4 Ways To Rock A Hair Bow

Think hair bows are reserved for little girls under 7 and Blair Waldorf-types only? Think again! Hair bows are totally back in style and a quick and easy way to add a little sass to your hairstyle. They’re much different than the hair bows of the 80s and come in all sorts of fun colors and patterns too. Here, we’ve got 4 fun ways to rock a hair bow, no matter what style you’re after.

1. Accentuate an Updo

Try a hairband with a floral or bow-like accessory that’s titled to the side so the adornment doesn’t compete with the updo; it should accent it. Even if it’s a formal event, your hairbow doesn’t have to match your dress so don’t be afraid to experiment with fun colors!

2. Channel Your Bohemian Side

3. Wear it
