I came across this awesome graphic today and just had to ask: when do you think a girl/woman gets too old for pigtails? From looking at this, I think the line could probably be drawn somewhere around the Miley Cyrus area of the spectrum.
I'll admit, I occasionally wear them, but only under a hat (less messy than leaving it loose) or around the house (which I think puts me on the chart at maybe the Zooey Deschanel zone -- er, at least, I hope). Other than that, I think there are much better options for keeping your hair out of your face and looking cute -- like any of these braided hairstyles or these fun ponytails.
The creator of this graphic below argues that pigtails give off a Lolita vibe -- do you agree? Where would you put yourself on this pigtails spectrum?
- Trying to look more adult -- maybe for a job interview? Then you must read these tips.
- Couldn't care less about looking mature? Then this trend was made for you.
- This is the one time you really don't want to look like a child -- creeeeeepy.
