Discover 6 of the most stunning hairstyles you can create with a simple bow 🎀
As much as we love the crazy and creative hairstyles that hit the catwalks during fashion month every season, few of them actually make it into our everyday style choices. However, one look to come out of fashion week that we can definitely get on board with is the hair ribbon trend.
Incredibly versatile, this simple yet chic accessory can instantly spruce up even the most basic of hairstyles – from the most plain ponytails to elaborate updos. So if you’re looking to liven up your look and #BeatHairBoredom, this is the hair craze for you!
How to wear the catwalk hair ribbon trend IRL
Okay, let’s get down to the basics with a beginner-friendly low ponytail. Now, don’t go thinking that this is a boring style, because it’s one of the quickest ways to spruce up your mane!
Upgrade your style in an instant by brushing your hair back into a sleek, low ponytail, securing it with a hairband and then tying a ribbon of your choice around the base of your pony. Now, will you stick to a fash-pack monochrome style or get playful with a multicoloured bow?!
Editor’s tip: For a salon-smooth finish, apply 1-2 pumps of serum (we love the Toni&Guy Shine Gloss Serum, as it has a super lightweight formula) and work through your lengths before styling. This will help to control any flyaways and prevent frizz from cropping up throughout the day.
Short on time but still want your hair to look cute? Braids are best when you’re in a rush, as they don’t require any heat styling whatsoever, so you can plait and go!
This look shows that even the most basic 3-strand braid can easily be jazzed up with a ribbon. But if you’re feeling confident, why not play around with other braiding styles, like Dutch, French or fishtail plaits?
For a more effortless, romantic effect, don’t forget to loosen a few pieces of hair around your hairline for a more lived-in look.
Half-up, half-down style
BRB, adding this breathtaking bridal style to our Pinterest wedding board, pronto! The best part is, although this half-up look is obviously the ultimate wedding day hairstyle, it would also work just as well for a glam night out with the girls!
Editor’s tip: To give your locks maximum volume where its needed, we recommend sprinkling a little of the Toni&Guy Root Lift Sculpting Powder into your roots before styling. It’ll instantly give lift to limp locks and give you that Bardot-like body!
Lazy girls everywhere, this one’s for you! Buns are the ultimate no-fuss hairstyle, but what would you say if we told you there was a way to make this well-loved ‘do look as stylish as it is practical?
If you’re a loyal follower of fashion, you’ll know that the headband trend is also making a bit of a comeback this season, so why not tackle 2 trends at once with a chic ribbon headband?
You don’t need to go out and buy a fancy headband, as all you need to do is find a thick piece of ribbon and tie it around your head behind your ears: et voila, instant sass!
If you’re looking for a put-together look for a work event or cocktail party, this trendy tuck style is just what the doctor ordered. With a low tuck, wrap effect and sweet bow detail, there’s so many gorgeous components to this look that we don’t even know where to start!
