Pigtails



Whaddya think of older women in pigtails? I saw a lady the other day wearing pigtails, and she had to be in her 60's. Maybe I am the only one that finds this look strange/inappropriate on older women? Hmmmmmmmm.

Char said...

LOL yeah...maybe a bit

ick. i think 20-30 has to be the cut off point for pigtails.

it is a little weird...which sucks! Because I always loved to put my hair in pigtails...I don't want to stop doing ANYTHING because I'm too old! What a bummer...

Pretty Little World said...

There's probably a really sophisticated way to do pigtails, but I guess I don't know what it is...

Diane said...

I think it's strange lookin' for an older woman to sport some pigtails. Especially in this photo (haha, I love the photos you choose, they always fit so perfectly with your topics!). I say NO!

A French twist would be better...who started to name it PIGTAIL anyway?! hah...must be those animal lovers!

Diana said...

Pigtails on older ladies is bizarre. I think it's an LA thing. It's not whimsical or cute, it's ugly and weird!!

Namine said...

depends on the person and the age. I think when your younger you should have long hair, but when your old definitely chop it off long gray hair is just unappealing. sorry to those who have it

um ......no. Well, I guess there is ONE day of the year they could possibly pull it off ...October 31st.

It's just creepy if you are over the age of 12. Creepier if your hair is curly.
I'm just sayin'.

Mermaid said...

I occasionally rock the pigtails, but I'm 18 so I think it's different.

Connie Hsiu said...

i personall find it kinda creepy.


anyhoo haha, thank you so much for checking in...youre such a doll!!! ive missed all of yah, im so glad im back

clorivak said...

Yeah...it just kinda seems like they are trying to hard or something. Its not cute anymore after a certain point, just disturbing in a weird way.

Ha!

Missy said...

Living in the land of hillbillies and rednecks, I can say NO! After 19, forget it!

Paul Pincus said...

LOL! love it ... why not?!

frances said...

i find it WEIRD, but i have seen it on many older folk x

thereddeer said...

Pigtails are not for the old. Sorry oldies :P

down and out chic said...

i don't know, i think it would depend on the person. all i know is, as soon as my hair gets long enough, i'm putting it up in two little pigtails (granted, i'm not in my 60's ...)

Clare said...

no, it looks well weird if a lady is over 20. I have an eccentric friend in England who dyes her hair bright red and puts it in pigtails. I tell her its strange too and she laughs at me. She still follows a band all around the country too, so she is an eccentric 38 year old groupie (without the sex bit)

Charlotte said...

My 3 year old rocks pig tails, but anyone else is a stretch. I have very kinky hair so it would look sooo weird on me. I saw a woman in her 30s the other day with with "pig tails" sticking out of the top of her head, she looked like a ladybug. Freaked my shit out, I actually swerved my mini-van. What was she thinking?!

fabulous everything said...

LOL i duno it scares me.. it makes me think they are stuck in their childhood or it gives them some sort of creepy scary movie vibe. lol..

sexypoet said...

i find it just as strange as when they grow their hair long and wear braids.. just to rednecky. i think over 50 should be sporting shorter cute, current styles.

Eeli said...

Oh NO! Most definately not the only one. I feel it strange but I am all for freedom of many kinds so even though I don't particularly like the look aslong as these women enjoy it then that is fine! :)

Unacceptable past 21.

Pigtails are so impractical that the only reason I can imagine someone wearing them is trying to fulfill some male schoolgirl fantasy. Or maybe I'm just grumpy because it's Sunday night.

Dan W Johnson said...

Not a fan of the pigtails--actually find them annoying. For what it's worth...

Penny said...

I don't really like pigtails on little kids either,so maybe I'm not a good one to comment.But this picture alone is a major deterrent against grown up pigtails.

Diane said...

nope, that's just not right.
