As Carey Mulligan continues to make the rounds promoting her new film The Great Gatsby (stay tuned for our review!), she's been rocking her fair share of lowkey hairstyles. Most recently: an awesome messy bun to the film's last screening. Didn't we tell you that messy buns are the new red carpet updos?
