Worn pinned along the sides of the hair like a middle school girl at Diane Von Furstenberg, wrapped around the head like a perfect present at Jason Wu and tied around a side ponytail at Milly, bows were a beauty headliner. Not since the 1980s have hair bows been this stylish. And the trend seems to be channeling the decade, too. Over the top and oversized (think Madonna during her Like a Virgin days), as well as smaller ones worn two and three at a time (after all, it was the decade of excess) were the most notable styles parading down the runway. Fabrics were equally extreme, with taffeta, chiffon and patent leather among the most decorative.According to the pros, to look less Material Girl and more modern-day, size and placement matter.
Hair Bows at Fashion Shows
Hair bows made headlines at the 2010 runways shows. See which designers made them a top trend.
"The bows on the runway were mostly oversized and eccentric, but for the every day woman, bows that are smaller and understated are more realistic," notes celebrity stylist Michael Boychuck. As for placement, adds Boychuck, gather a small section of the hair on one side and secure it with a single bow. - By Julie Redfern
