While Cheryl Cole, TOWIE's Samantha Faiers and Cher Lloyd have all been working the 'big is best' bun in recent weeks, Hayden showed off a much more natural look at the Environmental Media Awards on Saturday evening (19 October).
The Nashville star looked extremely sexy for the event, dressed in a figure-hugging black lace and orange dress designed by Georges Hobeika and simple, black heels.
And wearing her hair scraped high into a sophisticated ballerina bun was a smart move, showing off Hayden's dress to true perfection.
We've seen all manner of huge topknots in celebsville this year, but the poor old bun has been somewhat overshadowed, so we're hoping this is a sign this simple, understated look is making a comeback.
To get yours as sleek and tidy as Hayden's, try working with your hair while it's still slightly damp, or spritz your comb with hairspray before grooming your hair into place.
Next, flip your head upside down to allow gravity to help comb your hair up into place, then fix it into a high ponytail at the crown of your head.
To create your bun, simply twist it around itself, fix with grips and you're done.
Oh, and if you've still got the odd fuzzy patch, you could always do a Chloe Sims and use a toothbrush to smooth those flyways into place!
