my hair is at a really annoying length and looks a total mess when its just there. its 2 short to tie up on its own with 1. im 28 and want it out the way. am i too old

yeah, i'd say that's a bit too old for bunches.

Many will say you are, but I don't think so. I am also growing my hair out and it will only tie in bunches and frankly in this weather I need it tied back. I'm also 4 years older than you too

To be honest, I think bunches are only for children, so I will have to say yes.

I think you might be for two bunches sticking out of the side of your head, but not for two that are tied at the shoulder and sort of fall down the front of your shoulders. IYSWIM.
I don't think i've explained myself well blush

No not in my opinion. A friend of mine is 40 and very attractive she just about gets away with it still.

At 28 you're a baby smile

starshaker Sun 31-May-09 12:46:04

they are very close together and u can only see them at the back. hair isnt long enough for them to come down my shoulders. Think im gonna just do it. its too hot and it goes all frizzy. cant wait for it to be long again

trendy bunches with the ties quite low down in the bunch fine imo

tight ones only for children

brimfull Sun 31-May-09 12:47:15

not like this

belgo Sun 31-May-09 12:47:42

Go on do it. I thought you were going to say you were much older then 28! I'm 32 and sometimes wear my hair in bunches.

You'll hardly notice it, if you like it go for it!

I always wear my long hair in a side ponytail which my mum insists looks daft but she is a massive fan of the 'Pob' so I reckon we are evens

I'm 22 BTW but don't see how age matters as long as you are not doing the top of the head type bunches. LOL.

Go for it!! I wear mine in bunches and I'm 45....and I have purple streaks grin grin

KingCanuteIAm Sun 31-May-09 13:01:35

What about a half pony at the top then bring it all into a full pony at the bottom IYSWIM? Not perfect but a bit less child like than bunches?

janeite Sun 31-May-09 18:08:42

I like bunches and am much older than you. In fact I wore mine in two knotted bunches for work last week and was told by several people how nice it looked. I think the key is to keep them fairly low down and smooth.

starshaker Sun 31-May-09 22:56:39

well i wore my hair like that and people said i looked so much better. it also controlled it when i was attacked with a bucket of water lol
