Tory Burch Trendsetters/ Runway Report R ibbons of all types weave their way into hairstyles this season, oftentimes adding a feminine fl ourish to a ponytail or chignon. At Tory Burch, Redken global creative director Guido knots a thick velvet ribbon around the base of a low-slung tail, noting it "evokes a romantic, sophisticated, soft, pretty look" that plays nice with the femininity of the Tory Burch brand. For the Philosophy di Lorenzo Serafi ni ponytail, a lanky black bow offers a sweet contrast to the rather risqué wares. While the typical bow-tied hair narrative skews youthful, not all ribbons are meant to charm. In fact, how they're tied (perfectly or lopsided), what they're made of (velvet, grosgrain or satin) and how they lay (stiff or fl oppy) certainly play a role in a ribbon's style impact. Witness the broad, rigid satin bows that dress the mussed chignons at Marchesa; more regal than cloying, they lend an air of sophistication. Or the streamers of black ribbon that trail down the backs of models' heads on the Emilia Wickstead runway—the effect is edgy, and not in the least bit sweet. And the teensy bow nestled above a fl awlessly looped chignon at Rochas? Hair lead Paul Hanlon explains that it's meant to mimic a horsetail quaffed for a dressage horse show—a nod to majestic equestrian beauty that also looks quite stately. The common thread that runs through this trend: All you need is one strip of ribbon and a little creativity to churn out endless styles.
