Allure go back in time to show us the history of the ponytail over the last one hundred years.

We get to see how it evolved over the 20th century in this interesting video. It started way back in 1920s as an alternative to the iconic “Gibson Girl” look. The hairstyle changed to reflect the culture of the time. It became an important feature of the understated hairstyle of the 40s, which reflected the money-saving war effort and meager fashion of World War Two America.

Ponytails and pigtails became an expression of Black Pride in the 70s and a sign of the consumeristic 80s. Britney Spears popularised the high double-pigtail style in the 90s and Ariana Grande brought back the style in a big way in the 2010s. It’s a hairstyle that has ebbed and waned in popularity over the years but has always managed to make big comebacks. It’s an interesting video from Allure that gives some well deserved screen time to one of the most popular hairstyles in the world.
