I'll have my hair like that, please!

I have spotted this hairstyle on a few celebrities and in some editorials recently. It is like a glamourous version of the top knot which has been the 'up-do' of the year. Matched with heavy eye make-up, this definitely has a 60s feel to it. Think Mad Men.

I would love to be able to do my hair like this, but I know with my mad, Lioness hair, it wouldn't be a great success. Nevertheless, I will try, but ......

Anyway, what do you think of this glamourous, sexy hair-style? Will you be trying it out?

I really would love to try it out! I am not very good at making hairstyles. Perhaps I need to invest in hair spray.

I love the whole 60's hair/makeup revival that's going on at the moment.
I saw some photos in a magazine of Kimberly Walsh with different 60's inspired hair styles. Love this look though, very chic.
