KK never looks anything but glam, and the same goes for her ponytail. This subtle pompadour style style looks extra chic with bold red lips and dramatic lashes.
Kristin Chenoweth brought her ponytail around to the side to keep a glitzy dress looking of-the-moment. We think this style would look even more fabulous with natural curls or waves.
