As we cozy up to the festive season, it’s time to deck the halls – and our hair – with bows and ribbons! The nostalgia-infused trend that once adorned our childhood ponytails is making a grand, revamped entrance into the fashion scene of winter hairstyle trends. From the runways to red carpets and our social feeds, bows and ribbons are weaving their magic into hairstyles and making quite a statement.
Imagine a world where bows aren’t just those perfect little knots from yesteryears. This time, they’ve transformed into an array of lengths, materials, and charmingly jagged edges, adding flair to every hairstyle. From New York Fashion Week to TikTok tutorials, they’re the darling embellishments bringing a touch of whimsy to our locks.
Remember Karlie Kloss gracing the Met Gala in a sleek ponytail clasped with a black bow? The understated elegance, curated by stylist Irinel de León, echoed the night’s essence: simplicity intertwining with beauty. And beauty it was indeed!
Hairstyling gurus have unanimously sounded the bow-and-ribbon alarm. Picture this: silk ribbons gracefully tying off ponytails or weaving elegantly into braids, creating an aura of delicate romance.
Need an instant style upgrade? Hair bows are the answer! Add them to ponytails, buns, or half-up, half-down styles for an elevated and chic look. Plush velvet, satin, or ribbons – take your pick!
Meanwhile, vintage-inspired hair clips and accessories are making a charming comeback. “Individuals are opting for pearls, bows, barrettes, and more to accentuate their looks,” Amelia Thompson says.
Sophia Bolotina, a professional hairdresser, vouches for big, bold hair clips, velvet headbands, and silk scarves to amp up any outfit with a touch of glam this winter season.
And if you’re aiming for a touch of subtle glam, Ryan Thompson, editor at Men’s Flair, suggests accessorized braids. Picture velvet ribbons or delicate metallic accents elegantly woven into your braids.
Celebrities, hairstylists, and fashion designers are diving headfirst into this trend. Sarah Jessica Parker, the epitome of style, has unveiled a collection featuring stylish headbands and beaded barrettes. Meanwhile, Justine Marjan’s collaboration with Kitsch brings sparkling bobby pins and headbands that are pure hair goals. And let’s not forget Simone Rocha‘s pearl-embellished hair accessories, setting the bar high for chic adornments.
So, if you’re looking to gift yourself a sprinkle of fashion magic this holiday season, adorn your hair with ribbons and bows. After all, a dash of whimsy and nostalgia never goes out of style!
