Simple Accessory Trend Alert: 3 ways to style a bow

Thought you had your bow's annual quota for Christmas? Think again! The bow is here to stay for 2018. Velvet, silk – whatever the finish, it's THE trend to adopt.

Style 1 : Short & Flat

The 'Short & Flat' isn't the latest hipster coffee order – it's actually the hottest new bow style! Oversized is the name of the game with this bow. To recreate the look, take a large width ribbon and iron it out, keeping it as flat and rigid as possible. It's very size and style keeps it from being too classic and serious, giving it a hip and modern edge.

Style 2 : Any-Bow

Ribbons are all the rage again. Soft, smooth velvet ribbons brings a softer touch, while satin bows gives your look a high-shine finish! To give this look a new twist, try rocking your bow with a fishtail plait or a ponytail. It can also be used as a final touch on a bun or a classic ponytail.

Style 3 : Long & Lean

We love the long and lean version of a classic bow where the tail ends of the bow are left to frame a long ponytail by matching it in length. However in order to pull off this look, you'll want to make sure your pony is in great condition. If you're currently dealing with dry or damaged lacklustre locks then give it to some love by using theL'Oréal Professionnel's Pro Fiber range.

Style 4: Cute & Cropped

@anhcotran gives us a materclass on how to blend the classic velvet bow with a chignon. Using a beautifully simple and chic @tracehenningsen bow, it's the ideal go-to style for every occasion – from the boardroom to a night out on the town. The rule? Keep it short and sweet, and keep it neat.
