Forget intricate up-dos or glossy hair down, the A-list has been embracing ponytails on the red carpet. The most popular style – with newcomer Shailene Woodley through to Beyonce – is a super sleek look complete with a long swishing pony. It’s most coveted by the ELLE team because it’s the trickiest to carry off; you need the right bone structure - like Karolina Kurkova for starters, plus you need really long hair or a hair piece – see Katy Perry’s - to get such enviable length.
If you want an easier look, Kim Kardashian wore her long hair in a wavy pony, and despite it being pulled back off her face the more dishevelled texture around her crown made it instantly more wearable and Chloe Moretz used volume for a grown-up, effortless look. For even more face-flattering ponytails look to Charlize who softened her look with a sweeping side part and Jennifer Lawrence who wore hers to the side, with a soft and piecey full fringe.
Which look is your favourite?
