Carrie Underwood Chic, Blonde Ponytail
Carrie Underwood's girly ponytail is so easy to do. Steal her style: 1. This look works best on dirtier hair, because it gives your pony some grip. Rub texturizing mousse through dry hair and let it set. 2. Use your fingers to comb your hair into a low ponytail. Secure it with an elastic, and tug at the back of your head to add a bit of volume. 3. Smooth your bangs behind your ear, and mist hair with a light-hold hairspray.

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
Ashlee Simpson Sedu, Sophisiticated Ponytail
Ashlee Simpson's sleek ponytail is just as chic as your friend's labor-intensive updo. Best of all, it's way easy. See how to do it: 1. Mist your damp hair with a generous amount of shine spray. Use a fine-tooth comb to create a slightly-off center part that extends to the middle of your head only. 2.Using the fine tooth comb, comb the parted hair slick to either side, then comb the rest back and collect it all at the nape of your neck (or make it a side-pony) and secure with an elastic. 3. Cover the elastic with a strip of hair and hide the ends underneath the base using a pin. 4. Brush out the tail with another mist of shine spray. 5. If the ends of your ponytail aren't stick-straight, use a flat iron (your trusty Sedu, perhaps?) to get them looking perfectly sleek.
