The History of Hair Bows

We do not have a complete history of the use of hair bows as part of hair styles over time, but we do know that they date back to very early times. Early cave dwelled used sticks and bones as hair clips to keep their unkempt hair out of their eyes. Later on in history soldiers used hair bows to keep their pigtails in place and ensure their eye were clear from stray hair.

It was later on, around 1837 that boys and girls wore hair bows as a fashion accessory, and girls were particularly apt to wearing hair bows, in some cases quite large ones.

Usually Silk, satin and jewels were the main materials, and complimented extraordinarily elaborate hairstyle that were the norm in the 18th century. The 19th century didn’t exploit hair bows as much and really they went out of fashion as hats and other hair accessories became more popular. The 20th century hair bows came back and since then they have been a very popular hair accessory for girls hair, the styles and types are endless, particularly due to the wide available of different materials.
