To underline text in Figma, select the characters and use the Command + U shortcut.  

To bold text, select the characters and use Command + B.

You can also use the Command + I shortcut to italicize text as well, but you'll want to make sure your font supports bold and/or italic characters first.  Unlike some design tools, we don't modify the typeface to create a faux bold/italic font.
