Do or Don't

I've tried, I really have, to rock the pigtail look. I've done them high, I've done them low, I've made them messy, I've made them straight but for the life of me, I can't get my pigtails to look good!
Honestly, I've given up on them. They're offically a don't in my book.
But what about you? Do you rock them? Or do you leave that up to little girls?

I only do pigtails around the house :)

Olivia said...

to be honest, I don't like them at all. I love them on little girls but thats about it, I guess I feel like when I see them now it makes me think of someone trying to look like a 6 year old. Not a fan... :)

I think some women can rock them for sure but I don't believe I'm one of them. I can't get mine to look good either!!!

Lorena said...

I like them but feel a little too girly.
I do wear them however when I go to the beach. I wear them loose... :)

Miss Anne said...

i only rock them with a hat, and messy braids....

i can't handle them up high and in public... usually this is accompanied with a bad outfit, too short of shorts and/or cartoon tshirts.

I can't get them to work either. Maybe they look ok but I feel like a 5 year old.
Love the last photo, makes me crave the ocean...

Nope. I just can't pull them off. I feel like they make me look like a child or like I am trying too hard to look cutsie.

I think pigtail braids can be really cute. Some of those pictures are successful, I think, but I don't like the "trying to be a sexy little girl look" in the first pic--eww! :)

I cant pull them off! I just look silly with them:)
Great photos...Those girls look great:)
Have a fun day:)

I think they are ok at the beach...I love wearing 2 braids, but will only do it for sporting events and such.

Marcie said...

I definitely can't do this look. Everyone else looks so cute, but not me. Great pictures!

definitely NOT a good look on me! I look a good 10 years younger and my face looks super round! I like the pictures you posted tho, so I guess there are other women who can definitely rock this look!

Olivia said...

All the girls look great, but if I tried it I'd look really silly

Catherine said...

Mary said...

PS - Those bars are a healthy treat so it doesn't count towards breaking your diet!!!! You can always justify a little sugar ;)

I wish I could pull off the pigtail look, but have only done it around the house. They don't seem to look right on me. :(

Suyinsays said...

Simply Mel said...

Absolutely love pigtails ~ but not all the time. Seems the messier the better for me.

Trish said...

Hi Jen! Missed you! I am a big fan of a side pony tail, but I can't pull off pigtails, just looks silly on me :) I bet you could totally pull it off!

Helena - A Diary of Lovely said...

no definitely nt, they really don't work for me, I look like 5 hahhaa
love all these though! they can pull it off with great grace

Stevi said...

The only time I do pigtails is when I am going to the lake + camping for a few days, then I braid them. So it's pretty cute....OK not really, but a girl can dream. Some women do look very cute in pigtails, but I'm not one of them.

Some Style... said...

oh, still have a few childhood and teenage pics of me in pigtails! had really thick hair back than, not any more! Cryyy, hehe! ;) have than very short now, so no chance!

Lady Grey said...

I actually like the way they look on me.... except that they make me look like a child. Seriously.... I could pass as 13 with them! So, alas, I never rock them either!

Hope Chella said...

I haven't rocked them since college, when I used to straighten my hair sometimes. Initially I though no, but why not? A casual night out or day sounds great if you look cute :)

Jessi Haish said...

I've been growing out my hair and it's at an awkward stage so I'll do small ones every once a while. I feel like a dork, but they don't look terrible and my boyfriend always says how much he loves them! Crazy!

Miz.November said...

I wear pigtails only for the hubby. ;)

Stephanie said...

I used to but I haven't since the kiddos came along ... it was time to let it go! But I was a wear-'em-low girl.

Mi Vida Bonita said...

I can only do them with a hat on. I do think some people can pull them off though!

Love the first image.. but girl I leave pigtails to my 4 year old niece who rocks them like a diva!

THE ALTERNATIVE WIFE said...

No I don't but I really want to. Not sure I can pull them off. I think I'm gonna go give it a try in the privacy of my own place :) xoxo

The Backseat Stylers said...

I love the pigtail work! They don't work on me either though sadly.

Cassie said...

I especially love the last pic! I wear them sometimes, but only if it's on a weekend and I'm just running errands or doing something casual.

bravegrrl said...

DO! i love pigtails!

:)

Jen said...

Since many of you had luck with pigtails, I might have to give 'em a try this weekend!
