As someone who has been adorning their signature half-up, half-down hairdo with a bow since the womb, you can imagine how excited I am that hair bows are having a major moment right now. It makes sense that bows came back with a bang since TikTok started salivating over the Plazacore aesthetic and American Girl vibes for a hot second.
The delicate and joyful hairstyle has been embraced by the red carpet, social media, fashion week — plus my friends and randos I’ve passed on the street. Even Ariana Grande was ahead of the trend with her bridal hair. And who could forget Hailey Bieber’s 2019 Met Gala bow look?
The great thing about hair bows is that they’re a wildly versatile hair accessory. You could clip a small barrette bow to one side of your head, or you could use a bow scrunchie to tie your hair back in a low ponytail. And, of course, you can gather your front tresses and clip them in the back for the classic (and my personal favorite) hair bow style.
Because there are so many different kinds of bows and styling options out there, I decided to help you out. After all, I’ve made it my mission to make sure everyone has a hair bow in their rotation before the next season of Bridgerton drops.
Scroll below to embrace the hair bow trend and shop some of the best hair bows out there.
