Olivia Rodrigo’s Throwback Buns

For the MTV Movie & TV Awards red carpet, Rodrigo’s go-to hairstylist Clayton Hawkins went for a sleek, angular look. The pro used Tangle Teezer’s Ultimate Detangler and Styler brushes to smooth every strand, and applied plenty of gel to lock her twisted buns into place.
