A bun for summer: Not exactly groundbreaking, but a go-to for any occasion nonetheless. From Diane Kruger’s low-slung scrunchie situation on the sidewalks of Soho (a ’90s accessory the star has championed for two straight days…yes, we’re counting) to Karlie Kloss‘ midi gym knot, the style works brilliantly for a steamy summer day. Jaime King took her sleek chignon to a new level for night, pairing her perfectly groomed iteration with a slinky Versace gown for the premiere of Sin City: A Dame to Kill For in Los Angeles earlier in the week. And naturally, Miley Cyrus one-upped them all with a towering, braided knob smack on top of her head for a performance in Chicago. No matter where you fall on the spectrum, these bunheads demonstrate that the beauty classic is a 24/7 hair savior.

There are women in this world who look perpetually stunning, and Diane Kruger is one of them. She experiments with cool braids, doesn’t shy away from a head scarf, and counts Karl Lagerfeld and Jason Wu as dear friends. A scrunchie seems like the last thing she would rock…but then we spotted this photo (and consequently did a double take). Kruger, she just wants to shock and awe us at every turn—and perhaps get in on the stylistic resurgence the ’90s is currently enjoying. That, or she woke up with a hangover and just couldn’t deal with her hair. (Hey, we’ve all been there.) We’ll accept any of the aforementioned explanations.
When the humidex spikes or you want to spice up a messy knot, look no further than a patterned piece of fabric. In addition to crisp white iterations, Giambattista Valli accessorized his Couture collection with quirky striped scarves (as seen here on Binx Walton). Diane Kruger employed the same style solution at a screening this week, opting out of the off-center bow and tying her headband underneath her low-slung bun for a more subtle statement. And at last night’s ICB x Def Jam celebration, Mia Moretti surrendered her strands to a colorful silk foulard. Frizz and flyaways be damned—with the dog days of summer on the horizon, we’re keeping our hair under wraps.

Diane Kruger showed some major braid game on the red carpet in West Hollywood last night for the premiere of FX’s The Bridge. To achieve the striking style, hair pro Kylee Heath began by prepping strands with Leonor Greyl Spray Structure Naturelle and rough drying in all directions. After making a series of parts, leaving a “triangle” of hair exposed, Heath crafted an “inside-out French braid” and secured it at the nape of the neck using a clear elastic.
With the remaining sections, Heath created a bit of volume at the roots and fashioned a loose French braid on top, leaving the inverted plait peeking out. While you’ll likely need to enlist a friend to pull this one off, Kruger’s innie-and-outtie combo is guaranteed to cause a few double takes.
From a punky, pink-streaked ponytail at last year’s gala to this season’s forties-style chignon, Diane Kruger is always one to watch climb the crimson-colored stairs at the Met. And while a side part and glamorous waves were trending tonight (thanks to Taylor Swift, Blake Lively, Gisele Bündchen, Chanel Iman, and countless others), this neck-grazing classic is a look worth copying. Here, the quick how-to from Kruger’s hair pro, Miki:
1. Prep with a light mousse for volume and grip. Next, spritz strands with a heat protectant (like Vidal Sassoon Pro Series Heat Protect & Shine Spray) before blowing hair smooth.
2. Pull the length back into a tight, low pony.
3. For texture, tease the ends of the tail and mist with hairspray (try Vidal Sassoon Pro Series Flexible Hold Hairspray). Brush the formula out to boost body and eliminate any stiffness.
4. Wrap the tail around a cylindrical foam roll to form a circular, sculpture-like chignon, pin in place, and set with more shine spray for a sleek finish.
Now, if only that Jason Wu for Hugo Boss gown was available…
