We’re all going to be wearing hair bows this summer

At least, according to Pinterest

BEAUTYcrew Beauty Editor / December 22 2021

If you thought you’d retired your hair bow in high school, then have we got some breaking news for you: bows are back, baby. And in a big way too.

According to the folks over at Pinterest, searches for hair bows have increased by 97 per cent in the last month alone. 

So dust off your best velvet number because as far as summer’s concerned the hair bow is one of this season’s hottest hair trends

We’re amping up the cool factor though, pairing the traditional hair accessory with messy buns – AKA one of the party season hair trends the Edwards and Co team warned us to prepare for last month.

Need some inspiration to whet your appetite before you start online shopping for a bow of your own? Lucky for you, a number of your favourite celebrities have been seen touting the girlish accessory on red carpets for a while now:

Briar Clark got her start in the media industry in 2017, as an intern for Marie Claire and InStyle. Since then, her keen interest in fashion and beauty has landed her gigs as a Digital Content Producer and Beauty Editor with titles like Girlfriend, Refinery29, BEAUTYcrew and beautyheaven. She loves the way seemingly innocuous topics like skin care and style have the ability to put a smile on people’s faces or make them think about themselves a little differently. A big believer in self love and experimentation, Briar has made a point of becoming the Australian beauty industry’s unofficial guinea pig for unusual treatments and daring hair trends. When she’s not testing out the latest beauty launches, Briar is big on broadening her horizons, mostly in the form of food but she’s also partial to travelling to new destinations both near and far (and of course, allocating an extra bag to bring their best beauty offerings home with her).
