The Messy Ponytail Is More Popular Than Ever—Here Are Our Favorite Looks

In the past, messy ponytails have gotten a bad rap, unfairly lumped into the categories of greasy, day-four hair or the ever-so-obvious "I slept through my alarm and just woke up 10 minutes ago." Hey, it happens to the best of us. (And sometimes we don't even have that excuse.)

However, if executed creatively, a messy ponytail not only transforms into a brilliant way to hide oil or due-for-color roots, but they also boast the potential to look seriously chic. And lately, our favorite celebrities have been working hard to dispel any of the former (i.e., sloppiness) and encourage all the latter (i.e., chicness). Ahead are 10 messy ponytails we'll be trying even when we do have all the time in the world to get ready.
