Sienna Miller and the Elegant Updo: A Visual Case Study
Updos are the Audrey Hepburn of the hair world: understated, elegant, and timeless. It takes someone like Sienna Miller—queen of slip dresses and leather jackets—to come along, however, and make the pulled-back style actually cool. While other A-listers opt for old-school waves or brushed-out curls, Miller consistently favours twisted-back strands teased with a light touch on the red carpet. Ahead is a visual case study on all the ways Miller has made us reconsider the updo, and subsequently feel shameful for ever writing it off as a stuffy grandma 'do (no offence, Grandma—love you always). Warning: may cause strong urge to unearth every lost bobby pin in your bathroom abyss.

Miller was the stuff red carpet beauty dreams are made of at the Cannes premiere of Carol, with a striking lip, lush lashes, and head-turning hairstyle in the form of two mirror French braids that joined at the nape of the neck. (Spritz a texturizing dry shampoo, like Kevin Murphy's Fresh.Hair Dry Shampoo, $39, through your strands before braiding to add grip.)
Proof there exists a non-awkward way to grow out your bangs? See Sienna Miller at the Harper's Bazaar Women of the Year Awards. All you have to do is spritz a bit of volume spray at your roots (try Amika's Un.Done Texture Spray, $35), twist your bangs away from your face, then hold in place with a bobby pin—just make sure you're using it the right way.
