Ponytail Hairstyle

Don't call it a comeback. The ponytail is here to stay!

This go-to 'do popped up on the Spring 2011 runways of Band of Outsiders, Carlos Miele and Alexander Baradi (left), and we're taking notes!

But what's the trick to whipping up the perfect pony? It's all in the ponytail holder, stylist Matt Fugate of Sally Hershberger Downtown tells our beauty friends over at Refinery29.com.

"It's all in the band -- I recommend Blax Hair Elastics. Droopy ponytails are usually caused by worn-out elastics, so make sure you use one that's good quality and snag free," says Fugate.

And while the ponytail may already be a fixture in your hair routine, with the right tools, products and a bit of imagination, you can transform this simple style into a lust-worthy look.
