When your own hair doesn’t want to cooperate, a sew-in seems like too much of a commitment, and the goal is simply to add length to a slicked-back style, many women opt for a hair quickie: the phony pony. For decades now, faux ponytails have been spotted on the likes of our elders (no shade to those fab ladies at church every Sunday maw’nin), everyday women, and celebs alike. Over the last couple years, especially, the phony pony has seen a resurgence on the big screen and red carpet. It has sat high and low on the crowns of our most popular starlets, and come in lengths from just past the shoulders to damn near sweeping the floor (Ahem, Chrissy Lampkin. Hey girl!).

So, we’re curious to know, would you rock a faux ponytail? Spill it.

    there’s someting about fake hair in general that just makes me uncomfortable…But the fake ponytail when you can usually see the difference in texture/color/thickness between the real hair and the ponytail is just horrible.

      Agreed, that is when I don’t like them, if you keep it as close to natural as possible then it’s a winner

    traction aloe piece ya.

  • I would, but like previous comments, they definitely have to match my hair texture, AND in my opinion, I’d only rock a “believeable” length!

    because most black women purchase hair of other races, so the ponytail, weave, wig comes off looking like the lowest self esteem possible, like they love white textures and can’t stand their own NATURAL texture. Bottom line non-white hair on a black woman that is not hers LOOKS LOW IQ AND STUPID!
