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.”
While scoping the web for the best in beauty news, one of our editors came across this adorable video of Victoria and David Beckham kissing at an L.A. Lakers game. Now, aside from the fact that it’s fun to see Posh and Becks getting caught on the stila sponsored kiss cam, I was actually entranced by Victoria’s gorgeous ponytail. She gave the go-to look a simple, interesting twist that I’ve never tried before. Click through to see the video and find out how to get her look!
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.

One of my favorite things to see on the red carpet is a really chic ponytail. Because unlike complicated chignons or intimidating side-swept updos, ponytails are beautiful in their simplicity. From tightly pulled back to messy-sexy, ponytails are easy to replicate. This past year, celebs sported plenty sassy ponies and I’ve rounded up the best. Which one is your favorte?

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.
