Top knots and headbands
I have been wearing top knots so often I was starting to get bored so I have a few how-to ideas to top your top knot. The first top tip is to add a headband.
Headbands are an underrated hair accessory. In less than a second a messy hairdo becomes polished by adding a headband. The simple placement of a jewelled headband will make everyone think you’ve gone to a lot of effort when you haven’t even brushed your hair. It’s the quickest hairstyle fix I know.Clockwise from top left: Headbands from Summerblossom, $2 shop, Peeptoe and DIY.
Why not try adding a headband to your top knot and see how it changes your look.
