Who said hair ties are only for little princesses? After the giant hair scrunchie and the colored bands, we also borrowed the velvet bow for the hair. For a few months now this trendy accessory has really cracked the web and now you can see it everywhere. Worn by fashionistas, bloggers and even celebrities like Kate Middleton, we can't wait to adopt the velvet bow, but how? You have to tell the difference between a hairstyle for little girl and a chic and super stylish look. In this article, we are going to walk you through all the little details that will help you to adopt the velvet hair knot to perfection.
Velvet hair knot is gaining popularity in 2021
Always wanted to try this trendy look, but never knew how? Today, we put an end to this dilemma. Below are our tips on how to wear a hair knot without looking like a little girl! In addition, velvet is a glamorous fabric this year according to the winter 2020 - 2021 trends, shown on the major catwalks in New York, Paris, London and Milan.
The hairstyle with a knot is ideal for camouflaging oily hair because such an accessory will attract all eyes. Especially if you bet on the right color that goes well with the rest of your outfit. In this case, you can also bet on the sleek bun. The velvet knot can add volume to fine hair or just the opposite - help you tame the voluminous mane.
The basic rules for a good look
The velvet bow is a super cute hair accessory that is suitable for all types of hairstyles. Long or short, with side bangs or a French square, it is really versatile. However, there are a few rules that you should always keep in mind:
1. Let the velvet knot speak for itself - pair it with neutral pieces and other more understated pieces.
2. Contrast is essential. Adding a more avant-garde (a sleeveless sweater, biker boots, a Teddy Coat) or masculine element (oversized blazer) can balance the femininity of your new hair accessory.
3. The more structured the knot, the younger it looks. The key is to go for a loose corduroy knot and avoid youthful or cute prints in your outfit.
4. Go for a relaxed hairstyle. You can easily look "overdone" with a velvet bow. The best way to avoid this is to go for a hairstyle that is not overly styled. A low ponytail is generally a safe bet.

The person you see in the photo above is Kate Middleton. It is the perfect example when it comes to accessories and how to wear them in style and class. So with that in mind, position the velor accessory on the lower half of your skull - closer to the back of your neck, the better. For more special occasions, you can try to perfect the ponytail with some mini braids or romantic waves.
An XXL velvet bow
If you want to stand out from children's fashion, keep the knot cords longer than the loops. It's just a cute look that makes voluminous ponytails look even more flowing.

Buckles, buckles and a few more buckles + an elegant velvet bow! It is really easy to pull off the look in the photo if you have some spare time to make your mane wavy.

We love braids
Pair your new accessory with some retro mini braids or another easy braid you can do at the last minute. Another idea is to associate it with an afro hair hairstyle.
Do you have natural curls?
Are you lucky enough to enjoy beautiful natural curls? So, in this case you can just add a little festive touch to your mane with a pastel pink velvet bow as shown in the photo above. We can say that you were born with a hairstyle! You don't need a lot of effort to look glamorous.
