My Little Pony(tail): How to Wear Hair Ribbons Like a Fashion Icon

If you thought that delicate bows and fluttering ribbons were reserved for My Little Pony enthusiasts (AKA little girls), think again. The pretty hair accessories (which were spied on the Oscar de la Renta, Dior, and Lanvin Spring 2016 ready-to-wear runways) can be charming, ladylike, and trendy—as demonstrated by singer Rita Ora earlier this week. Spotted in New York City, Ora opted to highlight her unfussy pigtail braids by way of playful, rainbow-colored ribbons.

The Poison singer later repurposed the thin, colorful strips to frame her raked back, second day hair. The delicate add-ons made for a chic hair accessory, and elevated her swingy ponytail. Accompanying a cap-sleeve, biker jacket and bronzed lids, the pretty hair decorations offered an undeniable feminine appeal to Ora’s edgy appearance.

To get the look, twist the colorful ribbons around your pony or weave it through your summer braids. See the celebrities and models in the gallery above give a lesson on how to wear hair ribbons.
