Though I was quite disappointed to see the clothes on this year’s Academy Awards red carpet (bo-oring), it was interesting to note that there was one hairstyle that seemed to be favored by many celebrities that night : pony tail!
I never thought that pony tails can be worn for formal events, but I guess you could. And the nicest things about it is it doesn’t even look hard to recreate it yourself at home without the help of a hairstylist. From the way I see it, you can just blowdry your hair, smooth some hair glossing products, tie it in a loose pony tail and you’re ready to go! Or you could use curling irons and hair rollers first to give the pony tail a bit of flirty curls (like Anne Hathaway or Nancy O’Dell did). I like that this style conveys the message that you are not trying too hard. It’s effortless chic!
