As a beauty editor, it’s my job to look out for the hair trends that we will all be wearing next. And over the past couple of months, there has been one particular trend that has shown no sign of stopping: hair bows.

Hot off the back of the coquette and balletcore trends, I’ve seen satin ribbons and velvet bows all over my feed. You’ll have no doubt seen it too. Over the festive season, I couldn’t open up my Instagram without seeing ribbons elegantly tied onto Christmas trees, on cocktail glasses, or bows clipped into ponytails and half-up half-down hairstyles alike. In fact, we saw everyone putting bows on just about everything. I even saw someone tie a pink ribbon on their chicken nuggets.

The good news is that this trend isn’t just for the festive season—it’s a classic trend that is here to stay. And its one of the easiest—yet chicest—ways to update your hairstyle with minimum effort. Whether you opt for tiny micro-ribbons tied onto braids, or a plush velvet bow clipped onto a low ponytail, there’s a style that works for every hair type and outfit. Another plus? It’s one of the most affordable trends to jump on, whether you buy a reel of ribbon and DIY, or opt for ready-made hair bows to tie or clip into your hair, you don’t have to spend loads to make this look expensive.

If you’re ready to embrace some hair bow hairstyles, scroll ahead for the chicest looks we’ve saved and the best hair bows to recreate the looks.

Extra-long, thin ribbons are ideal for tying at the base of your hairstyle, allowing the ends to fall freely.

Such a simple yet fun party hairstyle to liven up a simple look.
