The weekend is finally here and, after spotting the gorgeous Amanda Seyfried on the red carpet in LA this week, we thought it was the perfect time to take a look at party-ready ponytails! Her 'do from the LA premiere of A Million Ways to Die in the West was something of a dark horse with its loose rope twist and delicate windswept texture. It's definitely a look we plan on stealing!

The best thing about it is just how EASY this style is to recreate for a glamorous night out look of your very own. Despite the oh-so-glamorous finished product, it can actually be achieved in a matter of minutes, leaving you plenty of time to choose the right lipstick to go with it. To get the look, just follow the tutorial below...

Step one

Brush your hair through then mist evenly with salt spray. Brush it again and gather it all up into a high ponytail.

Step two

Take a section of hair from the pony, wrap it around the hair tie then pin underneath to hold it in place. Camouflage never seemed so chic!

Step three

Before creating the twist, back-comb the pony to boost volume then split it into two halves.

Step four

Twist each half separately but in the same direction. To create the rope, wind them around each other in the opposite direction to the one you twisted them in. So, if you twisted the separate sections clockwise, wind them anti-clockwise to form the braid. Once you get to the very ends, secure with a small hair elastic.

Step five

Spray your new 'do with more salt spray and you're done!

More where that came from

Amanda Seyfried isn't the only red carpet regular to champion this glammed-up classic either. At the Cannes Film Festival, L'Oréal Paris spokesperson and exceptional hair owner Blake Lively hit the red carpet at the opening ceremony with a loosely braided pony. Model Natasha Poly was also spotted in the South of France with a super sleek pony, too. Might some of our favorite celebrities be starting a mercifully accessible hairstyle trend? We hope so!
