How to Style a Ponytail Like Gigi Hadid
Gigi Hadid does many things well—slays runways, maintains an enviable squad, shuts down body-shamers, and most importantly, rocks a ponytail like no other. Whether it’s for a black-tie affair or a stroll through NYC, this supermodel can almost always be spotted rocking a pulled-back pony that seems to perfectly complement her outfit and/or makeup, no matter the occasion. So, the next time you’re heading to the gym, going on a date, or heading to a formal affair and you don’t know what to do with your hair, just ask yourself, What would Gigi do?

A high ponytail with loose wavy ends was a casual complement to Hadid’s colorful, formfitting minidress. To re-create that beachy texture, spray the ends of your ponytail with Bumble and Bumble's City Swept Finish ($43), tousle, and go.

When rocking a LBD on the red carpet, the model went full-on glamour girl with her beauty look, wearing a black cat eye and bright red lips. But in true Gigi form, she added a loosely curled pony to keep the look from looking too stiff. Start with a root-lifting spray (we like GHD's Root Lift Spray, $20) to add body, and use a large-barrel curling iron to add the curls.
