Ever since Blair Waldorf sat on the steps of the Met, hair adornments weren’t as popular. They’re back in full force, as evidenced by the hair accessories on the SAG Awards red carpet, among others. (The runways are full of them, too.) On Sunday night, the biggest stars of television and film honored themselves at the 28th Screen Actors Guild Awards at the Barker Hangar in Santa Monica, Calif. It’s the first big red carpet of the year where all the guests were waxed, shaved and ready to party.

This year, women of all ages and hairstyles opted for hair accessories, including Helen Mirren, 76, and HoYeon Jung, 27. If you’ve ever felt like that puffy headband feels a little too much Something (extra, young, trendy) look to these celebrities for inspiration. Even if you don’t have a celebrity hairstylist on hand, give it a try, whether it’s casual for brunch or for a special occasion.

Ho Yeon Jung

the squid game actor – and SAG Award winner! – wore a Daeng Gi tie with the traditional Hanbok at the end of its braided ponytail. The Korean accessory matched her Louis Vuitton dress beautifully. “The dress was so familiar to the Korean homeland, but how modern and cool it was. I can’t hide the fact that I was very moved by how I was able to be the one who styled her hair in a modern take on the elegant traditional Korean braids and putting the Daenggi in Hoyeon’s hair,” hairstylist Jenny Cho said in a statement.

She used ghd hair tools for the sleek look, including the ghd Platinum+ Styler Flat Iron – 1″ ($279 at Amazon).

Helen Mirren

We didn’t expect the SAG Lifetime Achievement Award-winning star to opt for a more modern take on the crown with this puffy pink headband. But she East a Lady after all. Hairstylist Richard Collins is responsible for the cute hairstyle. “For Helen’s look, I added some extra texture to the hair because her dress is very clean and pretty for tonight, and I wanted to offset the clean lines of the dress with some extra interest in the hair. We went with a soft bun with face-framing texture for a classic glam look on this special night,” he said in a statement. Collins used L’Oréal Paris hair products, including the hugely popular Elnett Satin Strong Hold Hairspray ($11.99 at walmart).

Best Comedy Actress nominee Juno Temple’s hair was styled by Mara Roszak with Wella Professionals products. For a volumized and textured fishtail braid, he used EIMI Rugged Texture Paste ($17.64 on Amazon) for an effortlessly flawless look. He finished with gold thread around the end of the braid, a surprising but very cool accent.

Madeleine Brewer

the Handmaid’s Tale star turned heads with this cool metal hair accessory. Hairstylist Adir Abergel was responsible for the Joan of Arc-inspired ‘do’. “I saw this look as a work of art,” Abergel said in a statement. “I wanted to imitate origami with the bun and give it an architectural effect. Playing with the duality of strength and softness, I created a classic bun, with a defined middle parting and completed it with a beautiful metal hair accessory I found at a flea market in Paris Abergel used Virtue hair products, including the 6-in-1 Styler ($34 to Sephora) to structure.

Selena Gomez

Although Gomez’s hair looked like a simple slick bun from the front, when she turned around, BOOM: a Chanel hair bow! “We didn’t want the hair to get in the way in any way and went for a clean, classic bun that flatters Selena’s face so well. Her stylist had a Chanel bow which was the icing on the cake,” hairstylist Marissa Marino said in a statement. Marino used Tangle Teezer’s The Ultimate Finisher ($18 at Ultimate) for a perfect bun without bump.
