The ponytail is a popular hairstyle among those with long hair, not just for style reasons, but for function as well. Those who are particularly active can be hindered by their hair covering their eyes, overheating the napes of their necks, and generally just being in the way. This is where the ponytail shines, as it not only neatly puts and keeps your hair in a tidy position but also gives you a bit more polished and refined look too.
Because he’s waving that huge weapon around, Sol Badguy (from the Guilty Gear franchise) can’t afford any mistakes, that’s why he’s wisely chosen to keep his long hair in place.
