Take a bow

Friday - - Fashion -

AS SEEN AT: At Tem­per­ley, chunky, black vel­vet rib­bon was tied round the hair, Alice in Won­der­land-style and se­cured in a bow just slightly off cen­tre at the back. Black vel­vet was also the rib­bon of choice at Tory Burch where hair was tied back into a pony at the nape of the neck and se­cured with an over­sized bow. At Emilia Wick­stead, Luke Her­sh­e­son, John Frieda’s cre­ative di­rec­tor, put the hair half up and dressed it with a long length of – you guessed it, black vel­vet rib­bon. WHAT TO ASK FOR: How you sport your rib­bon is to­tally up to you, but your hair length may play a part in how best to wear it. If you have long hair then the world is your rib­boned oys­ter, as you have enough hair to dis­guise where you tie and se­cure the rib­bon. Shorter hair lengths may be best opt­ing for the Tory Burch look. Check the length you need be­fore cre­at­ing your look – I use the gift wrap rib­bon from my on­line fash­ion shop­ping to do a test run.

TOP TIP: ‘The best way to se­cure a rib­bon is with some well-hid­den bobby bins. Place them un­der­neath so your hair helps cam­ou­flage them,’ says Jes­sica. She also has an ex­tra-ge­nius tip. ‘Spray the bot­tom of the rib­bon or ap­ply a gel onto it. It will then have some ex­tra stick­i­ness.’ Red­ken Braid Aid, Dh90 is ideal for this.
