It’s January. We’re back at work. And today’s the day we have to take down the decorations. But this is not a cause for sadness. Oh no. Because have you seen this pretty look that’s been trending on Instagram and Pinterest…
Oh yes, ribbons in your hair. So cute and yet also chic. And the perfect way to make use of that leftover ribbon. In fact, I’ve got some nice gold and black harlequin-pattern ribbon that was on my Jo Malone gifts that I think might be the perfect perk-me-up right now.
There’s no special tricks here, just put your hair half up with a small bobble, then cover the bobble with a length of ribbon of your choosing.
I think it’s best to avoid glitter (you know, Christmas being over and all) but the yellow velvet above is beautiful, and I think a striped or polka dot style would go down a treat.
This velvet ribbon, in a shade called crocus stamen, is from V V Rouleaux and costs £2.95 a metre.
Meanwhile this cute spotty ribbon, in pale azalea, is £1.45 a metre…
So go on, get yourself down to your local haberdashery for a cheap and cheerful 2017 hair update. Perfect with jeans, trainers and a breton if you simple can’t prise yourself out of your comfy clothes!
