Scrunchies had their moment, but like it or knot, this fall, it’s all about the knotted headband. This hair accessory is by no means new, but as brands release their new arrivals for next season, these headbands keep rising to the top (knot). Anecdotally, knotted headbands have absolutely flooded my Instagram, and I’ve seen probably hundreds of heads adorned with knots on my subway commute this week alone.

And anyway, when major designers are making something for $650 that you can also buy on Amazon for $6, you know it’s a thing. But you don’t have to spend this month’s rent to try the trend. Below you’ll find a few of our favorite knotted headbands that will keep your head looking fashion forward all season long.
