We love the ponytail and why not? These days you can wear them to the gym then later that evening to a five-star restaurant. They look adorable on short hair and sexy on long, layered hair. "Done," perfectly brushed, flat-ironed hairstyles are back in style, and you can wrap a piece of hair around the ponytail holder to make it a bit more formal. Curl your hair first for volume, if you want or flat-iron it for a super sleek look. Even mussy is cool, because who has time for perfection when there's the Internet to surf, the kids to feed and the beach to walk on?

Here, we rundown 20-plus great ponytails and how to style them.
