this half up, half down style. It is set on a matte-black clip which makes it the perfect bow to attach to a high, sectioned off ponytail like this.
