19 Actually Cute Hair Bows You Won’t Feel Weird Wearing as an Adult

Seeing the words “hair bows” makes me, uh, very apprehensive due to the fact that I went through a bow phase at age thirteen (also known as ~the worst age of all time~). What I thought at the time was the perfect mix of preppy and quirky—but paired with a side-pony was definitely not—has actually make me afraid to wear bows now that they’re trendy again. After I searched for cute ways to wear hair bows in 2019, though, I realized that there are styles that won’t make me feel like I’m reverting back to my middle school self. Miracles can happen, y’all.

If you’re feeling apprehensive about the hair bow trend right now, I totally get it. This is why I searched high and low for the cutest hair bow styles that won’t even make you feel like you’re wearing a hair bow. If the image that keeps coming to mind is a high school cheerleader with a huge-ass bow in her hair, erase it. I’m here to change how you view hair bows. (I mean, if I can change my own mind on hair bows, I can probably change yours, too.)

From on-trend scrunchies featuring little bows that are subtle enough to wear every day to bow-detail headbands you won’t regret (probably) in five years, there are so many ways to actually look like an adult while wearing this trend. Hair accessories are having a moment in 2019, so you might as well get with the program.
