Jessie J, Fergie, Melanie Fiona and Tia Carrere all pulled their hair up tight into high, glossy ponytails at the 2012 Grammys. The look is at once simple and dramatic—and it’s a fun way to show-off extra long extensions. Wrapping a section of hair around the base of the ponytail and securing it with a bobby pin conceals the elastic and dresses the look up for the red carpet. Fergie, who won for her “All of the Lights” collaboration, used this very trick.
