We’ve got contributing editor Natalie Alcala on speed-dial.

While there were tons of stellar shows at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim this year, (Wildfox was definitely a crowd-pleaser), nothing holds a candle to the beauty spotted at Beach Bunny.

The Perfectly Approachable Ponytail at Rachel Roy Spring 2013

At yesterday’s Rachel Roy presentation, celebrity hairstylist Ted Gibson was on hand to talk about the perfect wearable ponytail he had created. “The position of the ponytail was the most important. We didn’t want it to be too high because the high ponytail tends to be a little too cheerleader, and the low ponytail can be too sophisticated. So we wanted something that sits in the middle of the head.”

The Perfect Way to Dress Up Your Drab Pony

Try as I might to do amazing things with my hair every day (I actually love to experiment—check out my messy side-swept updo video tutorial here), most days I just slick my hair back into a ponytail. In the Birchbox world, boring hair is tantamount to just not caring enough, so I was thrilled when I stumbled across these Free People ponytail cuffs. So cute, so chic, and so freaking easy! My favorite is definitely the Navajo design, but the stingray print is also very sophisticated and pretty. 

How do you dress up your pony? Have you ever used a ponytail cuff?

When I saw this photo of Olivia Wilde back in August at the Berlin premiere of her movie, Cowboys and Aliens, I was mesmerized. As far as I know, this is the first time a celeb has sectioned off a pony like this with elastics (for a red carpet event anyway). Given how great the look is, I don’t think it will be the last. I especially liked the sci-fi feel of the style, which was very fitting given the film’s premise.
