Here we have Twilight star extraordinaire looking uber cas but uber fab as she has what might be for us just an ordinary day, minus the paparazzi frenzy. For this day, Ashley was just heading out to Starbucks to pick up an iced coffee and was caught looking super sweet as she did so. This is one of those looks that proves once again that you don’t need to always have fabby hair to pull off a glam look, you just need the right smile, and the right ensemble and you can get away with a ponytail super easy. At this stage in the game though, a ponytail isn’t always about just throwing your hair back, unless you want to pull a “just got out of rehab” look vis a vis Mischa Barton. You do need to actually use a brush, and taking a few extra minutes to sleek and shine isn’t going to hurt you either.
For this look though, you may need even less than a few extra minutes. You can get away with second day hair, so save some morning minutes and go without the wash. Dampen your soft bristle brush as you pull this ponytail back, and let it sit nice and high on the back of your crown like Ashley has here. If you have bangs, then you just need to bend your bangs under ever so slightly with your flat iron or curling iron or you can brush them back like Ashley has here. This is the cute part of the sexy look, the sexy comes with the outfit you pair it with. If you pull off the right look like Ashely has here and choose simple pieces that are casual, but fitted to your size and complement your figure, you can get away with the ponytail. By doing so, you can even pull this look off at the office if you want. Doing just that will ensure that if you are getting looks from the office crowd, they are the kind of looks you want. Go ahead and sleep in a little since you won’t have to worry about your hair. Even if you arrive a few minutes late looking THIS hot, you may be surprised at the positive reaction. And who doesn’t want to pull off an Ashley Greene look?
