We love a red-carpet look we can mimic without pawning our laptops for a Serge Normant session. At this year’s 69th Annual Cannes Film Festival, the sunniest red carpet of the year, the light shone on just such a beauty trend. Women everywhere, rejoice: Your go-to hairstyle for exercising is now black-tie approved.

Sleek, youthful, feminine ponytails walked the rouge runway on multiple occasions. Two of Marc Jacobs’ sultriest muses, Bella Hadid and Adriana Lima, swapped their side sweeps for glossy, dramatically blunt tie-ups.

Blake Lively hoisted her signature waves into an elevated pony that showcased her pregnancy-enhanced tresses. Kendall Jenner, whose sisters usually opt for the low, middle-parted ponytail that sits at the nape of the neck, took a more textured take on the style during her jaunt to the Côte d’Azur.

For an A-list pony, all you need is a good boar-and-nylon bristle brush to smooth over the strand-forged speed bumps with which we’re perpetually plagued, along with hair serum, a tie and some finishing spray. Check out the how-to below to achieve the perfect gym silver screen-ready tail.
