Bow down, because your simple spring accessory has landed! With weather warming up down under, you may want to start securing your hair back in style. Look no further than the simple, yet ever versatile hair ribbon.
As a staple on the runways and red carpets of the world for a few years now, the hair ribbon has been reinvented from a school girl's accessory to one that can accompany almost any outfit or aesthetic. Celebrities have lead the way by using hair ribbons to elevate a range of everyday looks such as ponytails, updos, buns, top knots.
If you're feeling a bit hesitant about trying this trend, we recommend starting simple. Thin black ribbons are a great way to dip your toe (or hair) in, as a chic and simple nod to the hair bow trend. Try weaving one through a plait, or leaving it undone on either side of a ponytail, so you have elevated your style without going all Lady Gaga (unless of course that's your thing). Ribbons are available in a range of materials these days too, such as velvet, satin, lace, and our personal favourite: leather. Wearing a ribbon in your hair is also a fantastic way to soften a strong style, or add a touch of whimsy to your outfit.
What our stylists say:
The hair ribbon can be as subtle or obvious as you choose to make it. Select a ribbon colour that complements (or contrasts) your hair colour, and don't be afraid to experiment with different textures too! If you're finding that your ribbons are slipping through your hair style, try incorporating some texture into your hair beforehand. from L'Oréal is a great option to add volume and texture while providing your hair with just the right amount of grip too.
