Chloe Sevigney, Los Angeles, January 2009
The dolly bun has become the go-to hairstyle usurping the chignon at red carpet occasions and the off-duty down-do. It screams effortless cool. Chloe wears hers right above her forehead, which for low-key days out makes a big impact. You don’t need tonnes of product or stylist know-how, just pull your hair up to the front of your head and tie into a messy knot.

Although the show was back in 2009, this hairstyle still looks fresh and modern. Charles Worthington says, 'prep hair using mousse before blow drying, then backcomb the hair before pinning it up to give a youthful, fresh look to the dolly bun. Dishevel slightly by pulling out random sections’.
