How to Wear a High Ponytail

Vanessa Hudgens's Fuss-Free Hairstyle You Should Try

The holidays are prime time to test drive all those glitzy styles you've been eyeing all year. But between gift-giving and cocktailing, sometimes low-maintenance hair is a must. Enter Vanessa Hudgens. The actress stunned at an event last night wearing a ponytail that was more chic than cheerleader. The secret? Tons of texture and amped-up makeup.

A high ponytail like Vanessa's already offers plenty of polish, so make sure things aren't too slick. A quick spritz of a texturizing spray, like Alterna Ocean Waves Texturizing Spray ($20), offers up great movement and gives your hair some grip. Sweep your hair into a high ponytail with your hands, but don't worry about it being too perfect. Wrap a small piece of hair around your elastic, and finish with a cat eye and a glossy lipstick. Your pony will look party-perfect — miles away from the football field sidelines.
