How Celebs Are Ensuring the Hair Bow Trend Keeps Going in 2019

Every year, Hollywood hair trends are equal parts innovative and nostalgia-fueled, like celebs in hair bows or ribbons. In the case of 2018, it was the latter that reigned supreme. For instance, we watched celebs including Hailey Baldwin and Kim Kardashian West make the oversize scrunchie a high-fashion add-on, while Olivia Culpo, Lucy Hale and so many more put their hair into a time machine and ventured back to the ’90s for a blunt bob.

And if that weren’t enough, experts are predicting that some of these throwback looks will only grow in popularity next year. One thing’s for sure: One of them will likely include the use of hair bows or ribbons, since A-listers can’t seem to stop wearing them. Though we typically associate this accessory with the lewks we wore as children — like the classic pigtails — they can also exude a mature elegance when incorporated into anything from a ponytail to intricate updo.

And now that we’re knee-deep in another holiday season, we can’t think of a better reason to spotlight some of our favorite red carpet hair bow moments, as at least one is bound to serve as holiday party inspo.
