Another reason why I'm patiently growing my hair longer -- the fancy ponytail. I just can’t pass up the chance to discuss a good showing when I see one. Behold, Kate Beckinsale’s voluminous pony at the U.S. premiere of Going the Distance in LA this week. A combination of back-combing and finger-combing made this bodacious updo possible—it’s one part girl next door, another part professional athlete, and 100 percent red-carpet-ready. I can't wait to try this one. Maybe in 5 months I finally can with my locks inches longer!
