The Most Memorable Celebrity Ponytails Through The Decades

This hairdo hasn't failed us yet!

The ponytail doesn't get the respect that it's due. It may be a pretty straightforward hairstyle, but the versatility of this look proves why it has remained popular throughout history.

Fifties actresses Sandra Dee and Audrey Hepburn sported ponytail hairstyles that are perfect for shoulder-length locks. There's no need to look further than Catherine Deneuve for voluminous pony inspiration. And we all know that Ariana Grande learned her high ponytail tricks from the original pop princess, Mariah Carey. However, no one wears a polished pony quite like Kate Middleton.
