Sleek chignons may be the traditional choice when it comes to red carpet appearances, but the stars strutting their stuff at the Cannes Film Festival over the past few days have been putting a fun twist on the updo.
Model Hailey Baldwin stormed Cannes with a twisted top knot that showed off her new rose pink hair color and ashy roots to perfection. Stylist Jen Atkinson kept a few wisps loose around the face for an even more laidback look.

for the mane attraction, her sleek tight topknot looked futuristic and remarkable. Her hair resembled brushstrokes on a painting and we think she did a fabulous job at pulling this hairstyle off with confidence and elegance.
Laura Harrier's smooth chignon for the premiere of "BlacKkKlansman" ticked all the boxes: it was sleek, shiny, elegant, and featured a gorgeous knotted detail, courtesy of stylist Jennifer Yepez.
Kristen Stewart's striking and versatile look for the opening night of the festival covered all bases -- the look featured delicate braids, a rat tail, and a raffish quiff.
Model Sara Sampaio rocked a knotted updo that appeared to be a simple chignon at first glance but actually featured a fascinating intertwined pattern created by stylist Vasco Freitas.
Jen Atkin is Bella Hadid's go-to hair stylist, so it was no surprise that the creative was on hand to construct this curly ponytail for the star, pulled extra high and tight for as much contrast as possible.
