We’ve seen the slicked-back bun all over our feeds, but textured, layered, dramatic updos are making their way back, as shown on this year’s Met Gala red carpet.

Normani’s Christian Siriano dress wasn’t the only gorgeous part of her outfit, her updo—which gloriously held her top hat upright—was high, tight and glamorous as ever.

Billie Eilish’s Old Hollywood updo (which was perfectly paired with an elegant Gucci dress) literally swept us off our feet.

Hairstylist Erol Karadağ brought Caroline Trentini’s hair to a whole new level with her multi-layered slicked back bun.

Alicia Keys’s bedazzled, braided pony brought the Empire State Building to life on the red carpet, all thanks to hairstylist Fesa Nu.

Hairstylist Owen Gould captioned his photo of Rachel Brosnahan “Met Gala Magic,” and magic is the perfect word to describe what she’s rocking.

Philip Treacy served the drama on a silver platter with Sarah Jessica Parker’s bold headpiece, and her thick, textured updo—done by hair icon Serge Normant—paired perfectly.


Brunette yesterday and blonde today, Kim Kardashian can do the impossible, and make this slicked bun look effortless while she’s at it.


A twist on the classic bun, the stunning Miranda Kerr’s look was all about the low updo, and hairstylist Ericka Verrett made it happen using Paul Mitchell products.
