Hailey Bieber just paired her new bob hairstyle with this 'Balletcore' accessory, so you can bet we're about to see it everywhere this summer. Here's how to recreate Hailey Bieber's hairbow moment...

While Hailey Bieber's chic sunglasses and statement earrings are irrefutable capsule wardrobe essentials, the model and Rhode founder is now making a rather compelling case for the contentious hairbow.

Having opted for a big hair chop earlier this year, Hailey has now taken to styling her Italian bob style in either a half-up/half-down look or in a bun, all with the help of a simple, silk bow—and it's giving ballerina vibes. So naturally, we (and everyone else who's recently succumbed to the short hair movement )want to channel her summery look, STAT...

Hailey Bieber's hairbow look

While soaking up the sun in France, during a vacation that she's affectionately dubbed the 'best summer of my life,' Hailey took to Instagram to share exactly how she's been styling her hair for the trip.

Posting on Monday, May 29, 2023, Hails shared a carousel of snaps, showing herself with her hair either scooped up into a 'Clean-Girl'-esque bun or in a half-up look, all accessorized with a cute bow. 

Clearly, she took an array of colors with her, to compliment her outfits as both a pink, cream and red bow are visible.

Trend-wise, Hailey isn't the only star supporting the bow comeback, with the likes of Sydney Sweeney and Emily Ratajokowski also wearing the accessory to the 2023 Met Gala.

This hair detail is easy to incorporate into any look and does instantly create something of a statement. So if you've been finding your short hair difficult to style, or perhaps want to give your sea-soaked locks a boost for a dinner or day out, a hairbow could be the way to go.

Like with silk scrunchies, a bow is also far more gentle on your hair that an elastic or hair tie, so if you're looking to give your hair some R&R (along with your soul) whilst on vacation—while also keeping it looking cute—let's get you a bow already!

All the essentials for copying Hailey's Bieber hairbow look

A really budget-friendly option for recreating Hailey's ballerina vibe would be to head to your local fabric/textile or hobby store as they often have an array of loose ribbons available, though this might require a little bit of DIY-ing on your part.

But we've also rounded up a few shoppable bows too—plus everything else you need to create the look!
