lady gaga hairbow

Last fall, I was hoping to make a Lady Gaga costume dollar store style to share with you, but I ran out of time. Thankfully, the smart cookies over at the Bowdabra Blog created an awesome Lady Gaga-inspired hair bow with $2 in supplies from the dollar store. The tutorial is great, and the final product looks amazing! Do you think I’m too old to rock one of these bows to the grocery store? Don’t answer that! If you think you’re too old to rock the hair bow like Gaga, maybe make one for your little girl (grade school through teen, I would guess!) or save it for your Gaga Halloween costume.

Lady Gaga

Here’s the inspiration photo. One of Lady Gaga’s more tame looks! You can find the hair headbands in the dress-up aisle of the dollar store toy section. You can also get higher-quality hair at a beauty supply store (like Sally’s).

Project Estimate:

  • 2 toy dress-up hair headbands, $2
  • Rubber bands, on hand
  • Wire, on hand
  • Hot glue gun and glue sticks, on hand

Total: $2 and up

The Bowdabra tool was used to make the bow, and it looks like it would make the project super easy.
