Did ponytails originate with White females?

Hi. I asked this question: https://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20190202121610AAKmup7 I am doing research on pop hairstyles for a project. I am interested in learning what hairstyles are popular with White females. I have tried asking people if ponytails originated with White females, but no one has answered it. Please help- thank you.

Oh boy

In Europe in the second half of the 18th century, most men wore their hair long and tied back with a ribbon into what we would now describe as a ponytail,[1] although it was sometimes gathered into a silk bag rather than allowed to hang freely. At that time, it was commonly known by the French word for "tail", queue. It continued as the mandatory hairstyle for men in all European armies until the early 19th century, after most civilians had stopped wearing queues
