There is nothing quite as perfect as second-day hair: not too coiffed but not yet messy. It's the epitome of model-off-duty tresses. But when the third day rolls around and our flowy waves turn into messy tangles, we attempt to hide our unruly, unwashed locks by throwing them in a low ponytail. But according to Pinterest's analytics team, this hairstyle is not just a means to hide dirty hair but rather a very popular option, as ponytails are trending up 40% on the website.
