While hairstyles go in and out of fashion, the ponytail (iphondo) is a timeless classic that will always have its place - what ever the season, what ever the era. This is probably because this hairstyle has managed to reinvent itself over the years and can come in different shapes, sizes and textures.

Over the past few years, we’ve seen the ponytail evolve from just being an additional piece of hair that you add to the top of your sleekly-pulled hair to it becoming a centrepiece that can be worn anywhere on your head – on whichever type of hairstyle you may have on.

Let’s take a look at how some of our favourite celebrities and hair influencers have styled their ponytails for some inspo:
