ows have become a cute way to spruce up a simple ‘do for celebrities like Emily Ratajkowski, Margot Robbie and Mandy Moore – and the style has a royal fan in Kate. The royal mom of three, 36, recently sported the look twice in one week, for a visit to the University College London to learn about neuroscience research affecting children as well as a joint engagement with Prince William. For both appearances, she pulled her hair back into a practical ponytail, dressed up with a black velvet hair tie.
Not only is Kidman and Kate’s shared hair hack adorable, it’s super easy and inexpensive to replicate. For a do-it-yourself feel, achieve the look by buying a spool of ribbon in your preferred width and colour from a store like Spotlight (this one is $2.49) You can tie it directly into your bun or ponytail or hot-glue it to a craft-store barrette. (Or if you want to take a shortcut, buy one of these pretty picks we rounded up for you!)
Kate has also been sporting another new hairstyle: ditching hats and traditional fascinators for dressed-up headbands. (Perhaps Kidman can bring the whimsical head-toppers to the Oscars red carpet?)
