Hair that's down, whether sleek and center-parted or sideswept and wavy, has a certain feminine, romantic quality to it. And then there are updos that communicate a stance of power—almost like the hair version of a power suit. While celebrities will always have a soft spot for flowing locks, it's nice to see a badass updo every now and then, and Hollywood's latest trending hairdo is just that. Part pompadour, part bouffant, it's a cool update on a classic look. The results is masculine, elegant, and edgy at once. Keep scrolling to see what we mean!
