The ponytail with a satiny, loosely tied bow—spotted on the streets and at fall shows like Jenny Packham, above—feels fresh and decidedly romantic. And whether tied around a ponytail, slipped into a high bun, clipped along a side part or woven into an updo as at Red by Valentino and Monique Lhuillier, the new bows look more grown-up, less schoolgirl than you’d expect. Depending on your hair type, you may need a bobby pin or two to keep the ribbon in place; the two pictured in this story clip right in—one of the easiest-ever ways to add instant polish.
