Sure, Beyonce made a huge announcement at last night’s MTV Video Music Awards (something about a baby…), but we were totally distracted by her fierce ponytail!

Loosely curled and swept to one side, this casual-yet-glam ‘do was easily the hottest hairstyle of the night. To get the look at home, spritz dry roots with a volumizer like Big Sexy Hair Humidity Resistant Volumizing Spray ($16,, back-comb a bit at roots, and set on large hot rollers. Once cool, remove rollers and use fingers to smooth hair into a loose side-pony.

Voila! Instant Beyonce-fierceness.
