The Chic Ribbon Ponytail Trend

I recently removed my extensions and am so happy to have my natural hair back. While I loved the long locks, I couldn’t do certain basic hairstyles as easily, such as a high or mid ponytail, or even my go-to top knot. One trend that I couldn’t wait to try once I could do a pony again, was the chic ponytail ribbon hairstyle that I’ve seen about the runways and red carpets over the last few months.

I love the chic touch of a velvet or silk ribbon, which in my opinion is the perfect way to jazz up a simple ponytail, and even makes it a touch dressier. The best part, is it doesn’t take any extra hairstyling skills to achieve! I would recommend starting with a light wave in your hair to give your pony some texture and volume. Do your normal part (mine is in the middle), and secure your ponytail with a regular hair tie. Fasten a simple bow around the hair tie, and voilΓ‘! I pulled out some extra pieces in the front to give it a more casual feel, but you could easily pull all your hair back in a sleek pony for a more black-tie appropriate look.

I recommend buying a high quality ribbon, as cheaper/shiny ribbons can tend to look a little tacky. Going to a wedding or formal event? Go for black silk or velvet. If you’re just looking to elevate an everyday casual look, try a dark brown velvet ribbon like the one I’m wearing here, for an instant dose of chicness!

    Hi! I think burgundy or dark green would look gorgeous with black hair. There are no rules so have fun experimenting! xx, Louise

  • Last night was so different to any other Hollywood event I’ve ever attended. Powerful, awesome women came together to celebrate the work that has been done since the #MeToo movement began. Yes there’s still a long way to go, but last night left me with food for thought and a sense of hope. It made me more determined than ever that my daughter and her peers grow up in a world that respects and values women as an equal sex. During a stunning, candlelit dinner, there were readings of letters, poems and articles on stage by the likes of Charlize Theron, Anna Kendrick, Tiffany Haddish, Amber Heard and Annie Lennox. Being informed is important, but sharing that information and keeping the conversation going, is crucial.
