As seen at Chanel: Large bows crown any hairstyle for the holidays...
There are designers: inside, for whom ribbons are a way of life - just take Simone Rocha, Miuccia Prada, Erdem Moralioğlu, or Kate and Laura Mulleavy from Rodarte. In the case of Chanel, they're so closely intertwined with the fashion house's DNA that they keep returning from season to season. Sometimes as a delicately pointed detail, sometimes as a key motif. The latter applied to the “Métiers d'Art” collection 2021/22, which was presented in Paris in December. There was a sophisticated coolness in Virginie Viard's looks, which was skilfully rounded off by black bows in her hair. The result was powerful and a bit punk - inspired by femininity that ran through the entire collection thanks to the bows.
At this time of year, with the last invitations fluttering into our digital inboxes, the hair inspiration from Chanel comes at just the right time. Even the greatest minimalists now like to venture into daring hair styling to end the final days of the year with a suitably glamorous look. Whether made of satin, chiffon, or velvet - black bows ennoble every look, whether with a portion of preppiness or rock'n'roll.
Festive hairstyle trend: this is how to style bows for the 2021 holiday season, according to Chanel
Bows completed almost every hairstyle and every outfit on the Chanel show - this principle also applies to post-styling. There is only one rule: the bow should be black, otherwise, it can quickly look too playful. It doesn't matter whether you opt for open hair, a low bun, or a ponytail, the black bow comes as the final finish. At Chanel it sits enthroned on top of the hairstyle, accordingly, it is best placed on the front half of the head at the side part, or on the side above the ear. An ideal orientation for the height of the loop is the “5 minutes past 12” principle. Et voilà - the celebrations can begin!
