very disturbing site

Does anyone get disturbed by seeing this mid 80's style side ponytail?



If so beware....

While we were at one of the high school football games on Friday night I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw this girl that seemed to be part of a photography or journalist club. She was in the stands at the start of the game but then made her way to the sidelines to take pictures. My first thought was, "Holy crap she has a side ponytail, what is she thinking?" I tried to zoom in on her but the picture doesn't do her hairdo justice.



As the game went on I looked around to see if this girl was the only one that would dare do this and then proceed to go out in public. WELL....SHE WASN'T THE ONLY ONE! Several of the cheerleaders had side ponytails and then I counted at least 10 girls in the stands that were petitioning this weird "Do" to be back in style.

I looked all over for a specific picture of myself in the mid 80's sporting a side ponytail. I couldn't find it but vividly remember wearing my hair this way especially when I played my basketball games. I am going to continue to look for it and if I find it I will update this post.

Has anyone else seen this hairstyle coming back? What do you think about it? Will we soon see you wearing skinny jeans and side ponytails?

Angie, you need to be the heroine and tell the girls that it wasn't flattering the FIRST time around.

I haven't seen it here in NC yet...but it seems that these mountain folk are always behind the times! They are just now feeling the Z. Cavarrici jean craze! :)

You won't see this girl in skinny jeans or a side ponytail! It's not a flatering look on most people.

Holy crap! I haven't seen it here yet. Why do these things have to come back in style? I can never go back...

How gaggy can styles get??? I was just looking through pictures and yes, my 5th grade picture I am supporting one of those side ponys! How ugly then and now as well.

YUCK! No skinny jeans or side pony for me either. Although in HS is sported the side braid and I thought I was sooooo cooool! Ah, youth.

I was joking with my family a few weeks ago and said, "do you think the side ponytail will ever come back?" only to have my sister Lori tell me it has! What in the world?
