10 of the Best Celebrity Ponytails

From Giselle to Gwyneth...

Jessica Alba

A longtime fan of the high ponytail, Jessica Alba wore this look for an Honest Beauty launch last week.

Kate Bosworth

The actress opted for a sleek ponytail at the 2017 DVF Awards.

Hailey Baldwin

Hailey loves a high ponytail, with teased, texturised tresses giving the illusion of volume.

Gwen Stefani

Gwen Stefani gave her usual slicked-back ponytail style a striking update at the 2017 Kids’ Choice Awards. Celebrity hair stylist Danilo swept sections of hair up and around the hair elastic, creating a sculptural effect with added volume.


Gisele Bundchen

The supermodel’s signature beachy waves look just as chic when casually pulled back.


Blake Lively

The actress has one of the best ponytail games in the business, and often adds a fun twist to the standard pony, like these knots. 


Gwyneth Paltrow

How to make a ribbon look grown-up? Do as the actress did and tie the fabric from  underneath, ditch the bow, and leave the ends hanging.


Sophia Bush

Short hair? Don’t care. What this pony lacks in size, it makes up for in sleekness. 


Olivia Wilde

Accessorise all areas: the metal cuff upgrades the actress’ shiny pony. 


Gigi Hadid

The model’s signature ponytail is high and messy.


Jennifer Lopez

A ponytail at the Oscars? The one and only JLo pulls it off. 


Margot Robbie

The Aussie adds a little interest with a mid-tail braid. 



Queen B knows the secret to a polished pony: wrap a sliver of hair around the elastic. 


Dakota Johnson

The fringe gives this pony a cool, French-girl feel.
