Finally! I can do a ponytail. A few pieces from the front were about an inch too short, and came out a time or two during the day, but I didn't care. I felt HOT today, LOL. It's funny how something so simple as a change of hairstyle can change a woman's mood. And it's not like it's a sexy hairstyle or anything, so I don't know why it made me feel like this. Oh, and I wore HEELS today (anybody that knows me well would be shocked at that).
Edited March 21: In the interest of full disclosure, and after a private message from a sweet lady on Napp.com
I did do the above ponytail when my hair was wet. My hair in the front doesn't quite reach, and the wet hair probably partially disguised that. Below is what my hair looks when I do a ponytail with dry hair (which is why a ponytail has not yet become a staple hairstyle, lol).
