    Why should topknots and braids have all of the fun, we ask? The humble pony is back and better than ever — and our favorite part about the 'tail is that there are endless ways to wear it: textured, straight, high, low, perky, sleek. Ponytails are like the Matt Damon of the hair world: always likable, infinitely versatile. Yep, we went there.

    To show you just how stylish and cutting-edge your favorite workout 'do can be, we teamed up with hair magician Isabel Guillen of the John Barrett Salon to create five totally fresh takes on the 'tail, all of which can be done easily at home.
