Golden Globes Hair: The Ponytail Prevails

Lorde, Chrissy Teigen and Katie Holmes prove that the pony isn't just for SoulCycle anymore

Generally, there's nothing about an awards show red carpet that says sporty, but at the Golden Globes, several stars were wearing their hair in a traditionally sporty style: the ponytail.

Tiny Fey, Chrissy Teigen, Katie Holmes and Lorde all had varying forms of ponytails hanging behind their heads.

Messy (Teigen), sleek (Fey), long and low (Holmes) and severe (Lorde), the ponytail has taken on all forms, and surprisingly it has worked across the board.

We're used to Lorde's unruly mane of curls, but the slicked-back ponytail complements her black pantsuit perfectly. And the piecey quality of Teigen's pony gives a playful contrast to her heavily beaded Zuhair Murad gown.

Perhaps it's the influence of the at-leisure trend that's behind all the ponytails or just a practical way to keep hair in place without it looking rigid.
