How old is too old for a ponytail? Asking for a friend.
I was honestly thinking about that the other day when I noticed that a bunch of my friends had cut their hair into chic long bobs. Then it hit me again when I heard my girl Ariana Grande was giving hers up, at least temporarily.
I love the look but no matter how hard I try or how much I wish I could make it so, the look is not for me. I will be a 70-year-old woman with her hair in a ponytail. And not one of those George Washington/Colonial America ponytails, I’m talking a full volume, high ponytail. Although it won’t be a party pony because no matter how hard I try and how much ponytail work I do, I haven’t mastered the Hannah G. pretty party ponytail. Someone send me YouTube tutorials on how to master that.
I’m committed to a ponytail. I even wore my hair in one at my wedding. And I don’t regret it for a second. The ponytail is my signature look. Anna Wintour has the bob. Jenna Lyons has those glasses. Velma from Scooby Doo has the turtleneck. Lisa Rinna has the shag.
I have the pony.
And clearly, I fall more in line with the Velma/Rinna style file than Jenna or Anna. A little dated but very committed to the look.
