Hmmm...has anyone paused to consider that otherwise bald men who choose to wear ponytails are not trying to look 'sexy' or to impress anyone? Could it be that they like the look? I'm just wondering why they should be criticised so harshly.

No, I am not bald with a ponytail, but I don't believe there is any good reason to bad-mouth a guy who chooses that hair style.

Just my humble opinion.

bald men are sexy. bald men with a ponytail are not.

I agree, how can you bald with a ponytail? Personally I think it is ugly.

I think the pony tail is tacky, just shave the head you will look better

I have seen men with a ponytail but otherwise bald. I don't like the look

I think if I did that my wife would refuse to be seen in public with me. She's not thrilled about having to do it now.

I say... how can you have a ponytail if you are bald? emoticon On the other hand, a man with a ponytail and not much else for hair looks silly to me.

Comb overs are worse. Pony tails on men regardless of how much hair they have just screams wanna be players. ugh.

Bald men with pony tails have some serious self-image problems. They are usually driving their mid-life crisis convertible sports cars, which in turn are compensating for a deficient part of their male anatomy.

I think bald is sexy if you have the face and nice head for it. The pony tail in a braid isn't near as bad as the comb over. I cannot stand to look at Donald Trump because of his hair.

It's not pretty, but who are we to judge,
we are not pretty to some people time either.

I agree with those that say there are too many other issues facing us to condemn a man because he decides to grow a pony tail if he's bald.

Well, I remember a boss of mine (and I really liked him -- he was so nice) walking outside on a windy day when work was over, and his hair was uplifted. Because he used lots of hairspray to keep everything in place, the hair went up in one layer and came back down when he caught it from the wind. He saw me looking at him when it happened, and needless to say, his face turned a couple of shades pinker. Some things you JUST remember! To me, be yourself....I'll love you all the same. At the point you have to do a comb-over or a pony-tail with no hair on top....well, you better have a Great Personality instead!!!

Its okay with me, its their head. On a personal opinion, I think they should try embracing the baldness.

Those men with pony tails would probably look much better with their heads totally shaved.

I guess it's no worse than those awful comb-overs. I remember one day I woke up about the same time as my dad, and when he turned around I realized that the hair on the left side of his head was about 8 or 10 inches's the part he would comb over his bald top to try and look young. I almost choked trying not to laugh. Personally, I think MOST bald men with pony-tails look ridiculous.... BUT I have seen some really buff guys out there who just happen to have a really thinning top, but a gorgeous long tail...and I've gotta admit that on a certain type of guy, I find it attractive.

I don't mind, I like people who are a little odd, or who think outside the box. Aren't afraid to express their individuality, I guess.

I vote no on the "skullet." Just accept the baldness, embrace the hairless look, enjoy the freedom of no hair.

Not a style I would choose - but I've known other men to pull it off. (There have been lots of others who DIDN'T pull it off, too.)

If DH were bald, I would ask him to get a short haircut, however I would tend to look away from anyone else with bald ponytail. I wonder if maybe they can't afford a haircut?

I call that a 'skullet' and it is worse than a mullet. It may have worked for Ben Franklin, but it ain't working today.

I am bald so I just cut it short.

I started going bald and I finally decided that a clean shaved head was my path. Some dudes can't accept that path and will hang on to every single hair they can keep and make it long for whatever reason. If they are SINGLE men looking for sexy hott young things then go total bald and keep the comb-over away or the classic MONK look. But they're already married and not looking then i say whatever their spouse can handle, let it be.

When men lose their hair on top, is letting the rest of it grow long and wearing it in a pony tail as bad as a comb over?

I vote yes. Give it up, Guys, it's not sexy.
