Kerry Washington's Pretty Ponytail: Copy Her Look!

Celebrity Beauty Apr. 30, 2013 AT 1:30PM

This pony has legs! In lieu of quickly and messily gathering your hair into a casual ponytail, spend a bit more time on it and you'll have a hairstyle that can take you from day to night.

The three secrets that will elevate this classic style from ho-hum to hot-haute? Flat-ironing your locks, creating a deep side part, and concealing the elastic by wrapping a section of hair around it. Kerry Washington, no stranger to chic hairstyles, rocked the sophisticated and pretty ponytail at the SAG awards earlier this year. Fellow beauty all-stars Beyonce, Jessica Alba, and Lauren Conrad have also all tried the polished pony.
