The bobby pins were flying on fall runways as stylists sent out a bevy of artful and feminine dos that were then swiftly embraced by the red-carpet brigade. Here, our favorite new takes on knots, twists, and tails-with how-to's from the pros.

THE LOOK:

Going extra-low gives the bun of the season a "very glamorous and seductive feel," says Redken Creative Consultant Guido.

GET IT: For sleekness with a touch of volume, coat damp hair with a volumizer and blow-dry straight. After parting, pull hair into a low ponytail. ("I used my fingers to rake it back so it has a bit of volume," says Guido.) Then, spritz on a shine spray to "create sleek hair, which is great for a dramatic evening look," he adds. Next, twist hair into a chignon and secure with a U-pin. Finish with hair spray.

THE LOOK:

Shifting the classic French updo to the side produces a "graphic and modern" look, says Eugene Souleiman, Wella Professionals global creative director. Scarlett Johansson's and Charlize Theron's relaxed rolls update the 1940s look with a fresh and elegant air.

GET IT: Prep hair with a smoothing balm, then blow-dry and make a deep side part. Comb hair tightly across the back, away from the side where your hair is parted, and secure with pins. Next, roll hair into a loose French twist. Push the roll upward and inward, securing it with pins as you go.

THE LOOK:

This fall's side pony gets its polished appearance from a side part and extra shine, says hairstylist Guido. Give it a more modern effect, he adds, by having the sides cover your ears.

GET IT: Apply a smoothing blow-dry lotion to damp hair, then use a blow-dryer to straighten. Next, make a short side part and pull strands into a very low ponytail. A finish of spray, Guido says, locks in the shape.

Infinity Braids

THE LOOK:

Plaits were played for romance on the fall runways with accents and updos that were intricate but not fussy. The look? Youthful without being cutesy.

GET IT: Hairstylist Renato Campora advises prepping dry hair with wax to add shine. Next, he says, braid y- to 1-inch sections from the crown down the back of your head. When you're finished, take the individual braids and work them artfully up and across to assemble the updo. (Enlist a friend if you need to.) Tuck in and pin ends so they don't show.

THE LOOK:

Gold hair adornments, like those cropping up this fall, are as opulent as they are playful. The Dolce & Gabbana runway topped their lavish dos with ornate gilded headbands, while at Rodarte, hair-stylist Odile Gilbert added Gatsby chic with a twinkling hair clip (seen on Kirsten Dunst left).

GET IT: Building some texture into your hair with volumizer gives a clip or barrette a little hold and helps achieve the not-too-perfect vibe that Gilbert says looks right against these hair jewels.
