How to Master the Stegosaurus Pony: One Editor Attempts the Tricky Trend

Associate Editor Brittany Talarico gets pro tips on how to achieve her dream hairdo (of the moment, anyway!)
I have very long, very straight hair, so I’m always looking for ways to change up my mane game. Luckily, my job exposes me to tons of celebrity hairstyles. (And I get to share them with you!) The recent one I’m obsessing over — what editors have coined the “Stegosaurus Pony” (aka the triple pony or bumpy pony).

When I first saw the trend on Blake Lively and Nina Dobrev, I put it on my hair wishlist, but I assumed I would never, ever be able to replicate it myself. Then Jennifer Morrison brought it into fall, and I knew I had to try!

I don’t want to give away too much (that’s what the video above is for!) but I will give myself a pat on the back — and a shoutout to my amazing teacher Halli at the John Barret Salon for guiding me in my attempt to re-create the do.

Was I successful? You’ll have to watch to find out. And tell me: Are you a fan of this style? What celebrity hair looks are you dying to try on yourself? Share your thoughts below, and we might try them for you!

No, I am not a fan I think it looks messy, not elegant at all.

Maybe with an extra hump, it might have looked better. Or maybe with a longer weave, and more hair to “pony” it might have looked better. Though I liked it on Nina Dobrev, Blake Lively and Jennifer Morrison, there’s something off with this hairstyle on Brittany. It like it wasn’t long enough and didn’t have enough humps to properly pull it off.
