Like every other 7 year old girl in 1997, I had a huge obsession with the Spice Girls. In particular, Baby Spice. I wanted to be just like her- I begged my mom to let me buy size 5 women’s platform shoes (“I’ll grow into them! They’re not THAT big!”), sucked on the official Spice Girls Chupa Chups lollipops (Baby’s brand of choice for her ever-present lollipop) and made my mom style my hair into little pigtails just the way she wore hers. I LOVED pigtails.

As I got older though, I decided they were too juvenile. Wanting to look like a more mature adult (as most teens do), I said goodbye to my favorite childhood hairstyle. I doubted I’d ever wear pigtails in my adult life. But then Prada’s Spring 2010 show happened. I saw the pigtails and I swooned…I immediately went and styled my hair into pigtails once again. I had finally realized my love for grown-up pigtails.

Brigitte Bardot and Anna Karina are the perfect inspiration for how to rock sexy, playful pigtails.

The best way to rock cute, flirty pigtails when you’re over the age of 12 is to keep it cheeky- wear them with a playful ensemble that’s a balance between sexy and cute.
