Every year, Hollywood hair trends are equal parts innovative and nostalgia-fueled, like celebs in hair bows or ribbons. In the case of 2018, it was the latter that reigned supreme.
And if that weren’t enough, experts are predicting that some of these throwback looks will only grow in popularity next year. One thing’s for sure: One of them will likely include the use of hair bows or ribbons, since A-listers can’t seem to stop wearing them. Though we typically associate this accessory with the lewks we wore as children — like the classic pigtails — they can also exude a mature elegance when incorporated into anything from a ponytail to intricate updo.
