This trend isn't just for our little girls, though there are many adorable ways to add bows into your daughter's hair. Women of Hollywood and other fashion influencers are showing us that hair bows for adults are a style that should and will be represented.
It's not just little girls anymore who get to enjoy this sweet hair accessory, and even though all of those styles would look fabulous on your daughter, don't think that you can't incorporate them into your wardrobe as well.
I'm going to brag a little and say that I've been pretty darn good about sticking to my New Year's resolution. I wanted to make more of an effort on my appearance and I've actually been doing it! It isn't easy when I'm juggling hectic mornings with my kiddos, but most days I'm getting it done. I even had a little makeover a few weeks ago with a new hair cut and color (I'd never colored my hair before so this was BIG for me), and I knew I needed some new products in my daily routine to mix things up a bit. It's easy for me to get into a rut and rely on the same products year after year, so I wanted to shake things up and branch out. I did just that with a little help from Target.
There's a long list of new Unilever personal care products at Target and I had a field day with them. I've been loving TRESemme hair care products lately, so I grabbed the new TRESemme Botanique collection. I also got some Dove Dry Oil Moisture Body Wash featuring a specially designed formula with Moroccan Argan oil to leave dry skin softer and smoother after just one wash. Dove Dry Oil actually replenishes 12x more skin natural nutrients than competitors. Since I'm a good wife, and I'm on a roll with this bragging thing, I also got my husband the new Dove Men+Care Oil Control Body Wash. This body wash can even be used on the face so that cuts one more step out of his morning routine. We're all about time savers here! It helps address oily skin without over drying thanks to the Kaolin Clay in the formulation.
Now that I've got my new hairstyle and color, I'm making sure to take good care of it and I've been thrilled with the results I've gotten from adding TRESemme Botanique into my daily routine. This collection was designed to nourish and replenish, offering gentle cleansing and lightweight conditioning to provide moisturization without weighing hair down. Since my hair is rather long, I always prefer products that promise to rinse clean without adding extra weight. I found this to be true of the Botanique collection, and it smells amazing! It leaves my hair silky smooth and manageable so it's easy to style into one of my favorite hairdos - an easy hair bow. This hairstyle looks so pretty and it's so easy to do - even with little ones grabbing at your ankles!
I totally love your new hair color! It looks rich and healthy. This style is adorable! I can't wait to see if my hair is long enough to do this- I guess I could do a twist in back of its not long enough for a bow. I've always had great results with TRESseme products too. I love the smell, too!
If you have a little girl who is your daughter or niece, you can create a hairstyle using beautiful, colorful, and patterned hair bows. Most little girls love getting dolled up and the addition of hair bows makes them super excited!
Hair bows have been around for so long that we have lost count. Hair bows are versatile. You can wear them on your hair, dress, around your neck, as earrings and necklaces, and as an accessory on your shoes, and so many more amazing ways that again, we lost count!
However, it is not necessary to pair hair bows with dresses. Your little girl can wear a hair bow with any outfit. Whether it is a shirt and jeans, overalls, jumpsuit, or tuxedo, depending on the theme of the wedding or occasion, you can place a hair bow in her hair.
If your little girl has curly or wavy hair, you can create a hairstyle using a hair bow. You can leave her hair open, but take one side of her and place a hair bow to hold the hair in place. You want to use the biggest hair bow possible.
Well, the size of the hair bows you choose for your little girl depends on how old she is, but it should be slightly larger, as we are going for that show stopping look! Perhaps, go for either a four-inch, six-inch, or eight-inch hair bow. You can choose either a solid or patterned hair bow.
If your little girl has long and thick hair, you can tie her hair in a top ponytail, securing it with a pony, hairpins, and accessorizing it with a hair bow of your choice. Your little girl will not only look cute, but glamorous as well!
Do you like braided hairstyles? If you do, you can consider this hairstyle for your little girl. Make a single or double braid or braid her entire hair. If you decide to braid her entire hair, you can add small hair bows all over her hair. If you are creating a single or double braid, use one or two hair bows.
Once you have picked her dress and hairstyle, you can shop for hair bows. If it is your wedding and there are several little girls in your family, you can create a theme using hair bows. All the little girls at the wedding can wear a pretty dress and hair bows in their hair.
After the French Revolution extravagance in dress and hairstyle was frowned upon and hair bows were rarely worn. By the 1800s it became common for male children to wear hair bows tying hair at the nape of the neck.
Meanwhile, Boy George, identifying as male, wore a hair bow during this period to perform femininity. In doing so, he highlighted the hair bow as something socially considered as limited to feminine presentation, but not necessarily limited to a female body.
Wendy O. Koopa of Super Mario fame relies mainly on a big pink polka dot hair bow (even though she has no hair), but gender is also indicated with a beaded necklace, large lips and long eyelashes. Super Mario character Birdo wears a large pink hair bow tied onto her head (like Wendy, the pink dinosaur does not have hair) and has been hailed as the first transgender game character to hit screens.
It's probably been awhile since you wore a bow in your hair, but with many looking to their old American Girl Dolls for the comfort of nostalgia (and outfit ideas) and the rise of the balletcore aesthetic this year, it's understandable why hair bows are suddenly everywhere again.
On red carpets and runways, celebrities and models are finishing off their blowouts, ponytails, and half-up half-down hairstyles with giant bows made of ribbon, velvet, and even rhinestones. Chanel placed giant black bows on the top of models' heads at its Fall 2022 Haute Couture show, while Elle Fanning added a shiny beaded bow to her flaxen waves before hitting a red carpet premiere at the 2022 Cannes Film Festival
The beauty of this hair accessory trend is that it's universal: You can add a bow to any hairstyle regardless of your hair type and length. And bows can be as expensive as you want them to be: you can buy some ribbon for a few cents at a fabric store or splurge on a designer logo one.
The easiest way to incorporate a hair bow into your look? Place one on the crown of your head. At Chanel's Fall 2022 Haute Couture show, models wore their hair in wind-blown waves and a center part so the hair accessory didn't look too prim and proper.

We had the answer with this cute hair bow bun. Reluctantly, she agreed to be our guinea pig. There's nothing wrong with the classic bun look, but you see it everywhere and frankly, we're bored with it. Where's the flair?
2. Loop your hair through the elastic and on the last pull through, don't pull your hair all the way through and instead create a loop, leaving the ends of your hair pointing toward your forehead.

Cardi B likes big bows and cannot lie, or so it seems. It appears that the rapper's actual hair was used to create a massive bow that sits on the crown of her head. The hairstylist behind this look, Mia Jackson, better known as Tokyo Stylez, shared a four-part photo collage of the singer's big hair bow via Instagram on February 22. You can check out Cardi's latest hair look below.
As seen in the photos, Cardi's big hair bow was also joined by two other fabulous beauty moments: some fierce winged eyeliner and a set of stiletto-shaped cobalt blue nails. Erika La'Pearl, the rapper's go-to makeup artist, was responsible for making that cat-eye come to life alongside Cardi's larger-than-life hairstyle. Per La'Pearl's Instagram post of the look, she used Pat McGrath's Perma Precision Liquid Eyeliner to line the eyes. She used several of the brand's other products on the face as well. Meanwhile, the nail artist behind Cardi's nails is sadly unknown.
Now, back to the topic of hair bows.
