Big, fluffy curls are definitely having a moment, but there's something so sophisticated -- grownup -- about sleek, slicked-back styles.

The style itself doesn't really matter, as long as the hair is slicked back tightly from the forehead (pompadours and parts need not apply). Whether it's a classic bun, an ornate upsweep or a chic pony, these styles are slicked back off the face, allowing you to put your best face forward!

Here, our favorite A-listers get sleek for fall.
