The Deneuve Updo

bow090717

An easy way to get Catherine Deneuve’s famous updo is a  black velvet clip-on bow. Love this one by Jennifer Behr.

  • To be honest whilst it looks nice on CD the clip on looks a bit twee….
    but I guess it’s an age thing for me…..

  • Great look if you are in your 20s. Can’t do this look at age 42.

  • I think you can do this bow with a low ponytail at any age – it’s a great look. But I agree about the half up do being quite young.

  • I wear a black satin ribbon with a pony, or black satin head band at night all the time—I get lots of compliments. I ordered this bow and will take a picture.

  • Keeping the ponytail or half-up tail on the lower side (lower than on CD) keeps the bow from looking twee.

  • Just LOVE the black velvet bow look! I bought 2 bows/ribbons – both black velvet with one having black beading this past Christmas for myself, kind of. (They were going to be gifts but I loved them too much!!!) I wear them with a ponytail, a half-up/half-down do, around a low bun or top-knot and get compliments all the time! For me, age has nothing to do with it – if it fits your personality, go for it!

    BTW – Deneuve is an absolute stunner! Then & now!!!

    Thank you for posting! Your blog is one of my absolute favorites!

  • Although it’s not for me, I can see it looking chic on a low, relaxed ponytail at any age. I’m looking forward to seeing how you style it. I’m sure it will be fabulous.
