  • Sure! Why not? Have fun! I remember a few years back braided pig tails were very trendy. Not sticking out of the sides of your head, more down your shoulders.

  • I don't do pigtails. I would feel silly with them. I'm far too old to be sporting that look. Some people can carry it off though. DD looks cute with pigtails though.

  • I've done it. People have called me crazy/dumb/dorky/any other comment of disapproval. Not that I care what other people think. I guess the question is, do you really care if people think you look dorky? BTW I am older than you are and it is a fashion no-no for someone my age to wear pigtails. Of course, I don't care all that much of fashion and what's in style either.

  • I would do it. Who cares what others think. As long as you love it, that's what matters.

  • If you are wearing them high up like a little girl I think they look silly, but I think low ones are fine for women in their 20s! My older dd is almost 12 and getting into different hairstyles. Lately I've been doing a style on my hair (french twist, peacock, etc.) and then teaching her how to do it on her hair. I'll be 40 this year - too old for pigtails!

  • My boys like it when I do pigtails. They like to sit and twirl them. My DD doesn't care too much, but will rave if I do it cosplay style.

  • Ever see NCIS? Abby carries off pigtails in style.

  • Yeah, not for me but do what makes you and your DD happy.

  • im 28 and i still wear pigtails sometimes. never the high up on my head ones like i give my DD, but low ones. its the easiest way to get my hair off my neck (its too short for a solid ponytail). i also rock them anytime i go to a sports event or do something outdoorsy. dont worry what other ppl think, its none of their business!
