I am 48 and would feel like Baby Jane Hudson if I wore them! keiraz 7 years I think one should not be addressed and "supposed to look a certain way just because I reached a certain age, unless then, a woman also MUST be married before she reaches her menopause otherwise she's acting "improperly" too!! MamaD 7 years For little girls only!!!! Do you hear that Tori Spelling???? saruuh 8 years pigtails work great for me when i don't feel like washing my hair; but i do feel like i'm too old for them and i'm only 25. books-and-shoes 8 years I agree its in how you wear them. I've got pigtails today in fact and I'm 26. books-and-shoes 8 years I agree its in how you wear them.I've got pigtails today in fact and I'm 26. zc 8 years its all about how they are done..though it would be odd to see an old lady rocking tails! SpanishRose 8 years Do grown women actually wear them?! queencessjosie 8 years I wouldn't dare wear these to an interview or an audition. I wouldn't wear them to a special occasion. Why not just use ONE elastic and put your hair up in that? So I'm going to say, keep them on girls 10 and below. However, I can understand when one has very, very short hair. leeluvfashion 8 years Low and loose pigtails are okay however I hate the "little girl" pigtails when worn on adults or teens. It really depends on the persons haircut and the style of pigtails. leeluvfashion 8 years Low and loose pigtails are okay however I hate the "little girl" pigtails when worn on adults or teens.

It's quick and easy. I have naturally curly hair and even though I wear it straight most days, somedays I just don't want to fool with my hair but its kinked up a little during the night at the top, so I would have to smooth it out again just to put it in a pony tail, but low pigtails fixes the problem without me having to "style" my hair for a day. I think it just depends on your personality and face structure and the occasion. I wouldn't wear pigtails to work, but on the weekends or after work, absolutely! uptowngirl1999 8 years It's all is how you style them. There are simple ways to make pigtails look not some childish. Try the bed head approach or some messy braided pigtails--think long and whispy. :-) Rachiepop 8 years It all depends on where they're placed, who you are, what you're wearing and where you're wearing them. I've got a friend who has short straight hair, and she always wears little spunky pigtails down at the back sides during the Summer when she goes outside. They look fine, but I've got another friend who because of her more mature appearance, but childish nature just doesn't seem right in them. gruaig_rua 8 years I saw a girl of 27 at work yesterday wearing pigtails and I definitely thought they were a no-no. intensebandgeek 8 years I think older people can pull off french braided pigtails, in fact I think it looks good! But if they're not braided and they're high on your head...I think that look should stop when you're 9. sapphiresecret 8 years Adults in pigtails look plain stupid. IMHO. psangel 8 years I believe it depends on how your wear it! pk9000 8 years My Indigenous friend in her 30s looks just fine in pigtails. Me, not so much. SWD 8 years I think pigtails are so cute. You can't wear them everyday to work or things like that, but for fun it's all nice and such. SWD 8 years I think pigtails are so cute.
