• Ponytails are officially a red carpet DO. These Hollywood ladies proved that you can play them up for a statement look or play them down to accompany a bold neckline. Whatever you choose, the end result is gorgeous. 

    Heidi Klum

    The Project Runway judge sported a tiered ponytail with hair loosely wrapped around each section. We love how the front is so sleek, while the back is a fun surprise.

  • Amy Poehler

    The nominee jumped on the low ponytail trend we saw all over the runway this season. For such a sleek finish, use a few drops of argan oil to keep flyaways at bay.

  • Kiernan Shipka 

    The Mad Men actress steered clear of the stereotypical cheerleader pony by adding waves and subtle texture at the crown.

    To make a sleek low ponytail even prettier, just add ombré like the Modern Family actress did here.

  • Amanda Peet

    To balance out her high neckline, Peet sported a messy-chic high pony. For similar texture on top, apply a small amount of hairspray and brush through lightly with your fingertips.
