This time of year, it’s hard not to be on an Ariana Grande level of ponytail loyalty. And why shouldn’t we be? To start, it’s hot AF outside and a ponytail offers a two-second solution to getting our hair off our sweaty necks. With longer days and later nights, we’d rather take the extra 20 minutes of sleep and a ponytail than perfectly blown out waves, thank you very much.
But the classic go-to style for post-workout brunch, time-starved mornings, and sweltering afternoons doesn’t have to signal defeat. Hollywood stylists are serving up ponytails with a little something unexpected, making the look feel more deliberate and event-ready than ever. See how an extra twist, accessory, or tease can take an average pony to new heights. Get ready to make everyone’s favorite lazy-girl style look anything but, ahead.
