Ashley Greene Chic, Straight, Brunette Ponytail with Highlights
Ashley Greene's gorgeous side ponytail looks great on medium-length hair. See how to get the look: 1. Apply smoothing cream to damp hair and part it to the side. Blow dry hair straight using a paddle brush, lifting at the roots to add volume. 2. Once your hair is dry, gather it at the nape of your neck, slightly to the side. Secure your ponytail with an elastic just under your ear, and tug on it to loosen it a bit. 3. Mist all over with anti-humidity hairspray to keep flyaways at bay.

Nicole Richie Medium-Length, Blonde Ponytail
Nicole Richie's low ponytail and sweeping bangs make a sophisticated style. Get the look: 1. Apply volumizing mousse to damp hair. 2. Blow dry hair with a large paddle brush, brushing it under (with the brush under the hair as you pull it through). The paddle brush will help smooth out your hair. Blow dry bangs across forehead and off to the side. 3. Use a straightening iron to smooth out 2-inch sections of hair on the sides, in front and in back. Lightly tease hair at the crown of your head for a little extra volume. Smooth top layer over it. 4. Leaving bangs free, pull rest of hair back into a ponytail, based slightly above the nape of your neck and to the side, and secure with an elastic band. 5. For bangs, apply a small amount of hair wax to sweep them across your forehead and off to the side. Set the look with a light-hold hairspray. See More Nicole Richie Hairstyles
Jessica Simpson Ponytail for Square Shaped Faces
Jessica Simpson's laidback pony with a slight side part is great for softening a square jaw. To get the look: 1. First prep damp hair with a shine serum. 2. Using a flat paddle brush, blow out hair until straight and smooth, focusing heat down the shaft of the hair for extra shine. 3. Once hair is dry, separate hair into two sections with a comb: one section being the first inch of hair surrounding your face and the other section is the rest of your scalp. Secure the big section into a medium-high ponytail. 4. Use your blow dryer and a medium-barreled round brush to smooth out hair and create volume around your face. Mist with hairspray.
