Can Adult Women Wear Pig Tails?


I wore pig tails today. Mainly because my hair is too short to be put in a ponytail, and long enough that it goes in my face all the time. I’ve been teaching the pottery wheel lately, so it’s difficult when my hair flies in my face, so I have to push it out of the way with my clay hand. Yuck.
So, pig tails. I received many comments such as, “Oh! I thought you were a student!” and “I thought you looked young before!” and “You look like a kid!”
Is it wrong of me to “look like a kid” and wear pig tails? I kind of don’t care and feel like it’s my culture’s problem for associating pig tails with kids. Why should I limit my style for culture? Is that bad?
