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

Get the iron out! The Short & Flat is not the latest from the hipsters at the coffee shop, it's the latest bow style. Using a large width ribbon, iron it out and keep it as flat and rigid as possible. Oversized is the name of the game. 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 brings extra warmth in winter, while satin give shine!
Try something new, rock your bow with a fishtail plait or a ponytail. It can also be used to fix a bun or a classic ponytail. Bows are the most versatile of accessories for any style.

Style 3 : Long & Lean

We love the long and lean version on a thinner ribbon, left to frame a ponytail in the length. Remember to treat your ponytail to some winter love to add a boost of light and vitality to your look. Try L'Oréal Professionnel's Pro Fiber to Recover, Re-vive and Re-Create with its Aptyl 100 to give your hair some salon love at home. Essential for dry or damaged hair, or winter tired lacklustre locks...

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 any occasion whether you're in the boardroom, with the family or out at night. The rule? Keep it short and sweet, and keep it neat.
