To think women over the age of 21 should not wear their hair in bunches?

It looks ridiculous.
and not cooky or cute or fun.

Hesitate to use the word 'should' (for fear of being seen as judgey wink), but in general, yes I totally agree.

I also find ponytails in anyone over 30 ridiculous. I think I may be alone on that one though.

LOL grin

What about Whigfield?

hmm I don't know. If they are low down and not tied with ribbons or anything pink or fluffy I think they can look alright. Not on me, I look stoopid, but some people suit them.

I saw a woman today in her mid 30s driving along with her kids in the car, dressed ver sensibly but with very stupid hair.
I could see her bunches poking out each side of her head rest, i was mesmerised.

I also hate little girl hair ornaments on adult women too. There was a fashion a few years ago for teeny weeny little hairslides in candy colours and Hello Kitty type stuff. DD was just starting school - I was amazed at how easy it was to buy suitable hairstuff for her hmm

Paedophile chic.

Nonsense, I wore pigtail plaits until I was 26. May do again (30) if my hair is ever long enough.
(Wistfully remembers looking, kooky, cute, and fun).

yes you are a fogey :P

DoubleBluff Fri 24-Oct-08 15:11:49

The only time they might look OK is if you are some sort of street entertainer or similar!

Hooray for the op!

Aah merci blush!!!

Some days I wear my curly and insane hair in plaits, and occasionally when it is straightened I wear it in bunches. I am 26.

And I am viewing those of you who have said yes as Judgey McTurnupnoses! grin

Are we allowed to on holiday then? Or never ever?

I wear low bunches on holiday, and I'm way way over 21. When it's very hot, and shoulder length hair feels sweaty, low bunches are the way to go because you can wear a sunhat over the top of them, and lie back on a sunlounger without a ponytail or beret thing hurting your head. That's my argument. I'm sticking to it.

Am I ostracised now?

I am 28 and still wear my hair in bunches occasionally, they are very short bunches though, i wouldnt wear longer ones.

I do dress quite young generally though and look younger then i am.

Some women look old at 28, if i was one of them i wouldnt do it.

And by beret, I of course mean berrette/clippy claspy thing to hold up twisted hair at the back, not a flat woollen french hat - they are no good for sunbathing.

MrsMattie Fri 24-Oct-08 15:25:06

I think some women get away with it.

lulabellarama Fri 24-Oct-08 15:25:41

I look GREAT with my hair in bunches, when it's long enough. And my OH loves it.

codtrolfreaky Fri 24-Oct-08 15:26:44

op, 21 is way too generous..... think 15 should be the cut off.

misshardbroom Fri 24-Oct-08 15:34:48

if there's any grey there, then it's a HUGE no-no.

FfreckleFface Fri 24-Oct-08 15:35:49

I am one of those women, MrsMattie. My nose full of freckles helps, to be fair.

childrenofthecornsilk Fri 24-Oct-08 15:36:19

No-one gets away with it. Really. It's like wearing short skirts past 30.
