Middle-aged men with ponytails
 
Seriously, why do you do it? There's half a dozen here at work and it looks truly and utterly ridiculous.
Is it simply to disguise that old friend the Mullet you can't bring yourself to have cut off?

Men with pony tails such as Steven Segal say:

I like the variant with bold on the top and a pony tail of the leftovers.

See it on the positive side: this environment will make you look better!

I think my judgment of this is clouded by living in Daytona Beach for faaaaaaaar too long... I LIKE guys with ponytails, regardless of age. :msntongue:

Of course, this depends upon the rest of the package though. Some guy looking all "preppy" but with a ponytail looks funny but if he seriously looks like he could hop on a Harley (or seems the type to participate in medieval reenactments), it's just fine. ;)

Well, I was going to say "it all depends" but that person/guy is totally disgusting so I am going with "no, it looks crap" :msncool:

Never mind that, how many men in Switzerland have a pony tail AND earings..

yes earings.. i've seen men with not only one but 2 earings .. wtf..

If this is a part of the test in how to get a C permit, them i'm out.. no way i will grow a pony tail and pierce my ears :msnsarcastic:

I second Little Helper, only Captain Jack Sparrow looks good with a pony tail. I just can't imagine the bathroom routine - faffing about with conditioner and then combing through any knots...it's just not manly is it?!

You need to go around the office with a pair of scissors & clean house.
