Millie Bobby Brown, Margot Robbie, and this year's glamorous red carpet season have spoken: hair ribbons are back. Not unlike Princess Charlotte's adorable collection of bows, celebrities have been stepping out in elegant hairstyles complete with a feminine, delicate ribbon. While the velvet and satin ribbons are typically tied into a bow, there's really no limit to how creative one can get with the accessory. Here, we've rounded up our favorite ribbon looks of all time, dating all the way back to 1958.
