Award show season typically brings bouncy blowouts, glossy waves and intricate updos to the red carpet. And on Saturday’s Screen Actors Guild Awards, we certainly saw all three, but also a collection of an unexpected hairstyle: playful ponytails! Below, we’ve highlighted four of our favorites, as seen on Rooney Mara, Sophie Turner, Kristen Wiig and Amanda Peet.

For tonight’s star-studded event, Mara turned to her mane man, celebrity hairstylist Adir Abergel, for a sleek two-part ponytail to pair with her sexy, plunging Valentino gown (a look she matched with her sister, Kate!).
“A modern take on the classic ponytail for the one and only #rooneymara for the #sagawards tonight. #doubleponytail #ponytail #sleek #hairbyadir,” Adir said of the inspiration behind the brushed-back updo on Instagram.

Turner turned up the va-va-volume with her take on the playful updo, opting for teased tresses at the crown and mega body in the back. And as an added bonus, she wrapped a strand of her own hair around the base of the pony, creating one chic hairstyle.

To pair with her strapless white-and-black Roland Mouret jumpsuit, Wiig pulled her hair back into a sleek ponytail with mega volume at the crown, where her hairstylist teased the strands to stand, and added a few face-framing pieces to create a not-so-polished effect.

And lastly, Peet joined fellow ponytail pals with her take on the hairstyle: a center-parted, slightly messy updo. She paired the look with a gorgeous white gown and oversize dazzling hoop earrings.
