Awhile back when I had hair extensions, I had my friend put my hair in two ponytails. This was when I realized that without constant bleaching of the roots and with the pinch braids showing, having my hair put in ponytails or pigtails didn't look right. Here are a couple of photos of my hair in ponytails.
My current hair is just past my shoulders and is dark brunette. The hair extensions have been removed for quite some time.
