Forgive me, please, but why do men do this to themselves? Do they think they look good? Very unattractive, in my opinion. On the other hand, there's a 30-ish guy at work with gorgeous, thick, clean hair...I know a lot of women would kill to have hair as beautiful as his. He always wears it in a ponytail, and it looks great!

I'm sorry, but unless you have hair like this (see pic), you have no business wearing a ponytail. Signed, The Hair Police.

P.S. I am NOT criticizing bald men. Just crappy looking ponytails.

LOL this is a fun thread, for me. My hubby just cut his ponytail a few months ago, and is wearing his thick, almost-black hair in a very nice layered cut. He wears corporate casual shirts with Levis most of the time and Dockers or something close to that when in important meetings and looks awesome.

I think ponytails can be extremely sexy on the right man with the right hair.

I agree with you on the pony tail thing and add my 2 cents in on it like age appropriate?!?! I have grown out my hair on several occassions to cut it off for employment reasons.

Currently I have it short and really don't plan on growing it out, I feel at 46 its time to look like an adult as far as hair length. I do have a full head of hair so growing it isn't a problem but being respected by people who you come in contact with can be a big deal...

I think if a man has a full head of hair, a long ponytail is totally HOT!
Men who are balding in front however seem like their over compensating.
And straggly ponytails don't look good on either sex. I can understand why men in a professional environment cut their's off though - it can really effect their careers. My DH cut his off for the very same reason.

Ponytails on men turn me on, always have. And I had to smile at that photo of Antonio Banderas because that's my very favorite look on him.

I don't even mind them on thinning heads. But if it's just side hair getting pulled back then I don't like it, either. Time to shed the look.

I concur.... Plus, the "tail look" depends on the man as well, I think, as in regards to body type and clothes...and just plain style! It can look "chic" if the man is "pulled together", but on a former hippie, it can look dated. And on a biker....well... that is a category unto itself!

And I have to add that Antonia HAS some competition...for who remembers Adrian Paul from The Highlander?? WHOA NELLY!!!!!!

To each his own, but only men with really good hair can carry them off; older men with thinning hair look ridiculous. Years ago hubby said that after he retired he may just grow his hair out, put it in a ponytail and get an earring -- I told him that I'd let him get it to his desired length, then when he was asleep, I'd get my sharp scissors and cut it off and leave it on his pillow -- the ponytail, that is -- and forget the earring! Of course he was teasing, just as I was....well maybe.
