The most popular style right now is probably the short pony. Thor star Chris Hemsworth rocks a slicked back and short ponytail that makes the ladies swoon. Chord Overstreet from Glee was recently on Ellen representing a short male ponytail too!

Male athletes are no stranger to the male ponytail. Soccer star (and certified heartthrob) David Beckham often sports a high ponytail on and off the field! Bradley Cooper has also been seen in a shaggy, high ponytail too. Seriously though- how cute is that little, high ponytail? Most guys can't make this look work!

The Bun: Charlie Hunnam

The Double Pony: Snoop Dogg

What's better (or worse depending on your ponytail preference) than one ponytail? TWO! For as long as I can remember, Snoop Dogg has always styled his hair in double (or more) ponytail braids.
