A ponytail ticks all the right boxes for an effortless 'do—everyone knows how to give themselves one, and there are tons of ways to wear it. To keep you inspired, here are celebrity-inspired looks you can rock at your next event (or selfie!):
1. Sarah Lahbati
Remember Julia Stiles' hair in 10 Things I Hate About You? This ponytail is exactly that, minus the very '90s texture at the back.
2. Ria Atayde
Sarah may have made it look more rock 'n' roll, but her version is proof that you can wear it to a formal event, too!
3. Kim Chiu
If stiff tendrils are too much of a throwback, cop Kim's wavy face-framing strands. How dainty!
4. Nadine Lustre
Don't have time to give yourself a full head of waves? Try a braided ponytail instead!
5. Jessy Mendiola
On days when your bangs are impossible to tame, part your hair in the center and use them to frame your face another way.
6. Ylona Garcia
Your tendrils don't always need to come from up top. You can opt to pull hair from the area near your ears, so your layers stay as far away from your face as possible.
7. Yassi Pressman
For naturally wavy hair, a textured ponytail is the easiest way to go. It looks effortlessly; but if you want yours to look a bit more polished, stick to having two neat strands on each side of your face.
8. Janella Salvador
If you have medium-length hair, this Barbie-inspired ponytail is perfect for you. Just flip your ends with a flat iron, and you're good to go!
9. Liza Soberano
Say what you want about scrunchies, but we say put them back in your rotation and drop those plain hair elastics.
10. Kisses Delavin
Think ponytails are too stiff and boring? Make it seem effortlessly feminine by letting loose a few wavy tendrils.
