The Bow Tie Braid Is Summer’s Cutest GardenCore Hairstyle

Published

on

From face-framing braided tendrils to Medusa-style braided ponies, braided hairstyles are having a modern-day cool-girl renaissance. And now that it’s summer, another look is entering the chat: the bow tie braid.

If you’re bored of braids, don’t stop scrolling: The oh-so-charming bow tie differs from its predecessors. Really. Unlike most trending braided hairstyles—like the Y2K-inspired Baby Spice braid—the bow tie look leans into a glam garden aesthetic. It’s not quite coquette or cottagecore, but it’s certainly a close cousin. Think Belle from Beauty and the Beast, Princess Fiona (of Shrek), and/or Smurfette…with a pinch of festival fashion.

“It’s a lot like cottagecore, but instead of tying your hair with a fabric bow, you use your own hair,” says Jose “Che” Rojas, hairstylist at Hair Cuttery. It’s a bit more DIY, sure, but still put together enough to pull off at the office. “People want cute and different ways of putting hair up that aren’t a simple pony or messy bun, and doing a bow tie braid can elevate your look or outfit.” 

Rojas adds that the aesthetic of the bow tie braid is overall more “elegant,” making it a great “bridal” look option. Another benefit: These hair bows are super versatile and can be modified for various lengths, textures, and styles.

Whimsical, bow tie braids serve a practical purpose as well—especially when it’s warm out. “Braided hairstyles are a great option for summertime because they sweep hair off the face and neck to keep you cool,” says Amy Abramite, creative director and hairstylist at Maxine Salon, adding that the look requires little to no hot tools, which makes it ideal for higher temperatures. “If the braids are tight, frizziness will be under control on hot humid days by preventing hair from swelling.” As Abramite points out, braided hairstyles can last multiple days without fuss, becoming loose, or having to restyle. Translation? This style is ideal if your hair is hard to manage in the heat.

It’s not surprising that bow tie braids have taken off on beauty-trendsetting platform TikTok. “Bow braid tutorial” and “bow braid” have amassed a combined 5.6 billion views on the app, while “bow hairstyle” overall has collected a substantial 64.9 billion on its own. As for why bows in particular are buzzing: Maybe it’s because they reference a simpler, more wholesome time—or place. Like tending to the garden, for example. “Bows and ribbons have been considered an extravagant fashion accessory for centuries,” Abramite says. “What better way to tie a look together than with a fancy bow?”

The Best Dressed Stars This Week Chose Unexpected Shapes

Published

on

This week, the best dressed stars embraced theatricality on the red carpets. Big, bold silhouettes prevailed at movie premieres and Hollywood parties—whether it was dresses with voluminous ruffles, slouchy denim boots, or even sequined hoods. The memo among A-listers was to expect the unexpected when it came to their fashion choices.

Some of the standouts this week? Certain celebrities opted for vintage ensembles with strong shapes. Take Sydney Sweeney at the HCA TV Awards this weekend, when she revived a Mugler dress from 1981 that had exaggerated peplums. Or Kylie Jenner, who celebrated her 25th birthday this weekend in a vintage Paco Rabanne look. The silvery getup complete with a disco ball-like hood, which was ready to party the night away in.

Impactful colors also had a moment. On the Jimmy Fallon show, Never Have I Ever star Maitreyi Ramakrishnan opted for a Zimmermann floral dress with tons of ruffles, While out in New York, Lili Reinhart also slipped into Tory Burch’s sporty dress with a dash of yellow color-blocking. Speaking of New York, however, there was one city street style moment that truly stole the show: When Rihanna emerged in Y/Project’s extra-slouchy denim boots, fresh off the runway. A head-turning accessory only the Bad Gal herself could truly pull off.

Which were your favorite celebrity looks this week? Be sure to vote below, and check back on Friday to see which ensemble is the ultimate best dressed of the week.

The Kardashian-Jenners Show Three Ways to Modernize Body-Con Dresses

Published

on

If you’ve been following the Kardashian-Jenners since their early days on Keeping Up With the Kardashians, you’ll know that the stylish siblings have always loved a body-con dress: Kim, Kourtney, and Khloe in particular. The show skyrocketed to fame in the early 2010s, after all—there was no better time for skintight Hervé Léger bandage dresses. Over the years, the five siblings’ personal styles may have evolved, but their penchant for form-fitting frocks has never quite quit (Kim, for instance, has been favoring Balenciaga’s spandex catsuits lately). This weekend on Instagram, Kylie posted a new photo with Kendall and Kim, and their trio of summery outfits showcased a more modern update on their signature body-con dressing.

Posing aboard a yacht for Kylie’s 25th birthday celebrations, the three sisters did figure-hugging dresses in a fresh, new way. Kylie wore a sequined and sheer off-the-shoulder dress, complete with an asymmetrical high slit. It’s a more minimal (and elegant) take on the vacuum-sealed style. Kim opted for a shredded red Rick Owens gown that had one long sleeve, her design favoring the more futuristic vibe she’s been channeling as of late. Kendall, meanwhile, slipped into a two-piece, choosing a glitzy bra top and skirt that’s perfect for a night out.

Fashion in general has been moving back towards body-con silhouettes—see the clingy pieces at Mugler, Jacquemus, and Eckhaus Latta—so the Kardashian-Jenners are clearly onto something with keeping their signature sexy look alive. It would be a sight to see the Kardashian-Jenners slip back into their 2010s club wear—but their 2022 takes on the vibe is pretty close. They’re a little more (okay a lot more) current.

What? Cardi B Reveals She Uses Boiled Onions to Wash Her Hair

Published

on

Homemade hack! Cardi B is proud of her long locks thanks to an unusual shampooing process.

“My last 2 washes I been boiling onions and using the water to wash my hair.” the “Bodak Yellow” songstress, 29, wrote via Instagram on Friday, August 12, alongside a photo of her long, natural hair. “I used to do this 6 years ago when I started my healthy hair growth journey.”

She added: “I stopped cause I got really lazy. It’s odorless and I notice that it’s been giving a shine to my hair.”

The New York native’s social media followers were quickly amazed that the water from the vegetables could help her hair grow without a strong aroma. “Dominican remediesssss 😂,” one Instagram user replied.

The rap star is not the only one to wash her hair with onions. In fact, Illuminate Labs’ Dr. Andrea Paul told MarthaStewart.com in March that applying onion juice on the scalp is good to treat hair loss due to the amino acids, which help restore hair follicles. She added: “For convenience, it probably makes sense to apply the treatment prior to showers, as it will be quite pungent.”

While Cardi — who shares daughter Kulture, 4, and son Wave, 11 months, with husband Offset — did not further detail her haircare routine, she’s previously been candid about her go-to beauty products.

“Would you shower at my place?” she previously captioned an August 2021 photo of her bathroom via Twitter, showing off tubs of Vaseline, Dove body wash, Degree deodorant, Dr. Teals scrubs and Lubriderm lotion.

The Hustlers actress continued at the time: “I loooveeeee to exfoliate down south with [the St. Ives Apricot scrub] after I shave. I can’t laser or wax til I give birth [with baby No. 2] so I like to exfoliate right after I shave. Body scrubs is good for the leg & body but I feel is too oily for the bikini line.”

Cardi has also frequently made headlines through the years over her changing hairstyles and wigs, but her natural look has remained one of her favorites.

“OK guys, so this is really how my hair is,” Cardi said in a June 2020 Instagram Story video. “My hair gets like this when you blow dry it and then two days later it looks puff puff like this. Even when you braid it.”

The “WAP” performer told her social media fans that she calls her hair “straight” which is different from Kulture and her “little coils” of curls.

“All the good things that you put in your body, you gotta put in your hair,” she added in the clip, noting that she swears by a DIY hair mask using avocado, raw eggs, mayonnaise and more. “You’re not gonna put soda in your hair because soda ain’t good for your body.”

She continued: “This treatment is really good for curl patterns. I don’t really have a curl pattern but my baby does.”
