I know this post will probably come across as shallow...but I need to vent! This week, I was at a large meeting where two men were wearing ponytails, who had no business wearing them.

Guy #1 was in his 40s, hair thinning at the crown (one step away from bald), sporting a 7-8 inch scraggly ponytail. Guy #2 looked to be close to 60, bald, with a thin, itty-bitty little ponytail, held back with a rubberband.

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.

UGH! Men with pony tails either can't afford a decent hair cut or are lame lazy dudes. Most of them are lame lazy dudes...........

Every few years, my son (early 30s) lets his hair grow to the middle of his back and wears them in a long pony tail. His hair is thick and black, quite beautiful actually, but I never like the look. I don't voice my opinion, however. His hair, his choice.

I do agree with you on bald men and ponytails. The only thing worse is bald men and comb-overs.

I don't personally care for the ponytails on men.

Ponytails seem to be out of fashion for women, but men who wear them...I think environmental scientist or something, for some reason, although some bikie types like it for some reason.

One of my late friends wore his hippy-era ponytail into his 50s. It was gray and halfway down his back, and he was balding on top. He didn't give a damn what anyone said/thought, he was happy with it.

He had a lot of self-confidence.

I don't know; opinion, public forum, venting, fashion forum perhaps?

Guy has to be over 6 to pull a pony tail successfully. It looks bizarre on shorties.
