    Should USA's Jason Brown cut or keep his ponytail? Your thoughts?

    It's very unorthodox and usually if something is unorthodox it will go. Like Rippon's curls went but they did come back.

    I remember when Morozov had Rippon's curls straightened.

    It's the skating that counts, but appearances do make fans and some judges twinge.

    Joubert's sail costume for Christofer Columbus
    Weir's busy sequins and beads

    I would prefer ALL skaters to wear black skirts for females, and black trousers for males, with black sweaters and white dickies underneath. Oh dear, the response from the female fans would be overwhelming. Figure Skating would lose its pagaent-like form of sport.

    It's up to Jason. I'm sure he will cut it at some time in the future for a new look. Meanwhile, I'll keep to the skating.

    I'd let Jason make his own decision, but if he's having trouble rotating his 3A, an extra asymmetrical pound or two of hair whipping around is probably not the world's best idea. It wouldn't make a huge difference, but I'd probably cut it off for now.

    He can always put it up in a top knot while skating.

    Did´t Rohene Ward have a ponytail and difficulties with his jumping? At least he did not ever make a podium even at Nationals, or did he?

    The problem here is that this could really accentuate body types that vary from the "ideal," and let's face it, this is an ARTISTIC sport. Taking the art out would make it a trick competition, which I think you'd like, but most wouldn't. And I think the thicker women would really complain about having to wear a solid color with a sweater that bulked up their waist.

    As for the hair, I agree with the poster above that he should only cut it if he wants to, and not because others want him to.

    Keep the pony tail! Cut it when you want to.

    As for attire for ladies, I would appreciate black dress, any shape or style, no or minimal stones for SP. Then, FS can be typical skating costume. Same concept for men.

    It doesn't matter because Jason's hair is always clean and neat when I've seen him skate.

    Other competitors with long hair (male and female) don't always present their hair nicely. While some people like the look of "I rolled out of bed and onto the ice without showering/shaving/brushing my hair," I don't care for the look. I also dislike watching them fling the hair out of their eyes so they can see where they're going.

    Jason's hair is not an issue at this point, imo. He can wear it however he wants to - it's iconic and unique.
    If he wants to cut it short, he should do so in the summer - short hair is nice and cool, assuming he gets out of the rink and off to the beach/pool a few times.
