Very young girls wear pigtails because their mothers comb their hair. Of course, this is because the hairstyle is easy and moms just want their girls to look cute. When the girls grow up, the pigtail hairstyle is sometimes selected by choice. This certainly applies to teenagers, but it is also true for young women as they mature into their 20s and sometimes beyond. This raises the question: “Why?” Why do young women sometimes choose to wear their hair in ponytails?

The possible reasons why pigtails are a hairstyle of choice are many, some more obvious than others. In hot weather, pulling your hair out of your head is a cooler way to do it, and ponytails help tremendously. When a girl is short on time and needs to get her hair done in a jiffy, ponytails are quick and easy. Ladies can wear pigtails as a fashion statement. Or they can wear them because they want to look young, playful, cute, or sexy. (And yes, pigtails can be cute and sexy at the same time.) Another possibility for pigtails is when a young girl wishes to present herself as an enigma. “Is she a good girl pretending to be bad, or a bad girl trying to look good?” Pigtails attract attention, and the more mature a woman who wears pigtails is, the more attention those pigtails get.

So why do pigtails attract attention? Let’s start with the reasons why men like pigtails. (Okay, not all men enjoy pigtails, but most do, even if it’s secret.) Ponytails represent youth and, in our society, youth is attractive. Like I said earlier, pigtails are cute and sexy, and what man doesn’t like when a woman shows something cute and sexy? Some men fall for the riddle thing: “Why is this lady wearing pigtails? What is she up to?” Other men, myself included, see a woman in pigtails and think, “Wow, this lady is really special.” But pigtails also attract the attention of other women, who react in the same way as men, but with possible additional thoughts like, “It’s a girl!”, Or “Wow, I wish I had the guts to wear pigtails! “. “

So, we see here that there are heaps of reasons for braids to be appreciated by both wearers and braid watchers. But I’ll close with what pigtails mean to me. For me, a grown woman with her hair up screams confidence. This is a fun loving, outgoing, bold, and confident lady. She likes what she has, but she knows what else she wants and is determined to get it. This is a woman with a very high self-esteem. There are women all over the world capable of being dream girls, but it takes a truly special woman to have the confidence to be a dream girl with braids.
