The contrast of sleek, deliberately oiled hair with a rumpled ponytail is a runway favorite. For that texture in the back, first create curls going in multiple directions, then tease them out and spray it all in place.

By giving the hair some texture—thanks to mousse if your hair is fine, and a curling iron—it looks perfectly undone.

A ponytail that's slightly positioned to the short side of your part makes an elegant, Bardot-esque statement.

The classic cheerleader ponytail is now a red carpet staple. Just be sure the hair is slicked back tightly and the ponytail is positioned just slightly above the tops of the ears.
