The Side Pony Tail

I have to say right up front that I haven't been a fan of the side pony tail. I don't like it. I don't do it. Quite frankly it drives me a little nuts! There is no balance to a side pony tail. It is off centered and it looks like her head is going to tip over because it is so one sided! That is the photographer side of me looking at everything as if it was a picture needed balance. BEANS-- however--- loves a good side pony tail. She is far more free spirited then I am because she loves how it makes her feel and how it makes her want to shake her head side to side and be a little more silly when she has an off centered off balanced pony tail with no counter tail on the other side making it into a pig tail. She loves that freedom. ((AGAIN)) I don't like the side pony tail. I DO--- however--- Love my beans and want her to grow up with her own opinions and thoughts and not try to make her into me. She is perfect and maybe what makes me so imperfect is the fact that I don't like side pony tails. So as a way of compromising I have come up with more than just a side pony tail. As a matter of fact I came up with three ways of making more than just a side pony. To try and give her the freedom of hair choice and give me the control and balance I long for as well.

Welcome to my ode to the side pony tail. Over the next three days you will see my three ways of doing a side pony tail. Hopefully we all endure and enjoy this time of experimenting. What are your thoughts of the side pony tail?

  1. I'm excited to see what you've come up with. I'm not crazy about high side ponies (too 80's or something), but I LOVE low off-centered hairdos in the back--not necessarily plain ponies, but I love flipped up braids, buns, etc. near the nape of the neck and off to one side.

  3. Hmmm... I've never done one on my girls. I used to wear them, but they remind me of the 80's... so, I'm curious to see how you've spruced it up!
    I can't wait!!!

  4. I loathe side ponytails. They remind me of how much I looked like a dork growing up....I do like the really low ones with curls, like the celebrities wear, but still....you are a good Mama for indulging your Beans :)

  5. Personally, I love a good side-pony. I like alot of hair-dos off to the side. I much prefer a low side-pony over a regular pony anyday! By the way...I love the changes on your website!

  7. Not a big fan, my mom used to do them on me all the time. I have very thick hair and it was pass my bottom, so side ponys HURT!
    My little girl likes them too. A lot!
    I can't wait!

  8. When picturing a side pony, all I can think of is my embarrassing childhood. They are not my favorite, unless it is a more sophisticated version of it that my sister wears, I call it "the Grecian Goddess". Next time she does it, I'll take a picture and send it to you.
