Rose Byrne’s Messy High Ponytail Is the Perfect Summer Hairstyle

Australian actress Rose Byrne is best known for her roles in movies like Neighbors and Bridesmaids, and she most recently starred alongside Oprah Winfrey in the film adaptation of the book The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks.

Byrne is not only an amazing actress, but she also uses her fame to speak out on topics she feels strongly about such as the treatment of women in comedies. Can you say beauty and brains?

At a premiere for The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks, Byrne looked stunning wearing a simple, voluminous high ponytail and hot pink lipstick. Pumped up about this perfect pony, Yahoo Beauty tapped Stunning Braids author and hairstylist Monaè Everett to show us how to re-create this ideal summer hairstyle in this edition of Copy That.
