Casual enough for a day at the office and yet still red carpet worthy, the humble ponytail is certainly a versatile little minx. Ever since Beyonce sashayed onto the red carpet at the 2015 Met Gala with the high ponytail to end all high ponytails, we’ve been not-so-secretly lusting after this trend.

The best part about the high pony trend is that it’s easy enough to recreate ourselves. While it’s (unfortunately) a little more involved than that ponytail we chuck our hair into en route to the gym, if you follow a few of our simple tips and tricks, you’ll have the hang of it in no time.
