We’re Loving Yaya’s High and Mighty Ponytail

Yaya has beautiful hair and that’s a given. The favorite nurse on NBC’s hit drama “Chicago Med” is not one to be on social media as much as other stars but when she’s on, she gives good face. The former model turned actress has gorgeous natural hair and can be seen rocking her curls everywhere from on set to on the red carpet. And a few days ago the star graced us with a massive high ponytail that would make any woman envious.

Yaya knows how to make waves — we love this look with a scarf wrapped around her high ponytail. And it works perfectly with her fashion-ready in jean shorts, white tank, and strappy heels. But her hair is everything!


We love the fullness and height and even if you do not have that much hair or volume you can create this style with ease. Simply add some hair to get fullness and the proper elevation to have all eyes on your ponytail too.
