We already showed you an avant garde hanging ponytail from Paris couture week, but now we are back with a more wearable runway style. At his haute couture show, Elie Saab accented his ladylike gowns with an equally feminine hairstyle, displaying elaborate braided buns on his models.  In this style, two french braids begin at the hairline and make their way back to form a chunky plaited bun. This lovely look would be appropriate anywhere from the beach to the red carpet; we can’t wait to see some celebs rocking it!

Ponytails are a style classic. Season after season, we see them on the runways and on the street. There are two main reasons why: One, from sleek to deconstructed, low to high, the styling possibilities are endless; two, it is a quick and easy way to keep hair off the face. This modern version is something every girl with long locks should try. The hair is blown into textured waves, with a side-parting and a low-slung side pony (on the opposite side) creating a cute and sexy, lived-in look.

Short and layered, this modern graduation is a perfect fit for Ashley. Her eyes have the allure of the deep blue sea, so the focus of any style should be to expose and highlight this incredible feature. Happily, she’s got sexy side bangs that glide across her baby blues, making them pop. Ashlee has a great base for blonde. Her skin tone and eye color are complimentary, and flaxen helps her look like a bubbly and fun American Gal.

Known for her soft, sexy curls, Veronica Lake is the epitome of classic Hollywood glamour. The 1940s star was loved for her signature peekaboo hairstyle, which provided her with just the right amount of mystique. With her sweeping hair and seductive gaze, Veronica Lake truly had an enviable beauty. Her cascading waves are constantly replicated on the red carpet, and we seriously doubt they will ever go out of style.
