The bun updos at 2023’s Critics Choice Awards prove once again that the classic hairstyle was made to rule red carpets. Whether pulled high for a prima ballerina feel or kept low and voluminous for Old Hollywood glamour, these buns have nothing in common — and that’s why the style is so cool.

Quinta Brunson’s sculptural bun updo is towering, wrapped, and super sleek to complement the fanfare of her ruffled gown. Her hair, styled by Alexander Armand using Maui Moisture products and Olivia Garden tools, is the be-all-end-all of topknots.Steve Granitz/FilmMagic/Getty Images
