Though A-lister Florence Pugh chopped her blonde strands into a lob in 2022, the actor has proven time and time again that you can still get incredibly creative with short hair. Case in point: She recently attended the British Independent Film Awards with a boudoir-inspired ’60s flipped bob, not long after fanning her hair into a modern structural ’do for the BAFTAs. She also experimented with the wet look at the British Fashion Awards, and her tresses reached new edgy heights at Paris Fashion Week just this month.

Cementing the playful sentiment that those with short hair have more fun? The Don’t Worry Darling star arrived on the 95th annual Academy Awards red carpet with a sleek ponytail, coyly wrapped into a structural twist with the tips flared into micro bangs — all while looking like a dream in Valentino couture, might I add. It’s probably the most creative ponytail you’ve ever seen. When it comes to red carpets, Pugh struck pure gold with her loyal glam team — and her Oscars look was no different.

The actor paired her utterly cool hairdo and stunning dress with sultry eye makeup and a peachy nude lip, which came courtesy of Alex Babsky, who used Valentino Beauty (ICYWW, her semi-matte pout is thanks to Rosso Valentino Lipstick in the shade 112R). Matt Rez was the expert colorist who perfected her bright shade of crisp, golden blonde, while Peter Lux was the hairstylist mastermind behind Pugh’s show-stopping, structural Oscars pony. I don’t know about you, but I’m about get really experimental with my ponytails.
