Blame Gretchen Wieners' circa-2004 mandate, but for a long time, we treated wearing a ponytail like sporting our favorite pair of ratty sweatpants in public: lazy, low-effort, and only to be done once a week max.

From Gabrielle Union and Bella Hadid to Jennifer Lopez and Chrissy Teigen, our favorite celebrities are showing the world that ponytails are a worthy part of any hairstyle repertoire. Before we do, we asked pro hairstylists Adir Abergel, creative director of Virtue and go-to guy for stars like Saoirse Ronan and Emilia Clarke, and Glen Coco Oropeza , whose clients include Teigen and Diane Guerrero, for all the ponytail tips we need to know for summer.

The 30-year-old actor is getting backlash after showing off his new dreadlocks on social media. But not everyone’s displeased.
