    I don't really see guys with ponytails that often anymore, usually the ones I do are either goths or foreign people.

    Are they the ultimate male fashion faux pas?

    It must get annoying keeping it clean.

    Don't have anything against them but I think behind every ponytail there's an *********.

    I wanted a ponytail when I had a really warped view on how people would see what I wore etc. They CAN look good on certain people, though.

    As long as it's looked after and you've got the face for it, I think they can be quite attractive... but I grew up watching medieval/fantasy films with my Dad, so I have a curious fixation with long-haired guys. :p:

    Erm, no lol

    I have long hair. When it's down it's around the small of my back, sometimes tying it up just makes life easier.

    What the hell are you basing this "ponytail/********" thing on?

    It's like saying all guys with shaved heads are thugs =/

    And it's not hard to keep it clean. I wash my body I wash my hair. Simple as

    How is having long hair lazy?

    You wouldn't call a girl lazy because she has long hair

    I associate ponytails with 80's yuppies on the American stock exchange.

    I have long enough hair for a ponytail, but i would never wear one in public. I wouldn't say it's the ultimate faux pas though, when compared against mullets or drawn-on felt-tip pen moustaches

    Do you know why it's called a pony tail on blokes? Because if you lift it up you'll see an ******** underneath!

    You don't see it that often these days. It suits a few people, but the majority just look ridiculous. Especially when they reach a certain age and the hair line begins to recede.

    but how often do see a guy with a ponytail in comparison to shorter hair?

    also, its just because guys i knew who went through their grunge phase, just said 'they couldn't be bothered to cut it'... 3 of them soon conformed, cut it off, and their faces look SO much better.
