  • Well, I stopped my doing my daughter's at age 4 because she said she was too big! I think as long as the kid wants it, do it. Even older kids look cute with pig tails. :-)

  • I stopped doing her hair around 9-10 years old but when she wanted pig tails I would help her. She had very short hair in high school. But after high school she was 17-years old, she started to wear pig tails again. She looked so young and cute.
    Her Bf asked her to stop wearing her like that because he looked like her father LOL

  • Pig tails are cute!
    So as long as your DD will let you do it- then do it.

  • Your daughter will help you with that one, when she's grown. They usually start pulling them out slowley as they get older. My Besties daughter is 4 and once in awhile well see her without em so we know Boo Boo is getting close to where she don't like em. She'll be almost 5 soon. Hoped I helped :)
