Tie a ribbon at the end of a braid When you think ribbon, do you have a cheerleading flashback? Us, too. But this picture is proof that you can wear ribbons tastefully. Just make sure to use a ½-inch floppy ribbon in a solid beige color. Dizon says you want to steer clear of stiff ribbon, which looks cheap. Also, "make sure the bow isn't too big, so that it doesn't look adolescent," she says. Using ribbon adds something playful to your hairstyle without going over the top. You can do a French braid like this one, or braid just the upper half of your hair, tying the ribbon at mid-length.
