Wearing ribbons is the quintessential female move when it comes to changing up or levelling up the hairstyle. There’s something so girly and nostalgic about wearing ribbons on your crowning glory. The problem, however, is that ribbons tend to do just that: make you look quite a bit too girly. It's something that might not work well if you’re going for a more sophisticated look. Despite this challenge, there are many ways to incorporate a ribbon into your look and style that won’t remind people of pigtails and Mary Jane shoes. Here are some tips to elevate the ribbon from girly to chic.
