By now, it's no secret that Nina Dobrev loves herself a ponytail (and we have to admit that we agree), but this style has officially moved her from fangirl to Pony Queen. This 'do has all of the elements of a casual, beach-day style — lots of wispy texture and movement — but the height of the pony and the smoothed-out bangs dresses up the 'do just enough, to make it evening-worthy.
Paired with major lashes (they're the Are Those Real? style by Velour Lashes) and a painterly jumpsuit, the overall look is modern glam, without a hint of cheerleader. Looking for a way to tame your long locks during steamy end-of-August nights? Look no further.
