When Kaia Gerber walked the Miu Miu Spring/Summer 2019 show, who knew that a little black ribbon was enough to birth a red carpet hair trend? The childhood staple seems to have gotten a seriously chic revamp, and is making its way onto the heads of starlets such as Lucy Boynton and Lili Reinhart. But we can’t quite credit Gerber for this one entirely – the ribbon was popularized as far back as the 50s and 60s by the likes of Catherine Deneuve and Brigitte Bardot.
Another thing we love about this dainty hair accessory? An element of playfulness aside, it’s versatile enough for day or night – whether tied up into a bow, worn as a hairband, or woven through a braid. No wonder we can’t help but see it having a major moment in 2019. So while predicting and setting trends isn’t always a simple science, perhaps Guido Palau – the hairstylist behind the Miu Miu runway look – knows something that others don’t? Take a glance at the gallery, below, and take notes on how stars have been styling this trend lately.
