Ever since the messy bun was freed from the scrunchie, the style has evolved from a college staple to an integral part of the model-off-duty uniform, telegraphing the slightly disheveled chic of a post-gym upgrade or instant bedhead fix. And judging by Victoria’s Secret bombshells Gigi Hadid and Martha Hunt’s fuzzy knots in Manhattan yesterday, it’s a look that was made for a little autumnal static (not to mention the added grip that frequent dye jobs and heat styling create).

Of course, judging from a quick glance at the red carpet, it also offers surprising day-to-night appeal as a foolproof black-tie option: Amber Heard attended the Hollywood Film Awards in Beverly Hills with scraped-back waves that softened her shaded cat eyes and sculpted cheekbones, while Zendaya’s textured bun lent her boyish tux a romantic edge. Here, four arguments for the unfailing elegance of a quick twist and a few hairpins—no matter where the day takes you.
