Updo Split

We're accustomed to seeing updos on the red carpet, but lately stars like Krysten Ritter and Taylor Swift have put a twist—quite literally—on topknots and pulled-back hairstyles.

These intricate and quirky updos rival statement necklaces or bold lips as head-turning final touches to any look. We've spied celebs pairing them with dresses featuring high necklines.

Take Selma Blair, who couples dual buns split by a zigzag part with a boatneck dress, or Nicole Richie, who displays a braided topknot with a high-collared lace gown. Wearing a down 'do with frocks like these could easily obscure the actresses' lovely faces.

Swift's collarbone-baring dress works with a slightly more low-slung chignon, since the navy frock reveals a tad more skin.

What do you think of these elaborate updos? Are they too busy or do they add just the right amount of interest to these ladies' looks?
