It's very sassy looking. I had been wanting a ponytail cap since I first saw them in the catalog. But I hesitated to buy one because of it being mesh. I was hoping that it would look as good as or better than in the photos. Unfortunately, it's difficult to keep it on my head because the lining is kind of slick. Tightening it doesn't help. Caps made from cotton fabrics are best. The demonstrator is a dear friend. I really don't want to tell her about it. But I paid A LOT more for this hat than I have any other name brand hat that I've bought. Very disappointed.
