One of the easiest (most inexpensive) trends currently making the rounds is a simple ribbon dangling off the end of a messy ponytail. The stuff of schoolgirls ending a long day with slightly bedraggled hair ties has found its way to runways, street style and trend setting bloggers.
To avoid having this hairstyle veer off and become cutesy instead of cool keep both the bow and the hairstyle slightly messy. Allow a few strands of hair to fall loose. Crumple the ribbon so it gives off a laissez-faire vibe. Adjusting the hairstyle with these easy little tweaks will take your standard ponytail or go-to topknot and elevate it to something new for the season at little to no expense (just the cost of a ribbon…if you don’t already have one crumpled in a drawer).
