How to style hair like Olivia Munn & other celebs
Stars are taking the casual weekend hair staple to the next level, with a glam spin on one of our favorite ’80s hairstyles: the side ponytail.

Everyone, from Blake Lively to Pippa Middleton and Kirsten Dunst, have been spotted sporting side ponytails on the red carpet, showing how to take the retro ‘do to glam new levels.

And now you can steal their secrets to making the side-pony night-out ready for an easy and festive hairstyle to get you through the holidays.

Creating a side ponytail couldn’t be easier: It’s as simple as taking your tried-and-true pony and moving it a few inches in one direction.

Once you make that move, you can put your own spin on it. Sleek and sexy? Romantic and curly? Tousled and loose? Anything goes — as long as you keep your pony low. Raise the side pony up a few inches and prepare for ’80s references rather than complements.

Keep the style loose, and pull out a few face-framing wisps to keep the look romantic and effortless for a fresh, modern feel.

For your next holiday party, we especially like a romantic take on the side-pony using loose waves to dress it up.  And the good news is that it’s very easy to recreate in no time at all.

Just click through our hair-how gallery for easy-to-follow steps to recreating a stylish side style for your next holiday party — plus, more star-inspired side-pony styles.

What’s your take on the trend: Best left in the ’80s or worth bringing back? Weigh in below.
