    Est-il nécessaire de dire
    -she puts her hair in a ponytail / she's got her hair pulled back in a ponytail
    Ou peut-on simplement dire
    -She's got a ponytail

    Thanks !
     
  2. Her hair is in a ponytail?

    If you are describing her to someone else, it is fine to say:
    She's got a ponytail.
    She has a ponytail.

    "Her hair is in a ponytail" is fine with me, but "She's got a ponytail" is OK, too. "She puts her hair in a ponytail" is also fine, if you want to say that she fixes her hair like that every day or quite often, etc. There's nothing wrong with "She's got her hair pulled back in a ponytail", except that it's wordy, and you could just as well say, "She's got her hair in a ponytail."
