4 Ponytail Lessons From Blake Lively
Does flawless even appear in Blake Lively's world? Whether it be her career, love life or beauty, she seems to have it all together. She also has her way to make a ponytail appear modern and edgy with unconventional styling tricks. 1. Play up a high ponytail with a simple braid. Take during the 2009 Emmy Awards. Blake rocked the red carpet with a stunning red dress with sequin details and high ponytail with braid details. To recreate this look, tie your hair back into a high ponytail. Take a small section from the ponytail tail and clip it aside. Then, make a simple braid with the rest of the hair until you reach the ends. Finally, release the clipped hair, wrap it around the ponytail hiding the elastic and secure it with pins.

2. Take an edgy spin with a fishtail braid. Fishtail braids are often styled on the side but Blake made it more interesting by creating an undone look at her Salvage premier. She styled the tousled fishtail braid in a high ponytail and finished it off by tying her matte-textured hair around the end of tail. To match her stunning yellow dress, she added a shimmery ponytail holder at the base.

3. Three is the lucky number! During Met Gala 2013 Blake was spotted with a three section 'do. This was done by putting the top section into a ponytail and loop ends through to create a second one. Repeating this until you have three connected ponytails. 4. Don't be afraid to mix and match. Blake is also on top of her game. In 2009, at the Society of Memorial Sloan event she made an elegant hybrid of a curl pin updo with a low ponytail. You can recreate this style by pin curling the top section of the hair and tie the rest of the hair in a low ponytail.
You can't deny she's an expert with ponytails. Which one(s) is your favorite?
