Summer days: the top knot headband
Few things scream sunny days spent outside more than a sundress, sandals and your hair pulled back with a pretty top knot headband. Bright silk scarves make for eye-catching accessories and have the added benefit of letting you choose exactly how you want to tie them. Opt for a bow just above one ear, a central twist or a statement knot on top of your head. Heading out for the night? Get inspired by 50s hairstyles and add some glamour curls to transform your look.

Big night out: The high impact top knot
The top knot doesn’t only have to be a low-maintenance daytime styling option, as it can also be sculpted into something that is pretty, feminine, and high impact for going out in the evening. To achieve this look follow these easy steps:
- Add sea spray or dry shampoo to the hair to give it some texture.
- Brush your hair thoroughly to free it from all knots and distribute the spray evenly.
- Pull your hair back into a high ponytail, flattening the sides as you do so it lies smoothly against your head.
- With the ponytail fixed with a small hair tie, wind your hair around it with the amount of fullness you desire. Fix with a few bobby pins secured discreetly at the base.
- Finish with a spritz of high gloss and hold göt2b Glam Force Hairspray.
