7 Knotted Headbands To Add Style To Any Outfit, Because These Chic Hair Accessories Will Be Your Crowning Glory

New Look

If you've been hitting the shops lately, you may have noticed that there has been a huge influx of hair accessories hitting stores such as Topshop, Anthropologie, and Urban Outfitters. And not just any hair accessories; the style of the season appears to the be knotted headband, which is an Alice band hard style with a twisted knot at the top in the middle. The best knotted hairbands add a touch of style to any outfit, and are easy to pull off.

The great thing about this design is that there are a seemingly endless amount of colours and fabrics to buy into to. While I'm a big fan of cord and velvety finishes, you can also pick up something satin or metallic. And then there are the colours and designs: from autumnal mustard to festive sparkling green and animal prints, there are designs for everyone.

Hairbands suit nearly every hair length, looking lovely on longer locks but also adding an extra edge to shorter bobs and lobs. They're easy to wear, too; simply add a touch of tousle to your hair with a tong, spray some wave spray and slide in your chosen hairband behind your ears. The key is to not make it look too "done" — this season's hairband is all about nonchalant coolness rather than sleek perfection.
