Pigtails and ponytails are a classic in anyone’s hair rotation, but the braided ponytail is having a serious moment right now — and Ashley Graham is the latest to co-sign the style. On March 5, the model attended the Mytheresa dinner in Paris wearing a chic, fashion-week-worthy version of the hairstyle.
Graham’s hair was slicked-back, divided down the middle, and sectioned into two extra-long braids that grazed the floor. To finish the look, Graham kept her makeup and nails simple — opting for satin skin and supermodel nails.
Braided ponytails and pigtails have been seen everywhere lately, from runways to red carpets. Most recently, Rihanna wore a similar style when she performed at the Super Bowl Halftime show. The look is extremely easy to do at home, and if you want the extra-long length that Graham has, you can add extensions. Use braided ponytails as a base for more intricate-looking bun hairstyles or you can use the braids to create interesting shapes for more eye-catching, avant-garde looks. To elevate it even more, add some personality with hair accessories like rhinestones, butterfly clips, or bows. It’s easy to take this fairly simple look and make it runway ready.
