9 Bow Hair Accessories That Give Me 2010s Energy

Think back to the early 2010s when Zooey Deschanel’s signature look popularized A-line dresses, Mary Janes and patterned tights. Known as the “twee” style, this quaint fashion trend has recently reemerged thanks to TikTok and everyone’s Sunday night obsession, Euphoria. And if you’re looking for an easy — and surprisingly chic — way to incorporate style into your wardrobe, these bow hair accessories are set to become your latest must-have.

With over 78 million #twee views on the app, TikTok trend setters are resurrecting the twee style and its vintage-inspired, soft and feminine aesthetic. Meanwhile, on Euphoriaunderrated style icon Lexi Howard (played by Maude Apatow) has been wearing a lot of satin ribbons and soft sweaters lately, sparking nostalgia for Wes Anderson films and new girl reruns.

While you can shop second-hand to create a twee-inspired outfit (think blouses and puff-sleeved dresses you can throw on), the bow hair accessories I’ve seen all over my screens can be incorporated into looks you already own for a subtly twee statement. Of course, you can also pair them with the signature twee hairstyle of long, thick, uneven bangs – although a trip to the salon is completely optional!

Whether you prefer clips, headbands, barrettes or ponytails, there are selected bow hair accessories here to suit your preferences. And with chic details like unexpected materials and hardware, they’re totally updated for 2022.

A big golden bow

Complete any hairstyle with this 14k gold plated bow barrette for a more modern take on the twee style. Just clip it under a messy bun or at the end of a fishtail braid for a simple look but still chic enough for a night out or dinner party.

A sweet floral barrette

For the first picnic of the season or a spring stroll, slip this floral bow barrette into your hair for a touch of whimsy. It’s not overdone, but definitely big and colorful enough for others to notice how cute it is.

A bow worthy of a storybook

With its classic blue and white gingham silk fabric, this bow gives Dorothy The Wizard of Oz costume-y vibes. Clip it to the side of down braids or the bottom of a pair of ponytails for a fun, youthful look.

A handmade headband

The placement of the bow on this handwoven raffia headband will add a kitschy element to any outfit. Pair it with your favorite spring dress for a look made for the sun.

A velvet bow headband

Thanks to its black hue, this one-size-fits-all velvet headband is a staple in any wardrobe. The off-center bow gives it a playful look, while the understated waistline keeps it chic and sophisticated.

A lavender scrunchie

For those who were on the high school cheer squad, this bow scrunchie will bring back great nostalgia. Made from ultra-soft fabric, it will easily glide through braids for a high pony, low pony or messy bun without tugging or snagging.

A chic black tie

For Gossip Girl vibes, go for this luxury bow hair tie. With accents of faux pearls and crystals and long black ribbons, it’s the twee style that has grown. I love it paired with an oxford shirt and mini skirt for a private school inspired look.

A crystal clip

Not a fan of ribbons? This hair comb gives the illusion. Made from beautiful glass beads, it will give the whimsical look of a bow without the flimsy material.

A studded bow

To add some pizzazz to your twee, check out this leather bow adorned with a black skull and green star gemstones. Wear it to the side of your hair or tuck it into the top of a ponytail to make a serious statement.
