Bring it Back or Let it Go? The Ponyhawk

Am I the only one whose hair feels like a hat when it's hot outside? Based on your reaction to my Seven Things No One Tells You post, I'm not alone. I'm always looking for new ways to pull my hair up so I don't feel so suffocated.

Because I'm so prone to miserable headaches, it's important I balance the distribution of the weight of my hair or I won't make it through the day. This means that a regular pony won't work all day. Braids tend to help take the weight off of my scalp, but who has time for that?

Enter the Ponyhawk clip. Don't call it a banana! This version is smaller, prettier and not flimsy or neon. It offers a slightly wider "base" than the signature 80's accessory. It gives the look of a very long pony, with a little bit of vertical lift off of the head. Embrace the ponyhawk!

It's super easy, doesn't give me a headache and based on the reaction in my office, it's not (that) reminiscent of the 80's. I know that Meredith of Retrodiva's Beauty will not agree, but I bet she'll rock one when she thinks no one is looking...

What do you think? Would you try a ponyhawk or pass? Tell me in the comments and vote!

  1. I would need to see a photo of someone wearing one of these prior to casting my vote. My gut is telling me - no way!

  2. I will proudly rock one in public. Let's make a concentrated effort to bring this bad boy back - I'm tired of the topknot anyway.

  3. I second the need to see it in use!

  4. I bought one of these and wear it fairly often. It is very different from the '80s nanner clip - because of the way it's built you can't get a traditional banana fall from it.
    I like mine and use it on Day 2 of a wash after I've curled my hair :)

  5. I am growing my hair out and it is in that crap-tastic phase of just enough length to get in my face but not yet long enough to cut the style I'm after. I live in Phoenix and the summer here is brutal. Hair in and on your face is just not an option. I just bought a 3 pack of these and they are the bomb. I'm not wearing them out of the house; I have other styling accessories for public. But around the house they are great. Keeps the hair up and away without pulling out your eyeballs and breaking every hair on your head. My hair is fine and straight but fairly thick. This is the least damaging thing I've found for pulling it back. If you are on the fence about this, just do it. They are cheap as dirt at drugstores and will give your hair a break from pony elastics and so forth.
