17 Ways To Wear Ribbons In Your Hair This Summer

Scarves, scrunchies, headbands, rainbow string. They’re all cool things to twist and braid into hair. If you’re looking for another pretty hair accessory to upgrade your updo with, might I suggest a hair ribbon?

I know, I know, you probably have an idea that hair ribbons are only for third graders, but it’s time to get that idea out of your head. Hair ribbons are suitable (and super cute) for all ages. And, surprisingly enough they’re perfect for pretty much any hair length. Even girls with buzzcuts can still tie a ribbon around their heads like a headband. And that’s just the start of things. Get inspired with these 17 different ways you can wear ribbons in your hair this summer.

1. There are lots of ways you can tweak this hairstyle after you put your locks in a beehive. Add a contrasting ribbon to a headband, use two pieces of ribbon, or try a headband with a matching ribbon.
