How to Tie Your Hair with a Ribbon How to Tie Your Hair with a Ribbon How to Tie Your Hair with a Ribbon

Ribbons are no longer just for little girls—they’re the newest cool-girl hair trend. A thin black ribbon is a chic touch to any monochromatic outfit while a thick, brightly-colored ribbon that ties in with a color you’re wearing is a fun addition to any look. Whether you’re trying to revive limp locks with dry shampoo, styling your locks for a formal occasion, or going for a dramatic super-straight look, a ribbon adds just the right amount of youthfulness to any hair style. Below, find four ways to wear a ribbon in your hair.

1. THE SIMPLE HEADBAND

If you’re trying to revive second day hair or just looking to add something to your natural hair texture, use a ribbon as a makeshift headband. The quick style will keep your hair out of your face and look chic in the process.

What you’ll need:

L’Oréal Paris Elvive Extraordinary Clay Dry Shampoo

Ribbon

Get the look by following these simple steps:

STEP 1: GIVE YOUR HAIR SOME VOLUME

Use a dry shampoo around your roots to give your hair some lift.

STEP 2: CREATE THE HEADBAND

Starting at the back of your neck, bring the two ends of the ribbon around to the top of your head. Secure the ribbon with a knot and then rotate it so the knot is hidden by your hair.

2. THE SLEEK PONYTAIL

High and tight is the new way to wear your power pony. Contrast the dramatic style with a feminine bow in the color of your choice.

What you’ll need:

STEP 2: CREATE A PONYTAIL

Secure your ponytail tightly to your head with a hair tie. 

STEP 3: TIE A BOW

Using a piece of ribbon, tie a bow around the top of your ponytail.

STEP 4: TAME FLYAWAYS

Use a styling hair gel to tame any baby hairs around your hairline, creating an ultra-sleek look.

STEP 3: TIE A BOW

Using a ½-inch thick piece of ribbon, tie a bow around the hair tie.

STEP 4: SET YOUR STYLE

Lock the look in with shine-enhancing hair spray.

4. THE BRAID

 A ribbon is the unexpected way to upgrade your braid. Choose a color similar to your own hair for a subtle touch or go for bold with a neon contrast.

What you’ll need:

Ribbon

Hair tie

Get the look by following these simple steps:

STEP 1: DETANGLE YOUR HAIR

STEP 3: ATTACH THE RIBBON

Secure the ribbon to the hair tie.

STEP 4: BRAID

Split your ponytail into three sections, one of which includes the ribbon. Braid as you normally would but being careful to keep the ribbon with its section of hair. Secure with a hair tie.
