Men in Ponytails


I like this guy. Really, I do. He's Chef Molto Mario (Mario Batali) from Food Network, and he's a great Italian chef. No doubt about it.

But I can't watch his show because he's sporting a #&!?@ ponytail that is slicked back and greased up so much that his head looks like an olive-oiled melon with a red beard. He has disturbed my delicate sensibilities. :)

I'm not even sure I like men with long hair. Take a gander at this:


What do you think of men in ponytails? Men: Do you now, or would you ever, sport a ponytail?

I agree...ponytails on men are a crime against humanity.

And I have no real good reason for knowing this, but it's true. I like long hair on me (I also like short hair on me because I have a nicely shaped non-cone like head). But I think most men look better with short hair....Unless they have fabulous non-greasy lovely soft hair...

But usually you see the guy with gross split ends, skimpy weak hair, sometimes gray and yellow...thank you, I'm going to go throw up now.

Those early 90's mullets were almost as bad as the pony tails, I will never 'sport' either. Unfortunately, being somewhat of a geek, I have seen more than my fair share of reasty pony tails. The only positive thing I can say about pony tails on men is they are better than dreads.

One of my guy friends sported a ponytail, it was okay but I don't normally like them.

I like the casual look of a ponytail on a female, but no, I'd never have one. I look dumb enough as it is.

Hi Jen, so are you saying you're neutral about ponytails? :)

Tanya, I'm with you. Men aren't great about their hair in general. BTW, are you sure you're pregnant because you keep saying you're going to give birth, but so far, nothin'. I wait. I wait. I wait.

Sushiboy, mullets are the worst! Check out my next post, coming up in a moment...

Teri, the man of your dreams might be in the next post. Check it out.

Growing up, I had long hair off and on. Until I was 30. Now I have a buzz cut and LOVE it. Of course I have a bushy mustache, but cut me some slack. I have a beard but I keep that close-cropped too. I think those guys should shave it and donate it all to Locks Of Love.

I already look like a douche bag, I don't need a pony tail.

Dick, I had no idea you had all that facial hair. I guess I keep thinking you look exactly like Tom DeLay--I don't know why though.

Nobody, you don't look like a db! I've seen your picture, you look great! But no, please, no ponytails or mullets, or I'll never again let you know important things, like where to guy Shut the Hell Up Gum.

Well, I have to admit having a ponytail for about 4+ years. It was something one should do at least once. I enjoyed it, although it was a pain in the arse to keep tidy. It's life ended in a hairdresser in a South Carolina mall sometime around 94/95.

I have pictures.

Has anyone here ever met a man with a pony tail that wasn't a complete douche? I don't think it's coincidence that virtually every piece of media satire regarding generally crappy, ignorant and usually annoying people depicts them with a ponytail. If you were to find the most pretentious asshole you know, I'd bet my life savings he would be sporting a ponytail.
