wearing pigtails in your twenties - hot or not?

Hello! So I'm squeezing in a post for the weekend ahead because I'll be gone for the next four days! Due to privacy I'm not going to tell you where, but I will tell you where when I get back! ;) So before I take off I wanted to leave you with a little fashion post. Oh, and I also wanted to tell you all that I will be catching up on your blogs when I return! ;)

While I was in Arizona I experimented with my hair and since it's still rather short, sometimes it's nice to put it in a short pony tail to get it out of my eyes. About a month ago my hair wasn't even long enough to put in a pony tail though, can you believe that?! I've decided to grow my hair back and was thrilled when it was long enough to recently put it up.

I can't remember exactly when I was glancing through a magazine or which magazine I was glancing through, but I saw an actress wearing pigtails. I wasn't sure before that point if a gal in her late twenties could still pull it off, you know? But after seeing that picture and then going on my Facebook to find a picture of my adorable cousin in her 30s also sporting pigtails, I had no doubt that I could pull it off too. Plus, why does a magazine or a family member have to reassure me by me locating a picture of them, that I can have pigtails in my hair?! I should have just gone with it regardless because I wanted to! So sure enough, I decided to be bold and go against my fashion fear: I wore pigtails and they were liberating! ;)
It was fun wearing pigtails and I suddenly felt even younger and carefree! ;) So I went hunting on the internet for some other pigtail inspired pictures, and this is what I came up with:
When my hair is this long again, I am bound and determined to wear pigtails like this. So light, flowy, and gorgeous! This picture is my favorite.
Saving the best for last, I love this shot of Zooey and her pigtails. She always looks adorable though, no matter what she looks like.

So my question for you is, are you comfortable wearing pigtails in your twenties and beyond? 

Do you like the pigtail hair style or do you think it makes a woman look too much like a young girl? Or maybe that is the point?!

I'm still torn. Sometimes I like wearing them, but then I go out and sometimes feel insecure that I have pigtails in my hair. I guess I don't mind wearing them occasionally, because after all, a girl has to be playful, fun, and young at heart. Pigtails definitely bring out the newness of summer and all of the fun and adventure there is to come!

Have a fabulous weekend!

  1. Catching up...haha. So yes, for pigtails, and now you are never too old for those, except maybe when you decide to not color your hair anymore and let it be gray and then it just looks awful. Maybe in your late 30s and then from 40s on it just gets weird. But yes, pigtails are fun. I like them when the hair is shorter though. Just like in your pics. The first picture is good too, but that's about it with the long hair.
    I'm a little hippie at heart so pigtails give me that feeling and I think it is totally okay!! glad you decided to go for them. :) I should too, since I cut my hair (though it's not as short as yours). But since it's rather cold over here right now I decided not to. I need a hat instead. LOL

    Have a fun trip girl. Miss you.

  2. You look adorable! I honestly only wear them every now and again when I run, as I really don't have the hair for them to actually look cute, but I think they are adorable no matter what age!

  7. I think piggy tails are fine - for me, I have to wear them really low or else I look 12, but I love them! And you look adorable with them!

  9. You look ADORABLE with pigtails!! It doesn't look childish at all! In fact, it actually looks quite chic on you. :)

    I have only worn my hair in pigtails once since being in my 20s. I liked the look (it was messy like the first few photos of celebs you posted) and I have not been able to duplicate it since! Ugh. I need to keep trying! You've inspired me. :)

  10. I think they are hot! Love the shot of Zooey. She does always look cute no matter what. Do you remember the girlfriend from the Bourne series? At the end of the movie she was wearing pig tails and I thought it wad adorable. :D

  15. Lovely to "see" you since the Unravelling course! I love wearing pigtails and I am past my 20's. I wouldn't wear them to a board meeting...but I do love to sport them at my spin classes. I am looking forward to keeping up with you through your blog....

  16. I do it sometimes. Emily Browning from "Sucker Punch" really inspired me!

  17. Hmm. . . Pigtails? All I know is I would never be able to rock 'em as you cute as you have yours. If I wa able to successfuly sport the pigtail, I would do the messy laid-back girl look like how Vanessa Hudgens has hers.

  18. Mhm.. I would say I do not wear confortable wearing pigtails only if that is some kind of formal event that I have to go. In any other case I feel good and comfy - I even think that cute pigtails can add that charm and make you look fresh and girly, and that is what I like... Flirty looks is always good ;)

  19. I truly adore pigtails and actually found myself wearing them a lot more when my hair was short! I wore them in a sort of edgy way, which I loved. You have inspired me to give it a try again with my long hair! (my husband actually likes my hair in pigtails a lot too!) I love your hair like this, you look beautiful!

  22. I think they are really cute and those pictures show that you can wear them even in your late twenties. I haven't worn them in a few years but I might just try it again :)

  23. I haven't worn pigtails in a while but now I think I might soon! I don't think you're ever too old for pigtails!!

  24. I like loose braids better for 20's and older.

  25. They look fabulous on you!!! I don't think a lot of people can pull it off, but you do!

    Like you said, it's about being playful, and feeling young at heart. I love that attitude, and I'm sure that's what people are gonna see.

    Do think twice about wearing them, they look adorable!

    Love, Rocio
