The Evolution Of The Pigtail

Pigtails have become my go-to hair style lately; it's perfect for my transitioning length since my hair doesn't fit well into a ponytail yet. Ironically I was inspired to try the style out after a conversation with my sister when she remarked that she was "too old to wear [her] hair in pigtails now." I silently began to consider if I was also too old for the style, but then I recalled Brigitte Bardot, various Ye-Ye pop stars, and even the more current Alexa Chung all rocking the hair style with aplomb. Pigtails don't have to be tied to juvenile styles but in fact have many connotations and it's only our current culture that views them as something more suited for children. I don't see the point in being too confined to wear a hair style I find both fun and practical, so pigtails it is for me this summer--ideally I'll be back in braids some day...

  4. Pigtails are my go-to beach hairstyle -- and I agree it's perfect for a transitional length. When I was growing out my pixie I utilized that hairstyle a lot.

  6. I think the way your wear your pigtails makes them look mature in the best way possible. Your style is so classy that pigtails can fit in seamlessly.

  7. Hello.
    Your hair looks adorable like this. I wore pig tails when I grew my hair out in my early 30s, the only annoying thing about it was that some people, men, thought it was okay to pull them (maybe they bring out the boy in men?)
