A ponytail really is the jack of all trades. It can be humble and simple, a way to keep your hair from your face, or chic and dressed up with hair accessories or extensions.

Looking to perfect your ponytail game? Dua Lipa has got you. Her high and sleek ponytail is both playful and chic. Perfect for the red carpet or a night on the town.

To recreate this look, gather your hair into a high ponytail and secure it with a hair band. Take a small section of hair from the ponytail and wrap it around the elastic to conceal it. Slick back your hair using hair gel. For extra length and volume, consider using clip-in hair extensions that match your natural hair colour.

Blake Lively tried out this faux perm style by curling her signature long, cascading hair into corkscrew curls. It’s giving major ’70s glam vibes.

The perm is riding high as one of the most popular celebrity hair trends of the moment, with Irina Shayk and Ashley Graham also fans.

Zendaya, on the flip side, is naturally gifted with gorgeous curls. To achieve the perfect curl, start by using OGX Argan Oil of Morocco Heat Protect Spray and a curling iron with a small barrel. Curl small sections of hair away from your face. Leave the ends out for a more natural finish. A light spritz of hairspray will hold the curls in place while maintaining movement and bounce.

3. The classic bob – Inspired by Emma Stone
