By now, we all know that three (celebrities) make a trend, so when we spotted six major ponytail looks in a row during awards season 2017, we were sold. Usually reserved for hat-hair fix-its and the sweltering dog days of summer, the ponytail, as seen on Jennifer Lopez, Sienna Miller, Tracee Ellis Ross and others, has officially been elevated from its messy-casual status to the epitome of red carpet glamour. Check out some of our favorite styles:
