How to style a hair bow as an adult
This look can be as glam or as laid back as you want but a black velvet hair bow is always going to be feminine. Keep your outfit sleek and womanly rather than too voluminous or youthful for this style to avoid looking like a kid. This Fall / Winter its black velvet bows, both long and mini that are on trend for a more polished, grown up look.
How to style hair bows for adults
- Copy Hailey Bieber and tie or slip a bow hair clip into the top of a high sleek ponytail.
- Tie into the bottom of a braid.
- Slide it into a braid at the nape of your neck instead of the bottom if you find it falls out of the bottom or have fine hair.
- Clip into a reverse braid as seen at Chanel (above).
- Do a sleek high ponytail, create bobbles along the length of the hair with clear hair elastics and tie a mini bow to cover each hair elastic like Tessa Thompson (photo below).
- Slide into the back of a half up, half down style (scroll down).
