The side ponytail is clearly having a moment. Zoe Kravitz rocked a high pony at the 2016 Volkswagon Passat launch that gave us the most delightful ’80s vibes.

Tika Sumpter is one of those rare beauties that can go from short to long or straight to curly, and nail every single style. She slayed at the Super Bowl 50 Apparel Unveiling with sleek shoulder-length strands.

Ms. Simmons is not playing when it comes to her fashion. She sizzled in a black lace number and added an electric pop of pink color — just so you know she means business.

Because how else do you rock your hair when performing for the coolest President of all time? We loved Chrisette’s short platinum blonde cut at the 45th Annual Legislative Conference of the Congressional Black Caucus.

Though Nene Leakes rarely does a color other than blonde, she’s the ultimate hair chameleon when it comes to styles. Her latest? A low side ponytail in a striking platinum blonde hue.
