Well this honestly isn't a yes or no, either or, answer. I personally find all kinds of hair styles attractive. Is a ponytail one of them? OH ABSOLUTELY! I've always like how ponytails can look. I especially LOVE a ponytail when it's pulled through the back of a baseball cap. Is it a style I want to see all the time? No. Is it a style I think every woman should wear? No. In fact I also like at times for the hair to be down. I also like short hair on women where a ponytail really wouldn't be an option. Here's the thing. There is one amazing thing about hair and hair styles. Unless you do something drastic, like shave yourself bald, you can always change your hair style. Heck, you can even change the color. There should be no reason to really overly worry about hair. If you want to wear it in a ponytail today do it. If you want to wear it down do it. It's your hair. Wear it how you like. You'll find guys who like it one way and other guys who like it another. With most anything that has to do with how you look, the best thing a person can do is pick what makes them happy and what they like. If you like wearing your hair in a ponytail, do so. If you find a guy who doesn't like that then obviously he isn't the guy for you. Be you. Do what YOU want. If you work to please the guys you'll be working for your whole life. Find a way to make yourself happy then find a guy who likes you for you. Any guy worth anything will want you to be happy with yourself.
Hair down is what I like the most, but I've seen girls with ponytails and average cloths that is still really breath taking, it works differently for each girl but having the hair down seems to work the best for most!
Well either can look very nice depending on the girl and how they want to appear, to me a ponytail can make her seem very cute and somewhat bubbly and I think it looks very nice with clothes that are brighter and don't reveal as much, while with the hair down can be more beautiful and serious, and fits more clothing styles as well. But that's just me.
Yes, I personally like ponytails far more than l like other styles, of course there are exceptions, I like buns but hate pig tails, curly hair looks better down than in ponytails, but, yes, guys do like ponytails.
Hairs depend on the person concerned. Some may look good in one some may look good in another get my point. Whatever you do never put too much makeup. Being a guy I prefer natural beauty rather than someone overfed with purfumes or paint . Minimal makeup is preferable. Be proud of yourself nd walk confidently. I would always prefer a girl with a strong personality.
A lot of girls like to wear their hair down because it's obvious that it somewhat distracts from the facial features, so even if the girl isn't beautiful, but has a nice head of hair, she'll look more appealing when she wears her hair down. As supposed to a ponytail which brings your face into focus, so this hairstyle -even though it's very simple- is risky for some girls. That's why all the girls I know who have short hair have really pretty faces!
And I more often than not wear my hair in a ponytail...it's just practical, and it's fun.
